Nick Fury Will Get A S.H.I.E.L.D. Movie After The Avengers image
Earlier this week Samuel L. Jackson appeared on what is surely the most annoying radio show in the history of the world, Radio Big Boy, and dropped a huge Marvel bomb. While talking about his nine picture deal with Marvel and confirming that he wonít be in Thor, he revealed this:
ďThe Avengers should start shooting some time next year, and then some time after that thereíll be a big S.H.I.E.L.D. movie.Ē

Thatís right, Nick Furyís secret organization will get its own solo movie. At least if Sam knows what heís talking about. Itís worth noting, however, that during the interview Sam seemed confused about some of Marvel's other movies. For instance he had no idea who was playing Captain America (even though heíll be in the movie) and thought Chris Pine was playing Thor (itís Chris Hemsworth). So itís not exactly like heís a Marvel insider. Still, if thereís one project youíd think heíd be clued in on it would be any potential S.H.I.E.L.D. movie since as Nick Fury, heíd be the star of it.

In Marvel comics lore S.H.I.E.L.D. is a fictional spy and enforcement agency tasked with handing super human problems. Fury runs the thing from a floating hover carrier, and though he often cameos in other comics as heís done in the movies, ďNick Fury, Agent of S.H.I.E.L.D.Ē was also a solo series. The character of Nick Fury actually even had a solo movie in the past, in which he was played by an eyepatch-wearing David Hasselhoff. Itís a decision which Iím sure Marvel would like to forget. Sam Jacksonís version can only be better.
