Samuel L. Jackson Says Nick Fury Will Have "Another Guy's Face" in CAPTAIN MARVEL... What!?
We know that Nick Fury is going to play a decent sized role in Captain Marvel. The movie is set in the 90s and he will be fighting alongside Carol Danvers as they find themselves in the middle of a war with the Skrull alien race.
With the film being set in the 90s, I've been wondering how they will handle Nick Fury's age. Would they cast a younger actor? Would they digitally make Samuel L. Jackson look younger? Well, in a recent interview with AV Club, Samuel L. Jackson offered some interesting information about Nick Fury, and I'm not quite sure what to make of it. He says that he'll have another guys face! Here's the quote:
"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, 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."
Another face? What the hell does that mean!? Will he use some kind of technology to change his appearance like he has in the comics? Does it just mean that he'll have two eyes? I don't know, but saying that Nick Fury will have another guys face is certainly an intriguing comment. He goes on to talk about how having two eyes will make it easier for him to learn 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."
I think the most likely scenario for the whole " another guy's face" thing is that Jackson will be made to look over 20 years younger, but we'll just have to wait and see. What do you think he meant with his comment?
Brie Larson will play Captain Marvel whose alter ego is Air Force pilot Carol Danvers whose DNA is fused with that of an alien resulting in her superpowers. Ben Mendelsohn will play the main villain in the film, and Law is set to play the lead male role.
Captain Marvel is slated to be released on March 8th, 2019.
