Captain Marvel's Samuel L Jackson picks his four favourite MCU films

These are the ones he'd personally recommend should he encounter an alien in Blockbuster

Samuel L. Jackson on his favourite Marvel movies

Samuel L Jackson has reeled off his four favourite films from the Marvel Cinematic Universe – and they might surprise you.

The actor has reprised the role of Nick Fury for Captain Marvel, which he stars in with Brie Larson and Ben Mendelsohn.

In the film, his journey collides with Larson’s super-powered Carol Danvers after she crash lands in Blockbuster back in the 1990s.

With this in mind, The Independent sat down with Jackson and asked him, should he ever meet an alien in a film rental shop, which Marvel films would he recommend them to watch? The Pulp Fiction actor wasted no time in deciding.

Samuel L Jackson’s four favourite Marvel films are as follows:

Captain America: The Winter Soldier

Guardians of the Galaxy

Avengers Assemble

Captain Marvel

Jackson also expressed interest in revealing which films in general he’d recommend. These included two Francis Ford Coppola films – The Godfather (1972) and Apocalypse Now (1979) – a Spike Lee joint (1989’s Do the Right Thing) and one of his own films: Jackie Brown (1997).

He also selected Gareth Evans’s Indonesian action thriller, The Raid, which was released in 2011.

Note how the sole Quentin Tarantino film he picked was Jackie Brown in which he plays Ordell Robbie opposite Pam Grier and Robert De Niro. Could this be his favourite of the director’s? It certainly seems so.
