Samuel Jackson’s character Nick Fury has been MIA for quite a long period of time, he was seen in Captain America: Winter Soldier and then he briefly appeared in the post-credits of Avengers: Infinity War, where he witnessed the horrors unleashed by Thanos when he snapped his fingers. He saw his S.H.I.E.L.D. agent Mariah Hill turned into dust, as a result, he immediately alerted Carol Danvers aka Captain Marvel just before he met the same fate.
Well, he is confirmed to show up in the upcoming Captain Marvel solo movie set in the 1990’s against the background of ancient Kree-Skrull war. He will be seen with both his eyes intact for the first time. We will learn about the back-story of how he lost one in combat. Along with him, Agent Coulson will also have an important role in the movie.
Till now, the Infinity War writers have maintained that deaths were permanent and unlikely to be reversed, but fans have remained adamant.
Markus said: “[Avengers 4] doesn’t do what you think it does. It is a different movie than you think it is. Also…[the deaths are] real. I just want to tell you it’s real, and the sooner you accept that the sooner you will be able to move on to the next stage of grief”.
But, Samuel Jackson may have revealed a huge spoiler as he took to Instagram and confirmed that he is filming for Spiderman: Far From Home in London. It’s indeed Nick Fury’s facial hair and he has been asked to report to the sets by Marvel Studios. This clearly suggests that the Thanos snap will be reversed at the end of Avengers 4 as Spiderman: Far From Home is set immediately after the events of Avengers 4.
“I feel like with Avengers 4, because it was made before there was any response to Avengers 3, it’s really pure in that regard. The storytelling is very pure. It’s without any sort of external noise creeping in at,” Joe Russo told Deadline during SDCC 2018.
He added: “We’ve been in post-production on [Avengers 4] since the release of Infinity War and we’ve got some additional photography that we’re doing in a month or so.”
“You know, we’re very proud of it. I think ultimately Avengers 4 may be our best work for Marvel. I think we’ve grown with every movie that we’ve made there. We’ve grown with the characters. We’ve grown with the cast. As filmmakers we’re very happy and very excited with the movie.”
