Previously rumored and then debunked by the films director, it’s now been confirmed that Samuel L. Jackson and Hilary Swank will be making cameo appearances in Iron Man.
The confirmation comes from Marvel Studios producer Avi Arad who told MTV of the news over the weekend.
“How do you know [about that]?,” a stunned Arad replied when asked about Swank. After a few beats, he admitted: “It’s a cameo.”
And on Jackson:
Following along the lines of secret “Iron Man” actors, the man behind the “Spider-Man” and “X-Men” films dodged a question about Samuel L. Jackson’s foreshadowing scenes as Nick Fury, saying “I can’t talk about that.”
Clearly a bit frustrated, Arad then amended himself. “The Sam thing was supposed to be the biggest secret of them all,” he shrugged. “It’s amazing how it got out.”
