Captain Marvel directors Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck discussed alternate ways Samuel L Jackson’s Nick Fury could have lost his eye during an interview with ComicBookMovie.com.
Captain Marvel followed the origin story of Brie Larson’s Carol Danvers, but the film also allowed audiences to witness the early adventures of Samuel L Jackson’s Nick Fury years before he assembled Earth’s Mightiest Heroes. In fact, Captain Marvel finally answered the mystery surrounding the loss of Nick Fury’s eye and most fans were surprised to learn Samuel L. Jackson’s character lost it after an irritated Goose the “Cat” scratched him.
Of course, some fans were disappointed that Samuel L. Jackson’s Nick Fury didn’t lose his eye in a more serious conflict and co-director Ryan Fleck noted the filmmakers considered alternative ways for the character to sustain his injury. However, Ryan Fleck explained that alternatives such as a battle with a Skrull were deemed too obvious:
“There were definitely a lot of discussions and that was not the first idea on the table. You’re probably going to ask me what some of the other ideas were and I don’t know if I can tell you that, not because I’m hiding anything, but because there were just so many absurd ideas we had. There was a strong contender for a while that a fight with the Skrulls seemed like the most obvious choice but then the more we thought about it, it just became too obvious.
Since this is just as much Nick Fury’s origin story as Captain Marvel’s, we thought that it would be a fun piece of his backstory that moving forward, he was creative a new narrative for himself that he didn’t really talk about but he was fine with people wanting to muse about a potentially more serious way he could have lost his eye.”

New ‘Avengers: Endgame’ Character Posters Feature Surviving & Fallen Heroes
Marvel Studios released new Avengers: Endgame character posters for both the surviving and fallen heroes of Thanos' decimation in Infinity War.

The line-up includes Robert Downey Jr. as Iron Man, Brie Larson as Captain Marvel, Bradley Cooper's Rocket Raccoon, Scarlett Johansson as Black Widow, Paul Rudd as Ant-Man, Mark Ruffalo as Bruce Banner, Tessa Thompson as Valkyrie, and many more!

Endgame will serve as both a follow up to Avengers: Infinity War as well as the conclusion to the 22 films that came before it, which have now been dubbed as the Infinity Saga by Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige, before Marvel kicks off Phase 4 of the Marvel Cinematic Universe with Spider-Man: Far From Home in July.
While plot details still remain under wraps, Earth's Mightiest Heroes are expected to team up with Brie Larson's Captain Marvel and utilize the Quantum Realm in their efforts to undo the decimation from Thanos' snap and bring back half of the universe's population, who were turned to dust by the Mad Titan.
