Nick Fury was one of the most crucial characters in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, with his role being the leader of S.H.I.E.L.D, the organization in which the Avengers eventually rally under. His first appearance was on the post-credit of the first Iron Man movie back in 2008 – and only after that did people realize an avenger movie could happen for real.

It is about time that Nick Fury step down and leave the spotlight for the next generation

Throughout phase 1 of the MCU, Nick Fury and S.H.I.E.L.D was the sole connector to link all the movies together into Avenger 2012. And because of that, Samuel L. Jackson was signed to an absurd nine-movies deal, in order to make sure everything is secured for the MCU to take off and become the biggest brand in the industry.

Since then, Jackson’s Nick Fury has appeared in 11 MCU movies, ranging from just a brief cameo in Thor and Endgame to full time supporting roles like in Captain Marvel and Spider-Man. Fury’s journey almost came to an end in Winter Soldier – and with the third phase of the MCU concluded in Endgame, the guy might not be around for much longer.

Marvel's post Endgame universe would be very different - you are going to be introduced to a lot of new characters that no one has ever heard about before.

According to various sources, Nick Fury is going to stick around for a few more movies until phase 4 end – afterward, the character would be retired and replaced with Abigail Brand, the leader of a new government organization called S.W.O.R.D. Both this character and the organization would be introduced in Wandavision, the upcoming Marvel TV show on Disney Plus. It is expected that Fury’s arc would end with the second Captain Marvel movie, as Brie Larson’s character is the one who has the most history with the director of S.H.I.E.L.D.
