Guest artist Alex Maleev did cast the lifeless Dominic Purcell as Nick Fury, didn’t he? I’m not imagining it?
Now, put away your pitchforks: This isn’t a “swipe”; it’s just an apparent instance of an artist basing his depiction of a character on an actor (see Ultimate Nick Fury). I find the practice distracting, because instead of getting into the story I end up scanning crowd scenes for the supporting cast of The Sopranos. Or, worse, I “hear” the dialogue in the voice of the actor.
There’s a third problem with “casting,” of course: that the Nick Fury in Mighty Avengers ends up looking nothing like the Nick Fury in any of the other mainstream Marvel titles. But that’s still preferable to imagining Purcell’s monotone recitation of all of the Colonel’s lines.
