Samuel L. Jackson Says He’s Not In Avengers: Endgame


Nick Fury’s been staging a major comeback in the MCU of late. His cameo during the post-credits scene of Avengers: Infinity War was the first time we’d seen the former S.H.I.E.L.D. director since 2015’s Avengers: Age of Ultron and now he’ll have significant roles in at least two of 2019’s Marvel flicks, in the form of Captain Marvel and Spider-Man: Far From Home.

Given this, everyone expects him to show up in Avengers: Endgame, too. However, Samuel L. Jackson says otherwise, as according to the actor, Mr. Fury will be absent from the film. Speaking on The Jonathan Ross Show, the fan favorite was asked if he’ll be in the Infinity War sequel and said:

“No, why would I be? I don’t have any superpowers, I can’t fight battles. No, I’m not in it.”

Of course, seeing as Fury turned to dust at the end of Infinity War, it might not be so shocking to learn that he won’t be in Endgame. Then again, Far From Home is apparently taking place after the events of the aforementioned sequel and he seems to be alive and well in that. Not to mention that Endgame is also set to be the finale of the first ten years of the MCU and it’d feel a bit odd if the man who brought the Avengers together in the first place wasn’t there for it.

As such, we suspect that Jackson is just trying his best to keep Marvel’s secrets close to his chest here and we can indeed expect to see Fury when Endgame rolls around, even for a brief cameo that explains his resurrection in FFH. But who knows?

One way or another, all will be revealed when Avengers: Endgame hits theaters on April 26th. First, though, you can catch the young Nick Fury on the big screen in Captain Marvel starting March 8th.
