After appearances in Iron Man, Iron Man 2, Thor, Captain America: The First Avenger and Avengers Assemble, Samuel L. Jackson’s Nick Fury is hugely associated with Marvel’s recent ‘Phase One’ batch of films. With Iron Man 3 on the way next summer, it was obvious to presume that Jackson’s Fury would be involved in some form. Not so, according to Jackson himself.
In an interview with Total Film, Jackson revealed that the next time you see Nick Fury will be in 2014′s Captain America: The Winter Soldier. Jackson explained, “I think my next time as Nick Fury is in Captain America: The Winter Soldier because I’m not in Iron Man 3. None of the Avengers are in Iron Man 3. It’s a standalone Iron Man movie.”
