  • Samuel L. Jackson made a guest appearance as Nick Fury in the Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. episode "0-8-4", reprising the role from the Marvel Cinematic Universe. He scolds S.H.I.E.L.D. agent Phil Coulson for the damage Coulson's plane sustained during a mission. In the aftermath of the events of Captain America: The Winter Soldier, Fury makes a return appearance in the first season finale "Beginning of the End", helping Coulson defeat Hydra sleeper agent John Garrett and his Deathlok program. Before leaving for Europe, Fury appoints Coulson as the new Director of S.H.I.E.L.D. and charges him with rebuilding the organization from scratch.[9][10] While not appearing in season 2, it is explained that Fury had Coulson create Theta Protocol, which was to secretly hide a helicarrier and recruit as many former S.H.I.E.L.D. operatives to man it, in case of ever assisting the Avengers in their time of need. This plan would come into effect during the events of Avengers: Age of Ultron.
