Next summer’s Captain America 2 could examine Nick Fury’s, who is played by Samuel L. Jackson in The Avengers‘ series, back story.
Jackson recently stated, “Everybody likes a franchise character. Bruce [Willis] had his and Sylvester Stallone had Rocky, so I like coming back to Nick Fury. Nick Fury’s a great guy … I think a lot of people know that.”
Jackson then added, “I know him as something else because I’ve been alive longer than most of the fans that watch the movies so I know Nick Fury as the World War II veteran and all that stuff. It might be interesting to do one day but we find out little bits and pieces about Nick and we’re going into Captain America 2 in late March.”
Jackson recently confirmed that he would like to reprise his role as Nick Fury in Joss Whedon’s upcoming S.H.I.E.L.D. TV series, but this has yet to be confirmed.
Regarding the issue, Jackson said, “I keep hearing about it, and I haven’t talked to Joss about it. But in my mind, I would tend to think that he would, if nothing else, be like Charlie in Charlie’s Angels – at least [appear as] as the voice!”
However it has been confirmed that Fury will not be appearing in next year’s Iron Man 3, despite the fact that Jackson has appeared in both of its predecessors.
Captain America: The Winter Soldier, will be released on April 4, 2014, with Iron Man 3 set to hit cinemas on May 3 2013. Are you looking forward to these new editions of The Avengers series?
