Samuel L. Jackson to Return as Nick Fury in ‘CAPTAIN MARVEL’

July 6, 2017


Samuel L. Jackson is set to return as Nick Fury for the upcoming Marvel Studios film, CAPTAIN MARVEL. He will reunite with his Kong: Skull Island costar Brie Larson.

Fury was last seen in 2015’s Avengers: Age of Ultron, but it’s expected that he’ll appear in Avengers: Infinity War ahead of Captain Marvel.

Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck will direct from a script by Meg LeFauve and Nicole Perlman. Kevin Feige produces. Marvel Studios’ Louis D’Esposito, Victoria Alonso, and Jonathan Schwartz and Stan Lee executive produce.

Carol Danvers has a very nuanced, powerful story, so Marvel took their time selecting their directing duo. Ultimately Boden and Fleck’s diverse body of work and ability and focus on character made them the winning one. Each of their films exhibit nuanced, fascinating performances and a deeply-felt sense of character, all which will fuel the pair’s passion around telling Carol Danvers’ story.

In the comics, Carol Danvers made her first appearance in 1968’s Marvel Super-Heroes #13. A Security Chief in the US air force, Danvers would later be transformed into the superhero Ms. Marvel following an explosion involving Kree technology. More recently, Danvers took on the identity of Captain Marvel after being “promoted” to the moniker of the former Kree superhero.

Captain Marvel is set to hit theaters on March 8, 2019.
