Nick Fury Gets A Day Off, Probably Won't Be In 'Iron Man 3'

As the Marvel universe continues to expand, the one sort-of constant has been Samuel L. Jackson as Nick Fury, popping his head into "Iron Man," "Iron Man 2," "Thor," "Captain America: The First Avenger" and of course, "The Avengers" to ensure he can provide the exposition to keep the movies connected. But it seems he'll finally get to take a bit of break as the "Iron Man 3" won't be needing his services.

The Avengers Samuel L. Jackson

As the Marvel universe continues to expand, the one sort-of constant has been Samuel L. Jackson as Nick Fury, popping his head into "Iron Man," "Iron Man 2," "Thor," "Captain America: The First Avenger" and of course, "The Avengers" to ensure he can provide the exposition to keep the movies connected. But it seems he'll finally get to take a bit of break as the "Iron Man 3" won't be needing his services.

"I think my next time as Nick Fury is in 'Captain America: The Winter Soldier.' Because I’m not in 'Iron Man 3,'" he told Total Film (via MTV). "None of the Avengers are in 'Iron Man 3.' It’s a standalone 'Iron Man' movie." So that will still leave plenty for fans to speculate about, particularly when it comes to the post credit sequence. With none of the Avengers being involved, will we get another tease of Thanos? Maybe Frank Grillo's Crossbones from 'The Winter Soldier' will buy some pad thai? Or maybe the still alive Agent Coulson will tease the upcoming "S.H.I.E.L.D." show. Whatever happens, it won't be Nick Fury's job this time around.

"Iron Man 3" opens on May 5, 2013 and you can check out some very serious looking new images right here.
