Samuel L. Jackson Set To Star In Disney+ Nick Fury Series

Samuel L. Jackson is set to star as Nick Fury in a new Marvel series coming to Disney+, according to Variety.

The publication doesn't know a right lot more about the show at this point, other than that it is being written and executive produced by Kyle Bradstreet, who executive produced Rami Malek series Mr. Robot.

Jackson first portrayed the eye-patch wearing general of government agency S.H.I.E.L.D. in the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) in the post-credits scene of Iron Man in 2008.

Since then, he has played Fury in a number of films, including Avengers: Endgame, Captain Marvel and Spider-Man: Far From Home.

LADbible has contacted Disney for comment regarding the reports of a new Nick Fury series.

In July, Variety reported that Jackson and Ryan Reynolds have signed up for a new animated series called Futha Mucka. The series will launch on mobile video streaming service Quibi, though it's not clear when exactly.

A leaked synopsis reads: "Samuel L. Jackson and Ryan Reynolds love each other. More accurately, Ryan loves Sam.


"When a minor mishap causes Sam to become Ryan's primary caregiver, things get weird. Ryan is delighted to spend all of his time with Sam. Sam couldn't be reached for comment."

How intriguing.

Jim and Brian Kehoe are both executive producers on the series and were the brains behind the 2018 movie Blockers.

Jackson and Reynolds are also due to join forces again in a sequel to 2017 action-comedy The Hitman's Bodyguard.


The Hitman's Wife's Bodyguard
was initially set for release on 28 August 2020, however, like everything else, it has been pushed back - to 20 August 2021, for now anyway.

The synopsis of the follow-up reads: "Four years after the events of the original film, bodyguard Michael Bryce continues his friendship with assassin Darius Kincaid as they embark on a new adventure to save Sonia, Darius's wife, from new threats."

Morgan Freeman is also joining the cast, so hopefully it will be worth the wait.
