Samuel L Jackson


It's customary to have Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson) in every Marvel movie, and he'll have a major role in "Captain Marvel." But because it's set in the '90s, the 69-year-old actor will have to be de-aged by 25 years for the entire film, Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige said.

In other words, Jackson will look more or less like he did in 1993's "Jurassic Park."


"I think having the option is pretty amazing," Feige told SlashFilm. "And I think having the technology and even without spoiling anything, Sam Jackson is shooting a movie for us right now that takes, where he’s entirely 25 years younger the whole movie.

He'll get the same digital airbrushing Kurt Russell got in flashback scenes for "Guardians of the Galaxy, Vol. 2" and Michael Douglas do in "Ant-Man and the Wasp."

Clark Gregg (who plays Phil Coulson) will also get the de-aging treatment for "Captain Marvel."

Said Feige, "You have all the reference material [for these actors] and they have aged amazingly.  They’ve not aged like normal humans.  It’s like Paul Rudd... he somehow can do that effect in real life."

Ahh, Paul Rudd, who's conquered not just riding ants and quantum space , but aging and time itself!

"Captain Marvel," which stars Brie Larson as Carol Danvers, opens March 8, 2019.
