In an interview with MTV Samuel L. Jackson revealed that he has yet to hear anything about his involvement in Thor, even though his name is down on the cast list.
“Nobody’s told me anything,” Jackson laughed when asked about the “Thor” role. “I was reading the trades last week and I saw the cast list. My name was in it, so maybe I am doing something that I don’t know about and I’ll hear about it soon.”
Even so, he said he’s confident that Fury can fit into the world established by Branagh’s “Thor.”
“It all depends on where they find him,” he said. “If they’re dealing with that particular timeline… Hey, they’re shooting it in Santa Fe, it’s not like they’re shooting it in Norway.”
Thor has only just started filming and it will continue for a few more months, so Jackson will probably be contacted when the time comes. If the appearance of Nick Fury will be anything like that in Iron Man Jackson may only be needed for an end of credits/final scene, so they’ll probably be filming that towards the end of production.
