One of the many joys of the Marvel Cinematic Universe is that you never know who will appear where. Tony Stark can visit Bruce Banner and seek his advice. Ant-Man and the Falcon can mix it up on the roof of Avengers HQ. Agent Carter can enlist the help of the Howling Commandos for a particularly dangerous mission. And Lady Sif can return to Midgard to aid the Son of Coul on occasion. So who will be the next beloved character from the House of Ideas pantheon of heroes and villains to show up somewhere family unexpected? Well, in Quentin Tarantino’s words, he’s a bad mother f***er.
Australian news site Gold Coast Bulletin recently reported that Taika Waititi’s ‘Thor: Ragnarok’ would be moving into Village Roadshow Studios after ‘Kong: Skull Island’ and ‘The Nest’ wrapped up shooting there. However, they revealed that a few cast members from the upcoming King Kong film will be sticking around for the God of Thunder’s latest big screen adventure. Though we already knew that Tom Hiddleston would be returning to reprise his role as Loki, it appears that Samuel L. Jackson will be pulling double duty as well when he dusts off his iconic eyepatch to bring former S.H.I.E.L.D. Director Nick Fury to life once again.
When we last saw him in ‘Avengers: Age of Ultron’, Fury was giving the Black Widow an update on the Hulk’s whereabouts. Considering that the Jade Giant will play a part in the Thunderer’s next movie, Fury’s knowledge of the Hulk and his resources could be a good reason to include him in the upcoming Phase Three film to aid Thor somehow. But we should still take this news with a grain of salt for now until the official press release announcing that production has commenced is released.
Do you want to see Samuel L. Jackson bring Nick Fury to ‘Thor: Ragnarok’? How do you think that the former Director of S.H.I.E.L.D. would factor into the events of Asgard’s potential demise? Share your thoughts and theories in the comments below.
