Samuel L. Jackson on Nick Fury’s role in Avengers: Age of Ultron

During an interview with Yahoo! Movies to promote Captain America: The Winter Soldier, Samuel L. Jackson has spoken about his role as Nick Fury in the currently-in-production Avengers: Age of Ultron, revealing that his part in the hotly-anticipated sequel will be limited to little more than a cameo:

“I’m just kind of passing by there [in Avengers: Age of Ultron] you know.  I’m not doing so much, I don’t think. Because, it’s another one of those ‘people who have powers fighting people who have powers’. That’s why I didn’t get to New York in The Avengers. There’s not a lot I could do except shoot a gun.”

The Avengers: Age of Ultron is set for release on May 1st 2015 with Joss Whedon directing a cast that also includes MCU veterans Robert Downey Jr. (Iron Man), Chris Evans (Captain America), Chris Hemsworth (Thor), Mark Ruffalo (The Incredible Hulk), Jeremy Renner (Hawkeye), Scarlett Johansson (Black Widow), Don Cheadle (War Machine), Cobie Smulders (Maria Hill) and Paul Bettany (JARVIS / The Vision) alongside new additions Aaron Taylor-Johnson (Kick-Ass 2) as Quicksilver, Elizabeth Olsen (Oldboy) as the Scarlet Witch, James Spader (The Blacklist) as Ultron and Thomas Kretschmann (Dracula) as Baron Strucker.

    considering his role in winter solider i imagine he will still have a larger part to play behind the scenes.

    would love to see a Nick Fury solo movie, maybe a flashback film set in the seventies how he got involved with shield and scarred his eye etc etc.
