The story of Samuel L. Jackson becoming Nick Fury is one of those caught-red-handed moments that turned into a decade-long working relationship. However, that may soon change in a big way.

Variety is reporting that Academy Award-nominee Samuel L. Jackson (Avengers: Endgame; Spider-Man: Far From Home) has closed a deal to return as Nick Fury in an upcoming Marvel Studios-produced Disney+ series that is now in the earliest stages of development.

Samuel L. Jackson first appeared as Nick Fury in Iron Man, which kickstarted the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

He is next expected to lend his voice to Marvel Studios' What If.?

The untitled series remains without a release date but has garnered swift attention with sources claiming Jackson has agreed to star and writer Kyle Bradstreet has agreed to both write and executive produce. Prior to that, Marvel infamously used Jackson's likeness for Fury in The Ultimates, a modern reboot of the Avengers comic book series.

Nick Fury is coming to Disney+. "The exact plot details of the show are being kept under wraps", the outlet reports, but this will mark Jackson's first regular television role. He was last seen in Spider-Man: Far From Home, in which he was revealed that he was upon a Skrull spaceship. That agency is rumored to be introduced in the upcoming WandaVision series, and considering where we last left Fury, I wouldn't be surprised to see this new show involve him cruising around on some space adventures, potentially even leading S.W.O.R.D.

Are you looking forward to seeing the Nick Fury series? While Jackson previously appeared on two episodes of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.
