Looks like Samuel Jackson got his way, and then some.  Variety has just reported that the actor has signed a deal with Marvel to play Nick Fury in "Iron Man 2" and a whole bunch of other possible movies.
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.

Wait, what?  "The Shield"?  Is that a movie on the making of Captain America's shield?  So what could the nine movies be?  In the quote is four (if you count whatever "The Shield" is).  We'll have Iron Man 2 and 3.  That makes six.  Another Hulk movie?  Seven.  Wasn't there talk of an Ant-Man movie?  Eight.  What's number nine?  "Power Pack"? 

Either way, this is good news.  No mention on how much money will be passing hands and whether or not a new deal was made or if Sam just took the previously offered amount.  I like Sam Jackson.  I don't think he's crucial to the role or movies but it's good to keep some things consistent.

So what could that ninth movie be...?

and here I thought you were joking about now knowing what shield would be, I've never read any Nick Fury comics (apart from Weapon X #14) but I've always automatically linked him to SHIELD

Nine future movies, hmmmm.
1.) Iron Man 2
2.) Thor
3.) Captain America
4.) The Ulti... err... Avengers
5.) Nick Fury: Agent of SHIELD
6.) Possible Hulk sequel
7.) Ant-Man
8.) Possible Captain America sequel
9.) Iron Man 3

Don't really know why he would be in the Thor movie, though....

Hopefully they can get all these films in before he hits 70 years old

Samuel L. Jackson is one of my favorite actors ever since I saw Pulp Fiction as a little kid. I'm all for seeing him constantly on upcoming movies.

NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!

The most overrated actor of ALL MOTHER F#$%ING TIME!

#37 Posted by Toastalchemist (169 posts) - - Show Bio

I think "the sheild" is a Nick Fury solo movie, since he works for shield and all.

#38 Posted by The_MVPs (84694 posts) - - Show Bio

Looks like he knew what he was doing when he bulked on returning as Iron Man 2. Seems I remember someone saying something about it back then. Glad it all got worked out. 9 movies, damn, that's alot of Marvel.

He's not really overrated.People know he's not the best actor in the world..nor is his performance in every movie worth mentioning..but you have to admit...he has a certain presence in a movie that makes it worth watching.Snakes on a plane was like the 4th worst movie I have ever seen in my entire life...but you know why I watched it..because Samuel .L made the movie something to watch.
