Nick Fury/SHIELD (2012)

Samuel L. Jackson signed a very interesting mega-picture deal with Marvel Studios which could have Jackson playing Fury in 9 films. We already know he'll be appearing in Iron Man 2, Thor, Captain America and Avengers. I assume we'll be seeing him in every Marvel Studios production from now until he re-signs. Some projects could include Ant-Man, Iron Man 3 and Incredible Hulk 2. It's also assumed that Fury will get his own film that could develop into a franchise. The character Nick Fury was seen in many different comic titles which include Sgt. Fury & His Howling Commandos and Nick Fury & His Agents of SHIELD. I feel that a SHIELD movie is more likely since they're slowing explaining the government agency.

Clark Gregg, who plays Agent Phil Coulson will more than likely reprise his role. Some important supporting characters include Dum Dum Dugan, Gabriel Jones and Maria Hill. In the Ultimate Comics Avengers, Marvel Girl is also included as Col. Carol Danvers.

My assumption is that War Machine and Black Widow will be agents of SHIELD as well.

Jeremy Renner (Hurt Locker) could be involved in both Avengers and SHIELD films. If he is cast as Clint Barton (Hawkeye).

HYDRA is SHIELD's direct evil counterpart and it's main goal is global domination. It's roots belong with ex-Nazis and Japanese subversives who joined forces to create the secret society bent on world conquest. I'm sure HYDRA's story will be explained in Captain America.
