Nick Fury in Avengers Infinity War

Without Nick Fury, there would have been no assembly of The Avengers. In a credits scene after Iron Man hit theaters in 2008, Samuel L. Jackson appears in Tony Stark’s mansion to chastise his cockiness and talk to him about something called The Avengers Initiative. After that came four more movies leading up to the debut of Marvel’s superhero team on the big screen and an entire cinematic universe that is still growing. But it appears Nick Fury isn’t as important to the future of the MCU as he was in the beginning.

Samuel L. Jackson recently sat down for an interview to promote the upcoming release of The Hitman’s Bodyguard, which hits theaters this weekend, and he revealed that he wasn’t asked to make an appearance in either Black Panther or Avengers: Infinity War. Find out what the actor had to say about the lack of Nick Fury in Avengers Infinity War and more below. Read More »

Thor Ragnarok Comic-Con Footage and Panel

Members of the /Film staff spent much of the past week in San Diego to cover Comic-Con 2017, the enormous convention that explores every single corner of the geek world (and surely you’ve heard of it and already knew that).

We explored the world of Blade Runner 2049 in a special VR experience. We watched 7,000 people go totally nuts over the first trailer for Stranger Things season 2.

But that’s only the tip of the iceberg. We’ve compiled all of our Comic-Con coverage from the past week into one handy post, organized by category. So please: peruse and enjoy and get your fix.

Black Panther Comic-Con Panel

The Marvel Studios panel at Comic-Con was, as expected, the geek equivalent of a rock concert. And Black Panther, which is set to arrive early next year, received a rockstar’s reception. In addition to a panel Q&A with director Ryan Coogler and members of the cast, the crowd was treated to a scene from the film and a brand new trailer (which we were told won’t be online for some time).

But that’s why we’re here. We’ve got you covered. Here’s what you need to know.
