With certain other Marvel heroes getting their own Disney+ shows, now comes word on a certain eye-patched adorned fella getting his own series.
Courtesy of Variety, Samuel L. Jackson will be headlining his own Nick Fury show on Disney+. Mr. Robot’s Kyle Bradstreet will reportedly write and executive produce the series, while Jackson himself will also serve as an executive producer.
No plot details have been released just yet for this offering, although there are so many possibilities where the Nick Fury character is concerned. In terms of the current MCU landscape, Fury was last seen somewhere up in the stars during Spider-Man: Far From Home.
Nick Fury has been a part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe as long as anybody, with Jackson’s Agent of S.H.I.E.L.D. turning up during the credits of the movie that launched the MCU, Iron Man, back in 2008. Since then, we’ve seen Fury turned up in 11 of the 23 MCU films to date.
Who knows, maybe this Nick Fury show will pick things up after the ‘90s-set Captain Marvel? One obvious story to tell would be how Fury worked his way up the ranks, although maybe the de-aging technology used in that movie might be a tad too costly to use across an entire TV series.
Other Disney+ MCU shows currently on the horizon are WandaVision, The Falcon and the Winter Soldier, Loki, She-Hulk, and a series centred on Jeremy Renner's Hawkeye and his apprentice Kate Bishop.
Expect more on Nick Fury as we get it.
