Captain America 2 Films This Year, Followed By a Nick Fury Movie?

Marvel is aiming to begin production on the sequel to Captain America: The First Avenger by the end of the year, possibly followed by the long-discussed Nick Fury movie. But not just any Nick Fury movie — one that could be set in the 1970s.

The news comes courtesy of Neal McDonough, who repeats that he’ll reprise his role as Dum Dum Dugan while also confirming to that Thor 2 will start filming this summer.

“Yeah, they’re planning (to go into production for) Captain America 2 for the end of this year, because Marvel does one film at a time,” he tells the website. “So they’re going to do Thor 2, and as soon as Thor has wrapped, they’ll do Cap 2. Hopefully right after that, we’ll jump into Nick Fury because that’s the one I’m looking forward to more than anything.”

And, really, who isn’t looking forward to a Nick Fury/S.H.I.E.L.D. movie which, in addition to Samuel L. Jackson and McDonough, would presumably star Clark Gregg and Cobie Smulders. But McDonough has his own reasons.

“Because it’ll be me and Sam Jackson,” he says. “In the real Marvel universe, Dum Dum Dugan is Nick Fury’s right hand man. … And I just pray that they have a 1970s setting, because I want to see Sam Jackson with lambchops kicking people’s asses for Marvel universe. It would just be awesome. And to work with Sam would be a treat. We’ve become friendly over the years.”

Before that, though, we’ll see Jackson as Fury in The Avengers, which opens May 4.

    I’m glad that Marvel is trying to do such quality works in their movies.  I hope that in all of the other movies that we’ll see small little character moments from other Avengers.  I would love to see Hawkeye showing up in the next Cap movie, not necessarily to move the plot along, but to see them working out together like what happens so frequently in the comics.

    It would have been nice if they’d left room to do another Cap movie that takes place during WW2. There is so much potential there. Who doesn’t want to see heroes beating up not just Nazis, but Super-Nazis?!

    They did leave room.  Why do you think they did all those montages showing time passing?

    They did leave room. That montage sequence after Cap saves and recruits the Howling Commandos that took an unspecified amount of time. That part of the movie left the door open to numerous adventures to be fleshed out.

    and the sub-par video game.

    Either way, I would like for more Dum Dum Dugan regardless of the era.

    I want a 70’s Nick Fury movie because it would help cement that this guy is old as hell. In his prime for over forty years? That’s superhuman.

  • Jacob

    It took four years. 1941-1945.

    “Lambchops” is a sock puppet. Oversized side whiskers are called “muttonchops.”

  • A guy

    Hmmm, I was kinda hoping they’d do more unused characters.

  • Kevin Melrose

    Maybe he’s looking forward to witnessing Jackson’s legendary puppetry skills.

  • Jacob

    They are. He’s… not exactly an insider. It’s unfeasible to only do one film at a time. After all, they released Thor and Cap back-to-back. Those were made parallel to each other. I figure they’ll make Cap 2 and maybe Dr. Strange at the same time (since that seems to be the one with the most momentum right now).

    When are they going to make time for the Black Panther movie?
