It looks like we're finally going to see eternal BAMF Samuel L. Jackson return to the MCU. Some rumors popped up over the weekend that suggested the forthcoming Captain Marvel movie could feature one Nicholas J. Fury and as luck would have it these rumors have since been confirmed by Deadline Hollywood.
Captain Marvel is a reunion of sorts for Brie Larson and Samuel L. Jackson as they also starred in Kong: Skull Island with fellow MCU alums Tom Hiddleston and John C. Reilly. Of course, there's always a chance the reunion technically happens in Avengers: Infinity War as Jackson, Larson and Hiddleston are all rumored to appear.
The MCU's first female superhero film will be directed by Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck (Half Nelson), based on a script by Nicole Perlman (GOTG) & Meg LeFauve (Inside Out). Captain Marvel hits theaters on March 8, 2019.
