Samuel L. Jackson talked briefly to BlackVoices.com about returning as Nick Fury in Iron Man 2.
Are we going to see more of Nick Fury in ‘Iron Man 2’?
Samuel L. Jackson: I saw Jon Favreau last night (at the Scream Awards), and he told me we were. I was standing next to George Lucas and he said to me, ‘Hey! I hope you are making your deal with them (Paramount)’ and I was like, ‘Really’ (Laughs)
Are you excited to be working with Don Cheadle?
SLJ: Yes. Don and I are good friends and I think it’s going to be an exciting difference. We’ll see what happens. It’s kind of amazing how (the switch from Terrence Howard to Don Cheadle) that happened.
For those who didn’t see Jackson as Nick Fury after the credit in Iron Man, you can watch the scene below!
Meanwhile MTV asked Marvel Studios President of Production Kevin Feige about the recent Terrence Howard/Don Cheadle recast, to which he replied:
He then went on to say:
That [‘Hollywood Reporter’ story] was not an announcement. That was, as it tends to happen in the business, is rumors and leaks and things like that. I do think there will be clarity soon.”
So nothing is official yet? This is getting stupid!
