Samuel L. Jackson Joins the Cast of Iron Man

Samuel L. Jackson has signed a deal with Marvel to play Nick Fury in Iron Man 2, the sequel to last summer’s successful blockbuster Iron Man. Read on:

Samuel L. Jackson has buried the hatchet with Marvel Entertainment, making a deal to play the role of Nick Fury in “Iron Man 2,” and potentially many other films.

Jackson’s deal is a long-term commitment to play Fury, the leader of the espionage unit the Shield. His deal contains an option to play the character in nine future Marvel superhero films, efforts that are expected to include “Captain America,” “Thor,” “The Avengers” and “The Shield” as well as potential sequels.

Jackson introduced Fury in the closing moments of “Iron Man,” when the character asked Robert Downey Jr.’s Tony Stark to join his group. Fury is a natural to show up in multiple Marvel franchises, as he crosses paths with many Marvel superheroes in the comicbooks.

Jackson’s Marvel future looked murky, after he reportedly expressed his displeasure with the producer-financier’s initial offer to reprise his role. Jackson was hardly alone: Even though “Iron Man” grossed more than $600 million worldwide, Marvel brass has been sparing in offers to talent like Mickey Rourke and Sam Rockwell to play villains in the sequel, sources said.

Jackson and his ICM reps have evidently cleared those dealmaking hurdles, and he will take part in the sequel that director Jon Favreau shoots in the spring, with Paramount Pictures distributing in summer 2010.

SML Lays Down the Law

Lakeview Terrace

Samuel L. Jackson (star of Lakeview Terrace) chats exclusively with IGN.

In director Neil LaBute’s new thriller Lakeview Terrace, opening Friday, Chris and Lisa Mattson (Patrick Wilson and Kerry Washington) have just moved into their California dream home when they become the target of their next-door neighbor, who disapproves of their lifestyle.

A stern, single father, tightly wound veteran L.A.P.D. officer Abel Turner (Samuel L. Jackson) has appointed himself the watchdog of the neighborhood. Abel’s nightly foot patrols and overly watchful eyes bring comfort to some, but he becomes increasingly harassing to the newlyweds. His persistent intrusions into their lives ultimately turn tragic when the couple decides to fight back.

IGN recently had the chance to sit down one-on-one with Samuel L. Jackson to discuss his role as Abel Turner. Please be advised that THIS ARTICLE INCLUDES SPOILERS:

IGN: Abel is a widower. Were the circumstances of his wife’s death the trigger that set him off? Or was he already a ticking time bomb before she died?

Samuel L. Jackson: I just think that was an event. That was an event that set him off on another kind of path, that kind of changed the dynamic of who he was at home with his kids. Not necessarily on the job but with his kids. I don’t think that if that couple had moved in next door that was the flame that lit the fuse on it. He may have been OK otherwise, and he may have found a way to defuse the situation. But Patrick’s character didn’t choose to do that. He got kind of confrontational.

IGN: Did you and the other filmmakers discuss what sort of relationship Abel had with his wife before she died?

Jackson: Not really. No, that was stuff I had in my head. I didn’t discuss it with Neil; I didn’t discuss it with the writers. Interestingly enough, I think that they were having marital problems just because most cops don’t have long relationships. I’m sure they were having some kind of marital problem. I’m positive. I’m sure that her being in that car with her boss at that particular time in that particular place was something that was not kosher. And because he knows that he has these feelings of inadequacy that his wife was cheating on him and doing whatever. So he’s not dealing with it very well or is not going to deal with it very well so all that stuff plays into that. So when he looks and sees those people in the pool or sees them sharing affection in a particular way, it kind of clicks things in his head. He doesn’t see them. He sees the boss and his wife.
