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.
Larson was, she explained, left totally in the dark when it came to filming one important scene. She didn’t even know what had happened in the story at that point, in fact. So her description of what it was like filming that segment gives fans an insight into what really goes on behind the scenes of Marvel movies. Spoilers ahead!
