Samuel L. Jackson’s recent interview with the AV Club has caused a bit of a stir amongst MCU fans. His upcoming role in the Captain Marvel movie will take place in the 90’s, giving moviegoers a look at a younger, less weathered Nick Fury.
“We’re going back now, and I meet Captain Marvel in more of an origin story. You’ll see Nick Fury with another guy’s face,” Jackson elaborated. He went on to say, “somebody that’s got two eyes, so that’s a whole big deal. You’ll see. It’s prior to the eye injury, no eye patch.”
The actor also mentioned the newfound easiness of the role due to having both eyes to read over his lines.
“It’ll be easier to learn my lines. It’s one of those weird kind of things. The first day I shot as Nick Fury with one eye, I couldn’t remember my lines. I was tired since we were coming from somewhere, so I thought it was fatigue. Then I realized I had learned my lines with two eyes. So, I had to start blocking my eye to learn my lines. It’s a stupid kind of thing, but it totally worked,” Jackson explained.
Set photos show Jackson alongside Cobie Smulders with both of his eyes free from injury.
