Sound and Fury? Jackson on secret war behind the scenes

Classic Dungeons & Dragons back in print! - Available now @ Dungeon Masters Guild

Ultimate Marvel Nick FuryLast summer, comic book fans shared a simultaneous nerdgasm when Samuel L. Jackson appeared briefly at the end of Iron Man as Marvel’s Nick Fury, superspy leader of S.H.I.E.L.D.

This led to the expectation that Jackson would reprise the role for Iron Man 2, The First Avenger: Captain America and The Avengers.

Now Jackson tells L.A. Times blogger Geoff Boucher:

“I don’t know. Maybe I won’t be Nick Fury. Maybe somebody else will be Nick Fury or maybe Nick Fury won’t be in it. There seems to be an economic crisis in the Marvel Comics world.”

It sounds like Jackson and director Jon Favreau are on the same page and ready to roll, but the people handling the negotiations aren’t seeing eye to eye. If this casting coup falls through it will be a huge blow to fans. A recent reinterpretation of the character for Ultimate Marvel was based on Jackson’s likeness, with his permission. Realizing that on the big screen is the natural next step.
