Mysterious Marvel Set Pics Tease Nick Fury’s Return
It’s been a long while since we’ve seen our old S.H.I.E.L.D. pals Nick Fury and Maria Hill. The characters, played by Samuel L. Jackson and Cobie Smulders (respectively, of course), haven’t appeared in the MCU since 2015’s Avengers: Age of Ultron. That’s not too far back in mere mortal years, but Marvel has released six movies since then, so it feels a lot longer. Thankfully, they’ll both be back in action shortly, as evidenced by some interesting new set photos.
