While we got to see a younger (and somewhat softer) take on Nick Fury last month in Captain Marvel, the super spy will be back to his all business best this July as he teams up with Tom Holland’s web-slinger in the Sony and Marvel produced Spider-Man: Far From Home.
As you’d expect, the dynamic between the two will be very different to what we saw with Peter and Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.) in 2017’s Spider-Man: Homecoming, and director Jon Watts has been chatting to USA Today about the relationship that will develop between Fury and the friendly neighborhood Spider-Man.
“If Tony is like the supportive cool uncle, Fury’s more like the mean new stepdad,” states Watts. “Fury doesn’t see himself in Peter Parker. Fury sees Peter Parker as an asset that he needs who is too preoccupied with a bunch of high school problems.”
“Part of my pitch for the very first movie was bringing Nick Fury in and making him the mean substitute teacher,” he continued. “You get to have this teenage James Bond character. Total world-weary Nick Fury and enthusiastic New York teenager Peter Parker gallivanting across Europe – what’s more fun than that? You put them together and you have some good stuff.”
