Why Does Nick Fury Have An Eyepatch? Captain Marvel Reveals What Happened

The Marvel Cinematic Universe is full of mysteries, from the origins of each Infinity Stone to just what the hell the point of that Adam Warlock reveal at the end of Guardians 2 was. With the release of Captain Marvel today, we've finally gotten an answer to one of the MCU's longest running and most mysterious of enigmas: the source of Nick Fury's eyepatch.

Set in the 1990s, Captain Marvel actually reveals a lot about Nick Fury's origins and the start of his Avengers initiative. The movie features a de-aged Samuel L. Jackson co-starring alongside Brie Larson's Carol Danvers/Captain Marvel--not to mention a de-aged Clark Gregg as the beloved Agent Coulson--during Fury and Coulson's early days in SHIELD. Besides the uncanny digital effects on these actors' faces, the most notable thing about Fury's appearance in Captain Marvel is that he's lacking that signature, badass, half-pirate-half-super-spy eyepatch. And there's a good reason for that, as Captain Marvel finally reveals the origin of his mysterious eye injury.

New Warframe PC Update Changes How Melee Combat Works

about X hours ago from

Digital Extremes has announced a new update that changes how melee combat works in the PC version of Warframe. This update is only the first part of a multi-phase process for transforming melee strikes and how they operate in Warframe.

This first phase of changes mostly addresses how combat in Warframe was previously split between firearm and melee portions. The update allows you to quickly transition between shooting and slicing, which is designed to create a more flow-like state to the game's combat. "When interrupting a melee combo with gunfire, dodging, bullet jumping, or any parkour, your next melee attack will resume the combo where it left off (within a window)," Digital Extremes live ops & community director Rebb Ford wrote in a forum post. "This simply means taking brief and tactical actions between combo executions is now a valid strategy."

Everything Captain Marvel Reveals About Nick Fury And The Avengers

The clues are everywhere.

Not only did Captain Marvel provide a retro-origin story for Carol Danvers herself--it also took a deep dive into the history of both Nick Fury and the Avengers Initiative. Sure, there are still plenty of questions left unanswered about the untold stories surrounding the MCU's shadowy past, but at the very least we can start putting some of the pieces together and getting some answers--hell, we've even got some answers to questions we wouldn't have thought to ask in the first place.

Do you know what Nick Fury's taste in music is like? How about his middle name? Don't worry, because you're about to. (Beware, there are spoilers ahead.)

Sure, it may seem inconsequential written out like that, but we're heading straight for Avengers: Endgame in a matter of weeks, so every little bit counts, no matter how small--and make no mistake, some of it is very, very small.

Of course details about Fury and the idea for the Avengers aren't the only things to come out of Captain Marvel--go check out what those major Skrull changes could mean, where the Tesseract has been, what's going on with Goose the cat, and what actually happened in the post-credits scenes. Then, once you've brushed up on all your facts and figures, start working on polishing up your Endgame theories.

Rainbow Six-Style FPS Ready Or Not Gets Extended Gameplay Trailer

about X hours ago from

After months of silence, developer Void Interactive has released a lengthy gameplay trailer for its upcoming Rainbow Six-like shooter, Ready or Not. The video, which you can watch above, provides our first extended look at the gameplay, which is strongly reminiscent of the SWAT series.

Ready or Not is billed as a "realistic tactical shooter" that's "set against the backdrop of political and economic instability in the United States." The game casts players in the role of Judge, a SWAT solider "tasked with defusing tense, hostile situations in a morally bankrupt city."

Void Interactive had previously confirmed that Ready or Not will feature both competitive and cooperative modes, as well as a single-player mode. In the latter, the developer says players will be able to command their AI teammates using either an on-screen interface or with voice commands through the game's "finely tuned speech recognition system."

Captain Marvel spoilers below!

Captain Marvel is a fun adventure movie starring Carol Danvers (Brie Larson) as the titular hero as she romps around 1990s Earth on a mission to discover her past against the backdrop of the Kree-Skrull war. It's Marvel's first big screen adventure starring a female superhero front and center, and it's a solid movie in its own right, even if it feels weird to be watching it with little more than a month to go until the MCU as we know it comes to an end in Avengers: Endgame.

But! Captain Marvel isn't a standalone work. Despite being a prequel set years before most of the other MCU movies, it ties in with the rest of the series in countless ways. Case in point: the Tesseract, which actually plays a major role in Captain Marvel.

There are Captain Marvel spoilers past this point, so tread lightly if you haven't watched the latest MCU movie yet!

The Tesseract went on quite a journey in the MCU to get from the original Captain America movie all the way to Thanos's gauntlet in Avengers: Infinity War. Along the way, it turns out, it played a big role in the events of the 1990s, including Air Force pilot Carol Danvers gaining her powers and becoming Captain Marvel. For a full breakdown of how the Infinity War went from Red Skull's grip to Thanos's glove, read on!

20 Old Cartoons That Only Existed To Sell Toys


The golden age of Saturday morning cartoons is an era that will always live on in our memories. After all, who didn't sit down with a bowl of cereal to follow the newest adventures of GI Joe, Transformers, or any number of other series to kick off their weekend as kids?

Here's something you might not have realized, though. As it turns out, way too many of those amazing cartoons were created as nothing more than marketing tools for toys. Some of the shows made perfect sense, as action-based toy lines left plenty of room for stories to be told. Others, however, had to reach pretty far to work a storyline into what was otherwise a pretty basic and story-free line of toys.

Take a look at our favorite toy-based cartoons below, then sound off with the ones you loved in the comments. And when you're done, make sure to check out our look at cartoons based movies. You might be surprised at some of the very adult movies that got a kid-friendly adaptation.
