Since Samuel L. Jackson’s cameo appearance as Nick Fury in the closing scene of Iron Man, it has been widely assumed that his role in Iron Man 2 would expand to include some action and not just pulling up at a donut shop.
“Not this time, not yet,” says Jackson to MTV News at a recent event commemorating the release of Do The Right Thing on Blu-ray Disc and DVD. “We still haven’t moved Nick Fury into the bad-ass zone. He’s still just kind of a talker.”
MTV push Jackson to see if he would open up on what the future holds for Nick Fury and teaming up with The Avengers to brawl. “Looking forward to that, yeah.”
Sam continues to say he has wrapped his scenes for Iron Man 2 and most are with Robert Downey Jr., though he has a couple with Scarlett Johansson as well. Let the speculation begin.
Nick Fury’s roles in the other upcoming Marvel films, Thor and The First Avenger: Captain America, are unknown at this time. There’s a good chance he could appear in one or both films considering his contract has him tied to nine Marvel movies. That’s a lot of Fury.
