There are a few things that Marvel Cinematic Universe fans adore as connecting factors. Samuel L. Jackson, who plays Nick Fury, is one of them. He debuted in Iron Man and has remained a vital element of the Marvel Universe ever since. Another example is the post-credits sequences, which have become a staple of every Marvel film.
Neither picture was meant to become a classic. The Story of Marvel Studios: The Making of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, a newly released book, reveals a slew of behind-the-scenes details about the franchise, including the fact that Samuel L. Jackson never intended to play a major role.
The story of Samuel L. Jackson joining the Marvel Cinematic Universe for a post-credits scene on Iron Man was disclosed in an excerpt from the book.
After its debut in 2008, Iron Man launched the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Samuel L. Jackson played a little but notable cameo in the post-credits scene. Nobody could have foreseen what Marvel movies would become over the next decade at the time.
Every time a narrative about the making of Iron Man comes out, it makes it sound like they had no idea they were creating the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
They didn’t want to cast Robert Downey Jr. as Iron Man at first because he was considered a danger. Many of the features that would become so crucial to fans, such as Samuel L. Jackson’s Nick Fury, were just “strange thoughts” that they had before starting the film. All of these components have now come together to create a cinematic universe that is frequently commended for its sense of cohesion and coherence.
When it comes to science fiction and fantasy stories, perhaps experimenting with “strange ideas” is the greatest way to create something that readers would enjoy. Especially when the actor in question is Samuel L. Jackson.
The actor is now filming Secret Invasion, a new Disney+ series. His social media postings demonstrate that he is entirely committed to his role as Nick Fury on the show and appears to be enjoying himself. You can see him sporting a hilarious Nick Fury t-shirt in a recent Instagram image he uploaded from the set.
Samuel L. Jackson was already a famous face for major films before joining Iron Man for what he thought would be a brief cameo. In the Star Wars universe, he played Mace Windu. While that character may be dead, the performer frequently denies it.
He’d be thrilled if his character appeared in another Star Wars film. On Star Wars Day, he frequently pays tribute to the franchise. He did it in 2021 with a t-shirt that blended his Star Wars work with one of his most renowned Quentin Tarantino films. The Star Wars and Pulp Fiction mashup tee is shown below:
With how wonderfully the Marvel Cinematic Universe has come together, it’s difficult to believe that Samuel L. Jackson’s Nick Fury wasn’t a prominent part from the start. It’s a good thing they recognized what they had once Iron Man was published and signed him to become the indispensable character he is today.
The unnamed Jackson Disney+ series is one of several new Marvel Cinematic Universe television shows set to debut on the streaming service. Earlier this month, Marvel released the trailer for “WandaVision,” the franchise’s superhero series set to debut on Disney+, while “The Falcon and the Winter Soldier,” “Loki,” Hawkeye,” “She-Hulk,” “Ms. Marvel,” “Moon Knight,” and “What If…?” are set to debut on Disney+ as part of the franchise’s Phase 4 release.
