…now he’s reportedly signed a nine-picture deal with Marvel Studios to star as Nick Fury in, you guessed it, nine Marvel pictures!
Geeks everywhere who stayed through the end credits of Iron Man saw just a smidgen of him with the eye patch and everything,as Nick Fury, agent of S.H.I.E.L.D. Now, apparently, we’ll all be seeing a lot more than just a smidgen, as he’s supposedly set to appear in Iron Man 2, Captain America, Thor, The Avengers, and S.H.I.E.L.D., as well as four others.
Now, I’m more of a DC guy than a Marvel guy–hell, I’m more of a Vertigo guy than a DC guy, but now I’m just splitting hairs– but I have to admit that I loved Jon Favreau’s Iron Man and even though seeing Nick Fury at the end meant very little to me, this is nevertheless particularly awesome news! I’m looking forward to it. Nine movies of muthafuckin Sam Jackson as muthafuckin Nick Fury!!!! Hold onto your butts!
