Nick Fury may have started the Avengers initiative back in 2008 with the post-credits scene of Iron Man, but the catalyst that set the assembly in motion will apparently be revealed in Captain Marvel next year.
Samuel L. Jackson will be portraying a younger version of Nick Fury in the upcoming Captain Marvel, as the film will be set in the 90’s. EW shared a remarkable first photo of the actor in his younger form along with details about his role in the film. You can see the image below:
Fury is shown in his paper-pushing-desk-agent days before Carol Danvers enters his life and changes his viewpoint of the world. He said the following:
“This is a mind-changing, attitude-changing moment for him that leads him to become the person that we know, he [now] understands that there are these other things out there. He understands that they’re not all enemies, and we do need to find allies who have specific kinds of skills that humans don’t have. And trying to convince people above him is a difficult task because they haven’t seen it or experienced it.”
It seems like the Fury we will see in Captain Marvel will be different from what we have seen or known until now. In fact, his experience in Captain Marvel could somewhat be the reason that led to the Avengers initiative later. Fury wanted to protect the universe by using powerful forces and the Avengers made his wish come true. All of this may not have happened had he not crossed paths with Carol Danvers.
Directed by Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck, Captain Marvel stars Brie Larson, Mckenna Grace, Jude Law, Gemma Chan, Ben Mendelsohn, Samuel L. Jackson, Robert Kazinsky, Lashana Lynch, Colin Ford, Kenneth Mitchell, Annette Bening, Clark Gregg, Lee Pace, Djimon Hounsou, Algenis Perez Soto, Rune Temte, Ana Ayora, and Chuku Modu.
The story follows Carol Danvers as she becomes one of the universe’s most powerful heroes when Earth is caught in the middle of a galactic war between two alien races. Set in the 1990s, “Captain Marvel” is an all-new adventure from a previously unseen period in the history of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
Captain Marvel will hit theaters on March 8th, 2019.
