Samuel L. Jackson: Secret Invasion Explores ‘The Shadow World’ Nick Fury Lived In

Secret Invasion star Samuel L. Jackson has spoken a bit about what viewers can expect from Nick Fury in the series.

While at the premiere for Marvel Studios‘ Secret Invasion, Jackson revealed that the series reveals things fans didn’t know about Fury and “the shadow world” that the character lived in.

“It’s great,” Jackson said. “We have an opportunity to find out who he is. Where does Nick Fury go when he actually leaves work? Who are the other people that he knows? Who are the other people that he knew in his past that he may need to call on to get some help. So we’re finding things out about Nick that we didn’t know [and] the shadow world that he lived in.”
