According to Comic Book Resources on April 7, Samuel L. Jackson, who played Nick Fury in "Captain America: The Winter Soldier", revealed he was on the set of "Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D." Jackson, who had been on the ABC TV show before scolding Clark Gregg, who portrays Agent Phil Coulson, will be returning for the season finale. He did express vehemently how very tight-lipped he was about any additional details beyond just being on the show again.
"I did! Last week! I just shot the end-of-the-season show. You're trying to get me fired and killed! I don't talk about Marvel's business. None of us do. ... If they ask Kevin Feige and Kevin says, 'We'd like for you to do it,' I do".
This is likely a good strategic play by Marvel Studios to get Fury back on the show considering the recent events had had occurred with Hydra's attempt at overthrowing S.H.I.E.L.D. The director of the organization went off the grid once it was compromised which is explanatory of the inability for Coulson to get a hold of him as of late. That being said, the April 1 episode left audiences in a serious cliffhanger as "the bus", piloted by Agent Melinda May, as played by Ming-Na Wen, altered course when they were on their way to Triskelion to meetup with Director Fury.
The opening day of "Captain America: The Winter Soldier" has come and gone with tomorrow's episode of ABC's "Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D." tying into the film. The cliff hanger moves forward on Tuesday, April 8 at 8 p.m. EST.
