Jackson Reveals ‘Nick Fury’ Sidekick Info: It’s A Lady!
Samuel L. Jackson, who appeared as Nick Fury in 'Iron Man' (post credits) and 'Iron Man 2', is finally getting his own shot at the spotlight in 'The Avengers', but he'll be sharing it with a hot brunette sidekick. Samuel L. Jackson, who appeared as Nick Fury after the credits of Iron Man, and somewhere in the murky, sequel-y depths of Iron Man 2, is finally getting his own shot at the spotlight in The Avengers, but he'll be sharing it with a hot brunette sidekick. Jackson told Jimmy Fallon last night, “I gotta screen test like five actresses on Friday. They have this new character that’s my sidekick or something, that’s with me all the time.” So far we know that several actresses, from Scott Pilgrim's Mary Elizabeth Winstead to Cobie Smulders from "How I Met Your Mother" are being considered for the role, along with several other equally beautiful but less noteworthy brunettes. The Avengers begins filming in April, with an intended release date of May 4, 2012. (The Playlist)
