Sam Jackson not to playing Nick Fury?

January 14, 2009

After his great cameo at the end of Iron Man I think that everyone was looking forward to seeing Samuel L. Jackson getting a bit more screen time in future Marvel movies. However that prospect seemed a little less likely today after a clearly angry Jackson told the LA Times:

“There was a huge kind of negotiation that broke down. I don’t know. Maybe I won’t be Nick Fury. Maybe somebody else will be Nick Fury or maybe Nick Fury won’t be in it. There seems to be an economic crisis in the Marvel Comics world so [they’re saying to me], ‘We’re not making that deal.'”

I’m sure if Jackson wasn’t to get on board this would be a huge dissapointment to both Marvel and the fans – however it’s early days yet and hopefully a settlement will be reached.
