Movies: It's S.H.E.I.L.D. time motha f@&ker


Emily Blunt is out, Mickey Rourke is being low balled and it seemed Samuel L. Jackson was going the way of Terrence Howard. But hold up. Marvel has done a complete 180 degree turn and tapped the man who was Mace Windu to reprise his role as S.H.E.I.L.D. commander Nick Fury. Marvel resigned Jackson to an astounding nine picture deal. The films will supposedly include Captain America, Thor, and The Avengers.

The Marvel movie universe was in danger of losing any of the continuity and good will it had gained in the last year. I don't mind the casting of Don Cheadle because he is excellent but losing more than one essential actor would be a drag on the next Iron Man film. So this is great news! Now let's get Rourke and Rockwell signed up.
