:Jackson: S.H.I.E.L.D. Movie HappeningNick Fury says to prepare for the Helicarrier now.May 14, 2010by Scott Collura
Do you want to see a S.H.I.E.L.D.
movie? Well, Sam Jackson does -- and since he's signed to about 999,999 more Marvel movies, he rightly should. But is a film based on the famous (for us geeks anyway) secret intelligence agency really in the works?
should be shooting sometime next year," Jackson told Radio Big Boy
. "Then, probably sometime after that, there will be a big S.H.I.E.L.D.
The actor, of course, plays Nick Fury in the Marvel movies. Fury is the head of S.H.I.E.L.D.
, but the question must be asked: What would a S.H.I.E.L.D.
film be all about, especially in the wake of an Avengers
film which presumably would heavily focus on Fury's organization too?
Jackson also discusses Thor
and Captain America
in the interview, once again saying that he's not in the former film but will be in the latter. And amusingly enough, he claims that he doesn't know who's playing Cap but that the actor who was cast as Thor
is "the guy who played Captain Kirk" in Star Trek
. You're close Sam! (It's actually Chris Hemsworth, who played Kirk's dad in that movie.)
But what the hell does Jackson need to worry about such details for anyway? He's too busy signing all those Marvel checks…
