During one of his many recent interviews in support of Quentin Tarantino’s Django Unchained, Samuel L. Jackson revealed that, even though fans won’t get to lock eye with his iteration of Nick Fury again until Captain America: The Winter Soldier, that film will give them a chance to see a bit more of the character’s backstory.
“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,” Jackson told ComingSoon. ”I think a lot of people know that [he's a great guy]. 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.”
He added, “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.”
