It doesn't really matter what website the link was posted on. I don't know if it being top ten and everything is still the case since I haven't checked recently but for a long while including when that link was posted it was top ten and was even mentioned as one of marvel's fastest selling dvds. And when bet finally decided to air (though at 3 in the morning mind you) it would heavily trend each time it aired. Those things happened as I and many others saw it.
Anyway sorry for the off topic post but had to clear it up.

I'm sure. That's why on every other site it's not even listed including the year it was released. But whatever it happen because you guys believe it to be true.
Back to the topic at hand.........
A lot of people are worried that Marcus Fury will replace Nick Fury. I however, believe you guys(Marvel) are just taking the time to set him up as a kick butt Agent of the MU and still keep Nick Fury sr. relevant in the MU in some form. Am I wrong?Now can we please put this to rest.Originally Posted by TomBrevoort
Trident, that's what they have been saying and pro-Marcus folks have been saying. anti-Marcus folks need to not be anti-Marcus...but Pro classic Fury and not trash a character that is not taking anything away far the old Fury. Support his appearances, and have a sound argument, without Bashing Marcus.
Old Fury is like James Bond, Clint Eastwood and General Patton rolled into one. Marcus is like Jason Bourne. They are not the same. There is room for both. Nick sr has not been in that role for a very long time.
I'm not sure this will add much to (fun) conversation you guys are having, but......
I think the movie Fury should have been the son of a WWII Fury (a la Howling Commandos) that could have featured in the first Captain America film. That way when Steve awoke in modern times it would have been a nice link back to his past. Granted this would have been a basic copy/repeat of having Howard Stark in the film too and Sam Jackson isn't mixed race, but it could have worked (okay at a stretch)
As for Marcus I don't think it's such a bad idea that Nick has a secret son, I do think it's a bit silly..... no beyond silly that he's lost his eye, shaved his head, grown a goatee and changed his name (just so the movie fans will have a point of reference). I have no problem with him working for S.H.I.E.L.D or being a previously unmentioned character (only Sentry bugs me on that level and maybe Jessica Jones), I do think Marvel is making a rod for its own back by doing such an obvious shoehorned plot twist/storyline.
Ultimately (ha) Marcus/Nick Jr won't be the long term Nick Fury because original one has too much links to various MU characters/history. I do fear the inevitable 'let's kill off the black guy' thing that Marvel does (RIP Goliath, Synch, Bishop as a good guy)
but there's nothing I can do about that

I haven't read through this whole thread, but it seems pretty clear to me that if they wanted both "Furys" to operate simultaneously, long into the future, they'd keep calling the kid "Marcus." The fact that they've gone to the trouble of naming him Nick (Jr.) is indicative, to me anyway, that one day he will ultimately replace the original. It might not be tomorrow, or a year from now, but I'm willing to bet within the next 5 years Nick, Sr. will be dunzo.
