While Samuel L. Jackson portraying Nick Fury in Phase One of the Marvel Cinematic Universe was not a huge role, it was definitely an important one, and he will indeed be coming back for Phase Two. The actor confirms that his first appearance will be in the sequel "Captain America: The Winter Solider".
Jackson states, "I think my next time as Nick Fury is in Captain America: The Winter Soldier because I’m not in Iron Man 3. None of the Avengers are in Iron Man 3. It’s a standalone Iron Man movie."
The eye-patch clad, tough ringleader of S.H.I.E.L.D, will be returning with lead Chris Evans reprising his role as Steve Rogers/Captain America, Scarlet Johansson as Black Widow, Cobie Smulders as Maria Hill and Sebastian Stan as Bucky Barnes. Newcomers this round will include Anthony Macki taking on the role of Falcon and Frank Grillo as Crossbones.
Directed by Anthony and Joe Russo, "Captain America: The Winter Soldier" hits AMC Theatres on April 4, 2014. “Iron Man 3” releases in May 2013, “Thor: The Dark World” in November 2013 and “The Avengers 2” in May 2015.
