Excited about that brief appearance of Samuel L. Jackson as Nick Fury at the end of Iron Man? Wait - You didn't see it? Well you heard about it, right?
Just in case: Jon Favreau introduced the character Nick Fury after the credits of Iron Man, as played by Jackson. The character confronts Tony Stark about the creation of the Avengers. And that's it. Fortunately for Jackson, his part will be much, much bigger in the Iron Man sequel.
Iron Man Sequel Features Return of Nick Fury
If Nick Fury only has a few minutes during the actual movie we can already call the part exponentially bigger. While talking to IESB, Samuel L. Jackson confirmed not only the return of Fury to the sequel but news that we won't have to wait until after the credits to see him.
Jackson replied that as a matter of fact, IRON MAN director Jon Favreau spoke to him at the Scream Awards last night, (dammit, IESB was there but neither of them walked the red carpet!), and Favreau told Jackson that Nick Fury would have a much more prominent role in the second one. Which honestly isn't hard to accomplish considering he was relegated to the end of the film with a very short cameo.
Cameo? The only people that saw him were those that hung out after the credits. More like an afterthought...
