The Hollywood Reporter has confirmed that actor Samuel L. Jackson is to reprise his fan-favorite role of Nick Fury in as many as nine films for Marvel Studios, including “Iron Man 2,” “Thor,” “Captain America,” “The Avengers” and whatever sequels those films generate.
The news of this unprecedented deal comes just weeks after Jackson appeared to be unhappy with the status of negotiations with Marvel. Obviously, the conflict has been resolved.
THR also indicated that a “S.H.I.E.L.D.” film with Jackson as the top-billed star is also in development.
