Samuel L. Jackson is finally set to get his own Disney+ series as Marvel’s Nick Fury . The Agent of SHIELD will headline his own show almost ten years after the first rumors started to circulate that Jackson could get either a movie or a TV show based on the character, who first appeared in Iron Man and was the glue that held the disparate Marvel movies together before the characters united in Marvel’s The Avengers in 2012.
More recently he and Maria Hill (Cobie Smulders) have served as the bridge between the main Marvel Cinematic Universe and Sony’s Spider-Man movies.
Variety reports that Kyle Bradstreet attached to write and executive produce the Marvel Studios-financed series. This won’t, however, be the first time Nick Fury has made his way to TV.
