Actor Samuel L Jackson is one of Marvel’s most veterans and reveals why he still loves playing Nick Fury.
In 2008, the Marvel Studios Cinematic Universe with the movie Hombre de Hierroin the plot they mention S.H.I.E.L.D. and the Agent Coulson (Clark Gregg) is quite important, but it also appears Nick Fury (Samuel L Jackson) in the post-credits scene talking to Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.) about the Avengers initiative.
Since then, we have seen Nick Fury (Samuel L Jackson) in many other Marvel movies like Iron Man 2 (2010), Captain America the First Avenger (2011), The Avengers (2012), Captain America: The Winter Soldier (2014), Avengers: Age of Ultron (2015), Captain Marvel (2019), Avengers: Endgame (2019) and Spider-Man: Far From Home (2019). In addition, she lends her voice to the character in the animated series What if…? which can be seen in Disney Plus. Without forgetting that we can see it in the movie The Marvels (Captain Marvel 2) in 2023 and in the series Secret Invasion.
So… how do you stay motivated with the character after so long?
This is how he answers Samuel L Jackson to that question:
“Yes. I love Nick Fury. Of course. Go. He is a guy who doesn’t have superpowers, who is in charge of people who have superpowers and they leave him alone. That’s something special about him. He is a leader of men who are very different, in another way. It is very satisfying to be part of a world that I admired for so long when he was a child. I still buy comics. I still go to comic shops. I still read them. But to be able to be that character in that, it’s the same as when he was doing Afro Samurai, or any of those comic book characters. It means something to be part of a cultural canon that people revere and respect, in another way.
