Secret InvasionStarSamuel L. Jackson and Olivia Colman are excited to be part of a very different kind of Marvel story. Their coming-of-age espionage thriller delves deep into Nick Fury’s story, exploring the Avengers founder’s age and post-event discomfort. His decline was so evident that Fury’s inner circle was rather skeptical that he could do anything to stop the Skrull Rebellion that Kingsley ben-Adir’s Gravik was having a devastating effect on.

“[The bad guys] actually refer to Fury as ‘his own vapor,’ which is jarring,” Jackson told The Hollywood Reporter . “So it’s time to re-evaluate who you are, what you’re doing and how you’re doing it. Over the course of the series, he’s found ways to strengthen himself so he can be up to the task at hand.”

Coleman, who has been lobbying for years to join the MCU, makes her debut as Sonya Falsworth, a top MI6 agent and Fury’s Friends and foes for a long time. Nor did she hide the fact that Fury seemed to have been washed up.

“She did it in a strange way, out of a kind of love. “Please be careful,” Coleman said with a smile. “Her kind of love It’s a funny old thing, but I think she meant it with all her heart. “

In M. Night Shyamalan’s Unbreakable

(1961), Jackson plays the supervillain Elijah Price/Mr. Glass, the character’s mother is played by Charlene Woodard, who actually Up to five years younger than Jackson. However, Woodard mostly plays Elijah’s young mother in flashbacks ranging from 1961 to 1000, Shyamalan is right Her performance as Mrs. Price was so mesmerizing that he aged her

So despite Woodard’s original intentions for the casting, When Woodard and Jackson reprise their respective roles, Twitter erupts over the age difference between Woodard and Jackson. 1974 sequel, glass . After all, throughout Hollywood history, female actors have been treated rather disadvantageously in terms of age because Male actors are often given longer runways to play younger roles.

All that said, once Woodard’s mysterious secret Invasion role was revealed, and Jackson was ready to reignite the discourse.

“Actually, I didn’t played an important role in the casting of Dade]! When they told me who that guy was, I thought, ‘This is going to be a Twitter buzzer at some point,'” Jackson said. …she’s excited to be joining [the Marvel Universe].

Below, in a recent conversation with THR, Jackson and Coleman also explain why they did not Delving into the implicit history of their characters.

Sam, after) worked in the MCU for a few years , you are ahead of the game. Have you been optimistic that like

secret Invasion (*such a chance

Will it come together? Or several times You gave up on this idea?

Samuel L. Jackson as Nick Fury in Marvel Studios' SECRET INVASION Samuel L. Jackson: I don’t think I’ve ever given it that much thought. I mean, people keep saying, “We need a Nick Fury movie . ’ I’d be like, ‘Okay, okay. beautiful. ’ But I just kept showing up where I was, and at some point, you’re like, ‘A two-hour Nick Fury movie just isn’t enough. ’ So over the course of the six-episode series, you can learn enough about him in different scenarios, or a different kind of Nick Fury, because it turns out he can’t or won’t visit his superfriends “To sort things out. It became a very personal and interesting trip with this guy we’ve been waiting to learn more about. When he came back after being away [five years], he was a completely different person. He wasn’t anymore As confident as before, not as fearless as before.

Secret Invasion

is your MCU debut. Was it a relatively easy decision?

Samuel L. Jackson as Nick Fury in Marvel Studios' SECRET INVASION

Olivia Colman:

Yes , I’ve been asking for years if I could join. I’ve called my agent. I love watching all of these movies, especially since having kids. My two oldest kids are teens now Yeah, we’ve seen them together. So actually, I’ll say yes to anything they give me.

Sam, everyone, including Sonia, played by Olivia, keeps telling Fury he’s one step behind. Does he believe them?


at a For a moment, he’s smart enough to understand that people see things that he doesn’t see, or feel things that he doesn’t feel. It’s not just [Sonia]. It’s Talos. It’s Maria. is everyone. Everyone around him tells him, “You’ve lost something. You’re not who you used to be.” Even the bad guys say, “When I met Fury, he was everything.” Admiral Fury called it “his own vapor,” which is jarring. Therefore, it is time to reevaluate or reevaluate who you are, what you do and how you do it. Over the course of the series, he finds ways to strengthen himself so that he is more than capable of the task at hand.

Olivia tells Nick he’s been robbed and Sonia is trying to put Was he rescued by the way? Or did she inspire him in some way?


oh. I have no idea. I think she does it out of love, in a weird way. “Be careful.” (laughs .) Her kind of love is a funny old thing, but I think she meant it. So I like the idea that maybe she’s trying to motivate him, but I don’t think that’s what she meant in the first place.


Yes, she really Thought he’d get killed. (laughs.) She said, “If you let my men get you, you’re in trouble.” So she knew at some point in his life , Those guys will never lay hands on him.


She thinks this very funny.

Sam, because 2000, I don’t like a movie more than “Unbroken” , so I really appreciate Charlayne Woodard’s choice Corner ) Secret Invasion .



Samuel L. Jackson as Nick Fury in Marvel Studios' SECRET INVASION Were you instrumental in getting her on board?

Jackson: Samuel L. Jackson as Nick Fury in Marvel Studios' SECRET INVASION Actually I am not! When they told me who that guy was, I was like, “This is going to hit the Twitter scene at some point.” But it was great because Charlene and I were good friends, and it was a great way for her to get into this Fantastic opportunity in the universe. She’s excited to be joining [the Marvel Universe].

Olivia, Sonia Falsworth and Nick Fury had a relationship history. Are you trying to define this backstory, or is this unnecessary to the way you do things?


Yeah, that’s not how I do things, and I don’t think we need to. There are enough historical suggestions that I’d love to find out as we go.


I mean, There are several ways to go about it. The interesting way Olivia decided to play Sonia changed our dynamic. She can be controversial. She could have been a pretty nasty person for who he was and how incompetent he was at this point, but she chose comfort and ambiguity. “Well, I like you, Fury. Nice to meet you,” all of these things change the dynamic. It allows us to work together in harmony and satisfy the story and our backstories more than any other way. They may just be enemies rather than frenemy.

Sam, Nick still brings enthusiasm when challenged, but in private moments, He kind of broke down and fell over the pieces. Did you ever think you could show that kind of vulnerability in Nick Fury?

Jackson: Samuel L. Jackson as Nick Fury in Marvel Studios' SECRET INVASION I don’t think it’s a never. I just don’t know where that would be or why it would be that way. When Natasha (Scarlett Johansson) died, it had a place because she was the closest person to him. For Fury, the most precious person in the Avengers is her. They have the best relationship. When that [opportunity to show vulnerability] wasn’t part of it, now we’re talking about his feelings about Carol Danvers [Brie Larson]. There’s something interesting about Nick Fury and his relationships with women (rather than men) in the MCU. Even his relationship with Sonia is very different.

Olivia, Sam is clearly a big fan of your work on ) Broadchurch

, so before meeting, what was your choice of Sam Jackson character?


We still quote: “That’s a good burger.” I don’t want to give that impression because I’m so bad at it, but I like Sam’s Things this character does [in Pulp Fiction ]. So I picture this a lot. Coleman turns to Jackson . ) I just think you are sublime in that, as you are in everything you do. But that’s what popped up.


everyone love it all! Love is easy.


It’s easy to love, but I love that he’s going to have a job. He is so serious. He can quote the Bible. He is eating. All this mediocrity happens while they’re doing the job. I just don’t think anyone can do it like you. Anyway, this is my favorite. Then two hours later, I’d be like, “No, I like the other thing.” Two hours after the interview I was doing really well in the interview.


( Laughing .)


I would have thought of a really good answer then.


You always have tomorrow.
