Re: The Avengers 2! The Official News and Speculation Thread - Upgrade section 5 -
The problem was that there was already a Nick Fury in the 616 comics. And it wasn't just having a half-black son, but that he happen to lose the exact same eye as Sam Fury, decides to shave his head and grow a beard like Sam Fury. It was blatantly an attempt to have Sam Fury in the 616, which wasn't necessary, there is already a Sam Fury in the Ultimate Universe. Also, the movies copied the comics armor design, not the other way around.
