Samuel L. Jackson’s surprise cameo in Iron Man as Nick Fury will definitely be in the list of most memorable movie cameos for 2008, and a shoo-in for the best film cameos of all time. Jackson is an avowed comicbook fan so any opportunity to appear in a comicbook property is a treat for him. Much like his new role as the Octopus in The Spirit.
The Spirit is based on the award-winning comicbook by Will Eisner and is directed by another comicbook legand, Frank Miller. Jackson plays the arch-nemesis of The Spirit. Comic Con recently released the first picture of Jackson as The Octopus, and to say that he looks so bad ass in the photo is a vast understatement.
