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.

The Fortnite Season 6 Hunting Party Challenge continues, and much like Week 2, this one’s all bout the new wolf character that’s stalking everyone else. Here’s how to solve the new loading screen puzzle and find that secret star.

Fortnite Season 6, Week 3 began Thursday morning at 9 a.m., and even though hardly anybody has had the time to blaze through all seven of the new challenges, the Hunting Party loading screen leaked days ago. Whenever a player completes all seven challenges in a given week, it unlocks a unique Hunting Party loading screen. In each, there’s a clue hinting at an in-game location where players can them claim a secret, usually either a Banner or Battle Star.

Get your running shoes on because Timed Trials have returned to Fortnite for this Season 6 Week 3 challenge.

Week 3 of Fortnite: Battle Royale’s Season 6 began at 9 a.m. on Thursday, and Timed Trials are included as a Premium Battle Pass Challenge. The specific locations have changed completely from the Timed Trials from Season 5, so, unfortunately, previous maps won’t be worth anything these days.

The latest in the endless string of Avengers 4 fan theories could plug one of the most glaring MCU plot holes since Captain America: The Winter Soldier debuted in 2014.

In case you forgot, the big twist of Winter Soldier is that Hydra hijacked the entire system, and one of the names that’s deemed a threat to the evil organization is Stephen Strange — before he even becomes a sorcerer. So what gives and how does it connect to Avengers 4?

The bad guys are teaming up in the new trailer for Glass. The third movie in M. Night Shyamalan’s original superhero series will culminate as “The Horde” (James McAvoy) and “Mr. Glass” (Samuel L. Jackson) team up to break out of their confinement inside a mental institution.

On Thursday, Universal released the second trailer for Glass, set for release in theaters in January. Aside from the return of McAvoy, Jackson, and Bruce Willis as retired security guard David Dunn, the film introduces Sarah Paulson as Dr. Ellie Staple, a psychiatrist who treats patients who believe they are superhumans (and they’re kind of right).
