Jackson: I want Nick Fury film

Samuel L Jackson has denied there is a Nick Fury film in the works.

There have been rumours that Nick's origins will be the focus of his own movie, titled Nick Fury, which the actor has dismissed.

However, the 65-year-old, who has reprised his role as the S.H.I.E.L.D. leader for the sixth time in Captain America: The Winter Soldier, said he would like his eye patch-wearing alter-ego to have his own spin-off film.

"Yes," he said, before adding: "I don't know (what would happen). I don't write, I just act."

Samuel, who first played the character in 2008's Iron Man, admitted he still enjoys the role.

"I still have as much fun as I can. I just like the fact he's in this fantastic world. He is this sort of ordinary guy that has the personality that can make extraordinary people bend to his will," he said.

He joked wearing the eye patch was a hindrance when it came to learning his lines, saying: "I have to turn my head further but the interesting thing about the patch that I didn't discover until the first Captain America was when I, all of a sudden, had dialogue because I never had many lines to say.

"I would learn it the night before when I got to work, and I could only see half the page when I put the patch on. I have discovered I have to learn my lines now with one hand covering my eye so my mind will absorb what's going on in there."

Samuel added: "I'm really glad that we saw more of Nick and how he reacts to situations. It was a real joy to go under Nick's workplace and find out who he is."

:: Captain America: The Winter Soldier opens in cinemas on March 26.
