What you need to know about Samuel L. Jackson’s Nick Fury before the secret invasion

The character at the center of Marvel’s Secret Invasion is none other than Nick Fury by Samuel L Jackson. After appearing as a supporting character in numerous films and series, the Disney+ series focuses on Nick Fury. Here is Fury’s story in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Who is Nick Fury?

Nick Fury first appeared in the post-credits scene of 2008’s Iron Man. Many of his early appearances served to establish the idea of ​​the Avengers, with Fury acting covertly as head of SHIELD – the Strategic Intervention, Enforcement Division and logistics in the home country. In 2012’s The Avengers, Fury was able to shine a little by keeping the team of superheroes together while also dealing with the higher powers of government.

In Captain America: The Winter Soldier, it is revealed that SHIELD is full of HYDRA characters who have corrupted the organization from within over the years. Fury battles a series of enemy agents while working with Captain America, Black Widow and Maria Hill, eventually faking his own death at the end of the film. From there, Fury appears sporadically in later Avengers films, motivates the team in Avengers: Age of Ultron, and is kidnapped by Thanos in Avengers: Infinity War.

Set in 1995, Captain Marvel features a younger Nick Fury meeting the titular hero and the Skrulls for the first time. There he meets Talos, who also plays an important role in Secret Invasion. At the time of Spider-Man: Far From Home, Fury was brought back to life by the Avengers and flew into space for some reason as Talos played the role of Fury by his own volition. It’s likely that Secret Invasion and The Marvels will declare this intergalactic sabbatical while continuing Fury’s story.
