Spider-Man: Far From Home has been filming all over London over the past few weeks, with the cast and crew spotted at Stansted Airport, Bishops Stortford and now on the city streets shooting what appears to be a scene featuring Samuel L. Jackson’s Nick Fury and Cobie Smulders’ Agent Maria Hill.
From what we understand, the upcoming sequel will take Tom Holland’s Spider-Man on a tour of Europe, with scenes rumored to be shot in Venice, Prague, Paris and a major action set piece taking place in London (possibly in the Tower of London itself). For now, though, we’ve got our first look at Fury and Hill back in action, and you can check it out down below.

In Spider-Man: Homecoming, Spidey’s heroic activities were being monitored by Tony Stark, but now it looks as though he’s taken a step up the superhero food chain if a heavy MCU hitter like Nick Fury is taking an interest in his adventures. Judging from this footage, Agent Hill receives some sort of notification on her phone, to which Fury reacts with what seems to be frustration and annoyance. Presumably, they’re not entirely on board with Spider-Man taking his superheroism on the road, especially now that he’s a fully inaugurated Avenger.
In addition to that, given that the last time we saw Nick Fury and Maria Hill in Avengers: Infinity War‘s post-credits scene, they were crumbling into a small pile of ash, it’s perhaps safe to assume that post-Avengers 4, the MCU is pretty much going back to normal. Or at least, most of it will be.
Far From Home won’t be our next encounter with Nick Fury though, as he’s set to play a key role in the 1990s-set Captain Marvel (due out on March 8th), where he’ll be digitally de-aged by 25 years and may yet show up in a small role in the aforementioned Avengers 4, too. While his presence in the MCU might have been diminished after The Avengers, I’m still a sucker for seeing Jackson’s take on Fury and am definitely excited for him to show up in Spider-Man: Far From Home.
