We were first introduced to Nick Fury - by surprise - at the end of Iron Man. This appearance started it all. Nick Fury, Director of S.H.I.E.L.D. has been with us since 2008 appearing as a leader, as the biggest help to the Avengers and now we sit back and wonder...how did it all start? What is Nick Fury's story?
Sure, we have read the comics and know a little about this powerful man's backstory, but how did he become affiliated with S.H.I.E.L.D? Why is Nick so secretive? How did he lose his eye? Did he know Agent Carter? What was his relationship with Howard Stark? Inquiring minds want to know. A film has been rumored for quite some time - IMDb even has a placeholder for a Nick Fury-themed film.
The synopsis reads..."A daring amateur boxer from Hells Kitchen is recruited by the Army for some top-secret assignments. He soon is promoted to captain, where he puts together the First Attack Squad, a group of elite soldiers who carry out elite missions."
With the buzz around all the Marvel movies and myself being a designer, I put together my own Nick Fury poster. In hopes of maybe soon, Marvel will make the move and make the movie. I have also seen that Samuel L. Jackson is supposedly in negotiations with Marvel over extending his contract. Could it be...this movie will actually happen?!
I guess time will tell. In the meantime, we can all hope and wait for Marvel to do something this huge in the (hopefully) near future. Just because they have their slate of movies...doesn't mean they won't throw a curve ball and change things up and add an unnamed film in the mix, making us wait with anticipation. But, I think every Marvel fan really wants to know the real story of Nick Fury and how he is the super-spy we all know and love today.
