One of the fan debates surrounding Captain Marvel when it was revealed that Nick Fury would appear in the movie has been whether or not the movie will reveal how he loses his eye. Most fans are convinced it’ll happen in the movie, while there are others who doubt that. Now we have confirmation that it does happen, although we’ll have to wait for the movie to see the details.
Samuel L. Jackson spoke to Entertainment Tonight about how Captain Marvel will flesh out Fury’s backstory (including hints that he has a family), and the first thing he said was that the movie would explain the eye:
“You’ll see, specifically, the origin of what happened to his eye.”
One of the popular fan theories is that it’s Goose who claws his eye out (the scars in Captain America: The Winter Soldier could’ve been caused by a rampaging alien cat), or it would be Talos who causes it as he’s disguised as someone Fury probably trusts.
