Samuel L Jackson has had a career that many Hollywood actors could only dream of, portraying the role of Nick Fury in the Marvel Cinematic Universe and countless other big-time roles throughout his many years of acting, and now, he has taken a role that has thrown many for a loop as he plays himself rallying gamers in a Verizon Ad aired during the Super Bowl! With Verizon creating an advertisement meant specifically for gamers, Jackson is portrayed completely in CG, with the voice of the actor ringing throughout to rally gamers for a big challenge!
When last we saw Samuel L Jackson in the MCU, he was aboard a spaceship during the post-credits scene of Spider-Man: Far From Home, apparently taking care of business far away from the Earth. With a Disney+ series already previewed in Secret Invasion that will star both Samuel L Jackson and the Skrulls that were first introduced in the film, Captain Marvel, it's clear that Nick Fury still has a lot of adventures that are coming his way as a part of the world that brought the Avengers into superstardom. Needless to say, Jackson makes for a good personality to deliver a rallying cry to gamers.

The advertisement even ends with a reference to the movie, Deep Blue Sea, which saw Jackson's character unexpectedly eaten by a shark!
