With Samuel L. Jackson’s last appearance in the Marvel Cinematic Universe as ex-S.H.I.E.L.D. director Nick Fury being ‘Avengers: Age of Ultron’, and not showing up in Ant-Man and having only two more films left in his contract with Marvel, it is rumored that he will next appear in ‘Thor: Ragnarok’ which is already filming in Australia.
Currently Jackson is filming Kong: Skull Island with Marvel co-star Tom Hiddleston (Loki). Also reprising their roles in the film are Chris Hemsworth (Thor) and Mark Ruffalo (Bruce Banner aka The Hulk). When last in the MCU Jackson consoled Scarlett Johansson’s Black Widow who was in a relationship with Ruffalo’s Banner who had just disappeared in the Avengers’ Quinjet.
‘Thor: Ragnarok’ is rumored to be a ‘buddy’ film starring Thor and The Hulk possibly on planet Sakaar – the battle world which Hulk was banished to by the Illuminati. Even though Thor never appeared in the ‘Planet Hulk’ story line. Will Jackson appear after the twosome return to Earth perhaps?
