Nick Fury and Phil Coulson to be Digitally De-Aged in CAPTAIN MARVEL

Marvel Studios is coming very close to concluding filming for CAPTAIN MARVEL. It takes place in the 90s with actor Samuel L. Jackson reprising his role as a younger Nick Fury, with both of his eyes intact, as well as a younger Agent Phil Coulson, played by actor Clark Gregg.

Seeing as how the movie takes place over twenty years ago, it seemed obvious for Marvel Studios to use their actor de-aging technology on both Jackson and Gregg. During an interview with studio head Kevin Feige, SlashFilm was able to confirm both Jackson and Gregg will in fact be digitally de-aged for CAPTAIN MARVEL.

"...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 [Captain Marvel]. So that’ll certainly be the one...

"And Coulson, right?

"And Coulson. So that’ll be the first one where it’s a character for the whole movie, as opposed to a glimpse at a certain period of time. It’s the whole movie..."

Marvel Studios has used, and further developed, this de-aging software on actors Robert Downey Jr., Kurt Russell, and Michael Douglas in past Marvel Cinematic Universe movies. Each time it has been used, the de-aging process looks better and better and it is once again used in ANT-MAN AND THE WASP where it looks so spot-on.

CAPTAIN MARVEL releases in the U.S. on March 8, 2019.
