Another day and seems like another error has been set, thanks to Captain Marvel. The fact that this movie is going to be set in the past gives room for errors and problems to arise. An extreme eye should have been given to the whole of the MCU to avoid any plot holes and continuity errors. But there is always something that gets skipped.
Recently enough, Captain Marvel seemed to have created a Nick Fury plot hole in the MCU. And now, as ScreenRant suggests, there seems to be a continuity problem at hand. Judging from the trailers, it is quite clear that Nick Fury is a low-level agent of SHIELD in the year 1995. He is fed up with his job and is ready to quit until he meets Captain Marvel.
Now, let’s move to Iron Man 2. Nick Fury had a small role in there when he meets Tony Stark and talks about how he knew his father and tries to motivate him into getting a hold of reality and working something out. Right in this scene, Fury mentions that he used to work with Howard Stark. “He said that you were the only person with the means and knowledge to finish what he started.” To this Tony replies with a bitter tone, “You’re talking about a guy whose happiest day was when he shipped me off to boarding school.” Fury insists that this certainly was not the case and that he knew Howard better than Tony ever did.
Where’s the error, you ask? Well, Howard Stark met his untimely demise in 1991, four years prior to the time Nick Fury was a low-level agent. There is certainly no way that Fury had Howard Stark as an acquaintance back then.
But there is a way this could be circumvented. It just has to believe that Nick Fury was lying and only delivering what Tony wanted and needed to hear. He has done such things before like we saw in The Avengers. He lies to the team the Phil Coulson died with those playing cards on his person, believing in heroes. This gave the team the necessary motivation and this is what Nick Fury does. He is there when you need him.
