Swank and Jackson in Iron Man
According to an interview with Avi Arad both Hilary Swank and Samuel L. Jackson are set to appear in the Iron Man film. Since we already heard that Jackson is appearing to kick start a film with him as a comic book hero, the question raises itself, is Swank set to do the same?
We heard that Samuel L. Jackson was set to appear in a cameo in Iron Man to pave the way for a full Nick Fury film, and that Hilary Swank was set to cameo, but that was very much a rumour. Now it looks as though Avi Arad has confirmed.
"How do you know [about that]?," a stunned Arad replied when asked about Swank. After a few beats, he admitted: "It's a cameo"…
..."The Sam thing was supposed to be the biggest secret of them all," he shrugged. "It's amazing how it got out."
Are his comments over at MTV Movies Blog, comments which do raise the question of why Swank is appearing in a superhero film.
Considering her career to date it's not really something you would expect to see her do, appear in a superhero film, and yet here she is. Mind you if she's going to appear in any then Iron Man would probably be one of the best bets for her. Could it, like the other cameo appearances we see, be there as a placeholder for a future superhero film for the actress?
