Is Samuel L. Jackson really in The Avengers: Infinity War?
It could be a possibility.
Back in September of 2016 actually saw Samuel L. Jackson confirm Nick Fury for both The Avengers: Infinity War and The Avengers 4.
“I hear I’m around in [Avengers: Infinity War] and [Avengers] 4. I hear I’m back,” Jackson said.
However, back in August of 2017 when asked about appearing in Black Panther, the actor also made mention he didn’t appear in Captain America: Civil War and won’t be in The Avengers: Infinity War and The Avengers 4.
“I wasn’t in the superhero argument movie [Captain America: Civil War]. I’m not in Avengers 3 and 4. They’re shooting them now, and they haven’t called me yet,” Jackson said. “They wouldn’t let me go to Black Panther-ville, so it’s kinda like how you gonna make a black Marvel movie and not let Nick Fury show up in it?!”
It is known that Samuel L. Jackson will next appear in Captain Marvel, but now a potential clue offers Nick Fury may be returning to the MCU even sooner.
The IMDb page for The Avengers: Infinity War happens to list Jake Garber as being a part of The Avengers: Infinity War as the “make up artist for Samuel L. Jackson,” with another listing featuring Qualen Bradley as the “stand in: Samuel L. Jackson.”
So we see two listings have it that people associated with Jackson are involved with the movie, with the second listing even stating someone is being used as a stand in for Samuel L. Jackson.
Now while you might think that Qualen Bradley is being used to replace Samuel L. Jackson, that doesn’t appear to be the case as Qualen Bradley was also the stand in for Chadwick Boseman in Black Panther.
Qualen Bradley is also listed as the stand in for Samuel L. Jackson in The Avengers 4.
Regarding Nick Fury returning, it would seem pretty odd that the former head of SHIELD wouldn’t make some sort of appearance if the Earth and the entire universe is under the threat of Thanos, right?
Bear in mind IMDB can be edited by users, so the listing could always be false, but let’s hope that Nick Fury does return!
