Nick Fury may be one of the most important characters in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. But in 2019, when Samuel L. Jackson reprises the role for Captain Marvel starring Brie Larson, the S.H.I.E.L.D. director will lose his most distinct visual signature: His eye-patch. And after the still-untitled Avengers 4 in 2019, Nick Fury may be finished in the MCU.

In an A.V. Club interview, Jackson said Captain Marvel “is going back” in the MCU timeline, meaning the film will be the second period piece in the Marvel series (the first being Captain America: The First Avenger, set in World War II). And throughout Captain Marvel, Nick Fury will still have two eyes.

“You’ll see Nick Fury with another guy’s face,” Jackson said, “somebody that’s got two eyes, so that’s a whole big deal. You’ll see. It’s prior to the eye injury, no eye patch.”

Aside from his sleek leather trenchcoat and impeccably sharp black turtlenecks, Nick Fury’s eye patch is his most distinct visual attribute. It was the only feature that stayed with Nick Fury after comics writer Mark Millar reimagined Nick Fury from a square-jawed Caucasian man into a bald black male, whom he modeled after Samuel L. Jackson.

After seeing Millar’s Fury in the comics, Jackson arranged a deal to have dibs for an onscreen Nick Fury, which he eventually played in the infamous post-credits scene of 2008’s Iron Man.

Jackson also said he’s at the end of his deal with Marvel, referring to his role in the past tense. “I’m sort of the glue that holds all these guys together. I got them into the organization, into S.H.I.E.L.D., and every now and then I show up to remind them that S.H.I.E.L.D. has a purpose,” Jackson said, reminiscing. “It’s been a good job. It was a nine-picture deal. I did it. It was good.”

A quick tally of Jackson’s feature film appearances — not including his recurring bits in Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. — does indicate that Avengers 4 will be his final movie: Iron Man (2008), Iron Man 2 (2010), Captain America: The First Avenger (2011), The Avengers (2012), Captain America: The Winter Soldier (2014), Avengers: Age of Ultron (2015), Avengers: Infinity War (2018), Captain Marvel (2019), and Avengers 4 (2019). With all of that under his belt, Nick Fury’s deserved some time off.

Avengers: Infinity War will be released in theaters on May 4.

It’s not fair to blame the mustache Henry Cavill had for Mission: Impossible — Fallout for ruining Justice League, mostly because Superman’s weird CGI lip honestly didn’t even crack the top ten of that movie’s problems. But, it turns out that Fallout’s director Chris McQuarrie tried to help Justice League out.

If Nick Fury had the pager needed to contact Captain Marvel this whole time, then why did he wait until the post-credits scene of Avengers: Infinity War to call her? She could’ve been a big help in the Battle of New York or some other catastrophe, so why wait? One new Avengers 4 fan theory posits that Fury knew exactly when he was supposed to call Captain Marvel, and it’s because the Ancient One told him his future.

Thor’s electrifying arrival to Infinity War’s climactic battle in Wakanda might’ve just been the most thrilling moment in a movie full of thrilling moments, but it left some fans puzzled. How did Thor, Groot, and Rocket know where to go? Over the weekend, Infinity War’s directors revealed the answer, tying up a small plot hole that, to be honest, didn’t really need to be tied up.

Pretty much every hero in the Marvel Cinematic Universe rallied to fight Thanos in Avengers: Infinity War (they lost, but that’s not the point). One hero, though, was totally MIA after a brief bout with the Mad Titan at the start of the movie: the Hulk. Fans assumed the Hulk wouldn’t emerge when Bruce Banner tried to transform because the big green guy was scared of Thanos, but one of the film’s directors says that, actually, the Hulk isn’t a giant baby scaredy cat, thank you very much.

Teen Titans Go! to the Movies was a charming, iconoclastic delight in no small part because it totally dumped on some of DC’s many, many bad movies (ahem, Green Lantern). Perhaps the most overt burn, however, was at Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice’s expense, and it turns out that Warner Bros. really, really didn’t want Teen Titans Go! to make a joke about how freaking god-awful that blockbuster was.
