No Samuel L. Jackson For Captain America: Civil War
It's learned Samuel L. Jackson will not be a part of Captain America: Civil War.
Jackson recently spoke with Collider where he let the news be known.
I’m not in Captain America 3. I can’t figure that out, but I’m not. I guess I’m still out there, trying to figure out what happened to S.H.I.E.L.D. and who these other people are.
The article notes Jackson has two more Marvel movies left on his contract, which may mean Nick Fury is being saved for the Avengers: Infinity War movies, but Jackson offers he still wants to stick around for more.
“Of course [I’m interested in returning]! I’m looking for a contract extension right now, yeah. I’m looking to re-up.”
Jackson has been featured as Nick Fury in seven Marvel movies as well as video games and Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D.
"Captain America: Civil War" has a May 6, 2016 release date directed by Anthony and Joe Russo starring Chris Evans, Robert Downey Jr., Scarlett Johansson, Jeremy Renner, Elizabeth Olsen, Sebastian Stan, Anthony Mackie, Frank Grillo, Paul Bettany, Don Cheadle, Emily VanCamp, William Hurt, Martin Freeman and Chadwick Boseman as Black Panther.
Captain America: Civil War picks up where Avengers: Age of Ultron left off, as Steve Rogers leads the new team of Avengers in their continued efforts to safeguard humanity. After another international incident involving the Avengers results in collateral damage, political pressure mounts to install a system of accountability and a governing body to determine when to enlist the services of the team. The new status quo fractures the Avengers while they try to protect the world from a new and nefarious villain.
