What’s that? You need more Marvel content? We got you, and this one’s a biggy: Samuel L. Jackson is set to reprise his role as Nick Fury in his own series for Disney+.
There have been rumours for years that the Agent of S.H.I.E.L.D and all round bad-ass was getting his own TV series and/or film, but now it’s confirmed a show is happening.
Along with Jackson, it’s thought that Kyle Bradstreet will be writing and executive producing the upcoming series. Bradstreet is known for producing hit NBC show Mr Robot starring Rami Malek.
Jackson has long played the famous Nick Fury in the MCU, first appearing as the character in the end credits of 2008’s Iron Man.
He’s since appeared in a whole host of Marvel films, including Spider-Man: Far From Home, Captain America – The Winter Soldier and Captain Marvel. Though he mainly sticks to the big screen, Jackson has also played the character in two episodes of the ABC series Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.
Variety first reported the news of the new series, though Jackson, Bradstreet and Disney are yet to respond.
The Pulp Fiction actor recently paid tribute to fellow Marvel star Chadwick Boseman, who passed away last month after a secret battle with cancer. He wrote on Twitter: ‘THANK YOU @chadwickboseman for all you gave us. We needed it & will always cherish it! A talented & giving artist & brother who will be sorely missed… RIP.’
