Not many would forget that Samuel L. Jackson has played Nick Fury in the Marvel Comics Universe for over a decade -- but co-star Gwyneth Paltrow seems to have, as she didn't know why he was in Avengers: Endgame.
The two, along with a good chunk of the MCU, appeared for Tony Stark's funeral. On the set, though, Paltrow was uncertain why Jackson was there, according to Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige.
"Gwyneth Paltrow [was] asking why Sam Jackson was there," Feige said, "And the other actors [were] jumping in saying, 'What are you talking about? He's Nick Fury! You've been in movies with him.'"
Jackson's scenes have been limited to cameo roles in the last two Avengers films, but Paltrow was also featured in both movies. Both actors also appeared in 2008's Iron Man, the first film in the MCU. So in the movies, at least, the two have been acquainted for over a decade.
Feige also revealed additional details about the funeral scene, saying, "[The funeral] was shot in October 2017, the day we shot the 10th anniversary photo. That's why we did that photo then, because we had everybody there. And it was astounding, having all those actors there, and it's very solemn in the movie, because they're all great actors, it's very effective. On the day it was just insane."
This isn't the first time Paltrow has had a memory lapse regarding her MCU co-stars. Bucky Barnes actor Sebastian Stan previously trolled her over continually forgetting that they'd met, and she also seemingly forgot about her appearance in Spider-Man: Homecoming.
