After 10 years on the silver screen bringing the super spy to life, Samuel Jackson is now set to star in his own Nick Fury series. Marvel’s Nick Fury seems like it’s coming at the perfect time. Fury’s own story has continued to grow over the years through post-credit scenes. What began as a cameo in the first post-credits scene of Iron Man has now become much bigger. Fury was always showing up on the side. In a post-credit scene to tease the next big story arc. Or as a supporting character in Captain America: The Winter Soldier. He also played a co-starring role in Captain Marvel.

Bridging the MCU

Most recently, both he and Maria Hill were the bridge between the Sony-owned Spider-Man films and the rest of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. He even had one guest appearance of ABC’s Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD where he handed the mantle of Director off to Agent Coulson. But, Fury has always been destined for something greater.

The last we saw of Jackson’s Agent Fury was at the end Spider-Man: Homecoming. In the post-credits scene, it was revealed the Fury and Hill we had been watching were actually Skrulls. One of them then calls the real director Fury, who appears to be on some kind of battleship somewhere in space.

A Long Way Off

It’s entirely possible that could still just be a set-up for whatever comes next in the cosmic side of the MCU. Or, it could be the start of a Nick Fury centered space epic all his own. Only time will tell what a Samuel Jackson led Nick Fury series will entail. But the announcement marks the 9th Marvel series for Disney+. With WandaVision coming out sometime this year and Falcon and the Winter Soldier slated for 2021, it’ll be a moment before we get anything concrete. We still haven’t heard anything new about the other series such as Hawkeye, Loki, Ms. Marvel, or Moon Knight.
