It is quite ironic that Samuel L. Jackson is portraying Nick Fury. In the Ultimates
, an "ultimate" alternate reality of the Marvel Universe, the Ultimate version of Nick Fury was modeled after Samuel L. Jackson. A lot of the costumes for these films were modeled after the Ultimates designs so it makes me smirk when I think of the looping effect going on here. At any rate, Mr. Jackson has done a great job of portraying the hard nose S.H.I.E.L.D. leader and it is great to see him in the role.
