Samuel L. Jackson's Nick Fury has been a staple of the MCU since he first introduced himself to Tony Stark in 2008's Iron Man. In the years since he has formed the Avengers, witnessed the fall of SHIELD, and jetted off into space with SWORD, setting the stage for his cosmic role in Secret Invasion and The Marvels​​​​​​.

The Hollywood legend joined Brie Larson for 2019's Captain Marvel in a '90s prequel that explored the early days of his career and even revealed how he lost an eye to a cat-like Flerken. Projects such as Spider-Man: Far From HomeWandaVision and Ms. Marvel have since hinted at the troubled relationship between Carol Danvers and other characters

Now, Jackson is set to reprise his role in The Marvels after his Secret Invasion. Just recently, fans were shocked to discover the Disney+ series has set course for an unprecedented four months of reshoots, but that isn't the only production Jackson will soon return to.

Do Reshoots Spell Trouble for The Marvels?

Many MCU enthusiasts have become increasingly concerned when they hear the word "reshoots," often taking this as a sign of a troubled production. However, reshoots are commonplace in the production process and used to capture alternate camera angles, alter an actor's delivery, and occasionally change dialogue or story details.

Samuel L. Jackson's Secret Invasion Disney+ series was recently reported to have four months of reshoots scheduled to begin in mid-July. People were initially concerned by this news as MCU series usually take under six months to film from scratch, indicating major changes were planned for the reshoots.

Perhaps Jackson's involvement in The Marvels reshoots stems from whatever changes will be made to Secret Invasion. After all, the two projects will reportedly be closely connected, with many speculating the Disney+ series will lead directly into the Captain Marvel sequel. 

There's no telling who else will be involved with The Marvels' reshoots, but perhaps Iman Vellani's Ms. Marvel will see an increased role after the success of her Disney+ series. The actress behind the main villain, Zawe Ashton, just recently announced her pregnancy with Tom Hiddleston, which may lessen the chances of her returning to the set.

This update also ought to reduce concerns with regard to the Secret Invasion reshoots, as there's a heavy chance the reported four-month time span includes the added work needed for both projects involving Jackson.

The Marvels hits theaters on July 28, 2023.
