The D23 Expo is underway and there’s been some interesting and exciting news having specifically to do with The Incredibles 2. One of the returning characters is, of course, Samuel L. Jackson’s Frozone. While at D23, Jackson compared Frozone to another character who resides in a superhero universe: Nick Fury from the MCU. Jackson says that they’re both different characters, obviously, and that Nick Fury is “just kind of angry” whereas Frozone isn’t.
“Well you know it’s different being in a studio and being on set and looking at people that are bigger than you and have super powers. At least in this one I have powers. When I’m Nick Fury I’m just kind of the only guy in the movie that really doesn’t have powers. I’m just kind of angry, but anger can be a power.”
We’ll be seeing Jackson back as Nick Fury in next year’s Avengers: Infinity War. And with Incredibles 2, Frozone will be taking to the streets alongside the Parr family. This time around, however, the story will be focusing more on Elastigirl, which is really exciting. The film has also been confirmed to be taking place immediately after the events of the first movie (the power of animation).
Are you excited that Samuel L. Jackson will be back as Frozone? Let us know in the comments below!
The Incredibles 2 will be directed by Brad Bird and will be released in theaters on June 15, 2018.
