Samuel L. Jackson is officially the Marvel star who has appeared in the most MCU movies so far. Of the 33 MCU movies, Jackson has appeared as Nick Fury in 12 of those movies. Obviously, most of those roles have been limited to cameos or short appearances, but Jackson plays a major role in the MCU and bringing these heroes and stories together.

Jackson is one of the scene stealers of the MCU. Every time Nick Fury pops up in a movie or show fans know it's about to get serious. Jackson's first appearance in the MCU was in the final scene of Iron Man. His last appearance was in the most recent MCU movie, The Marvels.

Fury is responsible for the formation of the Avengers, who began working together to stop Thor's brother, Loki (Tom Hiddleston), in his assault on New York using the Tesseract, which we later learn contained the Space Stone. His efforts as the Director of SHIELD and beyond shaped many of the relationships that led to the heroes saving the world time and time again.

This list doesn't even include Jackson's appearances in Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D, Secret Invasion, and Marvel's What If...? Throw in those titles, and there's no one even coming close to the total of Marvel projects that Jackson has been involved with. Only Kevin Feige has his hands on more MCU movies and shows.
