Actually, remember from Iron Man 2 that Fury knew Howard Stark, well enough to imply that Fury was an adult when they interacted and likely was involved early in SHIELD's history. Howard died in 1991, Sam Jackson was around 42 then. In different Marvel storylines, Fury is involved with SHIELD's creation, either as an idea he had that other groups ran with or as a hands-on event. In the stories where Fury seemed too young for that they explained it with a medical-science-fiction thingy that made him age slower. Personally, I'd love to see that. They could get a younger actor to play a visually 20- or 30- something Fury and clue in on how he's still relatively young in the current timeline.Flatfrog said:I'd quite like to see an origin-of-Nick-Fury arc in there, which could be tied nicely into any civil rights themes they have going. If we met Fury's grandfather, for example, and he had some connection with SHIELD that tied in with Agent Carter, that would be potentially interesting.
Shouldn't there be an opening bracket in there to match the closing one at the end of the paragraph?Finally, it can't be ignored that the timing of the series' launch will make Peggy Carter by default the first female hero - "super" or otherwise - to headline her own franchise in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, though Alias: Jessica Jones is now in pre-production as one of the four Defenders limited-series for Netflix. Even if Marvel were to shock the world and announce Black Widow or Ms. Marvel solo features at Comic-Con, she's still going to hit the air first - and also before DC's yet-unconfirmed Wonder Woman!)
That was actually just a movie, albeit a very cheap one that was made without actual intent to release in full. The people who had the option for Fantastic Four at the time had been unable to mount a full production and was in danger of losing control of the property if they didn't fulfill obligations to produce and release a finished feature within a certain timeframe; so they hooked up with Corman's production company at the time with agreement to produce an ultra-cheap version with what money they did have and give it a brief but "official" run at a single theater in order to live up to the contract and retain the rights - which they eventually sold back along with the rights to the "fake" film's negatives (which were said to have been burned.)ritchards said:So... does this mean Bob will be taking a look at the failed TV pilot from Roger Corman for Fantastic Four?
