The MCU Cameo That Almost Happened In Breaking Bad

Samuel L. Jackson’s Nick Fury has long made a habit of popping up where he’s least expected. Whether he’s emerging from the shadows in Tony Stark’s living room during Iron Man‘s post-credits scene (the MCU’s very first), or hanging out in a secure S.H.I.E.L.D. medical facility after faking his death in Captain America: The Winter Soldier, it seems like hardly anyone ever expects to see Fury when he shows up. This would have been particularly true if a pitch floated by Jackson to the producers of Breaking Bad had come to fruition.

In a 2012 interview with IndieWire, Jackson revealed that for a time, it happened to work out that Breaking Bad and a little Marvel Studios production you may have heard of titled The Avengers were shooting in close proximity to each other. “[The Breaking Bad crew] shot in the studio right across from us in Albuquerque,” he explained. Jackson’s pitch: to have Fury, in all his eye-patched glory, stroll into Fring’s Los Pollos Hermanos restaurant for a bite. “I just wanted to order a three piece and really freak people out,” Jackson said. “Then people would be going, ‘Wow, was that him?'”

Unfortunately, the creative minds behind Breaking Bad apparently weren’t keen to merge their world with one so fantastical as that of the MCU. We submit, though, that there may have been a different reason. You see, in a season 2 episode of AMC’s other flagship series, The Walking Dead, sharp-eyed viewers caught a glimpse of a baggie containing what appeared to be Heisenberg’s signature blue meth — implying that at some point after the events of Breaking Bad, the world became overrun with zombies. So, perhaps one connection to the fantastical was all that Breaking Bad‘s creatives were down for. It’s a shame, though — allowing the MCU to join the mix would have resulted in an easy setup for a live-action Marvel Zombies, and who doesn’t want that?
