If there’s one guy you don’t want to p*ss off in Hollywood, it’s probably Samuel L. Jackson
Someone has done just that though, via some unfortunate Spider-Man: Far From Home artwork.
Jackson shared what looked like a screenshot of a Reddit post, which showed two different pieces of artwork featuring Nick Fury.
Only on each poster, his signature eyepatch had been switched round, covering his right eye on one poster and his left on the other – something which Jackson is apparently very touchy about.
Speaking to ComicBook.com, Jackson recently spoke about his character’s relationship with Peter Parker in the upcoming film.
“Really, you think I like him?” Jackson responded incredulously. “We’re getting there. He’s a little frustrating for me right now. I want him to grow up quicker than he’s willing to grow up. And I’m doing that parental pressure thing. Like, ‘Come on! Either get a job or get out of the house!'”
Director Jon Watts said he initially wanted to include Nick Fury in Spider-Man: Homecoming too.
“I always wanted to put our idealistic teenage hero Peter Parker against a jaded, world-weary super spy like Nick Fury,” Watts explained. “I always thought that would be such a great combination of conflict and relationship to explore. That was something that was in my very, very, very first pitch and my very first meeting at Marvel — I was like, ‘I want to see this kid go up against this bad motherf—ker,’ you know? Tony Stark is like the cool, supportive rich uncle. Nick Fury is more like the mean, new stepdad. And I just thought it would be really fun to see those two worlds collide.”
