Sam Jackson Talks SHIELD Movie?

Posted by No_name_here (1223 posts) - - Show Bio
 Remember me?

A SHIELD movie, huh? Sam Jackson’s put it out there. In an interview with Radio Bigboy (by way of Digital Spy) he said that there will probably be a big movie about the Strategic Homeland Intervention, Enforcement and Logistics Division coming together some time after THE AVENGERS movie shoots next year.  I kind of figured that the Avengers movie basically would be a SHIELD movie.

The funny thing is, we kind of already saw a live-action SHIELD movie last year with GI:JOE - - THE RISE OF COBRA because GI: JOE actually started off as proposal for a new SHIELD series in the late 70s that was to star Nick Fury’s son. At the time, Marvel had a relationship with Hasbro, so when the toy company came calling for a comic series to give a story to their new action figure line, Marvel’s team re-worked the unused SHIELD pitch. There definitely are a number of strong enduring parallels… Fury Jr. probably became Duke, General Hawk could easily be Fury himself, Destro has a lot in common with Baron von Strucker, the Baroness bears some resemblance to Madame Viper and Cobra & Hydra having pretty similar M.O.’s.

Anyway, whenever we’ve got a prospective comic movie on the docket, it’s always fun to start a fantasy casting call. Putting the David Hasslehoff 90s movie aside for a moment (just a moment), let’s start throwing out some names of actors who could play Dum Dum Dugan, G.W. Bridge and the aforementioned Viper and Baron von Strucker, because it's pretty obvious that any movie would be about a war with Hydra. Also, is it just me or were you getting some serious mandroid-vibes off of Whiplash’s drones in IM2? I could see them being folded into this. But would you maniacs in the Comic Vine community want to see this? An entire movie about agent Phil Coulson and his co-workers without any other superhero involved?

What?   
 
A S.H.I.E.L.D. movie!?     
 
What!? 
 
G.I. Joe was a spin-off of S.H.I.E.L.D.?
 
That's just Crazy Sauce!

Anyone else want to see David Hasselhoff make a cameo as a malfunctioning LMD?

#4 Posted by Jordanstine (907 posts) - - Show Bio

Btw, I know Marvel used to print G.I. Joe comics for Hasbro (and Transformers ) just for licensing purposes right? 
 
Crazy question: since the creation of G.I. Joe was indirectly related to S.H.I.E.L.D., do they have no form of secondary ownership of those titles?

If this isn't going to have any super-heroes star, then it should be done as a grittier spy/war flick, and the presence of Baron Strucker and HYDRA will be what makes or breaks it.

Just because it doesn't have the Avengers doesn't mean it won't have super-heroes. Black Widow, Hawkeye, Mockingbird could all be cool. There's also people like She-Hulk, Spider-Woman, Ms. Marvel and even Jessica Jones who've been SHIELD agents. This could be a good way to introduce other characters that could be incorporated into the Avengers later like Photon and Tigra (though they haven't been SHIELD agents really they have been law-enforcement officers)

If they do it as a (lightly based on the superhero side of things)  Superhero based espionage thriller and have this for older viewers I'm in

Isn't The Avengers basically a SHIELD movie? 

#13 Posted by The WeatherMan (3214 posts) - - Show Bio

Sounds like a fun gig, but I think after Cap's movie, Thor's movie, Avengers and Iron man 3 it could be an overkill.

I do not think I would like a shield movie.

#15 Posted by sandyp3000 (17 posts) - - Show Bio

not for anything, but Samuel plays a horrible Nick Fury. 
Not looking forward to a SHIELD movie starring Samuel with an eye patch on, with quirky comments like in his Iron man appearances. it just doesnt feel like Nick

I'm not too big on his version of Nick Fury either.

Can I haz Abomination cameo? I wanna see them going through the super-high tech prison cells.

Interesting and I wouldn't mind going down that line once we get through a couple more Marvel Movies. I'd rather see these than movies for Ant-Man/Giant Man and some other characters of lesser note.

 I just really wish the S.H.I.E.L.D. Movie stars not only Nick Fury but characters like Carol Danvers, Jessica Drew, Jessica Jones, Walter Lawson (Cap Marvel), Dum Dum Dugan, Abigail Brand, Pietro and Wanda Maximoff, Bobbi Morse, Maria Hill and Clint Barton...
all besides Black Widow and Phil Coulson!
 
I want to see that SHIELD field team... or something similar!
 
It would be like a mini team of Avengers before actually reaching the big ranks!

A S.H.I.E.L.D movie? Well, it could make a good spy or thriller film. Like Mission Impossible if it were set in the Marvel Universe.

I'm not to big on marvel at all these days. Samuel makes a good Jedi, but I agree, a bad Nick Fury. Fury is difficult to cast, maybe Clint Eastwood could have done it right if he was younger?

Fully agree. I think a Shield movie would be a cool way to introduce more superhero characters and lesser known heros as well. Diora Baird for Ms. Marvel!

For some reason this screams to me gearing up for a Civil War movie. I may be jumping the gun, like SERIOUS pole vault jump. In anycase, I never found S.H.I.E.L.D. that interesting until Jackson played Fury.  So I'd be game for it.

Avengers is about the Avengers. Shield just happens to be apart of it. Im excited for this. I hope it isnt with Hydra but i know it will be. And itll be WAYY better than GI Joe. GI Joe wasnt good.

Well I mean...it's not really rocket science. Cobra is totally just Hydra.

I'm with you here. If there is a SHIELD movie it would be a great place to introduce a lot of charcters. Especially the two that i love Bobbi and Clint Barton and the same goes for Ms. Marvel and others. Just something to go on for everyone and to mention characters that shouldn't be left out of Avenger titles and maybe lead into there own movies later or bigger parts if they have some.

if sam jackson is talking about shield movie...why is there a picture of david hasselhof posted on the story page? Couldnt you find a pic of sam jackson? 
 
People don't have a problem with green, blue, gray, or red characters but when it comes to black characters they are all uptight.
 
evolve people...it's 2010.

I would love to see Tim Bradstreets shield outfit designs used in this movie.  And if Strucker is going to make his debut in film, I would love no one more than John Malkovich to play him. 

Really dig these SHIELD uniforms

@moxie-lane:  Yeah most of those characters were SHIELD agents once or another... so an all out intro to these characters would allow to see which characters are the most popular, and which are able to handle their individual movie later on... and of course later join the ranks of the Avengers!

I would watch this movie if it was about the creation of SHIELD, how Fury lost his eye, and his relationship with Tony Stark's father.  Also I think Jim Beaver, Bobby Singer on Supernatural, would make a great Dum Dum Doogan.

#40 Posted by Thor'sHammer (67 posts) - - Show Bio

I can see this film as a spy/action thriller a la Mission impossible.  It may be cliche, but you could easily have a terrorist attack on American soil spark a response from S.H.I.E.L.D.  I hope they avoid the new Shield series and most of the Ultimate stuff and stick to the classic Steranko/Lee style.  I think they need to re-work Samuel l. Fury's becuase he has to have more than just smart-ass one-liners.  Also this movie should be confusing, with lots of LMDs, betrayals, and sexual leverage.

I wonder if Tom Cruise would fit into a SHIELD movie.

Well i too thought Avenger's would be a lot about sheild. And another thing did anyone else think that Iron Man 1 was better than the second???

Hell yeah I would want that to happen. And if there's a Suicide Squad movie to counter them, so much the better.

Samuel Jackson is a terrible nick fury !!! 
Like why did they have to make him the token  
But most marvel movies these days seem like they've been based on the ultimate universe  
A SHIELD movie should work as long as they have Hawkeye, mockingbird and black widow
