A possible Nick Fury movie, and a larger role in Captain America 2? Samuel L Jackson has no shortage of Marvel work…

Phase two of Marvel’s collection of comic book movies gets underway starting early next summer, with the release of Iron Man 3. Thor: The Dark World will follow before the year is out, but 2013 will also see production beginning on both Captain America: The Winter Soldier, and more than likely Guardians Of The Galaxy.

Samuel L Jackson has been chatting with SuperHeroHype on the promotional tour for Quentin Tarantino’s Django Unchained, and revealed that “I like coming back to Nick Fury”.

When asked about whether there would ever be a solo movie for the character, he said that “Nick Fury’s a great guy. I think a lot of people know that. 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”, he said.

He did reveal that “we find out little bits and pieces about Nick” in Captain America: The Winter Soldier. The role of Fury will be bigger in the new Captain America film, and not the usual cameo.
