Samuel L. Jackson has officially signed on to play Nick Fury in Iron Man 2.  Woo-hoo!!!  When I saw Iron Man I barely even knew who Nick Fury was, but roomie and I sat through the credits because we’d heard there was a scene after, and then we practically started screaming when we realized that was SAMUEL L. JACKSON there talking to Tony.

After all the endlessly swirling casting rumors about the sequel (Mickey Rourke? Scarlett Johansson?), and the re-casting of Rhodey, it’s nice know that something is finally going right with this movie.
