Meet a much younger Nick Fury in leaked Captain Marvel images

April 30th, 2018 by Marc Comments

We’ve known for a while that the upcoming Captain Marvel movie would see the hero’s story beginning in the 1980s and it will see Carol Danvers (Brie Larson) beginning her story and that we would also see Samuel L Jackson return as a much younger Nick Fury.

And now we have our first look – albeit leaked – at Jackson’s Nick Fury with hair, no scar and two eyes!

The images of co-stars Brie Larson and Samuel L Jackson filming in Hollywood last week.

The images look great and we can’t wait to meet Fury and other (here) for the first time again. Can you?

The film stars Academy Award® winner Brie Larson, Samuel L. Jackson, Ben Mendelsohn, Djimon Hounsou, Lee Pace, Lashana Lynch, Gemma Chan, Algenis Perez Soto, Rune Temte, McKenna Grace, with Clark Gregg, and Jude Law.

Based on the Marvel comic character first appearing in 1968, the story follows Carol Danvers as she becomes one of the universe’s most powerful heroes when Earth is caught in the middle of a galactic war between two alien races.  Set in the 1990s, “Captain Marvel” is an all-new adventure from a previously unseen period in the history of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
