Yes, Samuel L. Jackson was the basis for a white character who made his first appearance in 1963, when Jackson was 15.
"
Ultimate Nick Fury was based on Jackson

Too old.

#59 Posted by Nighthunter (28582 posts) - - Show Bio

Fury is on his eighties, true he doesn't look that way but still....

How do you sell a war veteran without him looking really old?

Well because the Ultimate Nick Fury is afro-american and in the comics looks 100 % as Samuel L. Jackson,he's good for him, as about the original Marvel Universe in my head theres a picture of Pierce Brosnan.Sure people may laugh at this, but the guy personaly I think would' be a perfect Nick Fury.

Bond? why not

#66 Posted by FallenX (66 posts) - - Show Bio

He allready prove that he can play an agent very well, I don't think it may be too difficult for him to play Nick Fury,but as I heard, Samuel Jackson will play Fury in the upcoming First Avenger:Captain America and in  The Avengers Movie.If they connected the Iron Man movie with the Hulk movie I don't think they gonna' give it up and replace Fury with a white one, but who knows.

Kurt Russell or Viggo Mortensen.

I could actually see Kurt Russell being a pretty good Fury. He's about the right age, IMO, and we already know he looks good with an eyepatch.

How about Al pacino?"

Yeah, i'm old school Nick Fury all the way! Pacino, mmmmm, not really for me!

I could see Kurt, but i'd be thinking Snake Plissken too much with that eye patch! Snake Fury  lol

I love Snake Plissken. He's a little Fury-esque. It's been a while since he played the character though. He's older, and I think he could get Fury's attitude down pat. The eyepatch also works better on Russell than Jackson, IMO.

Blame the eyepatch and the anti-nazi actitude but I could see it

I'm surprised it took 3 pages before someone got to Kurt Russell.  Right age, right build, right height, right face, and a voice that would work well for the part.

I totally agree. I always loved Fury, he was such a badass character. I don't know why they had to make him look like samuel l jackson.  I personally like the Ultimate version head of S.H.I.E.L.D, I think he is a cool character,  but he shouldn't be Nick Fury. Nick Fury is a white man, just like the Kingpin is a white man. Why didn't they say Fury retired/got fired, and that Gabe Jones (black shield agent for those who don't know) is now that head of shield? Maybe they will do a Heroes for Hire and Luke Cage will be played by Triple H.

Well I remember Millar (or was it Bendis?) saying that for him Nick Fury was the ultimate badass and that when they were designing him for the ultimate universe they wanted to use the face of a famous person, they decided that the only guy badass enough to be Nick Fury was Samuel L. Jackson

#85 Posted by The Sharp Dressed Lady (285 posts) - - Show Bio

Well, The Hoff definitely had it down. Clint Eastwood would have been good, but Nick is kept younger now. Maybe Clint with CGI. Burt Reynolds or Charles Bronson would have been awesome, too!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Now, if you said Josh Hartnett, you'd be on the right track to something big!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Also, Tom Cruise... Brad Pitt... Ben Affleck... Viggo Mortensen... AND... Ryan Reynolds... are contenders to that something big!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! 8D




#86 Posted by The Sharp Dressed Lady (285 posts) - - Show Bio

You know, as mentioned, Brad Pitt, Ben Affleck and Dennis Quaid would each be pretty darn good in this role. Just saying.


But, I'm still with Josh Hartnett for Nick Fury!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! 8D



#87 Posted by Nova`Prime` (4165 posts) - - Show Bio

Much to young. Nick needs to be gritty, he needs to have some age on him. He doesn't look thirty, he looks more forty. Dennis Quad would make an awesome Fury, if he can do General Hawk he can do Fury.

#88 Posted by The Sharp Dressed Lady (285 posts) - - Show Bio

Ya, but with a little make-up, like on the grey hair, he IS an actor and a VERY good one, he COMPLETELY BECOMES NICK FURY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! 8O


AND the VOICE, the HEIGHT, the BUILD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! EVERYTHING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! 8O

8D

If they would make a  serious spy thriller (which would not happen ever) then Thomas Jane would be perfect. As stupid as it may sound I now think he would make better Nick Fury than Punisher.
 
There were some pictures with Thomas Jane as Nick Fury and they were fabulous.

I threw Viggo Mortensen's name out quite some time ago along with Kurt Russell and decided to post how he looked with the eye patch.  I don't have photo shop on my computer so had to do it old school.

Like others have said, Kurt Russell would be a really awesome Nick Fury.
