Nick Fury Not In Avengers 4 Or Infinity Wars

Samuel L Jackson will not be a part of Avengers 3 or Avengers 4, reported Yahoo Movies. The actor plays Nick Fury in the superhero franchise. He was last seen in a small role in Avengers: The Age Of Ultron, and his character, Fury, is said to be in hiding.
“I wasn’t in the ‘superhero argument’ movie [‘Captain America: Civil War’], I’m not in ‘Avengers 3 and 4’. They’re shooting them now, and they haven’t called me yet,” Jackson said.
Jackson is also upset at not being asked to be part of Black Panther. The Chadwick Boseman film is Marvel’s first Black superhero to make the transition to the silver screen, and has several leading actors of African origin.
Jackson said:
“They wouldn’t let me go to ‘Black Panther’-ville, so it’s kinda like how you gonna make a black Marvel movie and not let Nick Fury show up in it?!”
His next appearance as Nick Fury will be in Captain Marvel. The film is slated to release in 2019.

In Memoriam: Remembering Those We Lost in 2020

MK Arjunan, the Malayalam music composer fondly known as Arjunan Master, died in April at 84.   Arjunan Master made his debut in playback music composing through Karuthapournami (1968) and created his best work in the 1970s, when he composed numerous soulful melodies that have outlived the films they were featured in.   When he won the Kerala State Film Award for music composition for Bhayanakam in 2018, many expressed disbelief that it was Master’s first state award in his career that spans five decades.

Da 5 Bloods Review: Spike Lee Operating At Near-Peak Levels

And the very first flashback sequence give us two artistic choices that make Lee’s modus operandi clear — first, we see a chopper cutting across the orange Vietnam sky from a distance towards the centre of the screen, a callback to that shot from Apocalypse Now (fittingly, just minutes ago, we saw the Bloods exiting Ho Chi Minh City’s famous Apocalypse Now club).
