Samuel L. Jackson to Reprise Nick Fury Role in a New Disney+ Show
It’s amazing to think how many Disney+ shows are rumored for the Marvel Cinematic Universe. So far, we are still waiting for an official announcement for shows that will air past Moon Knight, which was the last to be announced. Now, Variety drops the news that Samuel L. Jackson is set to reprise his role as Nick Fury in an upcoming Disney+ series. At first, it sounds like he’ll return in one of the currently developed series but then they add the addition of a writer. According to Variety, Kyle Bradstreet set to write and act as Executive Producer for an unnamed show.
It’s a bit confusing as at first it seems like Nick Fury will have a show focused on him. Yet, a while back we had rumors about a S.W.O.R.D. and Secret Warriors Disney+ shows being in development. Of course, there is a chance he’ll appear in both but the question which one will Bradstreet be writing. Bradstreet is known for his work on Mr. Robot, Berlin Station, and Copper. His background doesn’t scream space cops but he does have experience with strong dramas, especially with Mr. Robot.
S.W.O.R.D. is confirmed to appear in WandaVision. We also got a short tease of him in space in the end-credit sequence of Spider-Man: Far From Home. The set-up would point more closer to a space-focused adventure but Fury isn’t shy of preparing a team to watch out for earth while he is gone. We could see the return of Talos impersonating Nick, as he did in Far From Home. So, Secret Warriors seems like a likely set-up especially if you consider the Inhumans making their Disney+ debut in Ms. Marvel. So the set-up would be here for the introduction of Quake. Whatever it might be, it looks like we might get some news on what to expect beyond 2022 sooner rather than later.
