Brie Larson had an interesting time after she joined the Marvel Cinematic Universe as Captain Marvel. The story and the franchise is, after all, a fairly complicated one. It involves space, technology so complex it might as well be magic, and (spoiler alert) time travel. In addition, Larson’s solo movie Captain Marvel was a prequel rather than a sequel.
So it’s no wonder she was confused. And just prior to the movie coming out, Larson made an appearance on The Tonight Show in which she chatted with Jimmy Fallon about her role in the superhero franchise. It turns out that playing an iconic character may come with its downsides, as well as its obvious perks.
