Samuel L. Jackson Not Sure He'll Appear in Thor
Posted 01.27.10 by Ryan
Clark Gregg has been confirmed to return as S.H.I.E.L.D. Agent Coulson in Thor, but what about Samuel L. Jackson as S.H.I.E.L.D. director Nick Fury? If Jackson is indeed appearing in Thor, as many have reported, the actor is apparently the last to know. Jackson told MTV that "nobody's told me anything" regarding the upcoming movie.
I was reading the trades last week and I saw the cast list. My name was in it, so maybe I am doing something that I don't know about and I'll hear about it soon. I don't know what's going on. Since Disney's bought the franchise, I have no idea what Marvel told them or even if my deal with Marvel is still valid.
When Jackson signed a nine-movie deal with Marvel back in February, Thor was one of the movies included. Jackson will appear in Iron Man 2, and it has been assumed that like his cameo in Iron Man, Jackson will appear in all Avengers-related movies as he recruits The Avengers team. Jackson either knows this and is excellent at keeping Marvel's activities a secret or someone needs to pick up the phone and make a call to Jackson.
