Nick Fury appears in several Marvel series set in alternate universes, as well as multiple animated films, television shows, and video games based on the comics. The character was first portrayed in live action by David Hasselhoff in the 1998 television movie Nick Fury: Agent of S. H. I. E. L. D. Samuel L. Jackson portrays the character in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, first appearing in Iron Man (2008). He also appears in Iron Man 2 (2010), Thor (2011) Captain America: The First Avenger (2011), The Avengers (2012), Captain America: The Winter Soldier (2014), Avengers: Age of Ultron (2015), Avengers: Infinity War (2018), Captain Marvel (2019), Avengers: Endgame (2019), and Spider-Man: Far from Home (2019). He also appeared in two episodes of the first season of the television series Agents of S. H. I. E. L. D. A version of the character appearing in Marvel’s Ultimate Marvel imprint was based on Jackson’s appearance and screen persona, well before he was cast in the role. The recognizability of the character portrayed by Jackson in the films later led Marvel to retire the original character, replacing him with his African American son, who, like the Ultimate Marvel version, is patterned on Jackson.
