Bruce Willis as Nick Fury?

BruceWillis-Tears.jpgI’m not so sure that this is a good idea for Bruce Willis. His career is on the uptake again and he really has returned to form with noticeably increased acting ability, and although that’s my opinion, it’s darned right too! So taking the role of Nick Fury in a comic book adaptation might be deemed as a bit of a wrong decision. According to Dark Horizons:

Bruce Willis is being tipped to play Nick Fury Agent of Shield in the film adaptation of the comic says SFX Magazine & Moviehole.

The eye-patched adorned, cigar-chompin Marvel comic character is the director of an international espionage organization called S.H.I.E.L.D, who are constantly going up against rogues like the wicked Hydra. Samuel L. Jackson was rumoured to be up for the lead last year.

The last outing for this franchise was with David Hasselhoff, and currently we only really have a few comic adaptations that I would class as really good. Spiderman, Batman, X-Men and Hellboy. That actually seems rather a lot, but not when you consider how many are being churned out, and Batman has just made it back while Hellboy is on the strength of one movie.

I just feel that this wouldn’t be a great move for him, he’s quoted as saying that he’s getting too old for the action role, and he has certainly proven he can manage non-action roles really well. Then there’s the fact that the comic adaptation bucket is about to be overfilled with movies…I’m not sure Nick Fury would come out slopping around the top. What are your thoughts? Should he take the chance with his career? Would Nick Fury make it to the topline of comic adaptations?
