Earlier today we learned a little bit about Nick Fury’s status in the 90s MCU that we’ll see in Captain Marvel, where he’ll be a S.H.I.E.L.D. “desk jockey” and not the Fury we’ve come to know in the MCU so far. Now we know how Phil Coulson will fit into it.
While Nick Fury will be working behind that desk, he’ll be introduced to a young rookie S.H.I.E.L.D. agent according to EW:
Captain Marvel also includes Fury’s first meeting with Clark Gregg’s rookie agent Phil Coulson — and there are other surprises, too. “He has a greater sense of humor in this than anything I’ve done before,” Jackson says.
So now all of the pieces are falling into place with Captain Marvel, and all we need is the trailer to see this all in action. That should be coming very soon!
