Samuel L. Jackson reprises his role as Nick Fury in "Captain America: The Winter Soldier" and says the new film switches gears from what typical action films have been.
The movie is the sequel to 2011's "Captain America: The First Avenger" and takes place two years after "The Avengers." Captain America, aka Steve Rogers, continues to work for S.H.I.E.L.D. and struggles to adjust to the 21st Century as he chases down an agent known as the Winter Soldier.
The film also stars Chris Evans, Scarlett Johansson, Sebastian Stan, Cobie Smulders, Emily VanCamp of ABC's "Revenge" and Robert Redford.
Jackson recently talked to OTRC.com about the themes in the film, Nick Fury having a bigger role and more.
Watch Jackson's interview above and check out five highlights from the interview below.
1. There's more "intrigue" in "Captain America: The Winter Soldier."
"It's a little fun in this one. Seems to have switch gears in terms of what these action films actually are," Jackson said. "There's a lot more intrigue in this film than there has been in the others, not as straight forward, you know, just, you know, set piece."
2. The film addresses eavesdropping in the 21st Century.
"It addresses the fact that, you know, people are eavesdropping and that people are doing this, that and the other and that somebody foresaw it and nobody did anything about it," Jackson said. "And Cap being new to the 21st Century in a certain kind of way has this old fashioned sense of patriotism that [is] kind of clashing with the new world way of keeping America safe. "
3. Nick Fury plays a larger role in this film.
"His sensibility is sort of on display in terms of what's going on here," the actor said of his character. "Like he says he and Natasha are closer kin than Nick and Captain America in terms of what they'll do and the means, the ends they'll go to get it done."
4. "Captain America: The Winter Soldier" can stand on its own, but it still plays a large part in the Marvel film universe.
"It's its own movie, but it's connected in a way to what happened before in 'Avengers' because now Nick has this big S.H.I.E.L.D. initiative that's going on because he proved to them that there's all these bad guys out there in the world. So now they're building bigger and better weapons to keep that at bay."
5. He gets more recognition for his 'Pulp Fiction' character than for playing Nick Fury.
"You know, the amazing thing about 'Pulp Fiction,' over the 20 years, is that every year there's a new generation of kids that come of age that can watch it," Jackson said. "So it keeps it fresh and it keeps Jules fresh in their minds like they've seen if for the first time, so it's the coolest thing in their lives. So that's still is way up on the top of the list."
