No Nick Fury Action Until The Avengers, Says Sam Jackson
Aw, damn! Jon Favreau is currently finishing up the last few weeks of principal photography on Iron Man 2. We expect to see a lot of exciting footage at the San Diego Comic-Con, but I'm certain we won't be seeing any of Samuel Jackson in that footage. MTV talked with Jackson recently and asked him how big his role as Nick Fury is in Iron Man 2. When asked if we get to see him in any action scenes at all, he unfortunately admitted, "Not this time, not yet." Jackson adds, "We still haven't moved Nick Fury into the bad-ass zone. He's still just kind of a talker." So then maybe action in The Avengers? "Looking forward to that, yeah."
Okay, so we know that Nick Fury barely showed up in the first Iron Man at the very end of the credits, and he wasn't even in The Incredible Hulk at all. But Samuel Jackson is signed on for 9 frickin' Marvel movies! And I know this guy kicks some ass in the comics, I've seen him fight. Maybe it's better that they don't rush into it, you know, don't show all your cards at once. Alas, we won't have any Nick Fury action in Iron Man 2, which will just make his action debut in The Avengers all the more sweeter. Though Jackson did confirm that he has scenes with Robert Downey Jr. and Scarlett Johansson. It looks like S.H.E.I.L.D. is growing.
