Sam Jackson To Return As Nick Fury – Over & Over Again

samfury Sam Jackson To Return As Nick Fury   Over & Over AgainThe last we heard, due to salary negotiation problems, Samuel L. Jackson was no longer going to be playing Nick Fury in movies based on the Marvel Comics universe. His next appearance was to be in Iron Man 2, where he was supposed to have more of a significant role than his brief after-credits cameo in the first film.

Although I don’t consider him irreplaceable, I do like the idea of Jackson as Fury, based on the Marvel “Ultimates” version of the character. Some people are up in arms that Fury isn’t being portrayed as the classic version of the character going back 40 years, but to me he’s a supporting character in the films so it doesn’t bother me.

Anyway, I guess that he and Marvel must have come to a very nice agreement indeed, because Sam Jackson has signed a NINE picture deal with Marvel Studios!

According to The Hollywood Reporter the films include Iron Man 2, Thor, Captain America, The Avengers and any sequels related to these films. There is also the possibility of a spin-off S.H.I.E.L.D. movie as well.

There’s no word on amount (not that it’s really any of our business) nor the exact movie titles, but nine movies indicates big plans by Marvel as far as both number of films and plans to run a common thread through all of them.

To me this is the first positive news about Iron Man 2 that I’ve heard in a while.

  1. sorry guys, i should have been more clearer. what i meant was having cap easter eggs in the movie, not actually cap himself because of the upcoming movie for cap. but let’s face it, you can’t talk about ww2 in the marvel univese without having some reference to Captain America. as for fury i think they may have him in one scene, and it be a quick scene. this would not interfere with fury being in wolverine’s movie if the use the original nick fury. the nick fury they are going with in iron man 2 is nick fury from mavrel ultimates (totally different class). if not, they will probably just mention fury’s name without showing us a face.

  2. I quite agree with most of the people on here,but IMO This version of Nick Fury is the glue or thread that holds together the expanded story arc,based upon the Ultimates storyline.

    thats all I have to say tonight on this topic.

  3. I’ll love to see some SHIELD movies.

    And I’m glad they got Sam Jackson back. Considering the movie character is based on the Ultimate Marvel version of Fury, and that Fury is based on Sam Jackson, it seems stupid to recast the character.

    If for some reason Jackson wasn’t going to be Nick Fury, they might as well make the character similar to the main universe version (not Hasselhoff, please).

  4. Nick Fury’s color matters not one bit. Black or white, it’s the attitude of the character that is needed. Just like in Daredevil (although it was mediocre), a black Kingpin worked out just fine. I’m glad Sam Jackson is back in the films, but it really doesn’t mean THAT much. The consistency from IM is nice though.

  5. i have no problem with color, but i do have a problem when hollywood changing the character to drastic measures, and i think changing the color of the character is very drastic.

  6. However, because they are basing this Nick Fury on the ultimate’s fury, I have no problem with it at all.

  7. if you read a erly ultimutes comic fury actualy recomends Jackson to play him in an avengers movie now thats fate right there lol

  8. What’s important is the PERFORMANCE of the actor, not the skin color!

    That being said, it does seem as though SLJ goes to the Angry Black Man fountain a bit much…his recent casting as Sho’Nuff, the Shogun of Harlem in the remake of The Last Dragon, the racist cop-neighbor in Lakeview Terrace…

  9. ok… 8-( i know this aint gonna be all PC but … why in the heck!! is Nick Furry BLACK!??!?!!? now before yall hammer me for being a racist know this… im not. But Nick Furry was a white dude. and it seems to me the only reason SLJ is playing him is BC of the PC crowed..

    I mean come on.. whats next? a mexican playing obama?

  10. Dude: Black Nick Fury:
