Marvel Studios president and producer Kevin Feige recently said that none of the Avengers would be appearing in Iron Man 3 (maybe Ant-Man?!), and now Samuel L. Jackson says more of the same.
Jackson tells Total Film Magazine (Via MTV) that Iron Man 3 will be a standalone movie and that he won't be featured in it, but does offer where we can see the leader of S.H.I.E.L.D. next -- in Captain America 2, "The Winter Soldier."
"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 the Total Film. "None of the Avengers are in 'Iron Man 3.' It’s a standalone 'Iron Man' movie."
So by those statements it would be "no" for Thor 2 as well, as Thor 2 follows Iron Man 3, with Captain America 2 following Thor 2.
Wonder if Nick Fury will be in the Guardians of the Galaxy movie?
Iron Man 3 blasts off May 3rd, 2013 directed by Shane Black and starring Robert Downey Jr., Scarlett Johansson (Black Widow), Gwyneth Paltrow and Don Cheadle.

With his back against the wall, Stark is left to survive by his own devices, relying on his ingenuity and instincts to protect those closest to him.
