The actor went on to become a franchise mainstay and was featured in a total of eleven films in addition to multiple television appearances.

Nick Fury was killed off in the 2018 blockbuster Avengers: Infinity War as part of the universe that disintegrated with Thanos’ snap, but he was later brought back to life in the film’s 2019 sequel. 

Jackson was notably de-aged for his role in Captain Marvel, which chronologically takes place in the 1990s.

His most recent appearance as Fury came in the 2019 film Spider-Man: Far From Home; he is slated to reprise his role for the upcoming Secret Invasion series, which will premiere on the Disney+ streaming service.

In an interview with , the actor spoke about what he has come to learn and like about his character over his years of portrayal and noted that part of the reason he likes playing Fury is the lack of pretense and seriousness that comes with the role. 

Jackson said: ‘He’s not burdened by the weight of the world the way he is and he hadn’t come to resent the powers that be in terms of how they view the world and how they view what he does, and the seriousness of the situation.’ 

The Jackie Brown actor also elaborated on why he chose to initially accept the role in the first place, noting that he probably would have liked to see himself in the role while he was growing up.

‘I do a lot of movies that are kind of gun movies or action movies because I loved them when I was growing up and to have an opportunity to do them now is like perfect for me. So I tend to sometimes just choose movies because they’re movies I would’ve gone to see when I was a kid or when I was young,’ the actor opined.
