Nick Fury dies in “Captain America: The Winter Soldier,” except for the dying part. The S.H.I.E.L.D. director fakes his own death in the Marvel blockbuster as a way to discover which of his soldiers are loyal to the cause (or something).
In the comics, Fury lost his eye after complications from a Nazi grenade blast and in an explosion during the Gulf War. A third Fury , his secret son in the comics with the same name, had his eye cut out. Polygon has a good breakdown of the many ways in which Fury lost his eye in the comics you can read here.
“If life is unchecked it will cease to exist,” he says. With his gauntlet firmly in hand, Thanos snaps his fingers and half of the population of the galaxy, including half of our beloved Avengers, disintegrate into dust before our very eyes.
A shocking moment came in Captain America: Winter Soldier when Nick Fury is assassinated by Winter Soldier (Sebastian Stan). Later in the movie, it was revealed that Fury never died at all. He faked his death and allowed the world to believe that the director of S.H.I.E.L.D. was dead .
Surprise, he’s actually a Skrull ! As it’s revealed during the final closing credits scene of the movie, the Fury we’ve seen the entire movie is not Fury , but rather Talos, the Skrull who was introduced in Captain Marvel (played by Ben Mendelsohn).
Steve Rogers is the first Avenger in that he was the first superhero in the MCU’s chronological timeline and he eventually becomes a founding member of the Avengers. While technically Thor is older, he didn’t establish himself on Earth in the superhero mold until well after Cap.

Marvel has revealed Carol’s new look, and with a new costume comes a new mission: Kill The Avengers. Captain Marvel has started losing her powers, been publicly outed as half-Kree, and seen the world turn against her as a presumed alien spy. In other words: she has reason to be angry.
When Marvel created their reimagined version of the Avengers called the Ultimates, it was for a 2002 limited series created by Mark Millar and Bryan Hitch. They decided they wanted to base this new version of Nick Fury on Samuel L. Jackson, going so far as to negotiate likeness rights with the actor.
The Russos have a surprising answer. Cinema Blend recently covered this new Russo Brothers extra and quoted what Joe Russo said about whether Thor is really more powerful than Captain Marvel . Many fans were surprised at his answer: Captain Marvel is more powerful when you place things in the proper context.
Simply put, Jackson said Fury never contacted Captain Marvel because the threat against Earth was never big enough to warrant the call . Fury’s mentality was that if the current superheroes on Earth were capable of handling a threat themselves, then Captain Marvel wasn’t needed.
The Russo Brothers recently explained the character’s lack of screen time compared to other heroes, with Joe Russo saying: It was a story about the original six. That was the focus of the film, to conclude a 10-year saga about those characters. And Carol’s a fairly new character.
The original Nick Fury , i.e. the one from the main Marvel Comics universe, Earth 616, is a white man, but in the Ultimate universe continuity, which launched in 2000, he’s a black man who looks just like Samuel L. Jackson.
He was born on the 4th July 1950 That would put him as 44/45 during the events of Captain Marvel as that takes place in 1995. His birthdate and age are deliberately hidden in Captain America: The Winter Soldier according to Film School Rejects but this too is unsourced as to the reasons why.
Nick Fury is no longer the director. Since Captain America:Winter Soldier, SHIELD has been an underground organization. During this time Fury was on his own. He went deep underground so he could go after Hydra and made Phil Coulson director.
