That’s not all though; MTV News also got some interesting quotes about Samuel L. Jackson’s desire to bring Nick Fury into the action and he promises that we will get to see him shoot somebody.

“Nick does boss people around… But every now and then, he does kill somebody.”

“[He will] shoot somebody… I’d like for him to do something eventually… I’m totally looking forward to finally getting Nick Fury into action.”

As excited as many of us are at the prospect of The Avengers, we are looking almost too far ahead when imagining what will become of Marvel Studios’ behemoth team-up film. Time will fly but Chris Evans was only just cast as Captain America and we still have yet to see with Chris Hemsworth looks like in costume as Thor.

Outside of the lead-up to Iron Man 2, which is only a few weeks away believe it or not, there likely won’t be too much on the Captain America or Thor fronts until the Marvel Studios/Paramount presentation at San Diego Comic-Con. We will be there reporting live as it happens so stick around. Joss Whedon is directing The Avengers and I’m sure he’ll be a presence at the event.

Whedon’s already working on the project as evidenced by his recent meeting with Edgar Wright, the man who will be helming Ant-Man for Marvel, a character I expect will be introduced in The Avengers.

Iron Man 2 opens May 7, 2010, Thor opens May 5, 2011, The First Avenger: Captain America hits July 22, 2011 and The Avengers is scheduled to debut May 4, 2012.

  1. Good read, I must admit I didnt really expect Fury in Thor so no big shock there. As for a Fury solo movie, I agree with the article in that Fury is better as a team player.

    One thing, you say Iron Man 2 opens May 7th? All the ad's on TV and bus's that I have seen say April 29th

  2. I'm pretty sure Nick Fury's movie will be called “S.H.I.E.L.D” or “Nick Fury Of S.H.I.E.L.D” or something like that. We'll get to see Fury's origin and see him in action with Dum Dum Dugan, Maria Hill, Sharon Carter,Phil Coulson and two future Avengers: Jessica Drew and Carol Danvers.

  3. Yeah it would be like a cleanup/flesh out movie. Dot the eyes cross the T's kind of thing. You see S.H.I.E.L.D in the background of all these movies and it's going to lead to a part of the audience wanting to know what's with this organization? Who are these people and why do they exist? It seems to me it aught to come sooner than later though. I'm not interested in the “Avengers” becoming in some lesser way a vehicle to tell about the origins of S.H.I.E.L.D.

  4. it comes out april 29th in australia, imdb says the 7th for america and they're a pretty reliable source, especially since the movies so close to release.

  5. I really have no interested in seeing a Nick fury or shield movie SLJ is a good choice for fury but I just don't see a point to either film. He'll there is a point to a cap America film but I don't want to see that either the casting ruined the entire film for me.

  6. Am i the only person who thinks that Samuel Jackson is the wrong person for a Nick Furry Movie. Don't get me wrong, he's a great actor and plays a great Nick Furry in the later years. but to do a full Furry movie you would need a younger actor. He's 61 now and not getting younger, by the time they get around to a nick furry movie he'll be 66-67-68. I'm not saying he can't do it, i just wanna see a younger actor play out the origin of Nick Furry

  7. Why does a Nick Fury Movie have to be his origin movie? I think it would be a continuation if anything. I don't think with a Nick Fury Movie they will go backwards. This isn't going to be Avengers Origins: Nick Fury. That would be a step back.

  8. I don't think it'll be an “all out” origins movie, just flashbacks with Fury and his “Howling Commandos” and how(this Fury) had to deal with racism,the infinity serum,and how S.H.I.E.L.D was formed. All that could be handled with quick sequences without making the movie “itself” an origin movie. With Marvel Studios making a S.H.I.E.L.D movie, I'm sure it'll be awesome,have plenty of Easter Eggs and cameos. I for one would like to see an appearance of Luther Manning who later becomes “Deathlok” played by Cuba Gooding Jr.

  9. The S.H.I.E.L.D movie would have to come out RIGHT AFTER the Avengers so that the other future Avengers like Carol Danvers aka Ms.Marvel and Jessica Drew aka Spider Woman could smoothly be transitioned into Avengers #3.

  10. Joss Whedon plus Samuel L Jackson is not a good combination IMO. Jackson is one of the things that could negatively effect the Avengers. He's all about the paycheck these days as his quote states.

  11. I'm glad Samuel L. Jackson is actually getting in shape for this role. Can't wait to see the films and leading up to the Avengers. This will be interesting.

  12. That would be cool, seeing Deathlok show up in a SHIELD movie.

  13. It would be excellent timing just wonder if Marvel is up for the idea? S.H.I.E.L.D. could really use some kind of clear time/story alignment. Gen. Ross was leading the org. at one point in the comics and of course we have Fury seemingly in charge in the “I.M.” movie continuity but Ross is visible in “I.H.” so I think their's plenty of story to tell to daisy chain the whole thing together. Help people see where they, S.H.I.E.L.D. is, in relation not just to the super soldier program but Weapon X and their involvement in the history of the Hulk as well as other meta-heroes.
