The cast of Marvel’s Black Panther movie is ridiculously stacked, with Angela Bassett, Forest Whitaker, and Sterling K. Brown joining Chadwick Boseman’s superhero king in the fictional country of Wakanda, but one established Marvel actor is a little disappointed that he hasn’t gotten a call. Speaking with We Got This Covered, Samuel L. Jackson suggested that he thinks Marvel isn’t using him quite as often as it should, which is to say that he (rightfully) thinks he should be in basically every Marvel movie. Jackson’s Nick Fury last appeared in Avengers: Age Of Ultron and probably won’t show up again until Avengers: Infinity War, but he was really hoping he’d get a chance to meet the Black Panther:

Having sat out Captain America: Civil War, Samuel L. Jackson’s Nick Fury will make his return to the Marvel Cinematic Universe next year as part of Avengers: Infinity War, and the star has been chatting to We Got This Covered about whether we can expect to see him popping up anywhere else in Phase Three.
“I’d love to do a Nick Fury movie,” said Jackson. “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. 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? »

When M. Night Shyamalan’s Split arrived in theaters, it’s fair to say that audiences probably didn’t expect a whole lot from it. Fans of the director’s early work were in for quite a surprise though when it was revealed that the film actually took place in the same cinematic universe as Unbreakable, with Bruce Willis’ David Dunn even showing up near the end to tie it all together. With the origin story for James McAvoy’s villain now out of the way, it’s time to start looking ahead to what comes next, and according to the director himself, that’ll be Unbreakable 2 (or Split 2 – a title hasn’t been chosen yet).
Details on what the sequel will involve are scarce, as you can imagine, but we know that Shyamalan already has an outline ready and will be working with both Disney and Universal to bring his vision to life. »

The Marvel Cinematic Universe can be a complicated place to keep track of, with so many characters bouncing in and out of various films. One of the major players is Samuel L. Jackson's Nick Fury, who was first introduced in the now-infamous post-credit scene in the very first McU movie, Iron Man. Fans last saw Nick Fury in 2015's Avengers: Age of Ultron, although he skipped out on Captain America: Civil War and Doctor Strange. There are rumors he may be appearing in Thor: Ragnarok, though that seems unlikely since most of the movie is believed to be set in the cosmos. Surprisingly, the actor revealed that his beloved Nick Fury character actually won't be showing up in Black Panther. Instead, he'll probably be making his presence known in Captain Marvel. And he's definitely in Infinity War.
Black Panther recently started filming, but when the full cast list was unveiled last month, »
Marvel has a big year planned for 2017, both behind the scenes and in theaters. Right now, Avengers: Infinity War is shooting in Atlanta back-to-back with Black Panther. And they have Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, Spider-Man: Homecoming and Thor: Ragnarok coming to a multiplex near you in the months ahead. So we're going to be bombarded with various items from all five movies in what is being called a superhero tsunami. Today, we get a new logo for Infinity War.
This logo was spotted on the back of a crew chair on set in Atalanta as shooting continues, and shared on Reddit. The cast for the movie is quite epic and features McU stars such as Josh Brolin (Thanos), Chris Hemsworth (Thor), Sebastian Stan (Bucky/Winter Soldier), Scarlett Johansson (Natasha Romanoff/Black Widow), Jeremy Renner (Clint Barton/Hawkeye), Chris Evans (Captain America/Steve Rogers), Elizabeth Olsen (Wanda Maximoff/Scarlet »
Some Marvel fans were surprised, even shocked, when the official cast list for Black Panther was announced, and Samuel L. Jackson's name was no where to be seen. But perhaps, no one was quite as shocked and surprised as the man himself. Jackson has recently been out and about promoting his co-starring role in Kong: Skull Island, and he made it clear that he was just as stumped by Nick Fury not making the cut for Black Panther as everyone else.
Samuel L. Jackson recently sat down with We Got This Covered, when the subject of the Marvel Cinematic Universe came up. It isn't really known where Jackson's Nick Fury might pop up next. Though many have suspected he'll return for the epic 2-Part ensemble Avengers: Infinity War, which is said to be bringing back every surviving character previously seen in the McU.
Jackson confirms that he will be in Infinity War. »

Alongside Ava DuVernay’s 13th, Raoul Peck can also boast having an Oscar nominated documentary this year – for his pertinent, incredibly moving feature I Am Not Your Negro. It’s so important for films of this nature to be lauded in such a way, and therefore stand more of a chance of reaching a broad audience, with both productions unforgiving in their depiction of racial inequality in the United States. What they also share in common is the ability to evoke feelings of such anger in the viewer, as it’s hard not to leave this title with an overwhelming sense of all-consuming rage and bafflement, at the fact people are treated in such an inhumane way purely due the colour of their skin.
“Written by James Baldwin” appears on the screen in the opening credits, and though a documentary this is definitely a film that comes »

We Got This Covered recently had the chance to sit down with Samuel L. Jackson to discuss Kong: Skull Island, and the Marvel Cinematic Universe inevitably came up. We already know that Nick Fury will return in Avengers: Infinity War after sitting out Captain America: Civil War, but what lies beyond that for the fan-favourite former S.H.I.E.L.D. Director? Unsurprsingly, Jackson is still keen on a solo outing for Fury, but he seemed to heavily imply that the hero will make his presence felt in Captain Marvel a few years from now. He also explained why Fury won't be hanging out with T'Challa in Wakanda next year. "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. »
After spending a handful of years in the doghouse due to churning out truly terrible movies like The Happening and The Last Airbender, it seems like director M. Night Shyamalan is back. His 2015 movie The Visit helped, but it is his most recent movie Split that has really healed his damaged reputation. Since Split 2 is probably going to happen, there are a lot of questions, given the big reveal at the end of the first movie. One of those questions has seemingly been answered, because it looks like Samuel L. Jackson will be involved in the sequel.
Fair warning, this article will contain spoilers for Split. The actor recently spoke with Collider about Split and his potential involvement in the sequel. He revealed that even he didn't know about the ending, in which, it was revealed that Split and Unbreakable take place in the same universe, via a cameo by »
Ladies and gentlemen, M. Night Shyamalan is back!
Man, does it feel good to say that. Words can’t express just how great it is to see one of this generations most promising filmmakers get back into the spotlight in a good way. Like many film lovers around my age, Shyamalan’s movies played a big part in shaping my personal identity as as cinephile and as a storyteller in general. So it broke my heart when he headed down the road to awfulness with some of his more recent films. But between 2015’s The Visit and the more recent Split, he’s officially back on the map.
Those who have seen the film know that it left things off in a particularly intriguing way — a way that you should Not allow to be spoiled if you have yet to see it. As such, we’re going to have to »

If you cast your mind way back to 2008’s Iron Man, you’ll remember that it was Samuel L. Jackson’s Nick Fury who properly kicked off what’s now become known as the Marvel Cinematic Universe, revealing to Tony Stark his plans for the Avengers initiative. It was a post-credits scene that may not have meant a whole lot to the average moviegoer at the time, but one that’s now spawned what’s become perhaps the biggest franchise in cinema.
Unfortunately, the last time we saw Jackson’s fan-favorite character was quite a while ago. Back in 2015’s Avengers: Age of Ultron, in fact. He’s still around though, and with a role in Joe and Anthony Russo’s Avengers: Infinity War to look forward to, we should be seeing a lot more of him in the near future. But what about the studio’s plans for the character beyond that? »

With just a few weeks left until the March 10 release of Kong: Skull Island, Warner Bros. has unleashed an action-packed new clip, which shows King Kong springing into action against one of the vicious Skull Crawlers. If that wasn't enough, we also have an IMAX featurette, where we hear from stars Tom Hiddleston, Brie Larson and Jason Mitchell. The video also features Samuel L. Jackson, who compares his character Preston Packard to Ahab from Moby Dick, with King Kong serving as his "white whale." Brie Larson adds how happy she is that they have the "biggest King Kong of them all," which has been teased by director Jordan Vogt-Roberts in the past.
Warner Bros. debuted this clip earlier today, with Fandango premiering the IMAX featurette, which includes plenty of new footage of some of the other creatures on Skull Island. While Kong is certainly king on this island, there are »
Samuel L. Jackson doesn’t starve for work. Maybe I should’ve included explicit language in that remark, to make it more appropriate, but we can’t change the past, so let’s move on. The 68-year-old workaholic is constantly bouncing between Hollywood’s biggest and newest properties, and that won’t be changing any time soon.
The mega-popular actor will be reprising his supporting role as Frozone in Brad Bird’s The Incredibles 2, and while details are still scarce, he’s now revealed some brief teases regarding the icy superhero companion’s return to the big screen. Appropriately, it sounds pretty cool.
Speaking with Collider about next month’s Kong: Skull Island, Jackson talked briefly about his upcoming animated return. He couldn’t say much, of course, but he did confirm his involvement.
We’ve been in the studio one day so far. One day so far, but »

King Kong is not to be trifled with. As Jordan Vogt-Roberts’ blockbuster reboot inches closer and closer to its March 10th release, Legendary has spent the past few weeks drumming up excitement with a steady stream of teasers, eye-popping promos and nail-biting clips featuring some nervy exchanges between the human cast of Kong: Skull Island.
But if Samuel L. Jackson’s Lieutenant Colonel Packard and John Goodman’s mysterious Monarch operative Bill Randa took center stage earlier this week, Legendary has now summoned Kong himself to lock horns with one of the island’s many Skull Crawlers. The latter species will no doubt be categorized as another Muto (Massive Unidentified Terrestrial Object) when Kong: Skull Island lights up the silver screen, but the real question is whether those Skull Crawlers have any relation to Godzilla, the real king of monsters.
Skull Island is a prequel, remember – just don’t refer »
