We’re ’bout to see a bunch of Samuel L. Jackson. Remember how he briefly appeared after the Iron Man credits as Nick Furry hinting at Marvel’s future? Well, he just signed a huge deal that will place him in nine upcoming Marvel films, effectively creating a huge Marvel universe. Tight.
Not all the films have been announced yet, but so far they include Iron Man 2, Thor, Captain America, The Avengers(!!!), and perhaps even a S.H.I.E.L.D movie with Jackson as the lead. We can’t wait to see what Stan Lee and Co. do with the Nick Fury role. Having this particular character link all the superhero movies together should (hopefully) create an immensely a deep storyline. We cannot wait to see how this pans out but the 61 year old Jackson should start sipping on some of that Infinity Formula tonight; he’s going to need it.
BTW, be thankful that David Hasselhoff isn’t reprising his 1998 role as Nick Fury; the overall sentiment would be a tad different.
