Nick Fury: Agent Of S.H.I.E.L.D.

2

The gang back in 1998...

Easy to forget now, but part of the reason we’ve all gone so bananas over the current Marvel-movie cycle is that, at least before Spider-Man (2002), their stable rarely received the big-screen craft and care it deserved.

This telemovie epitomises the cheap, lazy, and unimaginative treatment our heroes had been getting.

The casting of David Hasselhoff as Fury (fighting terrorists threatening Manhattan with a killer virus) lays down tonal problems from frame one.

It’s written by future The Dark Knight scribe David S. Goyer, which suggests he at least learned from his mistakes.
