Samuel L. Jackson has taken to social media to announce his return to the role of Nick Fury as he starts work on next year’s The Marvels.
The Marvels will serve as a sequel to Captain Marvel, WandaVision and the recent Ms. Marvel, picking up the stories of Carol Danvers (Brie Larson), Monica Rambeau (Teyonah Parris) and Kamala Khan (Iman Vellani).
Samuel L. Jackson previously appeared opposite Brie Larson’s Carol Danvers in Captain Marvel, which saw Nick Fury serve as a key ally to Danvers. Jackson was last seen as Nick Fury on a SWORD space station in the post-credits scene for Spider-Man: Far From Home.
Nick Fury Is Looking Marvellous
In a new post on his Instagram profile, Samuel L. Jackson can be seen sporting a vest that bears Nick Fury’s name, with the character’s signature eyepatch slung across the “R” in Fury.
Jackson captioned the photo “Rise & Grind, back in da box!!#themarvels” and received a warm response – in the form of a string of emojis – from co-star Brie Larson. It looks like Jackson is ready to get back to work as Marvel’s ultimate spy and former director of SHIELD.
While little is known of Samuel L. Jackson’s role in The Marvels, the fact he was last glimpsed working with Skrulls for SWORD, the same organization Teyonah Parris’ Monica Rambeau now works for, it can be assumed he will be working in connection with her character. Monica was contacted by Skrulls in a WandaVision post-credits scene.

Plot details for The Marvels are still being kept under wraps, but Ms. Marvel ended with a brief post-credits tease, which saw Iman Vellani’s Kamala Khan suddenly vanishing and being replaced by Brie Larson’s Carol Danvers. It looks like some external force is entangling at least two, if not all three, of the film’s titular Marvels.
Marvel Studios’ “Ms. Marvel” is a new, original series that introduces Kamala Khan, a Muslim American teenager growing up in Jersey City. An avid gamer and a voracious fan-fiction scribe, Kamala is a Super Hero mega fan with an oversized imagination—particularly when it comes to Captain Marvel. Yet Kamala feels like she doesn’t fit in at school and sometimes even at home—that is, until she gets super powers like the heroes she’s always looked up to. Life gets better with super powers, right?
The series stars Iman Vellani, Aramis Knight, Saagar Shaikh, Rish Shah, Matt Lintz, Zenobia Shroff, Mohan Kapur, Fawad Khan, Mehwish Hayat, and Farhan Akhtar. Episodes of the series were directed by Adil El Arbi & Bilall Fallah, Meera Menon, and Sharmeen Obaid-Chinoy, with Bisha K. Ali serving as the head writer. Marvel’s Kevin Feige is involved in the series as an executive producer.
Ms. Marvel is now streaming on Disney Plus. Stay tuned for all the latest news surrounding the Disney Plus series, and the future of Nia DaCosta’s The Marvels, and subscribe to our YouTube channel for more original video content.
