Amid the moderate twists and turns of Captain America: The Winter Soldier are the typical "easter eggs" that people far more fannish than I am take a part bit by bit, even when Marvel films present as trailers months beforehand. But this reference to the famous speech and theatrics Samuel L. Jackson made as Jules Winnfield in Pulp Fiction 20 years ago stands out. Although the reference funny, I have now decided that Jules Winnfield was a period where either Nick Fury was undercover, had amnesia, or was looking for a moment of "clarity", to connect it to a speech Jules makes towards the end of the film. Given that action movies love the concept of ex-soldiers whose only skill is killing, Pulp Fiction was just the heavily layered dramatic/dark comedy version of one of those films. Or maybe after surviving Pulp Fiction, Jules went to Amsterdam and took up with S.H.I.E.L.D. there. Captain America: The Winter Soldier ends with Nick Fury and Black Widow claiming that they will be leaving the country for awhile to lay low after exposing Hydra and their own identities and pasts as spies and secret agents. Cap and Sam Wilson will apparently be handling whatever is left of the falling out. The fallout of S.H.I.E.L.D. will be addressed in Captain America 3 in a few years, with the announcement yesterday that the third movie will be taking up the Civil War storyline in the comics.
Yeah, I know, the filmmakers just stuck that line on his tombstone as a joke or for lack of coming up with a better way to sum up Nick Fury's existence. Although I think it is funny that in most screenshots of Nick Fury's tombstone, his birth year and the year of even his fake death are blocked by flowers.
