Possible Nick Fury Standalone Movie in the Future?
Next year sees the start of the second phase of Marvel's superheroes hitting the big screen with the much anticipated "Iron Man 3", which will be quickly followed by the second Thor movie, "Thor:The Dark World". Also, next year sees the start of production of "Captain America: The Winter Solider", where we will see the return of Samuel L Jackson as Nick Fury.
While promoting his latest movie "Django Unchained", Jackson took time out to talk about what lies in the future for the head of S.H.I.E.L.D. and stated his liking for the character, saying, "I like coming back to Nick Fury".
So when asked by SuperHeroHype on the likelihood of a Nick Fury standalone movie, the actor replied, "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"
When asked about his role in the next Captain America movie, the Avengers star revealed "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."
"Captain America: The Winter Soldier" will be released in theaters in the spring of 2014.
Countdown to the release of Captain America: The Winter Soldier, with the iPhone Movie Countdown Clock App.
