Marvel confirmed a long-standing rumor that Samuel L. Jackson would return as Nick Fury in Captain Marvel at San Diego Comic-Con International 2017. But as the movie will be set in the 1990s, we couldn’t help but wonder about the character’s appearance. A newly leaked video and photos from the set provided some answers.
To date, the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s Nick Fury has been bald, goatee’d, and eye-patched, dressed in a black turtleneck under a matching trench coat. But he’ll look quite different in the March 8, 2019 release, simply because Carol Danvers' first solo outing takes place at a time prior to the loss of his eye, so the patch will be missing.
The 69-year-old actor didn’t add that the character will lose additional Nick Fury signature traits in this movie, but a new video and several photos from the set show Fury with a full head of hair and two fully functioning eyes, and without the goatee, trench coat, and turtleneck. Also, he looks quite young, but the presence of motion-capture dots on his face indicate that additional de-aging is required.
In the video and photos, Fury and a Kree armor-clad Danvers (Brie Larson), appear to be arguing. It's unclear whether they’re acquainted or have just met, but it’s obvious that something’s up. In fact, the aviator-turned-superhero attempts to take off a couple of times, only to be blocked by the SHIELD agent. In one still, Captain Marvel shoves Fury, apparently trying to hide from someone.
