David Hasselhoff’s ‘Nick Fury’ DVD Set To Hit Best Buy Sept. 30
(Via MTV Splash Page)MTV Splash Page said:Looks like “Iron Man” is gonna have a bit of competition…in the DVD section of Best Buy, that is.
For all you Marvel Zombies out there who drew a big, red circle around September 30 on your calendars as a reminder for when the “Iron Man” DVD — jam-packed with super-cool extras — will be hitting stores, you might wanna bring some extra cash along. Best Buy has announced that they will be offering an exclusive DVD of the 1998 “Nick Fury: Agent of S.H.I.E.L.D” film, starring the one and only David Hasselhoff.
Written by David S. Goyer (”Batman Begins” and a slew of other comic-based films) and produced by Avi Arad and Stan Lee, the film centers around Nick Fury (played by The ‘Hoff) , former director of S.H.I.E.L.D., who is called out of retirement after his longtime nemesis, the dangerous and sexy Viper, threatens to destroy Manhattan. The film originally premiered on Fox back in 1998 and was subsequently rebroadcast on The Sci-Fi Channel, and despite garnering less-than-stellar reviews, has become a cult classic among hardcore comic fans.
Have you ever seen “Nick Fury: Agent of S.H.I.E.L.D.?” Will you be getting this DVD along with “Iron Man,” or do you think The Hoff’s portrayal of Fury is best left forgotten (or at least overshadowed by Sam Jackson’s take)? Let us know in the comments.
