WATCH: Samuel L Jackson tells fans ‘You have to get past the Avengers and Marvel!’

January 21st, 2019 by Marc Comments

IGN recently say Samuel L Jackson down to react to comments on their site about his new movie, Glass.

While most are humourous – and NSFW – one in particular got our attention.

With many comments linking Glass to The Avengers, Jackson looks at the camera and tells the viewers: “You have to get past the Avengers and Marvel s**t at some point ok? Other f***ing people make movies“.

With a world where fans can very often polarise over franchises such as Marvel and DC, it’s nice that Nick Fury himself – sorry, Sam – is telling people to move on and watch other things too!

We love this guy!

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
