Samuel L Jackson says he's confident that he'll be part of The Incredibles sequel.

The Captain America star - who voiced Mr Incredible's best friend Lucius Best/Frozone in 2004 movie The Incredibles - said director-writer Brad Bird has assured him that his character will be in the follow-up.

"Every time I run into Brad, he always tells me Frozone is part of what's going on, so I have to believe that," he told Digital Spy.

But he admitted his inclusion was guaranteed, adding: "I guess they could be The Incredibles without Frozone, but I think Frozone would be a wonderful, wonderful additions to what's already there."

Walt Disney Company chief Bob Iger revealed that a follow-up to the superhero movie was on the cards during the company's shareholder's meeting in the US.

Brad, who directed the first film, is writing The Incredibles 2.

Samuel, who will reprise his role as SHIELD leader Nick Fury in Captain America: The Winter Soldier, said he cannot wait to see what is in store for The Incredibles character baby Jack-Jack Parr.

"I'm just excited to see what Jack-Jack turned into," he said.
