Samuel L. Jackson confirmed the news, who will reprise his role as Nick Fury in the upcoming sequel of 2012’s “The Avengers”.

Jackson says:

“I don’t think we begin shooting before March of next year,”.

“I know we’re shooting in London, that James Spader is Ultron and going to be the bad guy, and that we added Ms. [Elizabeth] Olsen, but I don’t know what she’s doing, if she’s on the inside or the outside. I haven’t seen a script.”

Jackson wasn’t able to confirm which character Olsen will be taking on.

Robert Downey Jr., Chris Evans, Mark Ruffalo, Chris Hemsworth, Scarlett Johansson and Jeremy Renner are all back to reprise their respective roles.
