Samuel L Jackson Wants to Know Why Nick Fury Wasn’t in ‘Black Panther’ (Video)

“I mean, Nick Fury knows every black thing that’s on the planet, so he’s gotta know about Wakanda,” the Marvel Cinematic Universe star says

Samuel L. Jackson feels that “Wakanda forever” spirit — even though he wasn’t invited to join in the fun in “Black Panther.”

The actor, who plays Nick Fury in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, made a brief appearance in “Avengers: Infinity War” but was unfortunately not asked to join the cast of the Chadwick Boseman-led superhero flick that came before it.

“It’s a great movie,” Ellen DeGeneres said to Jackson when he stopped by her show Wednesday, “but I couldn’t believe that you weren’t in it!”

“I couldn’t either,” he said. “When they were making it, I kept saying, ‘So when do I go to Wakanda?’ And they were [shakes head].”

Jackson said he even suggested to the producers, “Can I just walk down the street in Wakanda so they know that I know it’s there? Because I know it’s there. I mean, Nick Fury knows every black thing that’s on the planet, so he’s gotta know about Wakanda.”

And while he’s made his peace with it… “I wish I had been there, but I’m really, really, really pleased with the success of that film and how it worked out and eventually I may end up in Wakanda,” he said.

Fingers crossed for the sequel!
