According to Variety, Samuel L. Jackson will be reprising his role as Nick Fury in a new Marvel Disney+ series currently under development.
No plot details are known, but Kyle Bradstreet is reportedly attached to write and executive produce. Marvel Studios will produce. Representatives for Jackson, Bradstreet, and Disney did not immediately respond to Variety’s request for comments.
Samuel L. Jackson first appeared as Nick Fury in Iron Man, which kickstarted the Marvel Cinematic Universe. He has since appeared in ten Marvel films, made guest appearances in “Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD”, and voiced the character in multiple video games. His last appearance as Nick Fury was in Spider-Man: Far From Home.
Though Jackson has had a prolific film and television career outside of Marvel, a Nick Fury series would be his first regular television role.
Kyle Bradstreet is most known for his role as writer and executive producer on “Mr. Robot”.
Marvel Studios has several series in development for Disney+. Tatiana Maslany was recently cast as the lead character in “She-Hulk”. Though “The Falcon and The Winter Soldier” was originally planned to be the first Disney+ Marvel series, it has been delayed due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Instead, “WandaVision” will be the first to air later this year. No official release date has been announced, but a trailer proclaiming it was “coming soon” was recently released.
