Samuel L. Jackson...IRON MAN 2...

Merrick here...
After Samuel L. Jackson's 'if you blink you'll miss it' appearance in IRON MAN, many fans asked an obvious question: would Sam even appear in IRON MAN sequels, or would we only see him again if THE AVENGERS movie happened. IESB just round tabled with Jackson, who said Favreau had just spoken to him about the forthcoming sequel.
Favreau told Jackson that Nick Fury would have a much more prominent role in the second one.
..says THIS ARTICLE at IESB. And, as IESB accurately notes, it wouldn't take much at all to make Jackson's role "more prominent" than it was in the first one. Lest we forget what Sam's up against, here's the performance he must best in order to become the *real* Nick Fury:

    Dare I speak blasphemy?

    by Royston Lodge

    I really don't think Nick Fury will translate well to the big screen, and here's the ironic/counter-intuitive reason why: Nick Fury is too much like a traditional action movie character. Fury, SHIELD, etc. It's pretty much the basic "Secret Government Spy Agency" story. To me, SHIELD was just a way for Marvel to get an action movie archetype we've seen a bajillion times before into their comic books. That's not a criticism as SHIELD is a big and great part of the Marvel Universe. But to then take a well-worn movie archetype that was simply (IMHO) recycled for the comic books, and then recycle it again onto the big screen will result in "merely" yet another spy/action movie, albeit one set in the Marvel Universe. I just don't see how to make a big-screen version of the archetype that's fresh and original. Fans have FINALLY been given the version of James Bond that we've been craving, thanks to Daniel Craig. It's asking too much for Nick Fury to compete with that. (Dislaimer time!) With respect, of course... That's just my humble opinion... Based on controlled laboratory experiments... Your mileage may vary...

    Samuel L. Jackson Is Now A Joke Of His Own Making!!!

    by Media Messiah

    As he appeared on the screen in Iron Man, I felt nothing except for the fact that his appearance suddenly made the film seem cheap!!! Why??? Because Sam Jackson will take any film now, quality doesn't matter, all that matters is the size of the paycheck. His name being associated with a film now means horrible things, where it once meant quality, and called to you to support it!!! He has delivered nothing but soft performances in his last dozen plus films, if you can even call them performances...and if you can even call them films, as they are awful??? <BR><BR>His career has now become a joke, as well as much of his acting, all by his own hand...the hand of greed and gluttony!!! And for a man who used to be one of the most respected actors in the business, if not the most respected actor, that is a mighty big fall to take, indeed!!!

  • Oct. 20, 2008, 2:20 p.m. CST

    it's not his fault he's a joke


    well, maybe it is. everyone that directs him probably says- give us what you gave us as jules in pulp fiction'...and he can refuse to, but he doesn't. he could turn it down a notch or refuse a few of these blatant typecasts.

    IF you need to be reminded that Sam Jackson can act.

    by Royston Lodge

    Go out and rent The Red Violin, in which Samuel L. Jackson plays a violin expert contracted by an auction house to appraise a shipment of very rare violins, violas, and cellos that have recently been discovered in China. He doesn't drop the MF bomb once in the entire movie, the flick's about violins, and STILL he manages to come off as bad-ass. The look of disbelief that he gives this other expert when the other expert says that he'd like to disassemble a priceless violin to see how it was made is just priceless. It's like he says Muthafucka with his eyes!

    Who said they're casting against source material..?

    by CeejayNightwing

    The version of the Avengers and specifically Nick Fury is partially based on the 'ULTIMATES' universe of Marvel comics. In that timeline or universe, Nick Fury is a black man and looks like Sam Jackson. The artists who drew that comic based his appearance on Sam Jackson so it's only natural he should play the part of this version of Nick Fury. D.Hasselhoff's version of Nick Fury is the classic version of the comic character, that version is not as realistically delivered in the comics as the Ultimate line of stories have managed to deliver with its version of superheroes and that's why they've not gone with it for the movie.

    UM yeah...didn't need a whole "Comic Book Guy from the Simpsons" dissertation on the history of the Nick Fury Character. In "Marvel Apes" Captain America is a Gorilla. That doesn't mean he should be a gorilla in the movie. My comment was really just a knock at Hasselhoff... I know about the Ultimate version...but that version as well was created AGAINST the source material's character's race...thus still making my comment accurate. I meant against the original version of the character...I'm just not comic-nerdy enough to care about explaining that in detail.

    Nick Fury and stunt casting

    by Mosquito March

    Didn't they already do that when they cast Angelina Jolie as a female Nick Fury in SKY CAPTAIN? Once they knew they had Downey for Stark and Norton for Banner, they should have kept a certain level of class and thrown money at Clooney to be the classic Nick Fury. Sam Jackson was in fucking SNAKES ON A PLANE and JUMPER, for chrissakes. Lucas pulled the same shit with Mace Windu. "Hey, I'm making a new STAR WARS! Let's hire Liam Neeson, Ewan McGregor, Natalie Portman, and...Samuel L. Jackson..." Whop-wah...

    I wont go that far...

    by Steepdog1

    I have to actually agree with Ceejay that Jackson being the actual basis for at least one comic version of the character kinda exempts him from being "stunt casting." That' almost like saying casting John Malcovich in "Being John Malcovich" was stunt casting. While I agree Clooney would make decent "Classic" Fury, I have no problem with Jackson in the part.

  • Oct. 20, 2008, 5:57 p.m. CST

    So, it was stunt casting in the comic, too.

    I kind of hate that we're stuck with a Jackson Fury just because of the Ultimates, and just because Jackson is always available for everything and anything.

    Sam Jackson is a Joke

    by SnakePlissken711

    Ever since I heard his racist comments on the DEEP BLUE SEA DVD I have been laughing every time Samuel L. Jackson comes up. The man is a joke. He's got one act = acting mean & angry, preferably so he can drop his f-bombs or better yet mother-fucking bombs. The fact that he claims he's is the second baddest ass in the universe after Yoda in the Star Wars prequels shows how much this man believes in his own shit. Mace Windu? Fuckin' Jar Jar Binks had more purpose in the entire prequel trilogy than this wannabe-Jedi master. Bad motherfucka = that's what Samuel L. had inscribed on the bottom of his lightsaber handle. This man is a joke as an actor and he's and he's an offensive racist. Forget Mel Gibson Jew bashing - Samuel L. takes the cake for delivering the "black power" racist movement. You want to see a great African American actor who can act? Morgan Freeman. Sidney Poitier. Laurence Fishburne. Forest Whittaker. Not Samule L. Jackson. Jackson, like Will Smith comes from the school of attitude. That which means, I am a tough-bad-ass so don't mess with me. The entire movie SNAKES ON A PLANE is bar-none the worst big-budget studio picture ever made (and I love B-pictures!). Let's not forget Samuel L. is an ex-crack addict and did prison time and if I am not mistaken it's one of the reasons Scorsese cast him in GOODFELLAS. I don't know him personally, but if his fans love him it's because they wannabe a "bad-ass" like him and it has nothing at all to do with acting performance or talent.

    but you guys know Goyer wrote that Shield Tv movie right? Further proof, he needs a strong director to weed out his good ideas from his bad ones. And Ive caught it on Scifi a few times. It looks crappy but it was kinda dumb fun.

    Did AICN say anything about Howard?

    by half vader

    Dunno if I missed it - I mean the fact that this whole thing is news to him. Dark Horizons says he knows nothing about any pay dispute. What gives?

    Nick Fury

    by Nasty_Nick

    I wonder how he'll fit into the story of the next one. Will he and Stark be seen recruiting for their Team. It might be cool to see them go head to head.

    by Stalkeye

    This is a BAD idea

    by Reelheed

    The whole Avengers movie concept needs to be set-up with subtle pointers and if Tony Stark is now a government hired gun based on the activities in the first film - what? One scrap in the middle east and getting his ass handed to him on a highway - its going to feel really thin. Now if he was just developing/building SHIELD tech that I might buy...

    SLJ = The New Tommy Lee Jones

    by ArcadianDS

    Remember when Tommy Lee Jones was showing up in EVERY SINGLE MOVIE BEING MADE? When he finally went balls out stupid and played two face, he was never to be seen or heard from again.<p> I predict a similar fate for mister Sam Jackson.

    by grendel san

    To those who rag on Samuel L. Jackson, you realize that he's starred in some of the highest grossing films of all time? Say what you will about him, but I find his work to be enjoyable. And Sam Jackson as Nick Fury could kick all kinds of ass.

  • Oct. 21, 2008, 10:43 a.m. CST

    Just Give Jackson the lead in a Shield film already....

    by j2talk

    it could be the start of an American James Bond style franchise....

    Iron Man 2 could either be fantastic because of this, or diluted with Cheadleness. Depends on the script.

    Sam Jackson does anything for money because...

    by offscauta

    he spent a very long time without it, I'd guess. But he lost all credibility when he became the voice of the KFC commercials. Nobody can be that hard up. Maybe he just doesn't want to work forever, so is taking all the money he can while it's being offered.

    "Iron Man 2" needs to be rated R!

    War Machine design photos!

    by Gusmer

    Has anybody seen the 3 design photos they have in Yahoo's article on Howard getting the boot? There are actual concept designs (property of Paramount) of what seems to be War Machine (in the article, they even mention that they are concept designs for him). Granted, 2 of them are similar to the Mark II suit. But the one with the shoulder cannon? Too much of a coincidence!!! Have they appeared before???
