SAN DIEGO (AP) — Samuel L. Jackson's just like everybody else: He has no idea what's going on with the new "Star Wars" films.

Jackson was at Comic-Con on Saturday to promote his new film "Captain America: The Winter Soldier" and held court on a number of subjects in an interview, including J.J. Abrams' new installments in George Lucas' cinema-changing franchise.

But unlike the tens of thousands of fans at the annual all-things-geek gathering, Jackson has had the opportunity to ask what's up. And he still doesn't know.

He saw Abrams recently at Lucas' wedding but says he only got meaningful expressions and shrugs, not any real information about what will come next as the franchise moves onto its seventh episode in 2015.

Jackson also wonders why his Nick Fury character isn't part of the new "Marvel's Agents of SHIELD" television series.
