Jackson Confirms Nick Fury Cameos for Thor, Captain America Movies

While we know that Samuel L. Jackson has negotiated himself a good deal with a number of cameos for various Marvel Studios properties, it wasn't a hundred percent confirmed that we'd see him in either Thor or Captain America. Fans know that the history of Nick Fury is one that does take him back quite a few decades and we saw hints of that in Iron Man 2 as well that they'll be including it in some form. On Jimmy Fallon Live last night, Jackson confirmed that he's in for a pair of one-day shoots for both Thor and Captain America as Nick Fury, though he doesn't know if they're the end-sequence cameos that fans have come to squee over with the previous movies or something a bit more involved. Of note, he talks about how he's also starting to audition with a number of actresses who will play "his sidekick" in the Avengers film which is causing plenty of speculation that it'll be The Wasp in some form, though in the comics Fury has had a lot of operatives over the years that he's worked with as well.

Update: Once Jackson spoke, the shortlist of names that have come up for the actresses for the undisclosed role has appeared with The Hollywood Reporter leading the charge. In an effort to combat the "sausage party" as Rob Worley once termed it, Morena Baccarin,  Jessica Lucas, Cobie Smulders and Mary Elizabeth Winstead are all being bandied about.

Check the video below for the main man himself speaking about it all.

 What about Maria Hill?  I would have thought about her first not the Wasp.

 The Wasp or Maria Hill?  Maybe Bobbi Morse?

I think its Maria Hill

I'd imagine it's one of the two.  "Sidekick" makes me think Maria Hill but Wasp is a more interesting inclusion.

I'd be curious to see how they handle his appearance in Captain America, especially if it's during WWII.  The Army wasn't integrated until 1948, so will he be an enlisted man serving as a truck driver?  A Buffalo Soldier from the 92nd ID?  A Navy cook?  An unwitting lab rat who survives the Super Soldier Serum test trials?  Anything else will be cheesy...

Morena Baccarin's current look on "V" would work well for Maria Hill.

So, Jackson cameos in everybody else's movies.  But is Nick Fury slateed to get his own film?  Always a bridesmaid, never a bride?

 Maria Hill is definitely the better fit as a "sidekick" to Fury.

Maria Hill is the one that makes the most sense and after her it would've probably have been Black Widow so I'm guessing Hill all the way.

Capt.America from some accounts has book ends in the present so Nick Fury's appearance doesn't have to be during WW2. I think if they want to establish Fury's origin stemming from way back they'll do it in his own or a SHIELD film which is been rumored. Going the Ultimate route where Fury was one of the guinea pigs
