Marvel Movie Update: New Info & Images on Cap, Avengers & Nick Fury

A tall order of Marvel movie update.

 He'll be back, and back again.

Samuel L. Jackson’s Nick Fury will, in fact, be cameoing the THOR and CAPTAIN AMERICA movies. He said so, plainly, on a recent episode of LATE NIGHT WITH JIMMY FALLON, saying the shoots for each movie will be a day a piece. I’m sure his appearances will just consist of him showing up when all the smoke clears and saying something cool about how S.H.I.E.L.D.’s interested in involving these respective heroes in their Avengers initiative - - gluing these movies together, as it were. Knowing this, I get the sense that Dum Dum Dugan will effectively be taking over Fury’s role as the Howlin’ Commandos’ leader in World War II, while Fury himself will probably only show up to look over a long-frozen Cap. Though, his talks of working with Howard Stark in IRON MAN 2 suggest he might still have some infinity formula running through his veins and keeping him young.

The next secret Jackson revealed is that he’ll be screen-testing with a handful of actress this week for part he describes simply as “Nick Fury’s sidekick.”  THR has found out that the lovely ladies vying for the part are Cobie SmuldersJessica LucasMary Elizabeth Winstead and Whedon-verse alumna, Morena Baccarin.  Have a look at them below, from left to right... == TEASER ==


I kind-of figured that Black Widow or Agent Phil Coulson had served in that sidekick role already, but this opens up some possibilities. Could it be Maria Hill? Or a re-tooled Janet Van Dyne getting groomed for active superheroic duty in a way similar to her Ultimate counterpart? I might’ve suggested Sharon Carter, but that couldn’t really be reconciled with this casting call, as I’m still pretty convinced that Hayley Atwell will be playing the character eventually (following the comics tradition of Sharon being the spitting image of her aunt Peggy.) Whoever lands the role will also get a nine-picture option.

Speaking of her, there’s a good look at her in action in these pics from the CAP movie that’ve popped up on Coming Soon. Have a gander, maybe?

I'm sooo Exicted!

That Janet idea sounds amazing! Introducing Maria would be pointless as we already have Natasha. It could be Bobbi Morse, but then again Bobbi's brunette. It might be Maria after all since they might be saving Janet for Ant-Man. But Morena for any of those parts :)

his costume looks worse and worse to me every time i see it....

Posted by Ahmed Sherif

I think it would be better to put Maria Hill, but putting Janet could help in showing the whole Avengers that everyone wish to see.

Great news

Edited by BiteMe-Fanboy

I can't wait.
I just have two fears.
1.They put to much comedy in it. (Like they did in Iron Man 2)
2. The making Cap a member of USO and making him a troop entertainer.
 
Please dont let us down, Joe.

Still fearing for the Cap movie at this point. But at least Thor looks promising, and there is DKR on the horizon so...

Posted by Emperor Gonzo Noir

I'd think it was Maria Hill

Posted by KingLoki

Captain America is going to be great, can't wait for the teaser this Sunday.

It's so sad that I agree! 
 
A female Nick Fury sidekick?!?! Awesome! Maybe it's Carol Danvers... Although they are just looking at brunets and Carol is blonde.  
There's also the possibility for it to be Jessica Drew!

Yeah, but Chris Evans is looking better each time I see him (but he's still not a patch on Beardy Thor ;) 
 
As a bottle-blonde I have a sneaky feeling that their natural hair colour might not be a factor in the casting ;)  But Carol Danvers would be sooooo cool!

Oh man, I had Hayley Atwell mixed up with Kayla Ewell. Kayla would've been a hotter choice though. 
 
Those actress choices are all really good. 
 
I thought Sam Jackson was already casted for Captain America as a regular cast member like in Iron Man 2...

girl from scott pilgrim as maria hill...

Posted by Bestostero

I'm thinking Maria Hill, anyways awesome news

Posted by Duncan

I still want to see a pic from red skull.

Posted by six-duck

For me it's the helmet that throws the costume off.

Posted by CellphoneGirl

I like the Janet idea.

Posted by HT101

I think all of the choices would be awesome but Colbie Smulders would be my number one choice.  Both of these movies look great and I can't wait to see them this summer.

Edited by ArtisticNeedham
  I like Cap's costume, I think it is acceptable.  It looks like something designed for protection by the army, not as sleek as it will look in modern times once he is unfrozen.
 

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

I think any of those actresses would be great, I can't wait to see who one of them will end up playing.  I hope its Wasp.  I like the idea of a Retooled Janet Van Dyne, she MUST be part of the Avengers movie, and maybe having her be a socialite who wants adventure wouldn't work too well.  And maybe they are setting her up for a part in Ant Man (he is being turned into a spy instead of an adventurer super vigilante) and the Avengers. 
Janet

Im going with Maria Hill or wasp. Hopefully these girls are not up for Ms.marvel.

Posted by Crackdown

Why does it say its coming out the 25th? Its supposed to come out on the 22nd! unless they mean in trghe UK.
 
 
Friggin BETTER come out on the 22nd. That's my 24th Birthday!!!!!!!

Posted by tobiasPUNK

why is everyone bitching about his costume? how would you portray a captain america costume in a film? at least it's not tights with underpants over the top. people need to get over that fact, there's a reason that comic book movies never live up to the actual book...because it's based on a BOOK!

Posted by Om1kron

Captain America : Hey whats up guys, just took a cup of steroids, here at the gunfight with mah shield. going to throw this shit around and hurt people for justice.  
 
Guys with guns *shrugs*

This isn't so much a PREDICTION for me as it is a plea... 
Morena Baccarin as Maria Hill. 
MAKE IT HAPPEN!  GO GO GO GO GO

Morena Baccarin is so hot, I hope I get to meet her at a con so I can be all nerd creeper and talk to her about how we should go on a long walk on the san diego beaches together and maybe even take her out to a nice dinner at hot dog on a stick.  Then she would ask me stuff like long hair or short hair, I shall pretend to be crossed given such a challenge. But obviously short hair, I watched the first episode of V and nearly cheated on my girlfriend with the television set on pause. (TMI) 
  
Nerds everywhere shall envy me.

The outfit looks sick as hell! But the mask looks kind of lame, they should remove the wings

I think they're going for a more "Ultimate Captain America" look overall.
Posted by SuperXAsh

Costume looks ok, just wish more aspects of it'd look a little more... period appropriate. Though if Howard Stark's involved, that might explain it.
 
Chris Evans has really impressed me though with how he's managed to change into the character... at least appearance wise. 
 
From the way that the Hydra soldiers are looking, it's almost like they're making it more Wolfenstein-ish. XD Maybe the Cosmic Cube has something to do with it??

@SuperXAsh: Stark did help design the suit.

*ugh*  The set shown off in that one Cap pic is terrible.  You can TELL that Joe Johnston is making the movie.  REALLY hoping it turns out alright, but I've got my everlasting doubts.

Morena Baccarin or Mary Elizabeth Winstead!? They're both so awesome! Either one is perfect for any role ever. 
 
If Cobie Smulders beats either of them, I'll burn down Marvel Studios.

I think the Cap costume from the movie looks awesome. It wouldn't make sense for him to have little wings on the side of his head. It wouldn't fit the tone of the movie. But he couldn't NOT have the mask, or people would be way too upset about it. I can't wait to see the movie.

CAPTAIN AMERICA LOOKS AMAZING! ITS LIKE A HYBRID COMBO OF ORIGINAL AND ULTIMATE!!!

Posted by Ban_Dark

never accepted Samuel Jackson as Fury!!..i think Bruce Willis will fit the role much better.

@Evpraksiya:  I'm gonna wait to see it in action...but I'm worried.
