    Sam Jackson No Longer Nick Fury (January 14th 2009)

    While the headline says Sam Jackson is no longer Nick Fury, he clearly says "maybe", and Marvel says the negotiations are still going on, so this is most likely Sam Jackson trying to put public pressure on Marvel.

    No, no, no. It's gotta be Samuel L. Jackson.

    Sam Jackson turn down THIS role? I think not. This is the guy who begged to be in the Star Wars prequels, no way he's walking away from this. Hell, Ultimate Nick Fury is based on Jackson, who else you gonna get to play him? Morgan Freeman?

    Every comic geek should mail a nickel to Sam's address so he'll still do the part.

    Sam Jackson was born to play Nick Fury like how Robert Downey JR was born to play Iron Man.

    Marvel is getting really stupid lately. First dumping Terrence Howard for Don Cheadle, the War Zone fiasco, and now this. I say bring back The Hoff!

    I'd argue it's because the studio doesn't have enough money to cover it's actors properly... these are the big mistakes they're making early on and it's already draining the fans' patiences.

    Consistency=Profit.

    I prefer the real Nick Fury to be in the movies but since they are most likely going to keep it Ultimate Fury with or without Jackson then I would rather see Jackson as Ultimate fury than anybody else. Though always for me...

    I know. Since when did he ever turn down a role in anything? Not counting this instance.

    aye

    its hard to believe he'd back out of this


    the Ultimate version is straight up based off of him. We know the guy is into being in comic movies/anime type stuff

    i dont really see why this is happening but whatever

    here's hoping he still plays the part. i cant really see too many others filling the role
    [well...maybe Delroy Lindo. he plays a good "authority figure with attitude" but... i dunno how likely THAT is to happen either :p ]

    You can blame them for Terrence Howard, but not for War Zone, other than the licencing they had nothing to do with the movie. It was mainly made so the rights didn't revert back to marvel. Which is why Fox will keep making any x- flick they can, are thinking of bring back Dare Devil, and Sony will keep making Spider-man movies. If they don't do one every few years Marvel gets the movie rights back.

    Would it really be so hard to pay Samuel whatever he wants? Iron Man 2 is going to make at least $200 million anyway...

    Marvel is still a young studio with a number of ambitious projects in development. Despite IM's success, they may be spreading themselves a bit too thin financially.

    If Sam is out I hope they switch to a 616 style Nick.
