Update: Deadline has chimed in, saying that Omega Underground’s scoop is true and there are plans to bring Samuel L. Jackson back into the MCU with Captain Marvel. Our original story runs below.
Samuel L. Jackson‘s Nick Fury was once the connective tissue between all the Marvel Cinematic Universe films, recruiting and cleaning up after the superheroes that would form his Avengers team. But once the MCU took off its training wheels and gained a life of its own, Nick Fury vanished from the scene, last appearing in Avengers: Age of Ultron.
Though he is slated to appear in the next two Avengers films, 2018’s Infinity War and 2019’s Avengers 4, he may appear in another MCU film that doesn’t deal with the big finale of the Infinity Stones and Thanos storyline. Rumor has it that Jackson could appear as Nick Fury in 2019’s Captain Marvel, co-starring alongside Brie Larson.
