Samuel L. Jackson’s version of Nick Fury has garnered a lot of fans, and said fans have long been clamoring for a spin-off franchise for the S.H.I.E.L.D. agent, but according to Jackson, the fans need to hold their breath.
But if it’s just for the purpose of fleshing out the character’s backstory, Jackson states that Fury’s character may end up being fleshed out as part of other characters’ adventures:
“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… I think a lot of people know that.
“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.”
