    OMG... I got a stitch in my side laughing at this... In WHAT UNIVERSE?

    ;)

    But honestly though?

    "My Nick Fury was the organic Nick Fury that was written and discussed with Stan Lee before anyone got in there to change it. Nick Fury was written to be tongue-in-cheek, and he had a cigar in his mouth, he was a tough guy ? he was cool."

    Because Samuel M'F'ing L Jackson isn't a tough guy nor cool?

    Let me put my geek on to say: The original Nick Fury was designed by Marvel to be a WWII vet who could relate personally to the war time frame Captain America came from. The new black version is designed to update the concept by making Fury a more 'realistic' and recent vet who relates more to the complex, high tech world that has developed since the '80s. Two different eras, two different tough guys. Both iterations provide the superheroes an interface with governmental authority through SHIELD, and at times logistical support from them that helped make their operations seem believable.

    Whatever, both Nicks stretch credibility to the max. The Pentagon refused to assist Hollywood in making the Avengers movie, because they backed off over the Fury character. Who does he or SHIELD ultimately answer to, the US or the UN? Who would give a mere Col. Fury command over a the SHIELD heliocarrier, the equivalent of a Navy aircraft carrier? Wouldn't the second in command have had to point a gun to him and relieved him of command, not just over refusing to nuke NYC at the climax of the movie, but over the destruction of an entire HQ at the beginning of the film?

    Samuel Jackson is surprisingly good at everything he does including Nick Fury. He makes it look effortless. As far as Hasselhoff is concerned. Two simple words that I'm sure Stan Lee has thought of already:
    alternate universe

    Doesn't the Marvel movies take place in the ultimate universe or are they separate from the comics?

    David Hasselhoff was as good as a nick fury as Matt salinger was good as a captain america. roflmao

    There is no black super hero but he comes and says this. phsshhhh, you want an all white cast? Samuel L Jackson played the role great.

    Of course David Hasselhoff would believe he's the best Nick Fury. This is coming from the guy who believed he deserved multiple Emmys for his amazing acting skills on.....Baywatch.

    It's isn't so much about him actually being good or bad as it is about him stating his opinion so audaciuosly in my opinion.

    Roughly, what he's saying boils down to: "You guys suck, and I was the best".
