Samuel L. Jackson Speaks On A NICK FURY Movie; Confirms Bigger Role In CAPTAIN AMERICA 2

Samuel L. Jackson Speaks On A NICK FURY Movie; Confirms Bigger Role In CAPTAIN AMERICA 2

Offering a bit about his reprisal as Nick Fury in Captain America: The Winter Soldier, Samuel L. Jackson also discusses the possibility for a solo movie surrounding the S.H.I.E.L.D. Director. Check it out!

During the press junket for Quentin Tarantino's Django Unchained, sat down with actor Samuel L. Jackson to discuss his role in the upcoming spaghetti western. And ultimately, Jackson wound up talking about his Nick Fury role from The Avengers, among other Marvel films, and whether a solo movie for the S.H.I.E.L.D. Director would be necessary. The veteran actor offered:

“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. 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.”

Near the end of Samuel L. Jackson's interview with, the Academy Award-nominated actor apparently confirmed that Nick Fury “does indeed have a bigger role in Captain America: The Winter Soldier,” rather than a cameo, similar to Iron Man 2. What do you think?

Marvel Studios’ “Captain America: The Winter Soldier” will pick-up where the highly anticipated film “Marvel’s The Avengers” leaves off, as Steve Rogers continues his affiliation with Nick Fury and the peacekeeping organization S.H.I.E.L.D, and struggles to embrace his role in the modern world.

Starring Chris Evans, Anthony Mackie, Sebastian Stan, Frank Grillo, Cobie Smulders with Scarlett Johansson and Samuel L. Jackson, and directed by Joe Russo and Anthony Russo from a screenplay by Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely, “Captain America: The Winter Soldier” is distributed by Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures and is scheduled for release on April 4, 2014.

Hopefully Fury gets a bit more action this time. Stoked for the Winter Soldier.

Can't wait to see him in Cap 2. Great actor.
DaenerysTargaryen - 12/17/2012, 10:28 AM
Oh yay I'm soo excited. Yeah...just give me some news from this film. I keep forgetting it exists

Honestly I would MUCH rather see another marvel character get another solo movie, just use Fury in the tv show and marvel should spend their money on someone like black panther or doc strange or daredevil! Or captain marvel! So many (better) possibilities out there IMO
GoILL - 12/17/2012, 10:31 AM
Looking forward to seeing some set pics of Cap 2 in the coming months.
SuperSomething616 - 12/17/2012, 10:54 AM
Cannot wait for the Winter Solider!!! Really smart move on Marvels part that...
jimpinto24 - 12/17/2012, 10:55 AM
It's good that Nick Fury will get more screen time in CA:TWS.
thalidomide - 12/17/2012, 11:09 AM
Still not sure about this movie.
gmckoy - 12/17/2012, 11:15 AM
how about they forget fury and do a character like spawn, since black panther is in the works
shamo - 12/17/2012, 11:16 AM
not sure about this movie either. Chris Evans didn't impress me in CA:TFA, neither did the script. and the new directors don't do much for me either. and no Haley Atwell either right? thats a big loss IMO.

A NICK FURY Movie would be DOPE!! Just saying they could make it a really good action film with Cameos from his little buddies
DrDoom - 12/17/2012, 11:44 AM
Winter Soldier is going to be great, but a Nick Fury solo movie would probably be a waste, to be honest. So many more deserving characters.
TheGambitFreak - 12/17/2012, 11:47 AM
Wonder if he'll cameo in the show...
AztecRainGod - 12/17/2012, 11:48 AM
No thanks, while I love all of the movies Fury has been in, Jacksons portrayal of the character has been pretty meh.

captain america 2 should also have hawkeye in the movie because hawkeye works for shield too and its impossible not to bump into him while cap is working with black widow and fury
FirstAvenger - 12/17/2012, 12:53 PM
Wait is he a WWII veteran in the MCU?
MrDonut - 12/17/2012, 1:04 PM
I would love it if Marvel made it so that Nick Fury was actually Isaiah Bradley (the first/black Captain America of WWII) and faked his death/changed his name to become Fury cos of the politics of the times; think it would add a lot of depth as well as grit to the entire MCU... 'The First Avenger' completely failed to capture any racial tension/prejudices that people had with one another at the time and as such failed in my eyes of making it seem credible...
SpoonWielder - 12/17/2012, 1:08 PM
I don't think a Nick Fury solo movie would work. It's kind of like having an Odin solo movie. They've both interesting characters, but they work better as a secondary character. As the wise mentor, or what have you. Plus you couldn't do a Fury solo movie without delving into his origins, which would mean no Sam Jackson, because he can't play his younger self anymore. So what's the point? Plus Fury's character plays better shrouded in mystery.
wallhead - 12/17/2012, 1:10 PM

thats what im sayin
wallhead - 12/17/2012, 1:12 PM

what are you talking about!? a solo odin movie would be too serious!
dezdigi - 12/17/2012, 1:17 PM
Regardless of which characters show up, I want a great sequel. CA was good but not great, imo.

SpoonWielder - 12/17/2012, 1:18 PM
@wallhead, maybe you should read my comment again, seems like you missed the point I was making.
Azazel1 - 12/17/2012, 1:36 PM
They had better change Caps retarded looking costume!!!!
TheAbomination - 12/17/2012, 1:56 PM
"Nick Fury's a great guy."

He's also a manipulating liar. But, you know, he's cool anyway.
sharkman03191 - 12/17/2012, 2:08 PM
Hey, I'd like to point out that I always knew that Nick Fury was white.
elcaballerooscuro92 - 12/17/2012, 2:08 PM
i don't know if he deserves an entire movie. i think a mini series could good or at least a one shot

A year from now we will have seen IM3, Thor2, Kick-Ass 2, All Super-Heroes Must Die, Man Of Steel, The Wolverine, Lone Ranger in theaters.
Every film genre dies out no matter how high the popularity at its peak. The genre may have peaked with Avengers and it will be interesting to see if in 2013 the genre's numbers begin to fall.
The major indicator of a fall will be when Superhero films are good but still fail.
The ones the studios will watch are IM3, Thor 2 and MOS. If 2 of the 3 underperform significantly studios may scrap projects.
Of the 7 major Superhero films in 2011-12 only 2, Avengers and TDKR, were huge moneymakers.
It is likely that only IM3 will be a major success among superhero films next year while MOS, and Thor are moderate successes like TASM and the others average to poor.
2013 films are going to be more competitive than 2012 and there are some fresh ideas among them as well.

Potential surprises: After Earth (June),World War Z (June), The End of the World (June), White House Down (June),Pacific Rim (July) and etc.
Sequels: Trek 2 (May), Hangover3 (May), Fast and Furious 6 (May), Hunger Games 2 (Nov).

So in 2013 we have more superhero films in a year than ever before but with some great competition. Its going to be very interesting to see what happens.

I'd love to see a fury movie as a WWII or even a Vietnam Conflict era movie. When the comic came out during the conflict it took place during WWII. Now the movie will be made around the time of the Afganistan War and take place during the sixties and the Vietnam thing...Make sense?...
nuclearpriest - 12/17/2012, 2:55 PM
I hope at some point during the press junket for Django Unchained somebody asks Sam L. if he will be, in any way, involved in the SHIELD television show.
macfint - 12/17/2012, 3:33 PM
he woulda been f*n cool Luke Cage. shit. we gotta get Tarantino back into it.
manofmidgard - 12/17/2012, 5:09 PM
i'd love to see the old nick fury versus shield mini-series made into a movie. with sam jackson of course. would be so bad-ass.
Funsize - 12/17/2012, 5:40 PM
Cant wait for those set photos!!!
kemuael - 12/17/2012, 5:41 PM
i would like to see more of fury.
kamberlin22 - 12/17/2012, 5:44 PM
I'm excited!
PeterParker1991 - 12/17/2012, 8:11 PM
Nice, but Fury don't need a spin-off film. It'd be nice though to see S.H.I.E.L.D have more of a presence in the Marvel Universe post Avengers. Now if only Spiderman could also join this universe...
mgeoff88 - 12/17/2012, 8:31 PM
That makes sense. I'm glad he'll have a bigger role.

Nick Fury will be working closely with Captain America to help him adapt more to the modern world. He'll probably send Cap on S.H.I.E.D. ops across the globe.

@MistressDeath I'm really anticipating seeing what Winter Soldier and Falcon will look like! I hope they look bad ass!
EarOne - 12/18/2012, 4:47 AM
they shoulda gone ahead with a SHIELD big screen movie first before going into the whole tv series thang...

the movie's gonna have a LOT to offer...all the Nick Fury's stuff, not yet revealed, both Widow and Hawkeye's backstories. plus, we can also introduce some of the other characters, like Sam Wilson/Falcon. he could be introduced here instead of Cap 2, so in that movie, we could just skip the whole intro thing and go right into the action.

other characters that can be intro'd here: Sharon Carter, Carol Danvers (Ms. Marvel), Abigail Brand (SWORD top agent) and other shield characters.

other characters that can also appear in this: Jim Rhodes, Gen. Ross and his daughter..heck! you can put ANYbody in this movie. [sigh] IF only....
