You’d think the guy who plays Nick Fury would be aware of that.

The original punchline was “that’s not what a comic book movie is”, referring to the “grounded” part but I think it depends on the comic. At best that would be Hollywood’s definition since they’re part of the media culture that looks down on comics and video games. Books are the only ones allowed into their club. But even then M. Night Shyamalan’s sequel to both Unbreakable and Split (http://variety.com/2018/film/news/universal-unveils-first-footage-of-samuel-l-jackson-sarah-paulson-in-m-night-shyamalans-glass-1202786702/) doesn’t qualify as a comic book movie. And yet in the article linked to that’s actually Samuel L. Jackson’s quote in Variety. It just rubbed me the wrong way and I’m not even sure it really is the first.
As for Jackson, I took an image of him, copy/pasted it into Clip Studio Paint, and traced over it, then translated it into my art style. I think it came out pretty good considering how badly freehanding it seems to go, even with the picture right there. It’s just this time I found a pose I could translate.
