The 'Kong: Skull Island' actor might reprise his Marvel role in the upcoming female superhero movie led by Brie Larson.
Samuel L. Jackson might join "Captain Marvel". During a press junket of his new movie "Kong: Skull Island", the actor who plays Nick Fury in Marvel Cinematic Universe teases his appearance in Marvel's first female superhero solo movie.
"Yeah, I'd love to do a Nick Fury movie. 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," Jackson told We Got This Covered.
"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.' "
"Captain Marvel" is planned for March 8, 2019 release while "Black Panther" starring Chadwick Boseman is due February 16, 2018 in the States. Directed by Ryan Coogler and supported by Michael B. Jordan, Lupita Nyong'o, Martin Freeman, Angela Bassett, Forest Whitaker and Andy Serkis, "Black Panther" will mark Marvel's first black superhero solo movie.
Samuel L. Jackson last played Nick Fury in "Avengers: Age of Ultron" in 2015. He will reprise his role in "Avengers: Infinity War" and an untitled Avengers movie.
