On the heels of the release of Avengers: Infinity War, we have some Captain Marvel set photos to keep your Marvel high going. The images, which come via Hollywood Pipeline, give us our first look at 90s Nick Fury.
Sam Jackson’s Nick Fury first appeared in the post-credit scene of 2008s Iron Man. Since then he has appeared in 6 other Marvel Studios films, becoming the linchpin of the MCU. Then news broke from SDCC last year that Fury would return in the upcoming Captain Marvel. The only catch was the film will be set in the 1990s meaning audiences would get a glimpse at a younger Nick Fury.
These photos give us a look at what we should expect Fury to look like, minus the possible use of de-aging technology. MCU alum Clark Gregg, who is also returning as Agent Phil Coulson, recently mentioned the possibility of using the technology to de-age himself for the film. This technology is something Marvel has utilized several times in the past on actors such as Michael Douglas and Robert Downey Jr.
Captain Marvel will star Oscar winner Brie Larson and follow the story of Carol Danvers, an Air Force pilot who gets caught up in an intergalactic war. The film will also see the return of Ronan the Accuser to the MCU. Played by Lee Pace, Ronan first appeared as the antagonist in 2014s Guardians of the Galaxy.
