'Captain America: The Winter Soldier' plot to explore Nick Fury origin

By
Captain America: The Winter Solider will delve into the backstory for Samuel L Jackson's Nick Fury.

The actor confirmed that the S.H.I.E.L.D. commander's origin will be fleshed out in the upcoming sequel, casting doubt on the possibility of a spinoff movie in the near future.

"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," he told ComingSoon.

Asked whether a solo movie is needed to explain Fury's backstory, Jackson said: "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.

"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."

Jackson recently revealed that he is keen to reprise his Nick Fury role in Joss Whedon's forthcoming S.H.I.E.L.D. TV series, but no talks have taken place regarding this.

The character will not appear in next year's Iron Man 3 despite Jackson having roles in both of its predecessors.

Captain America: The Winter Solider arrives in cinemas on April 4, 2013.
