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.

Among the announcements were an Ant-Man sequel titled Ant-Man and the Wasp set for 2018, new release dates for Black Panther and Captain Marvel and three yet-to-be-announced Marvel movies scheduled for 2020.

To many Marvel fans, Samuel L. Jackson is Nick Fury. Not only has Jackson played the character in five different MCU films over the past five years, the Ultimate version of the character was actually modeled after Jackson — years before Iron Man came out.
But there was a time long ago (well, 1998) when David Hasselhoff was Nick Fury. And while most people seem to have forgotten that by now, the Hoff hasn’t. In fact, he’s pretty sure that he’s still the better Nick Fury, and he’d like the chance to play the role again.

Nick Fury is one of the more prominent characters in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, having appeared in five out of the six titles to date. Yet he’s never actually appeared in his own standalone film. For a while, it seemed like a S.H.I.E.L.D. movie might be coming out after The Avengers, but as we’ve since learned, that project has since evolved into a TV series. So as of now, it looks like the closest thing to a Nick Fury movie we’ll be getting is Captain America: The Winter Soldier.
In a new interview, Jackson touched upon his role in the Captain America sequel, and cast doubt on whether a Nick Fury-centric film is even necessary at this stage. Read his comments after the jump.

Since Nick Fury’s surprise cameo at the end of Iron Man, Marvel has been actively trying to figure out how best to tie together each of the stand-alone superhero outings leading up to The Avengers. Between Tony Stark’s mention of the “Avengers Initiative” in The Incredible Hulk and the locating of Thor’s hammer in Iron Man 2 — along with Fury’s more prominent presence during that film’s latter half — it’s debatable to what extent these inclusions actually contribute to the overall narrative. Are they purely fan service, or are they helping drive forward the story?
Come this summer, we may finally find out the answer. Or will we even have to wait that long?
After confirmation by Samuel L. Jackson that he would not be making an appearance in Thor, it now seems that isn’t the case. Nick Fury will in fact be featured in both of this year’s Marvel blockbusters, showing up in Thor and Captain America: The First Avenger in equal measure. Learn more about his roles in those films, as well his role in The Avengers, after the break. Read More »
When Samuel L. Jackson was signed to a nine-film deal by Marvel, you had to bet that part of the attraction of the deal was that he’d eventually get a pretty big role, if not a star turn, in one of the studio’s projects.
So far, Jackson’s Nick Fury has been a small part of the Iron Man films, and we know he won’t appear in Thor. But he will be in Captain America, and is likely to be a big part of The Avengers. Going beyond that, Jackson says we should expect a S.H.I.E.L.D. movie to follow Marvel’s team picture. Read More »
