… what’s been done here is absolutely next level as Jackson is exquisitely made to look exactly as he did back in the mid-1990s
Of course, no Marvel Studios solo movie is ever really ‘solo,’ and Captain Marveloutfits its lead with one the most impressive supporting casts they’ve assembled, including Samuel L. Jackson delivering not just his best Nick Fury performance yet (the veteran spy as badass and witty as ever), but also doing his part to change cinematic history. While we’ve seen some incredible de-aging visual effects utilized in movies before (including Marvel titles like Ant-Man and Captain America: Civil War), what’s been done here is absolutely next level as Jackson is exquisitely made to look exactly as he did back in the mid-1990s. The work is utterly flawless, and as you watch the brilliant buddy cop-esque banter between Fury and Carol there shockingly isn’t a single moment where you break from the reality of the movie to admire just how amazing the digital work is. Needless to say, it’s an advancement that could change blockbusters forever, and it doesn’t hurt that it’s an icon shepherding the way.
