It has been suggested that the Nick Fury movie spinoff is set to begin production once Marvel have finished with Thor 2 and Captain America 2. Neal McDonough, who has appeared as Dum Dum Dugan in Captain America, has admitted that he hopes that Marvel do make Nick Fury as soon as possible, as he is very much looking forward to making the film.
McDonough explained, “Yeah, they’re planning Captain America 2 for the end of this year. So they’re going to do Thor 2 and as soon as Thor has wrapped, they’ll do Cap 2. Hopefully right after that, we’ll jump into Nick Fury because that’s the one I’m looking forward to more than anything because it’ll be me and Sam Jackson. In the real Marvel universe, Dum Dum Dugan is Nick Fury’s right hand man.”
He added, “I just pray that they have a 1970s setting, because I want to see Sam Jackson with lambchops kicking people’s asses for Marvel universe. It would just be awesome. And to work with Sam would be a treat. We’ve become friendly over the years.” Next to hit the big screen for Marvel is the much anticipated movie The Avengers, which is released in the UK on April 27 and in the US on May 4.
