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...?
