Marvel Studios has used this digital makeup technology before, but never to this extent and never this seamlessly
When a Starforce mission goes awry, Vers winds up back on Earth, where her arrival is investigated by a young S.H.I.E.L.D. agent named Nick Fury. He’s played, as in The Avengers and Iron Man franchises, by Samuel L. Jackson — only this time he’s been de-aged about 25 years with the help of special effects. (Captain Marvel is set in 1995, a wondrous time of Blockbuster Video stores and on-the-nose needle drops.) Marvel Studios has used this digital makeup technology before, but never to this extent and never this seamlessly — after a couple minutes, you simply forget Jackson is actually a bald, 70-year-old man and just accept that they somehow got the guy who was in The Negotiator to travel through time to the present day and play this part. Jackson steals scene after scene as Carol’s pursuer turned partner.
