‘Captain Marvel’ To Use Revolutionary New Technology To De-Age Samuel L. Jackson

The heavily anticipated Marvel film, Captain Marvel, is coming out soon, and fans can’t help but obsess over it. While most of the details remain under wraps, it’s been reported that the movie will be set in the 90’s. The plot will focus primarily on the origin story of Brie Larson’s character, Carol Danvers. Other Marvel favorites, Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson) and Phil Coulson (Clark Gregg) will also be featured. But how are the producers going to deal with their obvious age gap?!

He then adds, “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.  So it’s possible, assuming that works. It’s possible.”
