Avengers Trailer Released

Renner and RDJ saved that cast. I'll check it out, I'm sure, but I'm still pissed off that Nick Fury was given to Samuel L. Jackson. That guy is the most overrated actor in Hollywood, IMO. I call him Angry L. Jackson. He has no depth to any of his characters. All he can do is play angry/jaded/racist.

I actually like it. It's a typecast, sure, but you need a very abrasive personality to make that role work, one that also hints of intelligence. Samuel might be an easy cast, but he isn't dumb and doesn't sound dumb when he speaks. I think they could've done a lot worse then him for Fury, + he pulls off the badass comic book character look.

Meh — does Fury no justice. SLJ has awkward anger. He raises his voice in really weird ways, similar to Nick Cage.

 

I just don't like it.

To explain the Samuel L. Jackson casting not that I agree with the move, in the early 2000's marvel did an "ultimate" series and for the series the author made "Ultimate Nick Fury" look exactly like SLJ. No idea why but its literally him.

It was done with his permission.

It was actually done without his permission, had to look up the specifics but according to wikipedia

 

"It was only after seeing the redesigned Nick Fury in the first issue of The Ultimates that Samuel L. Jackson learned of the use of his likeness and contacted Marvel in order to secure the role of Nick Fury in any future Marvel movies."
