Samuel L. Jackson's best geek role: Mr. Glass or Nick Fury?
Mr. Glass was introduced as comic book theorist in "Unbreakable" who believed David Dunn, the sole survivor of the Eastrail 177 train accident, has superhuman abilities. In the movie's shocking twist, he turned out to be the mastermind behind the train accident.
After playing such an iconic villain, M. Night Shyamalan wanted Samuel L. Jackson to reprise his role in a sequel. "Split" was tied into "Unbreakable," inspiring the Eastrail 177 Trilogy with another blockbuster: "Glass."
Jackson signed a nine-film contract to co-star as Nick Fury in several Marvel Cinematic Universe movies. Not only do fans love his portrayal as the live-action Fury, but Marvel decided to use Jackson's likeness in animated series and comics.
