Avengers: Infinity War Trailer Features A Classic McU Easter Egg

In the run-up to Avengers: Infinity War, we’ve heard a lot of talk that it and its currently-untitled sequel, Avengers 4, will act as a grand finale to the McU as we know it – a culmination of everything the franchise has been building up to over the nearly twenty films that have been released this past decade. Now that it’s finally here, the newly released trailer for the pic makes this very clear by calling back to the McU’s past in a major way.

The opening of the Infinity War trailer features the cast reciting a familiar speech for longtime Marvel fans: Nick Fury’s talk about the purpose of the Avenger Initiative back in The Avengers.

“There was an idea…” recalls Samuel L. Jackson’s Nick Fury, in what we’re not sure is a repeat of the original quote or a new recording.

“… To bring together a group of remarkable people…

Behind The Scenes Photos From Avengers: Age Of Ultron That Every Fan Should See

Often, what you see on a screen when it comes to Hollywood blockbusters is not at all what the initial footage looked like. Whether it’s CGI, practical effects, models, costumes, make-up or any of the other numerous tactics employed to create movie magic, the finished product is almost always enhanced in some manner, especially when it comes to big budget films.

Thankfully, nearly every major blockbuster has its production recorded and documented by photographers and over the years, some truly incredible, exciting and often hilarious behind the scenes photos have made their way online. And so, on that note, join us today as we settle into another edition of our weekly column, where we’ll be exploring Joss Whedon’s Avengers: Age of Ultron.

Though it didn’t quite earn the same praise its predecessor did, Whedon’s sequel to his 2012 blockbuster was still a perfectly enjoyable affair, even

New Casting Call Hints At Nick Fury Appearing In Avengers 4

Despite the tremendous amount of love fans have for Nick Fury, and the actor who plays him (Samuel L. Jackson), the character hasn’t been featured too heavily in the Marvel Cinematic Universe as of late. Though he was instrumental in putting the Avengers together, his role has been diminished quite a bit and he hasn’t been seen on screen since Age of Ultron. It looks like things will stay that way, too, as the actor isn’t signed on for any future Marvel movies just yet. Or is he?

It was only a few weeks ago when Jackson revealed that he wasn’t involved in Avengers: Infinity War or its sequel, the currently untitled Avengers 4. However, a new casting call for the latter film would seem to point to an appearance by the fan favorite, despite him denying that he holds a role in the pic. We can

Nick Fury to Return One Last Time in Avengers 4?
Last month, Samuel L. Jackson revealed in an interview that his iconic Nick Fury character won't be back for Avengers: Infinity War, which recently wrapped production, nor Avengers 4, which is shooting now, since Marvel hasn't called and asked him back yet. It seems that may not be true, though, at least for Avengers 4, since a new casting call has surfaced, stating flat out that Samuel L. Jackson will in fact star in this game changing sequel. Not only that, but one of the roles this casting call is seeking seems to be a photo double for Samuel L. Jackson. Many believe that this will serve as Fury's adios for the McU.

The news comes from Atlanta Journal-Constitution, which reveals Samuel L. Jackson is starring in the movie, alongside previously-confirmed stars Chris Hemsworth, Chris Evans and Josh Brolin. These actors will be needed for a shoot in either Atlanta or Fayetteville,

Nick Fury Won’t be in ‘Avengers: Infinity War’ or ‘Avengers 4’

Avengers: Infinity War‘ is pretty much bringing every major character that Marvel has ever set up. One person who definitely won’t return will be Samuel L. Jackson, who has confirmed that he will not appear in ‘Avengers: Infinity War‘ or the yet to be titled ‘Avengers 4‘. Although we haven’t see Jackson in the Marvel Cinematic Universe since ‘Captain America: The Winter Soldier‘ (Excluding his small cameo in ‘Avengers: Age of Ultron‘), It makes sense that we haven’t see Fury for some time.

Well, Jackson doesn’t seem too keen on this idea. In a recent interview with Yahoo!, Jackson shared this thoughts on Fury’s lack of inclusion in recent movies.

“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

Vision Returns in Avengers 4, While Nick Fury Gets Benched

Vision Returns in Avengers 4, While Nick Fury Gets Benched
Paul Bettany's Vision character will be back for Avengers 4 while Samuel L. Jackson's Nick Fury will be sitting this one out. In addition, it appears that Nick Fury will not show in Avengers: Infinity War as well. The news comes after it was announced that filming had started for Avengers 4 last week through a social media post by directors, the Russo Brothers. The production started just over a month after filming wrapped for Infinity War, which was the plan all along, but there has been a lot of speculation about who will make it to Avengers 4 to battle Thanos.

Paul Bettany recently sat down with Collider to promote his new series for Discovery called Manhunt: Unabomber. It is unclear at this time just who will survive Infinity War, but Bettany may have just unintentionally let a secret out. The British actor implied that he was involved in the 4th movie.

George Lucas still involved in Star Wars, new Captain Marvel writer, Samuel L. Jackson offers McU update – Daily News Roundup

Lucas Still Involved In Star Wars?

It has been reported many times that since George Lucas sold Lucasfilm to Disney, the man who created Star Wars has had very little involvement in the rebooted franchise. He did offer a potential storyline for Star Wars: The Force Awakens, but nothing he suggested was ever used. In a new interview with Kathleen Kennedy, the lady behind Lucasfilm has revealed that although Lucas isn’t involved in Star Wars, he is still offering some advice. “But he’ll whisper in my ear every now and then,” she said. “Usually it’s something specific or important to him about Jedi training. Things like that.” Read more here.

Samuel L. Jackson Says No Nick Fury In Upcoming ‘Avengers’ Movies

Samuel L. Jackson‘s Nick Fury has been part of the McU since its very beginnings, leading S.H.I.E.L.D. and spearheading the Avengers Initiative. Jackson appeared as Fury in almost every McU movie between 2008’s “Iron Man” up to 2014’s “Captain America: The Winter Soldier.” Then, he disappeared. There have been six additional McU movies since then and he’s appeared in none of them. Where is Nick Fury?

Samuel L. Jackson Hasn’t Had A Call For Captain Marvel, Avengers 3, 4, Or Black Panther

Nick Fury is an incredibly important character in the Marvel Cinematic Universe — or rather, he was an incredibly important character. Following the closing credits of the original Iron Man back in 2008, we were introduced to the character, and he brought with him the promise of The Avengers, which eventually came to fruition in 2012. However, following his extended role in Captain America: The Winter Soldier, Fury’s been almost nowhere to be seen. He had a cameo in Avengers: Age of Ultron, but apart from that, he seems to have all but disappeared.

There have been plenty of rumors of him showing up in one of the upcoming Avengers films, but few details have spawned from that. More recently, there have been talks about him having a fairly substantial role as a young Nick Fury in a ‘90s-set Captain Marvel. Speaking with Yahoo! Movies,

Why Hasn't Samuel L. Jackson Signed On For Captain Marvel Yet?

It was officially announced at Comic-Con this year summer that Nick Fury would play a major role in Captain Marvel. There's an interesting important detail that has come to light, though, recently. That is that Samuel L. Jackson has not signed onto the film to reprise his role. No one at Marvel Studios has talked to him about it. During a recent interview with Yahoo! the actor said:

"I haven't signed a contract, haven't seen a script. I talked to Brie [Larson] the other day, she didn't say anything. She's the only person I know that's actually in the movie."

You would think that someone would have talked to Jackson about reprising his role before they made a big "Nick Fury" announcement at Comic-Con... unless they don't plan on bringing Jackson back to reprise his role.

As far as I know, it's only been confirmed that Nick Fury would be in the film.

Samuel L. Jackson Says Nick Fury Will Not Appear in Avengers 3 or 4

Samuel L. Jackson has done it all. He has been in almost every major franchise that exists. Star Wars, Jurassic Park, Avengers are all just a few of the major properties that he has been involved with in his career. And that's just the movie properties with tie-in Lego sets! As you know, he was a key element in bringing the Avengers together and building the McU, however it sounds like he won't be there for their greatest battle.

Recently in an interview with Yahoo Movies UK, Jackson confirmed that he would not be in Avengers: Infinity War or the untitled Avengers 4. This is strange. He made the Avengers the Avengers in the first place. But if you have keen eyes, you'll notice he's been laying low for awhile now. He hasn't appeared in Spider-Man, Doctor Strange, Civil War, and it's doubtful he'll appear in the upcoming Thor: Ragnarok either.

Samuel L. Jackson Casts Doubt On Future Marvel Cinematic Universe Appearances

New Captain Marvel Concept Art Gives Us A Better Look At The Hero

It’s taken an awful long time – too long, perhaps – for Marvel to begin development on its first live-action, female-led superhero movie, but that prolonged wait has been brought to an end thanks to the upcoming Captain Marvel spinoff.

Headed up by the Oscar-winning Brie Larson (Kong: Skull Island, Room), the Carol Danvers origin story made a big splash at San Diego Comic-Con a few weeks back, where it was revealed that Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck’s standalone pic will take place in the 1990s, and it’ll feature Samuel L. Jackson’s McU mainstay, Nick Fury. The inclusion of Fury will no doubt strengthen Captain Marvel‘s ties to its overarching universe, but aside from the villainous Skrulls, little is currently known about the story that Meg LeFauve (Inside Out) and Nicole Perlman (Guardians of the Galaxy) have rustled up.

Captain Marvel Set In The 90s, Features Nick Fury And Skrulls

The Marvel Studios panel at San Diego Comic-Con revealed a whole heap of tantalizing details about Captain Marvel, the upcoming movie starring Brie Larson that will be the McU’s first female-led film.

First up, we now know that the pic will not be a contemporary piece but will be set in the 1990s. This isn’t the first time that the Marvel Cinematic Universe has taken a trip to the past, of course. Captain America: The First Avenger was set in World War II and Ant-Man established that Hank Pym had been superhero’ing since the 1960s.

In fact, fans will remember that back in 2008’s Iron Man, Nick Fury told Tony Stark that he wasn’t the only superhero around. Slowly but surely, we’re now finding out who those heroes were that existed before him.

Speaking of Fury, we’ve known for a while that Samuel L. Jackson’s S.

‘Captain Marvel’ Will Be Set in the ‘90s With Skrulls as Villains

‘Captain Marvel’ Will Be Set in the ‘90s With Skrulls as Villains
Captain Marvel” is going to be the comic book movie equivalent of a period piece.

The superhero film will be set in the ’90s, Marvel Studios chief Kevin Feige said at San Diego Comic-Con on Saturday. That means everything will unfold before Tony Stark dons Iron Man’s suit, Captain America comes out of deep freeze, Thor crashes to Earth, and before the Avengers ever think of assembling.

It also means that Samuel L. Jackson, who is reprising his role as Nick Fury won’t be wearing the S.H.I.E.L.D. agent’s trademark eyepatch. Feige said the film will take place before Fury loses his eye.

Newswire: Captain Marvel is set in the ‘90s and features the Skrulls

During Marvel’s Comic-Con panel, the studio dropped some interesting reveals for Brie Larson’s upcoming Captain Marvel movie. For starters, we now know that the movie will be a ‘90s-set prequel to the rest of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and though we already knew that Samuel L. Jackson will be reprising his role as Nick Fury in the movie, we now know something shocking about how he’ll look in the movie: Apparently, Fury will still have both eyes, meaning Captain Marvel may reveal why he wears that iconic and stylish eyepatch in the other films.

The most surprising Captain Marvel reveal had nothing to do with eyes or the ‘90s, though, as Marvel also announced that the villains in the movie will be none other than the Skrulls, a race of shape-changing aliens with gross chins and green skin. This is clearly the result of some kind of

Samuel L. Jackson Confirmed for 'Captain Marvel'

Recently we heard a rumor that Samuel L. Jackson might be joining the cast of Captain Marvel alongside lead actress Brie Larson. Now Deadline has confirmed the report that Jackson will be making an appearance as Nick Fury (above in The Avengers). Jackson last appeared as Fury in Avengers: Age of Ultron back in 2015. The Academy Award-winning Larson was first touted to play Captain Marvel in June 2016; Marvel confirmed the news during Comic-Con last year. We've learned a few other things about the movie so far.   Who is writing the screenplay? Do we know the premise yet?
