It was a poorly kept secret that Samuel L. Jackson would be playing the role of Nick Fury in this summer's Iron Man - or so we thought. Comic Book Resources brought us an update from Wizard World Los Angeles, where Jackson's cameo role was confirmed, but it was stated that it may not appear in Iron Man.

What this means exactly is unsure. It seems possible that the Nick Fury appearance by Jackson may appear in The Incredible Hulk instead, which might help bring some attention to Marvel's second superhero film of this summer. It is also possible, though unlikely, that Jackson might appear in either X-Men Origins: Wolverine or Punisher: War Zone.

A final possibility is that Jackson's Fury may not appear in any of the movies directly, but instead may appear in promotional material such as trailers, webisodes or as DVD extras.
