Beyond ‘Wonder Woman’: 8 Actresses Who Deserve to Be Cast in Blockbusters, From Ruth Negga to Teresa Palmer

6 June 2017 9:08 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Newly minted blockbuster superstar Gal Gadot was hardly a household name when she was picked to play Wonder Woman in DC’s Extended Universe, including turns in “Batman v Superman” and “Justice League” and a starring role in the studio’s newest smash hit, “Wonder Woman.” Best known to action-loving audiences for her supporting roles in the “Fast and Furious” franchise, the former Israeli soldier is now a bonafide breakout, thanks to her work in the long-awaited and instantly beloved superhero film. Fortunately, she’s not the only actress who made the jump from rising star to tentpole leading lady.

Oscar winner Alicia Vikander is toplining the newly re-launched “Tomb Raider” franchise, while “Kingsman” and “Star Trek Beyond” standout Sofia Boutella will star in the upcoming “The Mummy” reboot and presumably continue on in the planned “Dark Universe” franchise. Daisy Ridley has handily taken over chief badass status on the »

S.H.I.E.L.D. has many an uber-talented secret agent on its payroll, but the best of the bunch will always be Nick Fury. Whichever one of the various versions of the character you’re talking about, Fury is always at the top of the pile for a reason. In this new series, we follow Nick Fury Jr. – the African-American son of the original who was created to better tie in with Samuel L. Jackson’s portrayal on the big screen – as he gets assigned on globe-trotting missions of derring-do.

If you’re not already thinking of James Bond movies, then you will be as soon as you open this issue. Nick Fury #1 couldn’t be more of a homage to the Bond franchise if it tried. The storyline is borrowed wholesale from Casino Royale, »

Although we haven’t been seeing as much of Nick Fury as of late on the big screen, it’s undeniable that Samuel L. Jackson can largely be credited for allowing the character to attain the mainstream prominence he’s been enjoying for the past nine years.

It’s certainly no secret that Marvel comics have taken cues from their cinematic counterparts in recent memory, one of which was introducing a Fury that was more Jackson-like into Marvel continuity proper, although he technically has “Junior” on the end of his name. Still, you have to get a kick out of how things came full circle given that Jackson’s onscreen take was informed by the Nick Fury from the Ultimate universe, which was actually modelled after the veteran actor himself. The fact that all of reality »

Samuel L. Jackson Would Rather Do John Wick 3 Than a Nick Fury Movie

16 March 2017 11:30 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Though Agents of S.H.E.I.L.D. has had a good run on ABC, there has always been talk of Samuel L. Jackson getting his own stand-alone Nick Fury movie. But guess what? The actor doesn't seem so interested in that. And he has a better idea. He wants to co-star in John Wick 3.

Samuel L. Jackson hasn't ever really held the same kind of 'franchise viagra' mantra that fueled Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson's path to superstardom, but he has appeared in his fare share of sequels, outside of the Marvel universe. After becoming a true household name with his appearance in Pulp Fiction, Jackson immediately took on a key role in Die Hard 3. He also brought quite a bit of gravitas to the Star Wars prequels as Mace Windu. And he's a permanent fixture in the xXx movies. Now, he wants in on John Wick's territory. »

Did Samuel L. Jackson Inadvertently Confirm Red Skull For Avengers: Infinity War?

14 March 2017 6:19 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

When we last saw Samuel L. Jackson’s Nick Fury, he was providing some much-needed assistance to Earth’s Mightiest Heroes in Avengers: Age of Ultron. Conspicuous by his absence in Captain America: Civil War, the hero looks set to make his presence felt in Avengers: Infinity War, but will he be joined by a fan-favourite villain?

During a recent interview to promote the release of Kong: Skull Island, Jackson reiterated the fact that he won’t be making an appearance in Black Panther, but when he alluded to what the former S.H.I.E.L.D. Director has been up to since we last saw him, he revealed:

“You didn’t see me in [Captain America:] Civil War. I’m still out there trying to figure out what The Skull is going to…”

Unfortunately, he trailed off after that, but as you might expect, speculation is now running rampant that »

Samuel Jackson Is Mad At Marvel Over Black Panther

12 March 2017 8:37 PM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

Samuel L. Jackson is a very busy actor, having starred in over 20 movies in the past five years. However, one movie he won’t be appearing in is Marvel’s upcoming Black Panther film…and he’s not happy about that!

Phase Three of the Disney produced McU will introduce some diversity to the super hero universe. The Black Panther, starring Chadwick Boseman—who was a scene stealer in Captain America: Civil War—will feature an impressive cast including Michael B. Jordan, Lupita Nyong’o, Danai Gurira, Angela Bassett, Daniel Kaluuya, Sterling K. Brown and Forest Whitaker.

One name that’s not included on this list is Samuel L. Jackson, who plays Nick Fury in the McU. Having expected to be included, Jackson voiced his disappointment about being left out while talking to Sirius Xm to promote his newest film Kong: Skull Island.

Jackson said, “I can't go to Wakanda, »

Samuel L. Jackson Teases Captain Marvel Appearance And Reveals Why He's Not In Black Panther

17 February 2017 3:42 PM, PST | | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

We Got This Covered recently had the chance to sit down with Samuel L. Jackson to discuss Kong: Skull Island, and the Marvel Cinematic Universe inevitably came up. We already know that Nick Fury will return in Avengers: Infinity War after sitting out Captain America: Civil War, but what lies beyond that for the fan-favourite former S.H.I.E.L.D. Director?  Unsurprsingly, Jackson is still keen on a solo outing for Fury, but he seemed to heavily imply that the hero will make his presence felt in Captain Marvel a few years from now. He also explained why Fury won't be hanging out with T'Challa in Wakanda next year.  "Yeah, I’d love to do a Nick Fury movie. I’m always open and game. But they got Infinity Wars, two movies to do there, and after that there’s Brie [Larson’s] movie Captain Marvel, which maybe [Nick] will be part of. »

Samuel L. Jackson Open To Doing A Nick Fury Movie, May Be In Captain Marvel

17 February 2017 2:23 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

If you cast your mind way back to 2008’s Iron Man, you’ll remember that it was Samuel L. Jackson’s Nick Fury who properly kicked off what’s now become known as the Marvel Cinematic Universe, revealing to Tony Stark his plans for the Avengers initiative. It was a post-credits scene that may not have meant a whole lot to the average moviegoer at the time, but one that’s now spawned what’s become perhaps the biggest franchise in cinema.

Unfortunately, the last time we saw Jackson’s fan-favorite character was quite a while ago. Back in 2015’s Avengers: Age of Ultron, in fact. He’s still around though, and with a role in Joe and Anthony Russo’s Avengers: Infinity War to look forward to, we should be seeing a lot more of him in the near future. But what about the studio’s plans for the character beyond that? »

Nick Fury Is Getting His Own “Psychedelic” Ongoing Series Later This Spring

5 January 2017 3:55 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

While the original Nick Fury is now known as “the Unseen” and forced to take on the role once held by The Watcher, his son remains a big part of the Marvel Universe. It just so happens that he bears a striking resemblance to the version played on the big screen by Samuel L. Jackson, and the character is now getting a series of his own later this year.

Written by James Robinson with art by Aco, Newsarama describes the comic as “psychedelic,” and it’s easy to see why based on the Nick Fury #1 preview pages in the gallery below.
