When Samuel L. Jackson’s Nick Fury meets up with Peter Parker in ‘Spider-Man: Far From Home,’ it is quickly evident that the super spy is annoyed with our young hero. As we’ve seen in the previews, Fury wants Spidey to help deal with some villains while The Wallcrawler doesn’t jump into action like The Avengers do and wants to take a vacation. As Fury so eloquently puts it when Peter says the monsters Fury wants to stop are out of his league, “Bitch, please, you’ve been to space.”
Fury is not even a fan of Spidey when he contacts him in the film as Jackson explains:
“Really, you think I like him? We’re getting there. He’s a little frustrating for me right now. I want him to grow up quicker than he’s willing to grow up. And I’m doing that parental pressure thing. Like, ‘Come on! Either get a job or get out of the house!'”
While Parker might have great power and with it comes great responsibility, he wants a break after losing Tony Stark in ‘Avengers: Endgame.’ As a hero, you don’t tend actually to get to take a vacation when you want to, and that is the mindset Fury is in.
The idea for Fury’s inclusion in the movie was something Jon Watts really wanted:
“I always wanted to put our idealistic teenage hero Peter Parker against a jaded, world-weary super spy like Nick Fury. I always thought that would be such a great combination of conflict and relationship to explore. That was something that was in my very, very, very first pitch and my very first meeting at Marvel — I was like, ‘I want to see this kid go up against this bad motherf—ker,’ you know? Tony Stark is like the cool, supportive rich uncle. Nick Fury is more like the mean, new stepdad. And I just thought it would be really fun to see those two worlds collide.”
I feel this was an excellent decision as this isn’t just going to evolve into a motivating factor for Parker, but the interaction between these two will be priceless!
