Despite having a jam-packed career filled with dozens of iconic roles, Samuel L. Jackson is only just now gearing up for his first-ever regular television role. According to Variety, the legendary actor will be reprising his role as Nick Fury for a new Marvel series on Disney+.
Kyle Bradstreet (Mr. Robot) is attached to write and executive produce the series for Marvel Studios.
Jackson first debuted his role as Fury in the Marvel Cinematic Universe back in 2008 during the post-credits scene in Iron Man. Since then, his character has grown increasingly more prominent, having appeared in 11 Marvel movies total.
The Nick Fury is just the latest in a string of Marvel-related series in the works at Disney+. WandaVision is set to hit the platform later this year, followed by Loki and The Falcon and Winter Soldier next year. Tatiana Maslany was recently tapped to star in a She-Hulk series, while Hawkeye, Moon Knight, Ms. Marvel, and the animated What If… are also on the docket.
