No Nick Fury for Jackson?

Shocking news has hit the comic world hard as blockbuster actor Samuel L. Jackson who has been a fellow comic book reader for many years announced he will not be reprising his role as the bad ass director of S.H.E.L.D.Nick Fury. He told the Los Angeles Times that talks about him returning to the role in future Marvel Studios have broken down:

"There was a huge kind of negotiation that broke down. I don't know. Maybe I won't be Nick Fury. Maybe somebody else will be Nick Fury or maybe Nick Fury won't be in it. There seems to be an economic crisis in the Marvel Comics world so [they're saying to me], 'We're not making that deal.'"

Jackson made a cameo as the S.H.E.L.D. director Nice Fury in the 2008 blockbuster film Iron Man, and was originally set to reprise his role in its sequel Iron Man 2 and the upcoming Avengers movie. But now everything is up in the air for the actor and his character.
