Time to back up the salt truck and take this with a massive grain. First off, let’s talk about how the media landscape is changing. Streaming is king, and many companies are looking to capitalize on the empire that Netflix has built. Nowhere is this more evident than the House of Mouse, as you know that Disney will soon be porting its content to its own streaming service, where original content will be produced, and this includes content under the Marvel Studios umbrella featuring MCU characters.
You also know by now that Tom Hiddleston and Elizabeth Olsen are set to reprise their roles as Loki and Scarlet Witch, respectively, in their own services on Disney’s streaming platform. Now this is where we enter rumor territory and treat this exactly what it is: a rumor. Enter MCU Cosmic, as Jeremy Conrad revealed on his most recent episode of the CosmicCast that there are two other MCU-based series in development for Disney’s streaming platform, and one of them will revolve around Nick Fury.
The idea of an ongoing series starring Samuel L. Jackson itself is enticing, but now one possibly surrounding Nick Fury? Well, how could you not like that possibility? After all, it’s not like Fury is going to be joining back up with the Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. anytime soon, at least not in the present. And while Fury did make an appearance early on in S.H.I.E.L.D.‘s lifespan, he has not since then. And no, we’re not going to get into where he got that extra Helicarrier towards the end of Avengers: Age of Ultron.
But while it seems both Fury and Maria Hill have their hands full with the friendly neighborhood Spider-Man in Far From Home, not to mention that they were both, you know, snapped out of existence in Avengers: Infinity War, perhaps an ongoing series focused on Fury would be a good way to continue with what’s happening in the Marvel Cinematic Universe from behind the scenes and in the shadows. Beyond how the Netflix shows do that already, anyway. But again, take this as a massive rumor. If it’s proven to be true, then great. If not, disregard.
However, what do you think of the idea of Nick Fury getting his own Marvel-based series on Disney’s streaming service? Do you think he should pay Coulson and the gang another visit on ABC? Let us know in the comments below.
Until then, you can catch Fury, Hill, and the rest of the gang in Avengers: Infinity War, which is available now on home release.
