Samuel L. Jackson won’t have to worry about getting work for a while. He just signed a 9-picture deal with Marvel to play the role of Nick Fury in a series of their movies.
Just weeks ago it sounded like Jackson was on the outs and wasn’t going to play the role in Iron Man 2, But they must have come to some sort of agreement to have gone from zero to nine!
The movies Jackson will now be appearing in are Iron Man 2, Thor, Captain America, The Avengers, and all of their sequels. This is really generous considering the bad rap Marvel has been getting lately.
Terrence Howard couldn’t work out a good contract with them, and was replaced by Don Cheadle. And we’re heard talk about Mickey Rourke joining the cast, but he’s been in negotiations for two months without still having a contract. We’re just glad Marvel signed Jackson for so many movies so we don’t have the same thing happening that did to Terrence Howard.
