Samuel L Jackson: smaller Nick Fury role in Avengers 2
It doesn't look like you'll be getting much Nick Fury for your money in Joss Whedon's Avengers: Age Of Ultron...
In Marvel's new movie, Captain America: The Winter Soldier, you get a fair amount of Samuel L Jackson's Nick Fury for your money. Jackson, who has a nine picture deal with the studio, has perhaps his most substantive part to play yet as Fury in the new film.
But going into Joss Whedon's Avengers: Age Of Ultron, Nick Fury's role in that movie is set to be a lot smaller. Jackson himself confirmed this to Yahoo Movies, saying that "I'm just kind of passing by there, you know. I'm not doing so much". He added that "it’s another one of those ‘people who have powers fighting people who have powers’. That’s why I didn’t get to New York in The Avengers. There’s not a lot I could do except shoot a gun".
Yahoo also reports that Anthony Mackie is unlikely to appear in The Avengers 2.
The main first unit shoot of Avengers: Age Of Ultron kicks off in a week or two, ahead of the film's release next summer.
