Like Nick Fury of SHIELD? Well Hollywood Has You Covered
— Ace

Sam Jackson's signed to play the super-commando in up to nine different movies.

The movies include Iron Man 2, Thor, Captain America, The Avengers and at least one sequel each, PLUS the possibility of fast-tracking a S.H.I.E.L.D. movie -- which is said to already be in development.

Thanks to DavidR.

1 SHIELD the movie? yeah America is full of dirty cops so why not degrade them all by making a big screen movie about them.

2 Lots a lot of mother fuckin sequels on his mother fuckin calendar.

3 So, is Dum Dum Dugan going to be a woman or hispanic or both? (Yes, I know: this is based on the "Ultimate" versino of Nick Fury, blahblahblah.)

4 Kaptain, it's S.H.I.E.L.D, not The Shield... they are two different things.  One was a comic book, and the other was an FX series.

Posted by: Watcher at February 27, 2009 10:03 AM (K4ybe)

5 Kap, you're confusing The Shield, the TV series about corrupt detective Vic Makey, with S.H.I.E.L.D., the Marvel Comic about a secret agent organization led by Nick Fury.

6 Kap, your confusing Shield on FX with S.H.I.E.L.D. from the comic books.

(I'm really just trying to make it 3 in a row)

After "The Dark Knight" all other comic book movies are unnecessary.

8 I think that you are confusing The Shield with S.H.I.E.L.D

9 By the way, Samuel L. Jackson isn't nearly as cool as the nerds think he is.

Posted by: Kensington at February 27, 2009 10:09 AM (90mpl)

10 Samuel L. Jackson is playing me?  Cool!

Posted by: Vic Mackey at February 27, 2009 10:09 AM (90mpl)

11 Samuel L Jackson is so motha fuckin overrated. 

Did anybody else think it was kind of strange when he went off about how special a friend Kenny Chesney is during the grammys?  I think him and Chesney are VERY special friends IYKWIMAITYD

President gives a big speech on Iraq, and you're talking about a comic character?  Shows how off in the wilderness you are.

For the record, though, I have no problem with Sam Jackson playing Nick Fury.  It's not about color, it's about attitude.

It was about flat until Barry spoke and afterwards it's down just over 100. It's an odd Pavlovian response to his voice.

Actually, you're talking about the comic character.

Tragically comic.

22 That and the govt is totally -not- nationalizing banks. They just have a 40% stake in citi. So what was anyone worried about?

Posted by: lorien1973 at February 27, 2009 10:27 AM (IhQuA)

23 Wait.. I though Nick Fury was a white dude?

Posted by: AndrewGurn at February 27, 2009 10:30 AM (BX9uS)

24 Also, though = thought

Posted by: AndrewGurn at February 27, 2009 10:30 AM (BX9uS)

25 When writer Brian Michael Bendis recreated the Marvel Universe in the late 90s (via a series of comics called "Ultimate". i.e., "Ultimate Spider-Man," "Ultimate X-Men," "Ultimate Fantastic Four", "The Ultimates" (a recretation of The Avengers)), he made Nick Fury a black man, and apparently did so with Samuel L. Jackson in mind.

So there is still a white Nick Fury, but all the comic book buzz is on the Ultimate version, who is black.

Posted by: Kensington at February 27, 2009 10:33 AM (90mpl)

26 There's only one man to play Nick Fury.

Posted by: nickless at February 27, 2009 10:34 AM (MMC8r)

27 Well, I noticed that no one had mentioned the skin color of either the character or the actor until icus the Concerned Liberal came along.

31 Does anyone remember Sergeant Fury and his Howling Commandos? I read them in the 5th and 6th grade. That was 1964-1966, so figure out my age, kids.

Posted by: Glenn Cassel AMH1(AW) USN RET at February 27, 2009 10:42 AM (zvC8Z)

32 Uhh, isn't nick fury white?

Posted by: Johnny at February 27, 2009 10:46 AM (xVKXy)

33 That Sgt. Fury is the same Nick Fury who went on to run S.H.I.E.L.D.

34 "President gives a big speech on Iraq, and you're talking about a comic character?  Shows how off in the wilderness you are."

Oh, sometimes it's pleasant just to have a diversion from The One's latest imbecility. I do hope he shuts up before the market busts through 6,000.

Jackson as Nick Fury? Naah. He's more a sidekick type; Frozone in "The Incredibles" was perfect for him.

Dude, you couldn't read 31 comments?  Most of which are just snarky one-liners?  The answer is there.

38 Well, I noticed that no one had mentioned the skin color of either the character or the actor until icus the Concerned Liberal came along.

That's because we're all aware that this is Ultimate Nick Fury and he's black.  We pay attention to the important things. 

Frozone was kickass.

42 Does anyone remember Sergeant Fury and his Howling Commandos?

Yes, but I always liked my war comics gritty, hence I preferred Sgt. Rock.  Nick Fury was too cartoony for me.

Posted by: DelD at February 27, 2009 11:10 AM (HYdva)

43 I was just reading a book on Jack Kirby last month and it said that Kirby's basis for Nick Fury was....himself.

Posted by: nickless at February 27, 2009 11:15 AM (MMC8r)

44 S.H.I.E.L.D. vs. The Shield caught me off guard, unaware of the Marvel till now, and a big fan of the TV series from Netflix; my brain crossed Nick into Vic.

I like Jackson's acting; he has a strong presence. I wonder if he'll ever out do his performance in Pulp Fiction; that role was great for him.






Posted by: maverick muse at February 27, 2009 11:21 AM (qHQmV)

45 Damn, what a smack in the face.

Sam Jackson has to follow the legendary actor David Hasselhoff as Nick Fury.

53 Unfortunately, Captain America will have Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, and the Falcon will be a community organizer. Also, the Red Skull will just be Dick Cheney after a few shots of Jameson.
I think Oliver Stone is directing.

Posted by: joh at February 27, 2009 03:14 PM (1DPb/)

54 I must not be quite the nerd I think I am because my reaction is generally "Nick Fury, who?"

But I like the comic book movies a whole lot.   Sure, some are better than others.   When isn't that true?  

I just re-watched Iron Man.   Fabulous.

I might as well ask this question here...  As a Watchmen virgin, where should my virginity go?   Save it for the movie?   Or give it away to the graphic novel?

Posted by: Synova at February 27, 2009 03:14 PM (NxP4A)

55 Synova-Graphic novel, then movie.  Preferably on the same day if you read fast.  Consider it a marathon session of nerdery.

For the love of all things holy, read the comics first. No matter how good a movie may be the comics are always better. To whom would you rather lose your virginity: your one true love on your wedding night or your drunk pervy uncle?

And, yes, I did call them comics and not "graphic novels" which is pretentious bullshit. AI'm honest about my nerditude.

During the first "Ultimates" limited series members of the Ulltimates (Ultimate version of the Avengers) were joking about which actor they would like to portray them in the movies. Nick Fury's answer: "Who else? Samuel L. Jackson."

 

Life imitating art.

60 Dennis Miller interviewed Stan Lee once and he said Kirby told Stan that he can make make a good comic no matter how lame its title and in response made up the title "Sgt. Fury and His Howling Commandos" and the rest is history.

62 Samuel L Jackson?  Is Wesley Snipes unavailable?  Is Steven Segal too fat?  Jean Claude Van Damme too dramatic?

I wouldn't spend money to watch it, but it will be on Cinemax and probably soon.  Samuel L Jackson, huh?

Posted by: MarkD at February 28, 2009 03:25 AM (VI20d)

63 Iron Man. Thor. Captain America. But Ant Man a/k/a Giant Man a/k/a Goliath a/k/a Yellowjacket a/k/a Dr. Henry Pym and the sexalicious Wasp get nary a mention, much less a movie of their own. No respect, no respect at all.
