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 something seeing a person litter that drives me up the wall. I remember being a kid and being explicitly told to hold on to my trash and not just throw it in the street. As a kid, I distinctly remember being made fun of for not just throwing the bag of chips I'd just eaten or an empty soda bottle into the gutter.

I can't imagine doing that. Why?! We truly treat this planet as if we have somewhere else to go.

When you're in the market for a slew of very specific facts that all fall under the same general theme, the internet really delivers.

Forget streamlined public health capabilities and revolutionized human communication, the true beauty of the internet is all the random, barely useful information you can find when a bunch odd people decide to assemble and swap info.

Working in a doctor's office means helping people when they're at their lowest. Sometimes, that leads to wonderful moments when the patient is thankful for all the advice and care you provided. Other times, it means taking something out of someone's bum.

Turns out, that second one happens a lot more than you might think.

I love movies. The cinema has long been a savior of mine and has given me some of my greatest inspirations. But being an avid film watcher has also made me quite the critic. I can always tell when a movie is worth the money to see in theaters or wait until it's on basic cable with commercials. The signs of mediocrity abound, and sometimes they aren't that difficult to spot.

Redditor u/fjv08kl wanted to know what is obvious about mediocre cinema by asking.... What are some subtle 'red flags' that tell you a movie is not worth watching?
