Now, you'll be keeping your eyes on him...weekly...on Disney+. In a somewhat shocking bit of news, it's been confirmed today that Samuel L. Jackson would reprise his role as MCU mainstay Nick Fury for a new solo series on Disney+. This new Fury show follows a growing list of Marvel shows that are in various levels of production for the streaming service. It joins WandaVision, Falcon and the Winter Soldier, Loki, and Hawkeye along with more recent additions such as a Ms. Marvel show and a She-Hulk show (Which recently cast Tatiana Maslany as the titular character).
The series will be written and executive produced by Kyle Bradstreet with no production start date or a release date announced at this time. No plot details have been revealed either although many theorize that Fury will be forming SWORD, essentially a replacement for SHIELD which was disbanded during the events of Captain America: The Winter Soldier (Although events continued in Agents of SHIELD which has now been dubbed taking place in an alternate universe to that of the MCU). Time will tell, but this erases any speculation that Jackson's tenure in the role was coming to an end. While his nine-film contract ended with Captain Marvel, Jackson had said he was still expecting to star in future films. He immediately proved this to be true when he appeared in a brief cameo in Avengers: Endgame and had a main supporting role in Spider-Man: Far From Home. It seems that Jackson is far from done donning the eyepatch. Stay tuned!
