The Marvel Cinematic Universe is on a precipice, with just two more blockbusters left in Phase Three. But before the surviving heroes arm back up to take the fight to Thanos with Endgame, we’ll get Carol Danver’s origin story with Captain Marvel. Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck’s upcoming 90’s set blockbuster will greatly expand the shared universe, including familiar faces like Nick Fury, Phil Coulson, Korath and Ronan. Samuel L. Jackson’s signature character will have a major presence, as Captain Marvel and the Kree War are the first superheroic entities he came across.
Fans are eager to see the pairing of Carol Danvers and Nick Fury, as her entrance was teased during the post-credits scene of Avengers: Infinity War. With the movie just weeks away, new clips and trailers have been arriving to satiate the hunger of the fandom. Check out the two Marvel heroes spar with each other verbally in the clip below.
Is it March 8th yet? This is the longest clip we’ve seen of Samuel L. Jackson’s young Nick Fury, digitally de-aged through cutting-edge CGI. He looks picture perfect, and it’s clear that Fury and Carol Danvers are going to have serious chemistry when the blockbuster arrives in a matter of weeks.
This new footage comes to us from Flicks And The City Clips, and is presumably early into Carl Danvers and Nick Fury’s relationship. There was a scuffle of come sort previously, as Fury is rocking a fresh cut on his head. The two heroes try and get to know each other, and discern whether the other is a shape shifting Skrull. Carol wants Fury to tell details about his personal life, including some hilarious quirks including his first pet and even how he likes his toast cut. It’s clear that the duo enjoys each other, as they banter and smile through their introductions.
The relationship between Captain Marvel and Nick Fury will presumably be an important one, as Samuel L. Jackson is billed just below Brie Larson, and is heavily featured in the film’s marketing material. Fury has been largely absent in Phase Three, with the actor expressing his chagrin for being excluded from Captain America: Civil War and Black Panther. But he popped up briefly in the tail end of Infinity War, and is expected to be a major character in both Captain Marvel and Spider-Man: Far From Home.
This latest clip also shows how elusive and expansive the Skrull threat to Earth will be in Captain Marvel. Because the alien forces can change their shape, presumably anyone Carol Danvers and Nick Fury interact with could be a spy. Good thing for the title character, Nick Fury knows a think or two about being a spy. Of course, that doesn’t mean that the duo will end up unscathed. Captain Marvel is expected to reveal how the S.H.I.E.L.D. favorite injured his eye, while also revealing the origin of the other returning characters.
Captain Marvel will arrive in theaters on March 8, 2019. In the meantime, check out our 2019 release list to plan your next trip to the movies.
