Samuel L. Jackson's Nick Fury will be back in action in 2019's Captain Marvel - but the film won't show where Fury is now, it'll show where he's been in the past. Speaking about his role with The A.V. Club, Jackson confirmed that Captain Marvel will be an origin story, and that Fury himself will look, well, a little bit different.
"We’re going back now, and I meet Captain Marvel in more of an origin story," Jackson explained. "You’ll see Nick Fury with another guy’s face, 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."
Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige previously said the film would be set in the 1990s, and would involve a villainous Skrull. In previous films, Fury has alluded to the loss of his eye saying he lost it by "trusting someone" - potentially that shapeshifting Skrull.
Captain Marvel is due out in theaters March 8, 2019.
