CAP Cast Teases AVENGERS: AGE OF ULTRON; Nick Fury’s Role Little More Than A Cameo


furyWe’re just over a week away from the release of Captain America: The Winter Soldier. While it’s being touted as Marvel‘s greatest solo movie to date, it also sets up Avengers: Age of Ultron in a very big way. During the last leg of the media blitz for the film, the cast of The Winter Soldier have started to open up about the highly-anticipated Avengers sequel. Scarlett Johansson and Chris Evans offering up some intriguing tidbits about the film’s new cast members, but it’s Samuel L. Jackson that offers up the most surprising piece of Avengers news.

Speaking with Yahoo Movies UK, Jackson revealed that Nick Fury‘s role in the second Avengers film is little more than a glorified cameo. He told the site “I’m just kind of passing by there [in Avengers 2] you know. I’m not doing so much, I don’t think. Because it’s another one of those ‘people who have powers fighting people who have powers.’ That’s why I didn’t get to New York in The Avengers. There’s not a lot I could do except shoot a gun.

Part of the reason behind the diminished role for Fury may be due to the state S.H.I.E.L.D. is left in after the events of The Winter Soldier. Hawkeye (Jerem Renner) and Bruce/Hulk (Mark Ruffalo) will have much larger roles this time around, so that may be a small contributing factor to the lack of Fury in Age of Ultron too. Chris Evans, Scarlett Johansson, and the Russo brothers touch on the fate of S.H.I.E.L.D., the “demons” of each Avenger that will be explored with Ultron, how Captain America: The Winter Soldier is really a two-parter, and Scarlet Witch/Quicksilver in the videos with Total Film below. Those are slightly spoilery, so we’ll just let you make the choice to watch those. What do you think about the Avengers: Age of Ultron teasers?
