Samuel L. Jackson’s Nick Fury May Have Surprise Role In Thor: Ragnarok


Samuel L. Jackson may be packing his eye-patch and favorite black trench for a trip Down Under. According to Gold Coast Bulletin, the Oscar-winner and MCU stalwart has been tipped to appear in Taika Waititi’s hotly-anticipated threequel, Thor: Ragnarok.

While we understand that very little of Waititi’s space-faring adventure will take place on earth, the film is primed to ease into pre-production later this week in Australia, and sources close to Gold Coast Bulletin claim that Jackson has a small role in proceedings.


Setting up shop at Village Roadshow Studios in Queensland, if the reports are true, it’ll mean a quick reunion between Samuel L. Jackson and his Kong: Skull Island co-star Tom Hiddleston, after the pair recently collaborated on Jordan Vogt-Roberts’ creature feature.

Swapping monstrous apes for costumed heroes, though, and it’s too early to tell whether Jackson will appear in Thor: Ragnarok, let alone how Nick Fury will be incorporated into the story. Granted, there’s the possibility that he’ll cross paths with Stellan Skarsgård’s scientist, but we wouldn’t hold our breath until more information comes to light.

Remaining in the rumor camp for now, last week brought forth a speculative nugget that a major character would meet his maker in Ragnarok, a victim of the Goddess of Death, Hela (Cate Blanchett).

Also starring Jaimie Alexander, Hiddleston, Mark Ruffalo’s wayward Hulk and Chris Hemsworth as the God of Thunder, Thor: Ragnarok will arrive in theaters on November 3, 2017.
