Jackson Hints Fury Origin In Captain America?

In a bonus feature from the Iron Man 2 DVD/Blu Ray focusing on Nick Fury. Actor Samuel L. Jackson talks about his place in the Marvel universe in the video and mentions his age. He said: "My relationship with his father [Howard Stark]....How old I actually am". This gets me thinking that Fury could very well get his origin told in Captain America. Sam has already been confirmed to be starring in the film. Yet all that's been confirmed is that they would be contemporary bookend scenes. It's expected the scenes would show the discovery and thawing of a frozen Rogers by Fury. Leading to Cap's recruitment into SHIELD and the Avengers. Fury while fighting with the Howling Commandos during WWII was seriously injured and given the Infinity Formula helping him heal fast. The side effect of the serum was that his aging was significantly slowed. It's been confirmed by director Joe Johnston that some of the Howling Commandos will appear. Best friend and fellow Commando Dum Dum Dugan will be in the film played by Neal McDonough (Band of Brothers). His relationship with Tony's father Howard could also play out in the film since Stark will be providing gadgets and tech for the heroes. You never know they very well could be saving this for the Nick Fury film.
