Samuel L. Jackson is set to reprise the role of Nick Fury in a new Marvel series currently in development at Disney Plus, Variety has learned exclusively from sources.
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 Plus, Marvel Studios will produce.
Of all the characters from the cinematic Marvel Universe, Nick Fury makes the most sense to make a transition from the big screen to the smaller screen – minus those which have already started their transition in Wandavision and The Falcon & Winter Soldier.
I do wonder, however, with Samuel L. Jackson being 71 years young, if this will be a scenario where he films wraparounds for each episode, and a younger actor plays Fury in the bulk of the show, The Young Indiana Jones Chronicles-style.
Coincidentally, this now makes me wonder if the rumors about the Mace Windu / Star Wars series on Disney+ were a series of crossed wires.
