    Jackson Signs Nine-Picture Deal to Play Nick Fury!

    Samuel L. Jackson has buried the hatchet with Marvel Entertainment, making a deal to play the role of Nick Fury in Iron Man 2, and potentially many other films.

    Jackson's deal is a long-term commitment to play Fury, the leader of the espionage unit S.H.I.E.L.D. His deal contains an option to play the character in nine future Marvel superhero films, efforts that are expected to include The First Avenger: Captain America, Thor, The Avengers, toplining a possible S.H.I.E.L.D. movie, and potential sequels.

    Jackson introduced Fury in the closing moments of Iron Man, when the character asked Robert Downey Jr.'s Tony Stark to join his group.

    Judas Priest! Nine?! :eek:
    I know the prospects for such are slim, but I like the ambition in even referencing that number.

    I never saw Jackson's potential absence as a 'the sky is falling' scenario, but I'm glad this has been worked out.

    Now all we need is for Howard to come back on board, not that I have anything against Cheadle, but Howard was embodied Starks right hand man more.

    Lobo, can you copy this into the Marvel Movies thread as well, since it's technically gonna be news considering every other Marvel flick after IM2.

    What was this about Marvel low-balling all the actors and screwing them out of the movie?

    I thought Samuel L. Jackson was gone according to some posters here.

    Yeah, Samuel L Jackson himself saying he may not be reprising the role of Nick Fury can lead to people jumping to groundless conclusions. :whatever:

    Why is there always someone who has to spoil good news by gloating about it?

    Glad to see Marvel and Sam come to an agreement, I'm a big fan of the Ultimate Nick Fury and was super thrilled to see him in Iron Man, Favreau indicated that Fury would have a much bigger role and it would not be cool seeing someone as Fury.

    A Nick Fury, or SHIELD movie would be 6, plus potential sequels to that, and Avengers sequels.
