Nick Fury is one of the characters in the Marvel Cinematic Universe who is told as the leader of the members of SHIELD (Strategic Homeland Intervention, Enforcement, and Logictic Division). Members of this organization are filled by several superheroes whose job is to protect humanity from attacks that come from outer space.

“I love Nick Fury, of course! He’s a man who doesn’t have superpowers, who is in charge of people who have superpowers, and they let him. That’s something special about him,” Jackson said.

Furthermore, Jackson assesses that Nick Fury has a strong character and is different from other leaders. He has admired the character since he was a child and is still buying the comics to this day.

“He is a very different leader, in his own way. It’s so satisfying to be part of a world I’ve admired for so long when I was a kid.”

“I still buy the comics. I still go to comic shops and still read them. But to become that character, just like when I did Afro Samurai, or any other comic character. Which is to be part of a cultural canon that people revere and respect in a different way,” Jackson concluded.
