It will follow Fury’s character after the events of Avengers: Endgame, where he is still coming to terms with the fallout of the movie.

He mentioned that the eyepatch was a, “part of who the strong Nick Fury was” and the absence of it, part of his vulnerability now”

Fury’s fragile mental state is also apparent in his looks, as he is portrayed without his distinctive eyepatch. Jackson continued, 

“He just doesn’t wear the patch. The patch is part of who the strong Nick Fury was. It’s part of his vulnerability now. You can look at it and see he’s not this perfectly indestructible person. He doesn’t feel like that guy.”

The upcoming release of Secret Invasion on Disney+ on June 21, 2023, has the potential to become a highly engaging addition to the MCU similar to Endgame. Only time will tell how everything plays out.
