Samuel L. Jackson has revealed his Marvel character Nick Fury will play a more prominent role in 'Captain America: The Winter Soldier'

'Captain America: The Winter Solider' will examine Nick Fury's back story.

Samuel L. Jackson has cast doubt on speculation that the S.H.I.E.L.D. commander will be given his own spinoff movie after revealing fans will learn more about the character in the forthcoming Marvel sequel.

He 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 'America 2' in late March."

Samuel, 63, admits he loves returning to the character, who he will portray for the sixth time in 'Captain America: The Winter Soldier', because he is such a "great guy".

He told ComingSoon: "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."

'Captain America: The Winter Solider' is due for release April 4, 2013.

Just as the titular hero (Evans) is adjusting to life in the 21st century, SHIELD turns out to have been infiltrated, and he must team up with Black Widow (Johansson) and Falcon (Mackie). A highly enjoyable conspiracy thriller with stunning action sequences, outstanding performances and a clever, morally complex plot.
