Thor - Samuel Jackson Confirms Nick Fury will NOT Appear

Labels: , , , , ,

After hearing that Joss Whedon will be directing The Avengers (not to mention re-writing the script), it would appear that the planets are aligning and Marvel's plan for an ensemble superhero movie is coming together. One of the driving forces, at least on-screen, is S.H.I.E.L.D. agent Nick Fury as he tries to bring together The Avengers. Collider and IESB both attended a roundtable interview with the man behind the eye-patched badass, Samuel L. Jackson, who revealed that he will not be appearing in Thor, but did say that The Avengers is supposed to start shooting in February and is as much his movie as any other heroes.

Apparently Nick Fury's absence from Thor was just as surprising for Jackson as it is for us, but the actor confirms he will be shooting scenes for The First Avenger: Captain America sometime this summer. As far as Thor goes, obviously it wasn't in his hands to decide, but he's not sure why he won't be appearing in it:

"I have no idea. I'm not in charge of making those decisions. I thought I was. They said I was in the trades, and I was like, 'Oh, I've got a job!' And then, I called my agent and she said, 'Nah, you're not in it. They misprinted.' I was like, 'Well shit, they need to pay me just ’cause they put my name in it.'"
