Nick Fury: Samuel L. Jackson
Has that been confirmed, though? There has been talk that Jackson might not come back as Fury.
when Iron Man 2
was going into pre-production.
Samuel L. Jackson is Marvel's man.
The actor, who just weeks ago was seemingly on the outs with the studio over reprising his role as Nick Fury, agent of spy outfit S.H.I.E.L.D., has signed an unprecedented nine-picture deal to play the character in a series of Marvel movies.
The movies include "Iron Man 2," "Thor," "Captain America," "The Avengers" and its sequels.
Also on the table is the possibility of toplining a "S.H.I.E.L.D." movie, which is in development.
I think you just recall the talk of him not returning as Fury(for IM:2) and then *BAM* a few weeks later he signed the above deal. I tried a google search for 'Jackson out as Fury' and similar and the only articles that came up were the ones prior to him signing the 9 pic deal.
Sam is confirmed for sure.
