Samuel L. Jackson Is Still Upset Nick Fury Wasn’t In Captain America: Civil War

Which side would Nick Fury have taken in Captain America: Civil War? Sadly, we’ll never know, and Samuel L. Jackson is still upset about it.

During an interview with The Hollywood Reporterthe 73-year-old actor opened up about why he felt left out when faced with the rumble of Marvel superheroes in Civil War.

“I bugged them, I still bug them, about the Civil War because I’m like, ‘How could the kids have a fight and Nick Fury didn’t show up? “, He said. “Like, ‘What’s going on here? Everyone go to your room. But they didn’t need me for that. They did, but they didn’t.

Captain America: Civil War essentially pitted Earth’s Mightiest Heroes against each other. The film loosely followed Marvel’s Civil War comics, with Captain America and Iron Man clashing with the Sokovia Accords – a new international treaty requiring superheroes to register under United Nations supervision. Fractured the superhero community, it was time for every hero to choose sides…

“That was the thing with the Avengers movies, they all had different personalities and they were able to blossom once we finished the initial movie,” Jackson said. “The original film was to introduce these people to who they are, and these are the things they can do. Now that’s how they interact and they’re not all nice.

But it turns out the writers had a reason to leave it out. “We didn’t want him to take one side or the other,” said writer Christopher Markus. The LA Times in 2016. “Because that’s not his place in the universe.”

The last time we saw Nick Fury was in Spider-Man: Far From Home in 2019. But he will be back. Secret Invasion picks up where Nick Fury left off, with the former leader of SHIELD embroiled in a political thriller involving the shapeshifting Skrulls who have infiltrated Earth. Looks like Jackson is having a lot of fun with it.

“Well, I can have a whole life as Nick Fury who isn’t Nick Fury at work,” he said. “You know, we can go home with me and see what’s going on with me at home or when I’m alone or when I’m not that strong and Nick Fury, or when I take off a back brace because Nick Fury is old.”

“Some things you can do that you normally can’t do [in the films] because the character has to present that [trumpeting heroically] duh-dunna-duh kind of facade, and that’s what movies are for. And when you can do it long, you can show that even superheroes have their hard times.

Secret Invasion stars Samuel L. Jackson as Nick Fury alongside Cobie Smulders, Ben Mendelsohn, Martin Freeman, and Don Cheadle. Kingsley Ben-Adir has joined the series as a mystery villain, with Olivia Colman, Emilia Clarke, Killian Scott, Christopher McDonald and Carmen Ejogo in currently unknown roles.
