Feige explained that the character played by Samuel L. Jackson will have an expanded role compared to the ones he had in "Iron Man 2", "Thor" and "Captain America: The First Avenger".

"The promise we made to Sam was when we got to 'The Avengers' it would be his time to shine," said Feige. "Sam was very pleased when he got the script and saw how many great scenes Nick Fury had in the film. He is very active and in command on the Helicarrier and really gets into the action.
