Re: Captain America 2: News and Speculation - Part 1
Fury only needs the Infinity Formula if they want him to be a World War II veteran in the MCU as he is in the comics. Right now there's little need to do so. Samuel L. Jackson is already 60 years old (yeah, I was surprised when I found that out, too). He could just be a Vietnam veteran instead, or something.
