Samuel L. Jackson Says That Nick Fury and Black Panther Will Eventually Meet in the MCU
The next time we see Samuel L. Jackson in the role of Nick Fury will be in Captain Marvel when he will be playing a young 90s version of the character. Regardless of what happened to him in Avengers: Infinity War, there's a good chance that he'll be back along with Black Panther, and when they do come back, Jackson says that there's going to be a time where the characters finally meet.
While talking to Entertainment Tonight, Jackson explained that he went to Marvel Studios and suggested to them that Fury should make an appearance in Black Panther. He recalls:
"It was just like, 'Ehh, nah. We're good. Nick Fury and Black Panther will meet somewhere. But not there.'"
So, we have no idea when or where the two characters will meet, but it's something that Marvel is looking to do somewhere down the road. I imagine it will be one of the future Avengers films that Marvel is said to be looking to do at some point after Avengers 4.
Even though Jackson was promised Fury and Black Panther would eventually cross paths, he still wishes that he would have been able to be in Black Panther. When asked why his character didn't show up in the film, he said:
"I can't answer that! I'm wondering. He should've been there. He should have been somewhere -- maybe in that casino in Korea when all of that stuff jumped off."
Jackson goes on to say that just because he and Black Panther haven't crossed paths yet, it doesn't mean that Fury doesn't know about him:
"Just so you could say, 'Oh, Nick Fury is out in the world looking for whatever the evil in the world is.' He's just there and is kind of like, 'Oh, yeah, that's that Black Panther dude.' 'Cause there's no way in the world he doesn't know where Wakanda is or what vibranium is or any of that,because he's Nick Fury."
