The actor has revealed that his character, Nick Fury, will not be seen in Marvel Studios' next film.
"I think my next time as Nick Fury is in Captain America: The Winter Soldier because I'm not in Iron Man 3," he told Total Film.
"None of the Avengers are in Iron Man 3. It's a standalone Iron Man movie."
He appeared in Iron Man and its sequel.
Iron Man 2 also featured Scarlett Johansson as Black Widow. From Jackson's comments, it seems that she will not appear in the upcoming movie.
Robert Downey Jr, Gwyneth Paltrow and Don Cheadle will reprise their roles in Iron Man 3 alongside newcomers Ben Kingsley and Guy Pearce.
The film will arrive in UK cinemas on April 26, 2013, following in the US on May 3.
