For comic book fans, Samuel L. Jackson's cameo appearance as Nick Fury at the end of Iron Man was a huge treat. At a press junket for Soul Men Jackson told Comic Book Movie a bit about his role in Iron Man 2.
As a matter of fact, Iron Man director Jon Favreau spoke to me at the Scream Awards last night, and told me that Nick Fury would have a much more prominent role in the second one (Iron Man 2).
Jackson also said that he was looking forward to working with Don Chealde on the film. Cheadle is replacing Terrence Howard in the role of Jim Rhodes, Tony Stark's friend, Air Force contact, and may become the superhero War Machine in Iron Man 2.
