Last week, the Marvel Cinematic Universe released its latest offering, Captain Marvel, ahead of the highly anticipated Avengers: Endgame.
It’s been applauded by fans for the strong female lead, played by Brie Larson, but there are some questions that have arisen from it.
One question links to the 2015 box office smash Avengers: Age of Ultron and Nick Fury, played by Samuel L Jackson.
In Captain Marvel, Carol Danvers (Larson) tries to figure out whether Fury is a Skrull, so asks for a weird detail about himself.
“If toast is cut diagonally, I can’t eat it”
His answer definitely qualifies, as he tells her: “If toast is cut diagonally, I can’t eat it.”
It seems so minor and like a fun piece of movie trivia – but it seems he forgets it by the time the plot of Age of Ultron happens.
A Reddit user, PowerRangersLOL, re-watched Age of Ultron after seeing Captain Marvel and noticed something odd.
They write: “At about the hour and nine minute mark, Fury appears to cut a sandwich diagonally.”
The user points out that his quote in Captain Marvel relates to toast, and he’s eating a sandwich in Age of Ultron.
But it was enough to convince them that the modern day Fury is a Skrull, meaning the Avengers could be facing danger from the inside.
Other users were divided, with one replying: “Nick Fury is a harder man by Age of Ultron. He was preparing himself by doing the most terrible thing he could imagine.”
Another noted: “In all seriousness, the change in personality and demeanour between 1995 Fury and modern day Fury is quite alarming.
“In Captain Marvel he’s all smiles. He’s charismatic, he jokes around, heck, he even sings.
“I guess becoming Director of S.H.I.E.L.D. really changed him. The stress of the job, the burden of the secrets he has to keep…”
Others speculated that modern day Fury could be a Skrull after one of the four that landed on the beach in Captain Marvel seemed to be unaccounted for.
Furthermore, another said: “Nick Fury dies in Winter Soldier for real. Fury wouldn’t need to visit his fake gravestone at the end, it was Talos visiting it as Fury.”
Either Marvel has the most switched on fans and it’s nothing, or the Avengers need to keep an eye on Fury…
Captain Marvel is out now in cinemas. Avangers: Endgame is released on April 25.
