This coming weekend, audiences will feast their eyes on Disney’s live-action sci-fi adventure Tomorrowland starring George Clooney. The movie’s high profile writer Damon Lindelof has just revealed that there was a Tomorrowland credits scene pitch that would have featured both Marvel and Star Wars franchises!
He wanted Nick fury aka Samuel Jackson to be part of George Clooney’s Tomorrowland!
“My pitch was that there was going to be a post-credits scene in Tomorrowland and at the very end of the movie, if you watch the credits, there’s a pin and you see someone picking it up. And the reveal would be that Samuel Jackson, wearing an eye patch and holding a lightsaber and he looks sort of befuddled – maybe a Frozone uniform – and he goes ‘I’m in this one too?’ And bam, cut to black.”
