Nick Fury fans will have to wait until next April to see Samuel L. Jackson's character on the big screen again in Captain America: The Winter Soldier, since he won't be appearing in this fall's Thor: The Dark World. The actor explained in a recent interview that movie goers will get to see a different side of the character at the S.H.I.E.L.D. offices.
"You see Nick Fury the office guy, him going about the day-to-day work of S.H.I.E.L.D. and the politics as opposed to that other stuff. It's great to have him dealing with Captain America in terms of being able to speak to him soldier to soldier and try to explain to him how the world has changed in another way while he was frozen in time. Some of the people who used to be our enemies are now our allies - him trying to figure out, 'Well, how do we trust those guys?' or 'How do we trust the guys that you didn't trust who don't trust you?' And explaining to him that the black and white of good guys/bad guys has now turned into this gray area. Nick lies to him all the time, too. (Laughs) But he's trying to help him navigate the waters of the new sharks that he doesn't know anything about."
The actor also spoke about Robert Redford's character Alexander Pierce, one of Nick Fury's bosses at the World Security Council.
"Yeah, he's part of that World Security Council I was talking to in (The Avengers), just he wasn't there. We also know each other because we've been comrades for a very long time. There's some stuff that's said that gives you an idea of how he's been part of that environment for a long time and the kind of guy he was."
