Captain America 2? Thor 2? And a Nick Fury film too?

Rumour has it that a sequel to last year’s Captain America film is set to go into production later this year.

And the comic book movie adaptation news doesn’t end there either with the added news that Thor 2 is also set to shoot this year as well as a Nick Fury film starring Samuel L Jackson.

The Nick Fury film sounds particularly interesting as it’s rumoured that the film is to be set in the 70’s. This isn’t confirmed and may just be pie in the sky talk, but the thought of a Shaft-esque Nick Fury with sideburnsand flares, pimp-slapping baddies is a delightful (if mildly perplexing) thought.

Speaking recently, Neal McDonough, who played Dum Dum Dugan in the first Captain America film said of the muted Nick Fury film, “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.”

With The Avengers film due out this April, The Dark Knight Rises and the Amazing Spider-Man reboot both due this July, 2012 is looking like a great year for comic book nerds the world over. Happy times.
