Spider-Man: Far From Home Adds Samuel L. Jackson And Cobie Smulders

Smoove will also be joining the film in a still-unnamed role. This held true for Cobie Smulders' S.H.I.E.L.D. agent Maria Hill and Samuel L. Jackson's eye-patch wearing Avengers creator Nick Fury, who were both dusted from existence in the film's after-credit scene.

After briefly appearing in the post-credits scene of Avengers: Infinity War, former SHIELD agents Nick Fury and Maria Hill will be getting involved in Spider-Man's upcoming adventure overseas. How Hill and Fury factor into Far From Home's plot is anyone's guess, but we assume we'll be seeing them in a fully restored state (a narrative wrinkle likely to be ironed out by the Avengers: Infinity War sequel, which arrives two months before the Spider-Man: Homecoming sequel). Because of this, Sony - which co-produces the Spider-Man films with Marvel Studios - did not comment on this casting.

The last time we saw Nick Fury and Maria Hill, they were blowing around NY in a pile of dust at the end of Infinity War, the final victims of Thanos' deadly finger snap. Fans need something to keep them busy as they impatiently wait for Captain Marvel and Avengers 4, so going through Infinity War with a fine-toothed comb looking for clues is a way to cope.

Last partial solar eclipse of the year on August 11
Coming up on January 21, 2019, a third consecutive total lunar eclipse will also be off center and find the Moon near perigee. While this period is for the total 2018, the duration of the eclipse - including the partial phases - will be over 6 hours.

This news also means that 2019 will be an even bigger year than we thought for Jackson as Fury.

We already know that the movie will see Peter Parker (also back from the dead) dealing with the aftermath of Infinity War, but we don't know anything about the time frame in play yet. Their involvement in the Spidey sequel has been rumored for the past few weeks with Jackson posting to Instagram from both London, England and Capri, Italy, both locations being used for the sequel.
