The lighter side of Nick Fury, the iconic character portrayed by Samuel Jackson in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, will be highlighted in the upcoming superhero film, Captain Marvel.
“He’s still a badass, but he kind of takes orders and listens to the people above him. He still has a light side that we don’t see a lot of in those other movies. So in Captain Marvel, he has this weird, ordinary person sense of humour.”
The actor also shared that it took him a while to get used to seeing the younger version of Fury, who has been digitally de-aged in the Brie Larson-fronted film.
“Part of the challenge for this particular film is I have two eyes and hair, and since the film takes place over 20 years ago, I had to forget who Nick Fury is at this present-day juncture in the MCU,” said Jackson.
