Samuel L. Jackson will next be seen as his Marvel character Nick Fury in 2014’s CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE WINTER SOLDIER, and not IRON MAN 3. The news has come from the man himself during an interview with Total Film in the UK. The character was last seen in AVENGERS ASSEMBLE, and before that in the first CAPTAIN AMERICA movie and IRON MAN 2.
He had this to say with the UK film magazine:
“I think my next time as Nick Fury is in Captain America: The Winter Soldier,” said the actor, “because I’m not in Iron Man 3. None of the Avengers are in Iron Man 3. It’s a standalone Iron Man movie.”
I was not a fan of the first CA movie, but loved the heck out of ‘Avengers,’ so I’ll probably be in line for this come April, 2014. Chris Evans once again headlines CA”, while Scarlett Johansson, Cobie Smulders, Anthony Mackie and Frank Grillo also appear.
