For the last decade, Samuel L Jackson has been portraying Nick Fury in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. He's an expected fixture, tying the universe into a semi-cohesive narrative. And you always expect that eye patch.

That all changes in the new Captain Marvel movie. The film is a prequel of sorts, set in the 1990s. To drive this change in time home, the trailers have shown Nick Fury with both eyes.


However, it seems we're not alone in being used to Sam Jackson only having one eye.



It was revealed in interviews for past movies, that Jackson has to learn his lines with one eye closed. During his filming for Captain America, had a difficulty with his lines that was tied to his visualization process.

Jackson said,

"The only problem that I didn't discover until we did the original Captain America was that I sat at home and I did all my studying, and when I got to work the next day, I was having difficulty seeing all the lines.
"I could only visualize half the page. I realized that, when I cut my eye off with the patch, I cut off half my sensory perception for learning.
"So now, when I learn lines as Nick Fury. I learn them with one hand covering one eye so that I can visualize the whole page."

But that didn't end when he got access to his other eye back. Even for Captain Marvel, Jackson had to learn his lines with one eye covered to get in character.

In an interview with SFX Magazine, Jackson said,

"So now when I'm actually doing Nick Fury, I cover my left eye when I'm learning my lines, so I still have the full visualization in my head. It's a very weird thing but it works."

I mean, if it works, it works, right?





To be honest, we're just weirded out to see him with both eyes.





Captain Marvel follows the adventure of Carol Danvers as she hunts down shape-shifting Skrulls on earth. She is aided by Nick Fury, and the most important character, her pet cat named Goose.

Speaking of Goose, Jackson has to lose his eye somehow, right?





The film premieres March 8th. It stars Brie Larson, Samuel L Jackson, Ben Mendelsohn, and Lashana Lynch and it's sure to be another hit!

There's no shortage of excellent horror fiction out there. Recently I read The Terror by Dan Simmons and can't remember the last time I felt that claustrophobic and nervous. But I am also a fan of quite a few classics. Are there any other horror books that capture grief as effectively as Stephen King's Pet Sematary? What other book evokes folk horror as beautifully as Thomas Tryon's Harvest Home? Let's not forget this wonderful classic: The Haunting of Hill House. I could rave about that one (and Shirley Jackson) for days. All of these books left their mark on me and yes, I'd include them on a list (if I were to make one) of some of the scariest books I've read.

People had their own opinions to share––and books to recommend––after Redditor Tylerisdumber asked the online community,
