Captain Marvel: Nick Fury's tape trick to escape Project Pegasus base came from Ant Man

Captain Marvel's Nick Fury's trick is similar to that of Scott Lang's version of the trick. In the 2015 film Ant-Man, he breaks into Hank Pym's vault by getting past a fingerprint scanner in a similar fashion.

Captain Marvel is of the biggest hits of the year and fans are now excited for the upcoming Avengers: Endgame. There many great moments which are major takeaways in the Brie Larson starrer. One of the scenes shared between Nick and Carol when they get captured is one of the most liked sequences. If you remember watching Nick Fury's sellotape trick to open the door while they were captured briefly at the Project Pegasus's base, then you are right we have seen the same in the film Ant-Man. 

For the unversed, in the Captain Marvel movie, Danvers and Fury try and escape the base and during the same, he tells Danvers how he was in the army and worked as espionage in the Cold War. He shows off his one of the spy tricks by using a sellotape to pull a fingerprint off a security badge to bypass a biometrics reader. Later, in the next scene, we see how Danvers could have easily broken the door with the help of her photon blast power.

Fury's trick is similar to that of Scott Lang's version of the trick. In the 2015 film Ant-Man, he breaks into Hank Pym's vault by getting past a fingerprint scanner in a similar fashion, but the same was done in a more complex manner than Fury did.

In an interview with The Wrap, Elijah Horland from the Science Channel’s “MythBusters Jr.” revealed whether these tricks work or no. “It definitely wouldn’t be possible,” Horland said. He further added, "Optical scanners use tiny camera sensors to read the fingerprint’s valleys and ridges, while the capacitive scanner reads your fingerprint with thousands of electric sensors by sending multi currents through it."

“The reason that the tape wouldn’t work is because when you take a fingerprint with tape, you are just getting a layer of oil and skin cells,” Horland said. “When you place it on the scanner, the valleys and the ridges of the print wouldn’t be deep enough, and it would be like placing nothing on the scanner… with the capacitive scanner, we encounter the same problem — the ridges and valleys aren’t deep enough.”
