Neal McDonagh Says Dum Dum Dugan Will Be In The Nick Fury Movie

And that CAPTAIN AMERICA 2 shoots later this year.

Other sites are running with 'Captain America 2 shooting later this year' as the story, but to me what's much more interesting is Neal McDonagh talking about reprising his role of Dum Dum Dugan in a Nick Fury solo film. One that the actor seems to think will be set in the 70s. Here's what he told the IMDB blog (I didn't know IMDB had a blog):

t’ll be me and Sam Jackson. 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.

So the 70s thing is more wishful thinking from McDonagh, but I'm all for it. I imagine that they could update Fury's origin from WWII to Vietnam and give him the Inifinity Formula, which slows his aging in the comics, in the 1960s. 

McDonagh doesn't really know when a Nick Fury solo film is shooting, but he hopes after Cap 2. Of course he really doesn't know what films are being shot when - his contract has him locked in for a certain number of movies, and he'll pretty much show up when he's told. But certainly someone at Marvel is talking up a Nick Fury movie.
