We’ve known for some time that Samuel L. Jackson’s Nick Fury would have a role in the upcoming Captain Marvel film. Like Captain America: The First Avenger, this film wouldn’t take place in the present day, but rather the 1990s.

This means that Fury would be a decades-younger version of himself. Speaking with The A.V. Club, Jackson discussed the upcoming appearance from the S.H.I.E.L.D. head, and confirmed one rumored theory about a certain eyepatch.

“But 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 eyepatch.”

Admittedly, the line kind of throws me off — especially where he talks about Nick Fury having “another guy’s face.”

Does this mean he’s had a face replacement after a mission, meaning that Jackson may not be playing him? Or does it simply mean that Marvel Studios will be working their de-aging magic to give the character a younger look? It worked with actors like Kurt Russel and Michael Douglas, so there’s no reason it shouldn’t work for him, so seeing another actor play the character wouldn’t make a lot of sense, logistically.
