    Brie Larson Had No Idea What She Was Filming In The "Captain Marvel" End Credits Scene

    "They gave me a piece of paper that was a full page of dialogue and action, but all of it was redacted except for my one line."

    If there's one thing we know about Avengers: Endgame, it's that we're not allowed to know anything.

    And it's not just the fans who are being kept in the dark about the whole thing. Several cast members have revealed that they didn't get to see a full script β€” or were given a fake one β€” to avoid the movie being spoiled.

    In fact, the only cast member who read the full script before seeing the movie was Robert Downey, Jr.

    Well, during an appearance on the Tonight Show on Wednesday, Brie Larson β€” aka Captain Marvel β€” revealed just how far the filmmakers went to keep their secrets.

    🚨🚨🚨 WARNING!!! 🚨🚨🚨 There are spoilers for Captain Marvel and Avengers: Infinity War incoming, but if you have problems with spoilers for those movies, I don't know why you're even reading this post, TBH.

    If you stayed to watch the end credits scene of Captain Marvel, you'll know that it shows Carol Danvers appearing at Avengers HQ and asking Captain America, Black Widow, Bruce Banner, and War Machine where Nick Fury is. (Spoiler: He's dust.)

    I don't have a screenshot of it because that movie hasn't come out on DVD yet, so have this one from the Endgame trailer instead.

    Well, according to Brie, she had literally no idea what she was filming when they shot that clip.

    "There was nobody else there β€” I was by myself on a green screen," she said. "I walked in, and they were like, 'Just real quick, we're just going to whip pan over to you and you're gonna go, 'Where's Fury?'"

    According to Brie, at this point she asked the people on set where Fury ~actually~ was, and they just told her that he was "very gone".

    They then told her to look around at the other people in the room, but she wasn't allowed to know who else was there. She was just told there were five of them (which, not to be pedantic, but there were actually four).

    Brie also revealed that she was flown out to film some scenes for Avengers: Endgame β€” which was shot before Captain Marvel β€” without even being told what she was going to do.

    "I flew to Atlanta to start filming, and had no idea what I was doing," she explained. "I arrived and they gave me a piece of paper that was a full page of dialogue and action, but all of it was redacted except for my one line."

    She apparently even asked the hair and make-up team who else was on set, and they told her they didn't know.

    I think we can all agree Brie did a pretty great job, even if she had no idea what was happening at the time.
