Terrence Howard’s “Iron Man 2″ booting should’ve served as a reminder to any high-profile player that Marvel consider you replaceable.
But Sam Jackson!? Sam the Man!? Surely, that’d be an impossible pink-slip to hand-deliver!?
Jackson tells The L.A Times that he might not be back as Nick Fury for the “Iron Man” sequel (or any other Marvel film for that matter) because – well, he doesn’t actually come out and say it, but sounds like this is what’s happened – the studio won’t pay him his usual fee.
”I saw [‘Iron Man’ and ‘Iron Man 2′ director] Jon Favreau at the Scream Awards and we had a conversation. He said, â€˜I hope things are working out for you because weâ€™re writing stuff for you.â€™ Then all of a sudden last week I talked to my agents and manager and things arenâ€™t really working that well”, Jackson, who was tipped to also play the character in “The Avengers”, says.
”There was a huge kind of negotiation that broke down. I donâ€™t know. Maybe I wonâ€™t be Nick Fury. Maybe somebody else will be Nick Fury or maybe Nick Fury wonâ€™t be in it. There seems to be an economic crisis in the Marvel Comics world so [they’re saying to me], â€˜Weâ€™re not making that deal.â€™”
Is Pauly Shore in charge of Marvel at the moment? No? Then why the fuck are we even contemplating dropping Jackson from the film, guys!!?
