Watch Samuel L. Jackson Make His Captain America Cameo

Watch Samuel L. Jackson Make His Captain America Cameo

Apparently he's not tired of those mother-f#©king superheros in the mother-f#©king Marvel Universe.

Samuel L. Jackson's Nick Fury has been the common thread connecting Marvel's various superhero movies over the past few years. For a while, though, it was being reported that Mr. Jackson wouldn't be appearing in Captain America; Jackson himself went on Jimmy Fallon back in February and revealed that this was a lie being spread by traitorous rumor-mongers. Now, video and photos have appeared on the Web of Jackson shooting his cameo, thereby providing a couple of spoilers about the film's ending/epilogue.

The scene takes place in a modern day New York City, right in the middle of Times Square. This means that a) the entire movie doesn't take place during World War 2 and b) audiences will get to see Steve Rogers after he's unfrozen. Presumably, this will take place as a kind of post-credits cameo, but Screen Rant has an interesting theory that also seems reasonable:

What an awkward and noisy place to shoot, being surrounded by people in Times Square. Seems like more of a marketing stint than smart shooting location. Note the Acura vehicles surrounding the set -- It's Acura sponsoring the franchise, providing all of the SHIELD rides and sponsoring the viral marketing campaign.

There's another video of the same scene from a different angle, as well as some nice high-resolution photos of Chris Evans running down the street in an S.S.R. shirt ("Strategic Scientific Reserve" was the group responsible for the experiment that gave Steve Rogers his powers).

Well that Ain't no Fuckin' Ballpark I'll tell you that.

Odd that it isn't more closed off. I would have to go with the theory to be honest. Even though it seems like a waste of time/money to be done by Acura sponsorship. We'll see how this further unfolds.

John Shaft is back ! MotherF#&%er !!!

Is that an Acura? Now I've always wanted to drive an Acura. Might I have a drive in your nice looking car? mmmm Hmmmm that is a nice driving car!

Well with regards to the noisy location to shoot, I was under the impression that a lot of dialogue that isn't shot on a sound stage is replaced with ADR anyways.

So we'll be seeing Cap in modern times? Fair play. Excited about this film, should be good

Who's that sexy man? [background]it's Sh.. I hate the mofo ninjas on the mofo forum.

Looking forward to this film, should be one hell of a movie.

Now this seems a tad strange, I'm betting it's an ad or maybe those short clips which acts as an epilogue like the one's from Tron:Legacy.

Most likely towards the end of the movie when he's brought into the Avengers.

Although I guessed Sam Jackson would be in this movie, I wish I hadn't seen this on the front page. I've been avoiding any spoilers/general information about this movie.

I remember a time when all secret government vehicles seemed to be built by GM.

Spoilers, muthaf*****.

Oh wait, that was entirely expected and I didn't care about captain america anyway.
(Isn't he supposed to be dead?)

Sound designers will mute the backround noise down. The crowded park is probably what they wanted, it gives them backround foley without having to prerecord, they just have to seperate it into layers and control the levels.

If you've got the patience and money for editing, you can film on location anywhere. Admittedly this is probably half publicity stunt too, but if Acura is forking over huge amounts of cash to the production for it, there's really no harm to production.

that was all I needed to read xD

the highway car chase from the Matrix Reloaded...one of the best scenes ever. brought to you by GM lol

Hey hye Samuel Jackson publicity stunts are A-OKAY with me :P
I just wanna see him smack talking couple of heroes together in the Avengers :D

Doesn't matter if he is tired or not. Hes got a contract with Marvel for like, 11 movies.

Danceofmasks:
Spoilers, muthaf*****.

In the comics?

No, that was just for a little while, he is back now :P

Ain't even the same fuckin' sport.

Awesome, although I was lookin' forward to a cameo in WWII that's pre-eyepatch and Infinity Forumula that would've made Fury more mysterious.

However in my wildest dreams I would've loved to see the ballyhooed scene from The Ultimates where Cap finally wakes up from suspended animation and is greeted by Fury, who introduces himself as a General to Cap.

Cap then jabs Fury in the nose him in the nose and screams, "Nice try, Fritz, but the highest-ranking black man in the U.S. Army is a Brooklyn-born captain I grew up with!"

But I know Hollywood would never have the balls to do that.

I wouldn't be surprised if this was actually for "The Avengers" and not "Captain America" specifically.

Is he going to be the scientist who gets shot?

Istvan:
Is he going to be the scientist who gets shot?

they can try... but the bullets would just bounce off!

Movies film in a city all the time. They just do the actions there than cut out all the sound and do voice overs later. In fact, I'm pretty sure most scenes in most movies are done that way.

I wouldn't be surprised if they did. It pretty much summarizes Cap's lack of adjustment to the future, and movies have done worse.

Doesn't really surprise me, considering that this is one of the Marvel superhero movies that builds up to 'The Avengers', and that Nick Fury plays a prominent role in the initiative.

Surprised that such a scene was shot in such a public location though.

"Are they acting?"

Nope. They are going over the fight scene between Neo and Agent Smith and play the other Agent Smiths as they stare blankly...into space.
