Hilary Swank and Samuel Jackson Iron Man Appearances Confirmed!
Back in late June, we posted a short bit of news that the one-and-only Samuel Jackson would be appearing in the upcoming Iron Man as Nick Fury. There were other rumors floating around that Oscar winning actress Hilary Swank would have a cameo, too. After much skepticism, the rumors have finally been confirmed - both Jackson and Swank are in Iron Man!
The confirmation comes from Marvel mega-producer Avi Arad via an interview at MTV, who was shocked to hear that both of these secret cameos had already hit the streets. "The Sam thing was supposed to be the biggest secret of them all. It's amazing how it got out." As for the details, and whether Sam Jackson actually IS Nick Fury or just a random character, and the same for Hilary Swank, is still unconfirmed. And that won't likely ever been confirmed until the film hits theaters on May 2nd in 2008.
This film is getting much more exciting by the minute. I personally can't wait for the Marvel panel on Saturday at Comic-Con where Iron Man will have its major debut of footage and much more. I think it may be the biggest movie of next year, and this is the week where it'll all kick off. Stay tuned!
