Just a month Gwyneth Paltrow failed to remember Winter Soldier star Sebastian Stan making him re-introduce himself thrice, Kevin Feige says that the Pepper Potts character didn’t know Nick Fury star Samuel L Jackson was in MCU. In a Q&A session with Empire magazine, Feige said Paltrow didn't realise Jackson had featured in any of the Marvel films until she shot a scene with him for Avengers: Endgame climax.
The studio honcho said the scene was shot in October 2017, ahead of "Infinity War" release, with many actors unaware that several other A-listers had signed up to appear in future films.
"Tom Holland (was) coming up to me, saying, 'Is that Michelle Pfeiffer? What is happening?'
"Gwyneth Paltrow (was) asking why Sam Jackson was there, and the other actors (were) jumping in saying, 'What are you talking about? He's Nick Fury! You've been in movies with him.' But it was really something special'," Feige said.
Despite his nine-film agreement having ended with Marvel, Jackson portrayed the character in "Endgame" and "Far From Home’’. He had a cameo appearance as Nick Fury in a post-credits scene of MCU's first film "Iron Man" (2008), which saw Paltrow along with Robert Downey Jr in the title role.
