Making his last appearance as Nick Fury in Avengers: Age of Ultron, Samuel L. Jackson wants back in as the eyepatch-wearing superhero boss. A point he made while on the circuit promoting Kong: Skull Island. Making his debut in the post credits scene for 2008's blockbuster Iron Man, Fury has been the common thread linking the ensemble together.
But following from the 2015 installment, Jackson's absence has been felt for Captain America: Civil War and Doctor Strange. What we do know for sure is that the 68-year old Pulp Fiction star will be reprising his role in Avengers: Infinity War as he teased a future appearance.
SLJ: How Can Fury and Black Panther Not Know Each Other?
Speaking with We Got This Covered, Jackson managed to poke a bit of fun at himself and the franchise. All while filling in some important information, including his non appearance in Black Panther.
"Yeah, I'd love to do a Nick Fury movie," he remarked. "I'm always open and game. But they got Infinity Wars, two movies to do there, and after that there's Brie Larson's movie Captain Marvel, which maybe (Nick) will be part of. Also, I asked them, 'So you're doing Black Panther and the only black character in the Marvel Universe is not showing up?' And they're like, 'Nick Fury is not in Wakanda!' How can he not know the other black superhero on the planet? How the hell does that work? But they just said, 'No you're not in that one.'"
Larson might be waiting until 2019 to make her complete action superhero entrance for Captain Marvel, but she will be introduced into the MCU frame for Avengers: Infinity Wars. Her debut will coincide with a mass collection of gifted individuals, crossing over the Guardians of the Galaxy cast for good measure as they battle Josh Brolin's Thanos.
Is This The Official Logo For A:IW?
Marvel Studios are the kings of keeping the content fresh and up to date, as they gave a glimpse of what is believed to be the logo for Avengers: Infinity War. The still comes courtesy of Reddit user CobaltPanther but there has been no official confirmation from the studio themselves to state on the record if it is genuine or not.
The grab appears to be taken from a chair on set with a piece of camera laying in the background. If so, it is an old school return to the vintage Avengers days as the blockbuster gears up for a premiere on May 4, 2018.
