Samuel L Jackson Teases Young Nick Fury In Captain Marvel

Captain Marvel will officially come out next week. We couldn’t be more excited to see Carol Danvers (Brie Larson) hit the big screen.

One of the more interesting parts of the film is Samuel L Jackson’s involvement, showing how Marvel has perfected their age regression technology. Like, seriously, this is some impressive stuff they’re using for both Jackson and Clark Gregg, who will appear as Phil Coulson in the film.

Even though we’re enjoying the technology, this is a unique opportunity to see Nick Fury before he was a spymaster, when he joined a “larger universe” for the first time.

Talking with Entertainment Weekly, Jackson shares the differences between Nick Fury in 1995 to Nick Fury in 2008 when he meets Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr) for the first time.

He says the main difference is that the younger Fury doesn’t “have a chip on his shoulder yet”.

He also added, “There’s something still light about Nick Fury. He’d been in some dark stuff, so there’s still a bunch of stuff that hasn’t been explored about him through the war and through his years as a spy in the shadow world or whatever. But now he’s on a desk. It’s kinda like he’s on hiatus. He’s sitting at this desk trying to figure out, ‘Okay, where’s the threat coming from?’ [Carol is] his first extraterrestrial. She opens up a whole new world for him.”

It will definitely be interesting seeing the man who seemingly knows or suspects everything in his younger days.

Captain Marvel hits theatres on March 8th.
