The latest updates and spoilers for "Avengers: Infinity War" will feature Tom Vaughan-Lawlor for the role of Ebony Maw and Nick Fury not appearing in the sequel.

First Black Order cast member revealed

"Love/Hate" actor Tom Vaughan-Lawlor has been confirmed to play Ebony Maw in "Avengers: Infinity War" during an interview session with RTE Radios 1's Second Captain. He answered the radio host with an emphatic "yes" and stated that he has been signing so many weavers and documents related to the movie, and does not want to reply to the fans with a generic and boring answer.

There is also a behind-the-scenes photo of Vaughan-Lawlor wearing a motion capture suit confronting Benedict Cumberbatch's character Doctor Stephen Strange, hinting that Ebony Maw is targeting him for the Eye of Agamotto a.k.a. the Time Stone.

Ebony Maw is a member of Thanos' vanguard group, the Black Order in "Infinity War." He will be joined by his siblings Corvus Glaive, Proxima Midnight, and Cull Obsidian. Ebony has mind controlling powers that can influence everyone using his very own words. He is also the "brains" behind the group, possessing a keen intellect and dangerous cunning that can measure up with his sibling's powers.

Thanos and the Black Order will seek and collect all of the Infinity Stones to reshape the universe, and it is up to the Avengers and the Guardians of the Galaxy to stop them before they unleash their plans.

Nick Fury appearance not happening?

An important character in the Marvel Cinematic Universe will not return in "Avengers: Infinity War" as Samual L. Jackson confirmed that Nick Fury would not be included in the film, along with "Black Panther" and "Avengers 4."

Jackson told Yahoo Movies UK that he was not included in the two "Avengers" films since the Studio has not yet called him.

He also reaffirmed that he would not appear in Marvel Studios' first film starring a black hero.

"They wouldn't let me go to 'Black Panther'-ville, so it's kinda like how you gonna make a black Marvel movie and not let Nick Fury show up in it?!," Jackson said.

The good news, however, is that a young Nick Fury will be featured in "Captain Marvel" and teased how he lost his "good eye" in the film.

Nick Fury has been an important figure in the MCU as he was responsible for gathering the Avengers in phase 1. His absence in phase 3 has been the subject of many fan debates in the internet forums.

Fans are hoping that Marvel Studios will change their mind and have Nick Fury back in the remaining phase 4 films aside from "Captain Marvel."

The sequel will premiere in cinemas on May 24, 2018.
