Vulture has confirmed that Samuel L. Jackson will star in Spider-Man: Far From Home, which means Fury will share scenes with Tom Holland’s web-slinger for the first time. The sequel to Spider-Man: Homecoming comes out July 5, 2019, roughly two months after the still-untitled fourth Avengers film will presumably de-dust both Nick Fury and Peter Parker.
What’s more, we can confirm that Cobie Smulders will be joining Jackson in Spider-Man: Far From Home, where she’ll reprise her character Maria Hill, Fury’s frequent comrade-in-arms. Since she, too, was last seen evaporating into the wind at the end of Infinity War, perhaps Thanos should start worrying. (Sony had no comment on either casting.)
The Spidey sequel, currently shooting in Europe, adds Jackson and Smulders to an ensemble that will feature Jake Gyllenhaal as the villain and brings back much of Spider-Man: Homecoming’s winning cast, including Zendaya, Jacob Batalon, and Tony Revolori. And fortunately for Jackson, it will keep him employed until at least September. Who knew that death could present so many career opportunities? (Source)
