Samuel L. Jackson will be playing Nick Fury for a long, long time. The actor, who cameoed as the character at the end credits of last summer's Iron Man, has signed an unprecedented nine film deal with Marvel Films. Jackson will play the character, who is a member of the S.H.I.E.L.D. spy outfit, in a slew of Marvel movies down the line.
Movies included in the deal are Iron Man 2, The Avengers, Thor, and Captain America. There is a S.H.I.E.L.D. movie currently in development and there is a chance that Jackson will headline that production.
