Samuel L. Jackson Does Not Know if Nick Fury Appears in 'Infinity War'
Marvel/Disney
Reports have been circulating for a while now that Nick Fury would be one of the dozens of characters to appear in next year's Infinity War, but it sounds like one very important person is unaware of these reports: that character's actor, Samuel L. Jackson.

In a Collider interview published today, Nick Fury himself claimed he has no knowledge of his eyepatch-wearing character appearing in the 2018 superhero blockbuster, and that Marvel never even contacted him about it. After being told that Fury is set for an Infinity War appearance, Jackson responds, "You know that? How do you know that, and I don't know that? You know that, for real?" He goes on to say that he hasn't been given a shooting date by Marvel Studios. At least, not yet.

Opening quote
Collider: Hopefully, that announcement was accurate. So, what are you most excited about with that installment of the franchise?

Jackson: I don't know. I haven't seen it. I haven't heard that. I keep asking, 'Am I in Infinity War?' 
Closing quote


OK. So this is strange. Just last month, in an interview with We Got This Covered, the actor said he was in Infinity War and its untitled sequel. So what's going on here? Was he just speaking based on assumptions before, without any confirmation? Could he simply be trolling Collider now? Filming began in January, and is expected to continue for most of this year, so there's certainly still time for Jackson - who hasn't appeared in a Marvel film since 2014's Captain America: The Winter Soldier - to join the production.

But if it's true that he really hasn't heard from Marvel about it yet, then maybe it's time for Nick Fury fans to start worrying. Avengers: Infinity War is scheduled to come out May 4, 2018.
