One of the bigger questions going into the soon-to-release Captain Marvel is how the movie will fit into Marvel Cinematic Universe continuity. While the movie is set in the 1990s, it's already been confirmed that, somehow, Brie Larson's Carol Danvers will arrive in the present of the MCU to join in the fight against Thanos in Avengers: Endgame.
There have been many theories as to how Captain Marvel will become involved in the highly-anticipated team-up film, but we thought an answer finally came last month when Nick Fury actor Samuel L. Jackson revealed in an interview that Carol Danvers had the power to travel through time.
However, as it turns out, Captain Marvel's so-called time-travel powers may have been made up by the actor.

In an interview with radio station KROQ, the stars of the film were asked if they ever let slip crucial information about the movie's plot. "You just made stuff up," Brie Larson answered, pointing to co-star Samuel L. Jackson. "I made stuff up," Jackson agreed, "I said she could time-travel one time."
"Yeah, it just jacked everybody up," he continued.
"And we did kind of have to backtrack from that a couple times," Larson continued, before Jackson explained that he made the superhero's time-travel powers up after a long day of work. "We were just blowing smoke. It was actually a mistake, we were tired, end of the day, they had a bunch of people on set... "They bring reporters to set and you're working all day and they want you to stop in the middle of the day and go talk to a table full of people for nor reason. It's like, "really?""
Larson admitted that Jackson's mention of time-travel was confusing. "It was like "oh I didn't have clearance for that info I guess,"" the actress joked.
