Samuel L. Jackson posts a mysterious Instagram pic from the set of Captain Marvel
Samuel L. Jackson, who plays Nick Fury in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, just posted a mysterious pic of himself getting a lifecast on his Instagram account. The pic comes from the set of the upcoming Marvel film Captain Marvel. In the post, he says, “Caught a lil’ nap while going thru the process today!#captainmarvel#nickgettingfurious#lifecastsabitch” You can check out the image and the post below.
Commenters are speculating that Nick Fury is a Skrull, which you can see in the post here.
The Captain Marvel cast includes Brie Larson as the title hero along with Jackson as a younger (and two-eyed) Nick Fury, Gemma Chan as Kree spy and genetiscist, Minn-Erva, DeWanda Wise (She’s Gotta Have It), Ben Mendelsohn (Rogue One,Ready Player One), and Jude Law (Sherlock Holmes). The film will be a “period piece” for Marvel Studios and take place in the early 1990s with the Skrulls as the primary villains.
Mississippi Grind‘s Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck will direct the Captain Marvel movie, which has a script by Geneva Robertson-Dworet (upcoming Tomb Raider and Gotham City Sirens), Meg LeFauve (Inside Out) & Nicole Perlman (Guardians of the Galaxy). Kevin Feige will produce the film. Marvel Studios’ Louis D’Esposito, Victoria Alonso, and Jonathan Schwartz serve as executive producers alongside Stan Lee.
In the regular Marvel Comics continuity, Carol Danvers made her first appearance in 1968’s Marvel Super-Heroes #13. A Security Chief in the US air force, Danvers would later be transformed into the superhero Ms. Marvel following an explosion involving Kree technology. More recently, Danvers took on the identity of Captain Marvel after being “promoted” to the moniker of the former Kree superhero.
Captain Marvel is set to hit theaters on March 8, 2019 with Avengers 4 set to follow on May 3, 2019. What do you guys think of the picture from Samuel L. Jackson? Is he a Skrull? What do you think this is for? Let us know your thoughts in the comments.
