Neal McDonough Talks Captain America Sequel And Potential Nick Fury Movie!
Confidently dotting on previously-considered directions for the Captain America: The First Avenger sequel, make the jump for a chat with 'Dum Dum Dugan' actor Neal McDonough
Recently chatting with I Am Rogue, the actor behind 'Dum Dum Dugan' of Marvel and Joe Johnston's Captain America: The First Avenger movie, Neal McDonough, confidently discussed a previously-stated direction for the sequel. Peaking IAR's interest by stating, "It was a blast to play him and I still look forward to Cap 2, Nick Fury or any other films in the future," the site got the actor to talk more about the potential Nick Fury movie, as well whether he was considered to appear in The Avengers.
On how 'Dum Dum Dugan' could end up in near-present day in a Nick Fury movie...
"In the origin with Dum Dum, he got a small portion of the super serum himself and he was actually the head of S.H.E.I.L.D. until four or five years ago. So he aged really slowly. He aged quicker than Nick and quicker than Steve Rogers did but he aged quite slowly. He was chronologically frozen him self for ten years. So there are all kinds of stuff that I’ve read in the comic books but who knows how they’re going to do it. I know they are going to go back to WWII in Cap 2. You know in flashbacks but past that I’m not sure. Also what would make me happier than a pig in poop would be to be part of and see Sam Jackson as a ‘60s or ‘70s version of Nick Fury. That would just be awesome. Hopefully we’ll get that one done soon. I know Sam is very excited about it."
On whether there was talk for him to appear in The Avengers...
"No, with The Avengers I think they wanted to go with the core characters first and I have no problem with that. Just to be part of the Marvel universe at all is such a blessing. It’s been fantastic. If I do ten more of these or one more of these, I’ve already been part of Captain America and that’s like a dream come true."
On Marvel Studios' direction for the Captain America sequel...
"Yeah the talk now is that they are going to flashback to WWII and without going to much into, because I’m not supposed to say too much at all, but whatever they do I guarantee you this … it’s going to be an awesome movie. The villain is going to be crazy, and it will be really terrific. The origin of Cap being in WWII is definitely paramount to the guys over at Marvel."
So, judging from this interview, it seems Marvel may have a few solid directions for the Captain America sequel, including the decision to use WW2 flashbacks, as well who the Captain will be going up against. So, if plans are set this early on, could Chris Evans' offhand mention of Marvel planning the sequel for 2014 be more than accurate? What do you think?
Captain America: The First Avenger focuses on the early days of the Marvel Universe when Steve Rogers volunteers to participate in an experimental program that turns him into the Super Soldier known as Captain America. As Captain America, Rogers joins forces with Bucky Barnes and Peggy Carter to wage war on the evil HYDRA organization, led by the villainous Red Skull. Starring Chris Evans, Sebastian Stan, Tommy Lee Jones, Hayley Atwell, Samuel L. Jackson, Stanley Tucci and Hugo Weaving, the film hits shelves on Dvd and blu-ray October 25, 2011.
