I'm Sick Of These Motherfucking Avengers In This Motherfucking Movie
So apparently it's come out that Samuel L Jackson will not be involved in Thor as Nick Fury. Though originally thought to be part of the movie it's now clear that old Mr. Jackson will have to wait until The Avengers movie to reprise his role as the leader of S.H.I.E.L.D. Jackson took this with his usual amount of class by saying the Thor filmmakers should pay him since they originally put his name in the trades. Jackson also said that the Avengers movie is pretty much a star vehicle for his character, a claim I hope is incredibly false.
See I hate Sam Jackson as Nick Fury for no other reason than he's NOT NICK FURY. Nick Fury is an older, grim faced, kick ass white dude with an eye patch. He has been this since Steranko created him in the sixties. I realize Sam Jackson's Fury is based on the Ultimates comic run but I don't care, I still hate it. I'm not amped to see two hours of "bad ass" Samuel Jackson horeshit applied to one of Marvel Comic's greatest characters. I'm sure that's what it will be since Jackson is a one trick pony, constantly doing some version of his character from Pulp Fiction.
I just can't believe the ego it takes for him to want to be the focal point of The Avengers. He's not even originally involved with them so he should be happy he's in the goddamn movie at all. Does he really think we'd rather see him than Thor, Captain America, Iron Man, Hulk, Wasp and so on. Jesus what an asshole. In other news the Stan Lee cameo from Thor has been found out. Check it:
Thor’s hammer ( Mjolnir ) is found lying inside a crater in the middle of the road by the U.S. Army. The army tries to move it but can’t because it’s too heavy. They decide to bring in a truck for assistance. The soldiers tie Thor’s hammer to the back of the truck with chains. The truck driver accelerates to pull Mjohnir. The back half of the truck falls apart as the front keeps moving. Finally, the camera cuts to the driver who happens to be comic legend Stan Lee.
The Avengers starts shooting in February.
