He’s possibly the Marvel character with the best one liners, and in addition to his hard wit and at times profanity, Nick Fury is always ready to bail out a superhero in need (even if he puts them there in the first place). Now, the former Director of S.H.I.E.L.D will have a spotlight of his own is a new series reportedly heading to Disney+.
As always, Samuel L. Jackson will reprise the role of Fury, while the project will be written and produced by Kyle Bradstreet. Details on a plot are not known at this time but it could be connected to forthcoming Marvel Cinematic Universe releases including WandaVision, which shared a trailer last week, as well as The Falcon and Winter Soldier, Loki and She-Hulk, also slated to hit the service. Other projects including the likes of Hawkeye and Moon Knight are also in the works so it is anyone’s guess where the Nick Fury instalment will sit.
At this time Disney and Jackson’s management haven’t confirmed anything as of yet. The news was learned of by sources close to Variety.
The spy character was born from the mind of Stan Lee, drawn from classic Marvel comics. Son of Jack Fury, Nick Fury became a legendary hero in the early years of World War II, taking missions into Europe. He is best known for founding the Avenger’s task force during his time as director of S.H.I.E.L.D., an international intelligence agency equipped with state-of-the-art technology by Tony Stark.
