UPDATE: Nicky Fury will be in Thor and Captain America, getting female sidekick for Avengers
Just to make sure you get your yearly dose of Samuel L. Jackson, the actor revealed on Jimmy Fallon that he will in fact be making in appearance in CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE FIRST AVENGER, in addition to his previously announced role in THOR.
"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."
Will we get to see him actually kick ass, or will he just stand around looking menacing with his eyepatch? No word on that.
Jackson also mentions that he's recently screen tested a bunch of actresses for a role in THE AVENGERS.
"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."
It's unclear if this is just an extraneous eye candy character, or if it's someone more significant like Wasp, a role linked to actresses Demi Lovato and Eva Longoria. Or will the Avengers remain a no girls allowed club?
UPDATE: Now we have a list of actresses testing for this part via Heat Vision.
- Jessica Lucas
- Cobie Smuthers
- Mary Elizabeth Winstead

Man, I miss Inara Serra.
