Samuel Jackson's gonna be wearing that eyepatch for awhile


There's good news for Marvel fans everywhere, even if you don't like Samuel Jackson (He's a lot better than David Hasslehoff imo). Variety announced yesterday that Samuel has signed on to be Nick Fury in Iron Man 2 as well as possibly being in another 9 Marvel films. There's been some drama between Marvel and Samuel since he didn't want to come back for a 2nd Iron Man even though he's been in much stupider movies. Rumors have been going around that Marvel's been trying to underpay their actors, so that's probably why. Anyway, fans are speculating what these 9 movies will be, although some of the major theories involve films about Captain America, Thor, The Avengers and The Shield (DUH!). None of these movies are super exciting to me, but I'm sure they'll still be mildly entertaining.

In order to speculate better about what movies Marvel plans on making, I looked up Nick Fury's appearance history. He does have a lot of appearances in the X-men storyline, which makes me even more sad that they've already made a huge flop trilogy out of it. I guess there's a possibility of Fury showing up in X-Men Origins: Wolverine, especially because of the recent mention of re-shoots. Going along with that, I'm sure Nick Fury ran into Magneto and Professor X back in the day too. So, maybe Fury will also make an appearance in X-Men Origins: Magneto that's currently planned for 2011 (even though there's not a green light on it yet). Personally I'm all for the new X-Men movies, so any news about further Marvel movies is good news :D.

X-Men Origins: Magneto ... Well, that sounds like it could be possibly horrifying. I'm still going to be interested to see how they plan on making Thor interesting.

I agree with you that Magneto's past is horrifying, but I also think it'd be cool to see more tiny Magneto and some tiny Professor X.

I want to see Magneto Origins and Samuel L. Jackson is pretty good, even if he's played in some obnoxious super-hype movies. Eventually they have to make a Black Panther movie, and then, they need to make a Storm movie, cause she is the Queen of Wakanda now, they just have to... *please*

Oh, I didn't mention before, they need to recast Storm as someone who can act a bit more like a super-hero, sorry Halle Barry, you're just the female Will Smith...
