Did Samuel L. Jackson Confirm Red Skull’s Return To The MCU?

Samuel L. Jackson, the actor behind Nick Fury, was on Hot 97 to discuss racism, Kong: Skull Island, and Donald Trump. However, at the end of the interview, he was asked about Fury’s potential cameo in Black Panther. After denying his involvement in that project, Jackson then let a possible spoiler for Infinity War slip.

“You didn’t see me in Civil War. I’m still out there trying to figure out what The Skull is going to…”

Although the conversation derailed after that so he wasn’t able to complete his sentence, it sure sounds like Fury has been hunting the Red Skull after Avengers: Age of Ultron.

If you’re interested in hearing it from the actor himself, skip to about 34:00 in the video below.
