In his attempt to avenge the less-than-rave review the New York Times gave The Avengers, Samuel L. Jackson may have just made a hero of A.O. Scott.
“#Avengers fans,NY Times critic AO Scott needs a new job! Let’s help him find one! One he can ACTUALLY do!” tweeted Jackson in response to Scott’s sarcasm-laced review, which included the observation that Jackson’s Nick Fury “is more master of ceremonies than mission commander.”
But instead of getting fans to pile on Scott, the veteran critic found out who his friends were—and he exclusively told E! News how “touched” he was by the response.
