Washington, Feb 26 (ANI): Samuel L. Jackson is set to reprise the role of Nick Fury in as many as nine films for Marvel Studios, including ‘Iron Man 2,’ ‘Thor,’ ‘Captain America,’ ‘The Avengers’, ‘The Shield’ as well as potential sequels.

The news of this unprecedented deal comes just weeks after Jackson appeared to be unhappy with the status of negotiations with Marvel, reports Variety.

Initial reports indicated that Jackson was displeased with Marvel’s earlier offers, considering the film’s global success and 600 million dollars in box office earnings.

But now, not only have Jackson and Marvel Entertainment patched things up, the actor has made a long-term deal with the company that could include up to nine more movies.

Jackson made a brief appearance at the end of the first film when Fury asked Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.) to join his espionage unit the Shield. (ANI)
