Samuel L. Jackson Returns for Spider-Man: Far From Home Reshoots

Nick Fury actor Samuel L. Jackson revealed that he’s returning to don the eyepatch and do reshoots for Spider-Man: Far From Home. Following up on the success of 2017’s Spider-Man: Homecoming, which grossed a solid $880 million at the worldwide box office, Tom Holland will return to once again play the MCU’s version of Peter Parker in Far From Home.

When fans last saw Holland’s Parker, he was in fact turning to dust in the arms of Tony Stark during the devastating climax of Avengers: Infinity War. Whether Far From Home is set before Infinity War, or in fact takes place after the events of that movie and therefore by existing spoils the fact that Peter Parker will somehow be resurrected in Avengers: Endgame, is something that won’t be revealed until the newest Spider-Man adventure is actually released. What has been revealed is that Jackson’s Nick Fury will appear in Far From Home, which sees Spider-Man taking a trip to Europe and battling Jake Gyllenhaal’s villainous Mysterio.

Indeed, Jackson’s work on Far From Home does not appear to be quite finished yet. As the actor revealed on his Instagram, he is getting ready to put back on the iconic Nick Fury eyepatch and participate in reshoots for the latest Spider-Man adventure. In the post, Jackson also gets in a hashtag plug for another of his upcoming films, The Hitman’s Wife’s Bodyguard, the sequel to his surprise hit action-comedy The Hitman’s Bodyguard. See Jackson’s post below:

It’s not yet known how big a role Jackson will actually have in Far From Home, but the fact that he’s showing up for reshoots could be an indication his part is being beefed up. As Jackson jokes in his hashtag, such reshoots can also be referred to as “enhancement shots,” depending on how you want to spin the matter. Indeed, the idea that a film is being enhanced by doing more work is a much more pleasant notion than that anything is being “reshot,” as the very term “reshoot” is still taken as an indication that something has gone amiss on a production and the scramble is on to fix the problems.

Given how efficient the Marvel Studios/Disney machine has become in churning out blockbuster after blockbuster, it would indeed be a major shock if there were something wrong with Spider-Man: Far From Home. Already this year, the MCU has seen a $1 billion-plus blockbuster in Captain Marvel, and Avengers: Endgame is predicted to destroy box office records when it arrives next week. It seems almost a foregone conclusion that Far From Home will simply take its place as the next successful MCU movie when it arrives.

Then again, not every Marvel movie is considered a masterpiece either by critics or fans, so the Marvel Studios machine is not in fact infallible even if it seems that way. Eventually Marvel will create a dud, and it’s entirely possible that Spider-Man: Far From Home will be that dud. However, if the movie is able to capture the same fun spirit as Spider-Man: Homecoming, it’s almost certain that it will be a success with audiences.

Samuel L. Jackson Wants To Explore More of Nick Fury’s MCU Past

After going back to the ’90s in Captain Marvel, Samuel L. Jackson wants to see more of Nick Fury’s past explored. Ever since making his Marvel Cinematic Universe debut in Iron Man’s stinger, the now former director of S.H.I.E.L.D. has been one of the most frequently used characters, making appearances in some of the MCU’s biggest films. He also had a few guest spots on Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. in some of the show’s earlier seasons, making him one of a few characters to transition between films and TV.

Throughout all of the appearances, he has yet to have a starring role. His biggest roles so far have been Captain America: The Winter Soldier, which explained a bit of his rise through S.H.I.E.L.D., and The Avengers, which showed why he put all of his belief in the Avengers Initiative. However, it may be Captain Marvel that gives him his most revealing role to date, as fans will get to see a young, desk jockey version of Fury (who still has both eyes). Now that de-aging technology has opened up the door to tell more stories, Jackson wants to keep bringing Fury back in other time periods.

Jackson spoke to CinemaBlend recently to promote Captain Marvel and they asked him what ideas he had for additional Nick Fury adventures set in the past. Whether it would be his pre-S.H.I.E.L.D. days or when he went undercover after the fall, here are Jackson’s ideas for fleshing out his MCU character:

“Part of his service record and also the fact that he was a spy for a while. Where was he, what was he doing, how did he meet this particular person?… He met Natasha through the whole spy thing, I’d like to explore that a bit. I’d also like to know what he was doing after Winter Soldier when they said go to Europe and find out what’s going on.”

If Jackson is truly interested in exploring more of Nick Fury’s backstory, he may just be in luck. How he met Natasha Romanoff (aka Black Widow) specifically could very well happen soon. Black Widow is reportedly going to be a prequel/origin solo film for Scarlett Johansson that would take place prior to her joining S.H.I.E.L.D. If this is the case, it would be the perfect opportunity for Marvel to show Jeremy Renner’s Hawkeye being sent to kill her, deciding not to, and then how Fury meets her and welcomes her into S.H.I.E.L.D.

Even though Jackson may be looking to the past to continue playing Fury, his immediate future is still in the present day. He may or may not actually be in Avengers: Endgame, but Fury will return in Spider-Man: Far From Home later this summer, which picks up after the events of the Phase 3 capper. After that, we don’t know what exactly his future holds, but Disney Plus could be the answer to Jackson’s other interests. Since Marvel’s already mastered the de-aging tech on Fury, they could tell a decade-spanning story of Fury through his own live-action series. It would be able to cover Fury’s days as a soldier and a spy that otherwise may not fit into any planned films. After a decade of being a supporting character, it would be great to finally see Fury be the focus of his own story, and Jackson clearly has ideas, so hopefully Marvel is interested.

Spider-Man: Far From Home First Teaser Poster Spotted At Licensing Expo

Sony’s Spider-Man: Far From Home gets a teaser poster as the promotional image is spotted at the Brand Licensing Europe 2018 event in London. Thanks to a deal between Sony Pictures and Marvel Studios, Peter Parker (Tom Holland) joined the Marvel Cinematic Universe in Captain America: Civil War. Since then, Holland’s wall-crawling superhero has headlined his own movie in Spider-Man: Homecoming and teamed up with Earth’s Mightiest Heroes in Avengers: Infinity War. Next, Spidey will return for Avengers 4, then the beloved Marvel hero will kick off Phase 4 of the MCU with Spider-Man: Far From Home.

Despite Peter Parker becoming the victim of Thanos’ snap as part of Infinity War’s cliffhanger ending, we know the web-head will return somehow – whether that means Avengers 4 will use time travel, though, remains to be seen. Holland and stars of Homecoming returned to work this summer as Spider-Man: Far From Home has been filming across Europe. Set photos from the Spider-Man sequel have offered looks at MCU characters joining the Sony movie, including Samuel L. Jackson’s Nick Fury and Cobie Smulders’ Maria Hill. Now, a promo poster for Spider-Man: Far From Home has also surfaced.

Instagram user Dirtees posted a group of photos from the floor of the Brand Licensing Europe 2018 expo in London, United Kingdom this week. The fourth photo in the post (which can be located by clicking through the series of photos below) features a hanging promotion image for Spider-Man: Far From Home. It appears to be an image of Spider-Man from Homecoming that was repurposed with the Spider-Man: Far From Home movie logo. Take a look at the image below.

Of course, Sony can use images of Spider-Man from Homecoming for the Far From Home posters because Peter Parker is expected to be wearing the same superhero suit. Previously, Holland confirmed Spider-Man will wear the Homecoming suit in the sequel, despite upgrading to the Iron-Spider suit for Infinity War. However, based on Far From Home set photos, Spider-Man will also don a stealth suit that’s all black. Fans have theorized this suit is inspired by Spider-Man Noir, but how exactly Spidey gets the black suit for Far From Home remains to be seen. All we know for now is that Peter Parker will trade in his red and blue costume for something more covert (or, perhaps it’s a separate mode built into the old suit by Tony Stark).

Unfortunately, this Spider-Man: Far From Home promotional poster doesn’t reveal anything new from the movie – neither in terms of the web-head’s suit nor otherwise. That said, with Far From Home set to hit theaters in July 2019, we aren’t too far off from Sony kicking off marketing for the Spider-Man sequel. While there are two MCU movies due in theaters before Far From HomeCaptain Marvel and Avengers 4 – their close release dates mean the marketing pushes for each film will inevitably overlap. Plus, given how secretive Marvel Studios has been with Avengers 4, it’s entirely possible we’ll see some official artwork for Spider-Man: Far From Home even before the Phase 3 capper releases a trailer. For now, fans will have to wait and see – and make due with Holland’s occasional social media reveals and the Spider-Man: Far From Home set photos.

Spider-Man & Nick Fury Go Boating in New Far From Home Set Photo

A brand new Spider-Man: Far From Home set photo features Tom Holland’s headlining hero and Samuel L. Jackson’s Nick Fury cruising on a speedboat. Directed by Spider-Man: Homecoming helmsman Jon Watts, the upcoming sequel will be the MCU’s first entry in its still-mysterious Phase 4. Set after the events of Avengers 4, plot details regarding the movie are still being tightly kept under wraps, considering that next year’s Phase 3 culmination will serve as its narrative launching pad. That said, the follow-up will be bigger in scale, with the young hero traveling around Europe with his high school friends for a vacation. But with several bad guys lurking around – like the returning Vulture, Hydro-Man, Chameleon, Molten Man, and the movie’s apparent primary antagonist, Mysterio – it doesn’t seem like he’ll have much downtime.

Both Peter and Fury suffered the same fate in Avengers: Infinity War – snuffed out from existence following Thanos’ deadly snap. But with Avengers 4 expected to bring back most, if not all the heroes who were affected by the galactic genocide, the two will be resurrected one way or another,  thanks to the upcoming efforts of the core Avengers and the help of Ant-Man and Captain Marvel. After the MCU’s crisis at hand is finally resolved, the two (alongside Cobie Smulder’s Maria Hill) will work together to contain a brand new threat in Far From Home.

This latest set photo featuring Spidey and Fury comes courtesy of Twitter user fangirlonloose_. Taken during one of the filming days in Venice, the image features Peter Parker (sporting his arachnid alter-ego’s suit) and the former head of S.H.I.E.LD. cruising on a river aboard a speedboat. Check out the image below:

Far From Home began production in the U.K. back in July, and Venice was the last stop on its European filming leg before returning back to the U.S. to shoot more in New York and Los Angeles. So far, most filming has been done on location, resulting in a slew of set photos that give fans a peek at what the sequel might look like, including a look at Mysterio – supposedly played by Jake Gyllenhaal. A previously leaked video revealed Fury with Maria Hill, but this is the first time that he’s been spotted on the set sharing a scene with Spider-Man.

Not much can be deciphered from the photo, but it appears like Fury came to Spider-Man’s rescue, with the boat functioning as a getaway vessel. It also backs up theories that Fury and S.H.I.E.L.D. (or the mysterious organization he’s currently working with) have taken in the young hero, with a separate set image revealing that Peter’s brand new stealth suit could be from the agency. Considering Fury’s now watching out for Peter’s well-being, many are speculating that Tony Stark/Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.) may bite the bullet in Avengers 4, since he seems to no longer be involved in Peter’s solo missions.  Otherwise, if he’s still alive, it’s odd that Stark wouldn’t have anything to do with his mentee, especially since both Pepper Potts (Gwyneth Paltrow) and Happy Hogan (Jon Favreau) are believed to appear in Spider-Man: Far From Home.

Samuel L. Jackson Resumes Filming Spider-Man: Far from Home, Shares Photo

Samuel L. Jackson has been having a grand time vacationing in France – documenting his escapades by regularly posting on social media – but duty calls, as he’s back on the set of Spider-Man: Far From Home to reprise his role as Nick Fury. The actor first shared an image hinting at his return as the MCU character back in July. For a time, many believed that his tease was related to Avengers 4, which has been undergoing reshoots since the same time Far From Home started principal photography. But it was eventually confirmed that he’ll be part of the forthcoming Jon Watts-directed sequel, following in the footsteps of Tony Stark, who appeared in Spider-Man: Homecoming.

Plot details for Far From Home are being kept tightly under wraps, considering that its narrative will hinge on what goes down in Avengers 4. But the film will bring the young New Yorker across the pond, as he embarks on a summer vacation around Europe. Unfortunately, it looks like Peter won’t really be able to catch a break, with the sequel tipped to feature a slew of bad guys, including Mysterio, Vulture, Hydro-Man, Chameleon, and Molten Man. Good thing he’ll get a set of helping hands via Fury getting involved.

Jackson announced that he’s back on the set of Far From Home to reprise his role as Nick Fury by way of an Instagram post. Sadly, there’s no image of the actor in his full character attire, although he shared his view from the make-up chair, revealing the fake facial hair he’s about to put on. Based on the upload’s geo-tag, filming is around North Woolwich, Newham, United Kingdom, which is less than an hour drive from where Tom Holland was spotted shooting for the sequel a couple of months ago. Check out the image below:

It’s currently unclear what Fury has to do with Peter’s future, considering that they haven’t even met each other yet. However, considering that Fury remains committed to monitoring any threat to Earth – as well as the heroes that have the responsibility to protect the planet – even after S.H.I.E.L.D.’s fall, it’s not outside the realm of possibility that he already has an idea who Spider-Man is. After all, Peter wasn’t exactly discreet with his heroic adventures, as proven by Tony Stark during the Queens native’s recruitment in Captain America: Civil War.

If that’s not the case, the two may still cross paths in next year’s Avengers 4. Both characters were part of the unfortunate half of the universe who were snuffed out of existence by the end of Infinity War, but given that fans already know what’s next for them, they’re expected to be brought back to life one way or another. Fans will get a better picture of the planet’s state once it’s revealed how Earth’s Mightiest Heroes resolve the current Thanos debacle, but for now, they’ll have to settle for knowing that both Peter and Fury will still be a part of MCU’s Phase 4 in Spider-Man: Far From Home.
