Samuel L. Jackson is feeling the fury (or at least disappointment) of Nick Fury after his character has been sidelined from multiple Marvel movies.
Fury helped launch the Marvel Cinematic Universe as we know it with his post-credits scene in "Iron Man." He was last seen briefly in "Avengers: Age of Ultron," after being declared "officially dead" in "Captain America: The Winter Soldier."
It was recently confirmed that Jackson will co-star with Brie Larson in "Captain Marvel," which is set in the 1990s, before the first "Iron Man." But when will be able to see what's in Fury's future?
In an interview with Yahoo UK, taped before the "Captain Marvel" confirmation, Jackson revealed his confusion about his place in the MCU.
"I've been rumored to be in several different Marvel movies that I haven't shown up in. I wasn't in the 'superhero argument' movie ['Captain America: Civil War'], I'm not in 'Avengers 3 and 4'. They're shooting them now, and they haven't called me yet. They wouldn't let me go to 'Black Panther'-ville, so it's kinda like 'How you gonna make a black Marvel movie and not let Nick Fury show up in it?!'"
Can we at least agree that "Superhero Argument Movie" should be the new official title of "Civil War"?
Maybe Marvel will see that Jackson is ready to be tagged in and find a role for him in "Avengers 4," which is now filming. Or maybe it doesn't make sense for his character. Considering everyone under the sun was cast for "Infinity War," it is surprising to hear he won't be in it. They already finished filming that one, so if no one called Jackson after this particular interview, he's out.
"Captain Marvel" is scheduled to open March 8, 2019.
