Well, this is the best news of the day! It looks like Samuel L. Jackson has made a deal with Marvel in which he will play the role of Nick Fury in 'Iron Man 2' and most likely many other Marvel films! We heard from Jackson himself a while back that no deal was set and he wasn't sure if he was going to be back to take on the role of Nick Fury, it all came down to money. But, I guess he and Marvel worked everything out, and he is good to go! This is great news, when he popped up at the end of 'Iron Man' the crowed went crazy! I think everyone loved to see him play that character. So he is obviously the guy to have in that role. Variety reports:
Jackson's deal is a long-term commitment to play Fury, the leader of the espionage unit the Shield. His deal contains an option to play the character in nine future Marvel superhero films, efforts that are expected to include "Captain America," "Thor," "The Avengers" and "The Shield" as well as potential sequels.
So ther it is! Right their for you in grey and white. We can expect to see Jackson and Fury in potentially nine more Marvel movies! Awesome. Any thoughts?
