Because Marvel Studios refuses take a breather from churning out super hero movies, production on Captain America 2 will begin later this year, which will be followed by a Nick Fury/SHIELD movie. This news comes from Neal McDonough, who played Cap’s bowler-hatted, mighty-mustachioed comrade Dum Dum Dugan in last year’s Captain America: The First Avenger.
In a recent interview with IMDB Television Blog about his role on Season 3 of Justified, McDonough revealed a few details about his future with Marvel. Here’s what he had to say:
Q: I understand you’re going to reprise your CAPTAIN AMERICA role.
McDonough: Yeah, they’re planning (to go into production for) for the end of this year, because Marvel does one film at a time. 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.
Q: Why is that?
McDonough: Because it’ll be me and Sam Jackson. 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.
Q: It sounds like you were a fan of the comic beforehand.
McDonough: Absolutely. I’m very well aware of the Marvel universe, and to be part of it is such a blessing. To go back to London and shoot there for four months, that was just a great year.
Captain America: The First Avenger was an alright comic-book movie. It offered adequate patriotic fanfare and what not. Here’s hoping the sequel will be much better executed. Now, do we REALLY need a Nick Fury movie? Well, WILL it be a Nick Fury movie? Or just 90 minutes of Sam Jackson being all Sam Jacksony?
