Sam Jackson Says to Expect a SHIELD Movie After the Avengers

10 Comments

According to Samuel L. Jackson, who has played Nick Fury in the last two “Iron Man” movies, you can expect a SHIELD movie after “The Avengers” invades movie screens in 2012. I don’t doubt him one bit, because I think “The Avengers” is going to make more money than God. Okay, maybe not that much, but it’s going to be pretty damn huge, and when it cleans up, Marvel will be scrambling to build SHIELD’s fleet of helicarriers.

Jackson made the “SHIELD” announcement while on something called Big Boy Radio (via Hitfix), telling them that he will also be appearing in Joe Johnston’s upcoming “Captain America” movie, but will be taking a flier on Kenneth Branagh’s in-production “Thor”. It’ll be interesting how they insert Jackson into “Captain America’s” World War II setting.

Also according to Jackson, a SHIELD movie will be on its way by 2013, a year after “The Avengers” opens. Jackson’s Nick Fury, as head of the international spy agency SHIELD (it actually stands for something, but right now I’m too lazy to look it up) will play a major role in assembling “The Avengers”, as evidenced by his recruitment of Tony Stark in “Iron Man 2″. He’s also got one hell of a reach, and seems to control a lot of secret Government strings.

So we know Nick Fury will be in SHIELD, but who else? Scarlett Johansson as the Black Widow is a must. And of course, it wouldn’t be an Ultimates-flavored SHIELD movie without the sharp-shooting Hawkeye, if just to somehow write in a scene where Hawkeye takes out a base full of terrorists with nothing but his fingernails (below). His fingernails!

    HELL YEAH!!
    From Wiki:”The acronym originally stood for Supreme Headquarters, International Espionage, Law-Enforcement Division. It was changed in 1991 to Strategic Hazard Intervention, Espionage Logistics Directorate.”

    I think a S.H.I.E.L.D. flick should definitely have Widow and Hawkeye in it though it won't be a truly Ultimate version of the organization or the characters cause if it was Widow would have to turn traitor and well…So no not fully Ultimate. That said let's throw in some old school heads like Dum Dum Dugan, Clay Quartermain, and the Contessa.
    As for WWII era Fury I say get Tyrese to play him. He's got the attitude and decent acting chops.

    Also the plot of the S.H.I.E.L.D. film should be them against Hydra and Baron Von Strucker. All out chaos man!! But definitely take Hydra seriously. Make them into the worst terrorist threat we've seen in a film. Something along the lines of what Cobra does in “GIJoe:Resolute” like taking out a whole country or something. And I want a Fury Vs Strucker fight. Eyepatch vs Eyepatch!!!

    AHHH!!! You beat me again Dedpool aka Jiinx!!! Yeah I like those ideas. Hydra is a must but if they don't do Hydra then it could be “A.I.M.” or “S.W.O.R.D”. I'd prefer Hydra though and even though M.O.D.O.K is with A.I.M I'd like to see him in this movie. Hell yeah, to a badass Ultimates Hawkeye too. I think Jason Statham would be a good Ultimates version of Hawkeye. Tyrese as young FURY is absolute GENIUS depool!!! I can totally see that!!! He already reminds me of a young SLJ. Fury vs Strucker is a must! What actor do you think would be a good Van Strucker? I also want to see Carol Danvers and Jessica Drew in this but as cameos or background characters. Jessica can start out with Hydra but show how she's begins to see how she was being manipulated or mind controlled.

    Here's the thing with Drw and Danvers, unless we're trying to bring the Ms. Marvel and SpiderWoman characters into the new Marvel Movie Universe I'm not sure we should have them. However might I suggest the newly returned Mockingbird Barbara “Bobbi” Morse? I'd suggest Sharon Carter but she needs to show up in Cap II. So I think Mockingbird, with Hawkeye and maybe even Widow would work out well. That way we're not introducing super powered people into this world of espionage. We got the Avengers for that.
    As for Hydra or A.I.M. i thought about that. Either would work for me. S.W.O.R.D. is kinda an ofshoot of S.H.I.E.L.D. so I don't see them goin against each other plus then you're adding in E.T.'s.
    Glad you liked the Tyrese idea, whatyou said is exactly why I chose him.
    M.O.D.O.K. has to be dangerous and almost scary or it will just seem campy.
    As for who could play Strucker…hmmms Let me think on that.
    I Like Statham but I think Jeremy Rennier woulda fit the part better, or maybe even Jensen Ackles from “Supernatural.”

    I got it for Strucker how about Gary Oldman, or Ron Perlman, or maybe even the guy from Avatar.

    Well as far as Carol Danvers and Drew, they'd start out superpower-less as SHIELD agents,just regular humans. I like Colm Feore, I think he'd be a great Strucker but he's going to in Thor as a major villain. How about John Malkovich as Strucker? I think Renner as Hawkeye is pure GENIUS and I'd prefer him above all others,but he'd have to have the black/covert ops suit not that purple shite. “MockingBird”!? Yeah,I liked her from back in the day! I think It'd be perfect cuz then it could cause for some frictional stuff between Hawkeye,Mockingbird, and Black Widow. I can totally see a “Hawkeye & Mockingbird” solo movie!!!! I think SHIELD does need to have a semi-supernatural or “psychics” division,agents who have special abilties like “TELEKINESIS”,”TELEPATHY”, “REMOTE VIEWING”,and or “PSYCHOMETRY” nothing TOO over the top just a little special like the agents form the movie “PUSH”.

  • http://www.originalgeekspodcast.com/ Dedpool aka Jiinx

    The “Push” aspect works. I'd mention it briefly or show it briefly but not make a big deal of it til maybe a second movie. A Hawkeye & Mockingbird solo flick would be great, and would work on the low budget Marvel movie list Nix made too. I know what you meant bout Drew and Danvers. Just not sure this would be the right movie and not the Avengers sequel. The roster is definitely testosterone heavy.

    Oh and Malkovitch, as good as he is wouldn't work for me, his voice is to soft. And though he does menacing very well, like the Red Skull the voice needs to be as imposing as his look and personality.

  • ulik

    Yeah, your 100% right about Malkovich, he's got the look but for someone like Strucker, the voice has to be utterly commanding. So yeah he's out unless he could prove otherwise. Anyway Marvel will be making choice anyway not me.LOL! It's always cool to imagine though. I've heard that they do read these rants and blogs all the time and it influences them to a degree to know what the fans want. That said what about Ben Kingsley?

  • http://www.originalgeekspodcast.com/ Dedpool aka Jiinx

    Ben Kingsley is not a bad choice. Let's see how he does in Prince of Persia as a villain first. He'll always be Ghandi to me. Lol. I was really trying to think of a character actor that'd be really good in the part. I'd love to see Baron Zemo done for Cap though. I'd have Oldman play the older Zemo in a flashback, and have Colin Farrell or someone play the 2nd Zemo. Oh how bout Jeffery Rush as Von Strucker?
