Nick Fury Will Be In Thor And Captain America, And Has A Female Avengers Sidekick
Talking to Jimmy Fallon-- who basically got the kind of scoop we movie bloggers dream of constantly-- Jackson said he has yet to film his scenes for Thor and Captain America, and he has no idea if they'll be part of the film or after the credits, but that he'll appear in both films. He also dropped a little bit of information about The Avengers, namely that he'll have a female sidekick in the film. He'll be screen-testing alongside five contenders for the role this week, and describes the part as "a new character that's with me all the time." The "new character" bit suggests it's not Wasp, the female superhero frequently rumored to be part of the film.
So who will the character be? Will she have powers or just be kind of an overblown secretary? Speculate away in the comments.
