‘Avengers: Age of Ultron’ Will Be Light on Nick Fury

With so many heroes assembling for The Avengers: Age of Ultron, there’s at least one Marvel Cinematic Universe staple who will get lost in the shuffle: Nick Fury.

The eye patch-wearing spy will have a decreased role in director Joss Whedon’s Avengers sequel, according to a source no less reliable than Samuel L. Jackson himself.

“I’m just kind of passing by there, you know. I’m not doing so much,” he told Yahoo. “It’s another one of those ‘people who have powers fighting people who have powers.’ That’s why I didn’t get to New York in The Avengers. There’s not a lot I could do except shoot a gun.”

For fans in need of a Fury fix, the character has a significant amount of action and intrigue in April’s Captain America: The Winter Soldier. But it sounds like we’ll have to wait for another Captain America movie before we get our next big dose of the S.H.I.E.L.D. director.

The Avengers: Age of Ultron arrives on May 1, 2015.

    So no War Machine, no Falcon, and very little Nick Fury? Adding in Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch? A little monochrome don’t you think?

    War Machine is in it and Falcon’s actor could get a last minute call to come to the set and film.

    It’s fine, we’ve got the Bettany as the Vision and Cheadle seems to be part of it (according to IMDB) so War Machine will be in the mix (leading me to believe that Iron Man will probably play a diminished role, just Stark dealing with his ‘creation’). We’ve got more than enough characters in the mix so some will have to play a supporting role (as I suspect it’ll be focused on Hawkeye’s redemption through the ‘twin miracles’). Besides, I hate the idea of ‘diversity’ for diversity’s sake.
