Samuel L. Jackson On A NICK FURY Solo Film And Race Change

We all know by now that Samuel L. Jackson is game for reprising his role as Nick Fury in his own solo film, and he keeps expressing his interest. He also discusses race change in movies and says he expected more fan outrage over Fury's change than what we got. Check it out...



Back in 2008 Samuel L. Jackson gave many people a nerdgasm when he appeared during Iron Man's post-credits scene as S.H.I.E.L.D.'s Nick Fury. Now he continues to star as the character in many of Marvel's MCU films. But the one movie he hasn't starred in is his own solo film. We all know that Fury starred in many solo adventures in the comics, but how well would that work on film? In an interview with MovieFone, Sam Jackson says: Oh, I'd love to do a Nick Fury film, but it would probably involve all these people also in the same way. I mean, the "Iron Man" standalone is kind of different. But, I mean, Nick being Nick and where he is in terms of S.H.I.E.L.D. and all this other stuff, I always imagined that there would be some of these other people involved in that somewhere and in some way. It would be interesting to find out what they think his development was. I often think about his relationship to Cap. He's sort of ageless. Right now I'm not real sure, because, you know, the Nick Fury I remember was a guy with a patch in World War II or whatever. So how old is this dude? And why is he still around and so vital?

He was also asked about why he thinks there isn't as much outcry over the change in race to Nick Fury as there was to that of the announcement that Michael B. Jordan would be playing The Human Torch in Josh Trank's Fantastic Four reboot. However it may not be a fair argument considering Nick Fury actually was black in the comics during Marvel's Ultimate reboot. Jackson says: I was surprised that there hadn't been more outrage or outcry, but I guess the audience now that's watching these films -- a lot of them haven't gone back in that comic book history to see that, you know. When somebody says David Hasselhoff played Nick Fury, people kind of dismiss it as, "Well, that had to be f**ked up because David Hasselhoff did it." So, they don't see it that way, but yet, still this week, I look online and, you know, now people are all bitched out because Quvenzhane (Wallis) is playing Annie (in the new film version of the musical "Annie"). It's kind of like, it's a f**king fantasy, you know. People do this kind of thing all the time. It's another iteration of Annie so accept it or don't accept it. You can check out Samuel L. Jackson next appearing in Captain America: The Winter Soldier, opening in US theaters this Friday.
