"The Avengers (http://uk.movies.ign.com/objects/769/769931.html) is my own starring vehicle for that character, pretty much," Samuel L. Jackson (http://uk.stars.ign.com/objects/913/913546.html) recently declared about his role as S.H.I.E.L.D. director Nick Fury (http://uk.stars.ign.com/objects/923/923839.html) in Marvel's upcoming movies.

Sci Fi Wire (http://scifiwire.com/2010/04/badass-samuel-l-jackson-s.php) attended a roundtable interview this week with Jackson, during which time the actor addressed his future as the Marvel movie universe's top spy. "I got started on it when I did the end of Iron Man 1," he recalled. "My foot was on the path. Now my foot's a little deeper on the path because we've got Iron Man 2 (http://uk.movies.ign.com/objects/142/14251831.html). I'm not in Thor (http://uk.movies.ign.com/objects/041/041031.html). Supposed to do Captain America (http://uk.movies.ign.com/objects/034/034020.html) this summer in London."

Jackson didn't know why he's not appearing in Thor; Marvel's own official Thor movie mini-site (http://marvel.com/movies/thor.thor) still lists him as a cast member in it.

Jackson revealed that he's supposed to start filming Avengers next February.
