The Reason Nick Fury Wasn’t in “Civil War”

Were you wondering why Samuel L. Jackson’s Nick Fury, the character who was the lynch pin for the entire MCU, wasn’t in Captain America: Civil War? The LA Times wondered as well, so they asked the film’s screenwriters  Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely where he was, and Markus had this to say:

We called him, but he let the line blink. Primarily it felt like one too many possible opinions. We didn’t want him to take one side or the other, because that’s not his place in the universe. And then we didn’t want another, “Is he still with the government? Is he opposed to the government but supporting the government?” It got to be the potential for a lot more polemic discussion that the movie did not have room for.

He’s the guy who put it together. He’s been the sort of parent figure to the Avengers. Let the parent go away, and see if the kids can handle this. See if the kids can be who they’re supposed to be without that governing voice. Um… and they didn’t do that good of a job. “

When asked if Fury will appear in the Avengers: Infinity War films, McFreely said:

“I would think. Don’t you assume you’ll see everybody in the Infinity Wars?

We’ll find out for sure when Avengers: Infinity War Part I opens May 4, 2018.
