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.
