Because the color of his skin still matters apparently.

Obviously.
I would feel the same regarding a black Thor, or a black Cap, or a white Luke Cage, or a white Ororo Monroe.
Get it?

Re: Let Joss Whedon direct The Avengers

Yes, it matters to you that they look like they do in the comics. I don't think you needed to clarify that.

But it's not like they made the Hulk pink or something.

Would you rather a white actor play him even if he wasn't as good as Sam Jackson?

Note: I have no idea how good he was at portraying the comic version of Nick Fury.

No, I actually don't get it because you still haven't explained yourself. When Will Smith was in negotiations to play Captain America at the beginning of the process, I thought it was a great idea. This is coming from someone quite loyal to the original source material.

I truly want to know why you are uncomfortable with those things.

I agree completely. In fact, I think thats the biggest thing missing from spider-man movies. Spidey is a trash talking jester in the comics, why not reflect that in his movies

I get what he's saying. Like your Cap analogy. You put will Smith in there and you're telling me they aren't going to change the character at all? He goes from a guy who was frozen for decades and is lost, confused and out of touch, to a witty super solider throwing one liners and winning everyone over with charm. That's not cap.

I always hated Fury anyways, and I hate Sam Jackson just as much ever since abortions like Snakes on a Plane and black snake moan.

You can't tell me you wouldn't be weirded out if the next X-Men movie Storm is played by Katie Holmes or something.

Whatever TDKR does on its first weekend, the only stat that matters to me is the ticket I'M definitely buying. Nolan and Raimi INVENTED the true superhero flick, yo.

Apparently the Avengers is affecting schawarma sales.

Also, here's a little info on the end title sequence: http://www.methodstudios.com/work/the-avengers

Not very good but that is manly i think because we really havent seen much from the character.

I dont read much Marvel anymore. But i think they just introduces Nick Fury son who is black and take over for Nick Fury when he retires. And even changes his name to Nick Fury Jr

I didn't spend more than 20 years reading the comics, and loving the Marvel (and to a lesser extent, the DC Comics) franchise and it's superheros to be open or even understand changes like those.
A black Cap? What for?
A white Storm? WTF!

I undestand a little tinkering around the original source material (eventually for better cinematic achievment), but nothing as drastic as changing a caracter's skin color, or gender, or sexual preference, or whatever.

Nick Fury was a hard-nosed-war-veteran-cigar-smoking-hard-ass. And white. Samuel Jackson (who is a great actor, imho) is NOT Nick Fury.

Mar-vell may or not be in the next flick, but i bet neither Spidey, Ben Grimm and Warlock (amongst others) won't, also.

Meh. I haven't seen the movie yet, but I have a hard time seeing them pull off Thanos. Any Thanos story arch I've read has guys like Galactus, Captain Marvel, Nova, Drax, etc. I just don't see it working.

Would be awesome if they could pull it off, but I don't see it.
