Samuel L Jackson To Return As Nick Fury For Disney Plus Series

After the post credit scene in SPIDER-MAN:FAR FROM HOME many wondered when would be the next time we would see Samuel L. Jackson as Nick Fury back in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. While we can assume that it will be in the upcoming BLACK WIDOW  film we now know thanks to Variety that the former head of S.H.I.E.L.D will be appearing in a series currently in development at Disney Plus.

The project is in its early stages and details are being kept under wraps, but according to the trade Kyle Bradstreet (Mr. Robot) will write and executive produce and should the project be ordered to series, it would be Jackson’s first series regular television role.

He has recurred as Col. Fury on MARVEL’s AGENTS OF S.H.I.E.L.D on ABC. 

Jackson had initially signed a nine film deal to appear throughout the Marvel Cinematic Universe which began with IRON MAN and as of most recently the aforementioned SPIDER-MAN:FAR FROM HOMEAVENGERS ENDGAME and CAPTAIN MARVEL (where we finally found out how Fury lost his eye and was required to wear the eyepatch).

First and FOREMOST this may include spoilers for Avengers Infinity War so if you dont want those come back to this article after you have seen the movie. But if you are cool with it…….HERE……WE……GO….

Now after the events of Infinity War more so the post credit scene, we saw Nick Fury use a long distance pager (yup a souped up beeper) to contact someone. We see after the transmission sends that someone is indeed  the symbol of Carol Danvers a.k.a. Captain Marvel.

We have to wait into March to get the Captain Marvel film which is an origin story set in the 90s, where we are getting Academy Award winner Brie Larson taking on the role of Danvers an air force pilot who is bestowed extraordinary abilities when she encounters the Kree warrior known as Mar-Vell who will be played by Jude Law.

One of the most important things to note is that in this film we are getting a much younger Nick Fury, played by Samuel L Jackson. Yes not the bald, eye patch wearing,, goatee sporting, black turtleneck and trench coat take no nonsense but a much younger one and with a head full of hair. Also we find out that Jackson’s character connects with Danvers during the events of her first solo prior to him losing an eye. So that means we are getting a two-eyed Nick Fury and no eye patch throughout the movie.

The Nick Fury we’ve seen so far in the Marvel Cinematic Universe is a bald-headed man, rocking an eye patch and a goatee, clad in black trench coat and turtleneck. But the one we will see on March 8, 2019 will look totally different. Few months ago, Jackson revealed that the events of Carol Danvers’ first solo outing take place prior to the one where his character lost one of his eyes – so, he won’t be putting on an eye patch in the movie.

In the photos we see that Jackson has Mo-cap dots on his face which means they will be using CGI to make him Younger as they have done with Robert Downey Jr. and Kurt Russell.

In the set leaks, he’s spotted in front of a store along with Brie Larson, who is donning her superhero’s Kree armor. We dont know if this is the first time they encounter one another but can tell that something is going on. They appear to have an argument, with the aviator-turned-superhero trying a couple of times to do a bunk, but the S.H.I.E.L.D. agent getting in the way each time. One shot finds Captain Marvel shoving Nick Fury, apparently in an attempt to hide from someone. Check out the video and photos below (via Hollywood Pipeline.com)

Captain Marvel Goes Into Production Familiar Names Join The Cast

We are officially one month away from the gigantic team up known as Avengers:Infinity War. Amidst all of the posters, trailers and tv spots we officially begin production on the latest avenger, Captain Marvel.

In a press release from Marvel Studios announcing the start of production on Captain Marvel, The stuido has confirmed 3 new cast members that are for sure to get the fans even more excited; Clark Gregg, the beloved Agent Phil Coulson from the earliest Marvel Cinematic Universe films and Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., along with Djimon Hounsou and Lee Pace, who both previously appeared in 2014’s Guardians of the Galaxy.

Hearing that Phil Coulson is in the film makes all the sense in the world given that the film is set in the 90s and features Samuel L. Jackson as a younger two-eyed Nick Fury, director of S.H.I.E.L.D. This will be the first Marvel Studios film that Gregg has appeared in since his on-screen death in 2012’s Avengers, even though he has been the lead character in  Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. after being brought back to life a few times.

Pace played Ronan the Accuser in Guardians, a member of the Kree alien race, who are central to the Captain Marvel plot. Hounsou played Korath the Pursuer, an accomplice of Ronan. Given the prominent role of the Kree in Captain Marvel mythology, a return from both characters seems like a natural fit.
