At the end of 2014’s “Captain America: Winter Soldier,” S.H.I.E.L.D. was no more. And with Nick Fury’s absence during this year’s “Captain America: Civil War,” it seems that the Avengers might have also lost their most trusted mentor. But don’t count the former director of S.H.I.E.L.D. out, however. According to Samuel L. Jackson, S.H.I.E.L.D. may be dismantled — but it still has a place within the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
“There’s some way of fixing what they created, and hopefully somebody has that going on or Nick Fury is out there — wherever he is, probably hanging out with Jules and walking the world — figuring out what happened and how it got to that particular place,” Jackson told ComingSoon.net during a press conference for “Miss Peregrine’s Home For Peculiar Children.” “Maybe they’ll find out that all that was part of a ruse to get to something else also. That would be great.”
It should be noted that the restoration of S.H.I.E.L.D. — including the reveal of a new director — is a major part of the current season of ABC’s “Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.”
Nick Fury was last seen in 2015’s “Avengers: Age of Ultron.” While there’s no official confirmation that Nick Fury will make his triumphant return in “Avengers: Infinity Wars” — what promises to be one of the biggest films of the MCU — Jackson seems confident. After all, someone with oversight has to help the Avengers battle Thanos (Josh Brolin) and his Infinity Stones.
“They’ll bring me back somehow, some way, for some reason,” Jackson said. “I mean, they didn’t have me around to referee the kids when they didn’t go to their rooms and got in this big old fight. We’ll see what happens.”
“Avengers: Infinity Wars” starts filming in Atlanta this November and will be released on May 4, 2018. The fourth Avengers film, which will have a separate title, will be shot concurrently and be released on May 3, 2019.
