Samuel L. Jackson Shares Image From “Captain Marvel” Sequel
Nick Fury is back at work.
Samuel L. Jackson has shared an image from the set of The Marvels, the sequel to 2019’s Captain Marvel that’s being helmed by rising star Nia DaCosta. Jackson took to Instagram to share an image of his Marvel alter ego Nick Fury’s facial hair, going heavy on the puns in his caption. “Guess what time it is,” Jackson writes. “Back in the box, just in the Nick of time!” Bless him.
Jackson’s post confirms, for the first time, his involvement in the sequel. Not that it was seriously in doubt—Nick Fury was a major part of Captain Marvel, where he teamed up with Brie Larson’s Carol Danvers to uncover a sinister alien plot. We also learned how Nick Fury lost that eye and gained his iconic eyepatch (super belated spoiler alert—it was the cat’s fault), so it’s nice to know Fury’s back, one eye short but one step closer to becoming the all-knowing super S.H.I.E.L.D. agent.
Here’s Jackson’s post:

There’s a ton of excitement around The Marvels for a lot of reasons. One is Nia DaCosta, whose Candyman is hitting theaters in just a couple of weeks (August 27) and is one of the most exciting young directors out there. Another is the tremendous cast. The Marvels will be true to its title by teaming Larson’s titular superhero with some seriously strong women—Teyonnah Parris’s Monica Rambeau (last seen in Marvel’s Disney+ series WandaVision) and newcomer Iman Vellani as Kamala Khan, who has her own Disney+ series, Ms. Marvel, coming next year.
And of course, the team wouldn’t be complete without Nick Fury. It’s nice to know one of the MCU’s most clutch characters is back in the box.
The Marvels is slated for a November 11, 2022 release.
