The final time we noticed him in “Spider-Man: Far From House,” the true Nick Fury was chilling on a Skrull spaceship whereas his Skrull buddy Talos (Ben Mendelsohn) pretended to be him again on Earth. “He is up there making an attempt to course of what the f**ok occurred, you realize? And what his place on the planet is. The dying of Iron Man, the dying of Black Widow, with that stuff happening he simply sort of checked out,” Samuel L. Jackson defined.
Fury’s susceptible way of thinking is additional mirrored in his look, as “Secret Invasion” finds the character working with out his trademark eyepatch. It isn’t that the imaginative and prescient in his broken eye has been restored, both. The place “Captain Marvel” turned his blinded orb into one thing of a joke that poked enjoyable at Fury’s sense of delight (revealing that, opposite to rumors that he misplaced his eye doing one thing actually macho, the reality is he merely irritated an irritable Flerken disguised as an lovable orange cat), “Secret Invasion” repurposes it as an emblem of his emotional trauma and uncertainty post-“Endgame.” Here is how Jackson put it:
“He simply would not put on the patch. The patch is a part of who the sturdy Nick Fury was. It is a part of his vulnerability now. You may take a look at it and see he is not this completely indestructible individual. He would not really feel like that man.”
Between digging deeper into Fury as a personality (together with his shadier dealings previously) and a world conspiracy plotline that entails shape-shifting Skrulls trying to quietly safe high-ranking positions of energy all over the world, “Secret Invasion” has the potential to be one of many extra compelling MCU entries this facet of “Endgame.” We’ll see how every part shakes out when the present premieres June 21, 2023, on Disney+.
