With Samuel L. Jackson and Brie Larson having delivered gold in Captain Marvel as Nick Fury and Carol Danvers, fans are anxious for the next time we see Fury teaming up with a young hero and that’s Peter Parker in Spider-Man: Far From Home. We see from the trailers that Fury will have a substantial role in the next Spidey movie and considering how fun Parker is, we’re assuming to get the same sort of dynamic that we saw between the SHIELD director and Cap [Marvel].
According to Jackson, though; the relationship will be different – though, we’ll still have laughs.
“The energy level’s totally different. The dynamic between the characters too,” Jackson teased, “Spider-Man’s a little more reluctant to engage with Nick Fury than Carol Danvers was. He has an intimidation factor. Even though he is Spider-Man, and I’m just Nick Fury, but… Fury’s reputation precedes him.”
As to why we saw such a light-hearted Fury in Captain Marvel, the actor explained:
“There’s something still light about Nick Fury. He’d been in some dark stuff, so there’s still a bunch of stuff that hasn’t been explored about him through the war and through his years as a spy in the shadow world or whatever,” Jackson told Entertainment Weekly, “But now he’s on a desk. It’s kinda like he’s on hiatus. He’s sitting at this desk trying to figure out, ‘Okay, where’s the threat coming from?’ [Carol is] his first extraterrestrial. She opens up a whole new world for him.”
You can catch Captain Marvel in theaters now and watch Jackson in Far From Home on July 5th.
A girl with too many fandoms to count.
