Samuel L. Jackson is set to reprise the role of Nick Fury in a new Marvel series currently in development at Disney+.
The exact plot details of the show are being kept under wraps, but multiple sources say Jackson is attached to star with Kyle Bradstreet attached to write and executive produce. Like all the other Marvel shows at Disney+, Marvel Studios will produce.
Reps for Jackson, Bradstreet, and Disney did not immediately respond to requests for comment.
Jackson famously portrayed Fury, the monocular head of the clandestine government agency S.H.I.E.L.D, in the Marvel Cinematic Universe going back to the post-credits scene in the first Iron Man film in 2008. He has appeared in multiple films within the MCU since, most recently portraying Fury in Spider-Man: Far from Home, Avengers: Endgame, and Captain Marvel. He also played the character in two episodes of the ABC series Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.
The last time fans saw Fury was in the post-credits scene of Far From Home, where he was onboard a Skrull ship somewhere in deep space.
