Samuel L. Jackson Confirms He’ll Be in THOR and CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE FIRST AVENGER; Says Nick Fury Will Have a New Female Sidekick

At the end of last year, we reported that Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson) would not be making a cameo in Kenneth Branagh’s Thor. However, that no longer appears to be the case. Last night on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, Jackson confirmed that he had recently shot a scene not only for Thor, but for Captain America: The First Avenger. Here’s what Jackson told Fallon:
In the next month or so, I have to do one day on Thor, and I gotta do another day on Captain America, and in April we start The Avengers — the big deal with everybody. Thor and Captain America are pretty much done, but I haven’t done my part in them yet. I’m just connective tissue for them to join The Avengers.
Jackson also said he didn’t know if he would be appearing after the credits like he did in Iron Man. Hit the jump for what Jackson had to say regarding Nick Fury’s new female sidekick.

The first set photos from the big screen adaptation of Jack Kerouac’s seminal novel On the Road were published last November, and new images from the Walter Salles directed movie have finally been released. The images show Salles’ choice of muted colors to depict the Sixties aesthetics and the smoky, hazy Beatnik ambience in which On the Road’s heroes, Sal and Dean, evolve. Actors Kristen Stewart, Sam Riley and Garrett Hedlund look über-cool enough to play the lead roles of the Beat Generation’s most famous protagonists. Hit the jump for the synopsis and images:
