Avengers: Infinity War -- Samuel L. Jackson Doesn't Know If He's In The Movie
"I keep asking, 'Am I in Infinity War?'"
Will Samuel L. Jackson reprise his role as Nick Fury in 2018's Avengers: Infinity War? The actor apparently does not know. In a chat with Collider, the interviewer said it's known that Fury is in the movie, but Jackson said he hasn't been told yet if that's actually the case.
"You know that?! How do you know that, and I don't know that?! You know that, for real?!" he said to the interviewer.
Asked what he's most excited about for Infinity War, Jackson said he doesn't know since he hasn't heard if he'll be in it. "I keep asking, 'Am I in Infinity War?'" he said.
Filming on Infinity War is currently underway in Atlanta, with a number of cast members, including Robert Downey Jr. (Iron Man), Chris Pratt (Star-Lord), and Tom Holland (Spider-Man) seen on set already.
But when will Jackson head down to shoot his scenes, if he is indeed in the movie? "I don't know," he said, providing a flat-out "no" when asked if he'd been given a date to report to set.
The first footage of Infinity War was released last month--watch it here.
"Avengers: Infinity War is the culmination of the entire Marvel Cinematic Universe that started in May 2008 with Iron Man," Marvel boss Kevin Feige said last month. "Thanos shows us why he is the biggest, the best, the baddest villain that we've ever had. And the most frightening villain that the Avengers have ever faced."
Directed by brothers Joe and Anthony Russo, Infinity War hits theaters on May 4, 2018. In other news, it was recently confirmed that actor Terry Notary, who plays the massive CG beast King Kong in Kong Skull: Island, will play one of Thanos' henchmen in Infinity War.
