Samuel L Jackson On Nick Furys Future

He won’t be in Thor, he will be in Captain America and he’ll be in The Avengers a lot

“I started on it when I did the end of Iron Man I,” he says. “My foot was on the path. Now my foot’s a little deeper on the path with Iron Man 2 . I'm not in Thor . Supposed to do Captain America this summer in London.”

Asked why he wasn’t in Thor , he responds: “Have no idea. I’m not in charge of making those kinds of decisions. I thought I was; they said I was in the trades and I was like, ‘Ooh! I got a job!’ I called my agent he said, ‘Naw, you're not in it.’ I was like, ‘Well shit, they need to pay me if they're gonna put my name in it.’”

On whether he expects that part of his roumoured nine-picture deal with Marvel would include a Nick Fury-toplining movie, he replies, “ The Avengers is my own starring vehicle for that character, pretty much.”
