Ok, in English this is gonna be weird to explain, but as this link explains, it has to do with the official patent designation. In Portugal, there is the woman "Primeiro-Ministro" (Prime-Minister in Male form), and a woman "Presidente" (President). What is officially registered for the post is "Capitão" (Captain), and as Carol Denvers is a former air force ...

The scene was for real - It was shot before Stan died, although they did make a small change after his passing: From this link The Captain Marvel scene was originally written by directors Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck as just another fun, funny appearance by the comics legend. But after his passing in November, the filmmakers felt compelled to update ...

Unlike all the other Marvel films, I've only seen it once, (which is enough for me) and that was a couple of weeks ago, so apologies if I have misremembered a scene. But to my recollection, she only visibly bleeds blue during the flashback sequences, other than that she bleeds red, it is explained that her memory was wiped when she was brought to the Kree ...

Captain Marvel is set before Infinity War and Ant-man and the Wasp is set at the same time, so it's really not that important to watch them. Although, I'd say you have to watch mid-credit scenes of these movies because they play as teasers for Endgame. You may skip Captain Marvel though if you have background information about that character. However, you ...

In Captain Marvel, Kree have assigned C-53 to planet Earth. That's what they call it. To them, Earth is just another planet in the universe. It seems to be a random number assigned to Earth. There is nothing special came up with this number yet. Neither from production team nor in a movie. From Refinery29, As the two fight off some stray Skrulls (led by ...

He did introduce himself, actually. Not by saying his name, but by showing his identification​. Hence Vers' line: We don't carry our identification on little cards. The "little card" contained various info but most importantly here, his name, which is how Vers was able to name him when she said: Congratulations agent Fury, you finally asked a relevant ...

Carol had no problem understanding the guard. And the guard had no problem understanding her. The issue that Carol thought she had, was caused by pure confusion on the guards side, as the guard just witnessed some pretty freaky stuff and was still shocked by it. The guard simply didn't respond in a timely manner (actually not really at all), which made ...

He is lying (kinda). Vers has had a device implanted on her neck to restrain her powers. The Kree told her it helped her focus them, but it was a lie. The powers weren't given, and can't be taken away, but they can be subdued. In fact, when she is being subjugated by the AI for the last time, she burns the device off and claims I've been fighting with ...

Short Answer: Translating between languages is difficult, including whether to modify the gender of words that are translated. Long Answer In the English language, the original language of the movie Captain Marvel, many titles of jobs and ranks have a single non gendered form, even though those jobs and ranks may have been originally used only by males. ...

At the start of The Avengers, the place where the experimentation is ongoing on the Tesseract under the guidance of Erik Selvig, is Project Pegasus. This is the name of the project that was being led by Mar-Vell on Earth in the 90s. SHIELD never lost the item, they handed it off to Project Pegasus for research. It's possible that Mar-Vell recognised it ...

Somewhere in the movie its said that Skrulls only have very recent memories of the human they copied. This, Vers tells Nick which in turn helps him to identify his boss as Skrull. All the questions she asked were about his past (and not the recent one). If I'd ask you something about quantum physics, you wouldn't have an answer right there (at least I ...

Even though you have gained power from something, it doesn't always mean that you will lose it once it is destroyed. Captain Marvel acquired her powers from a warp drive (powered by Tessaract) which was destroyed, and she still had her powers. There are many examples of this where there is no need of source lying around to make their powers work. For ...

The damage done to the Earth in Captain Marvel is literally nothing compared to destruction due to the fight between Thor and the Destroyer. Besides this, Captain Marvel takes places years before Thor and only a few people know about her. The damage done to the Earth during Thor was witnessed by many people and was the most recent one. So, he is just ...

One-liner: Military ranks in the Portuguese Language (applies to almost all countries, including Portugal and Brazil) do not have a female lexical gender. Even if the holder of the rank is female, the rank is referred to using the male lexical gender. In Brazil the movie was called "Capitã Marvel" (incorrect in the formal language) because the Mouse execs ...

Don't forget the next part of the conversation: THOR: My people want nothing but peace with your planet. NICK FURY: But you're not the only people out there, are you? And, you're not the only threat. The world's filling up with people who can't be matched, they can't be controlled. I've put in bold the part that's relevant - This can be argued ...

The movie's title comes from the character's (current) name, Captain Marvel. In the comics, Mar-Vell is the original Captain Marvel. Moved by Mar-Vell’s actions, Carol took the Captain Marvel codename as a tribute and she adopted a brand-new costume as well.

You can watch the movie safely, but I suggest you go to the bathroom and/or take a snack when it comes to the credits, which, without going into details, spoil a major (but known) event of Infinity War, and a lesser known (but more of a spoiler) event. Hover at your own risk; the thing is that Infinity War... And Captain Marvel's mid-credits scene... That'...

As of close of Endgame, no-one (even herself) has referred to her as "Captain Marvel". In Captain Marvel, she is referred to as "Vers", "Carol" and "Carol Danvers". In Endgame she's barely referenced and then only as "Carol". The trailer for "Spider-Man: Far From Home" does have Peter Parker calling her "Captain Marvel" but it's not yet known whether this ...

I suspect this is going to be deemed as off-topic. However, it's Ronan the Accuser, and yes, he's the big bad from Guardians of the Galaxy.

Yes, Goose was the pet of Mar-Vell. After the death of her owner, Goose went along with Carol and Nick Fury into their mission to find Mar-Vell's laboratory. You might remember the scene in the movie where they run into Goose in the hallways and Nick starts petting her. And then when they escape the base, Goose is there with them in the plane. After that,...

I would like to explain these two mid-credits scenes in addition to AJ's answer. Ant-Man and the Wasp Captain Marvel That's all you need to know before watching Avengers: Endgame (not counting Infinity War of course).

It's not diegetic, it's just not said out loud. It is an origin movie after all. As for the components, it is shown that she was Captain Carol Denvers in the movie. Her mentor was named Mar-vell (or Marvel, still not sure on that), and she aims to continue her mission. She proudly wears her jacket at the end of the movie. From those bits, we can safely ...

What exactly is a Flerken? Flerken is an alien creature that looks like a household cat on Earth. From Marvel, Flerkens are living gateways to pocket dimensions which are located inside of them. They can keep things like eggs and fanged tentacles inside their bodies, where the latter can be used as an offensive weapon. How does it swallow things much ...

There are two different types of Kree: "Pink" and the pure-bred blues. This quote is very useful: True Kree resemble humans almost exactly, with the exception of blue skin. Kree have a higher strength level than that of a human, and require more nitrogen to breathe comfortably[volume & issue needed]. Kree bodies are adapted to environmental ...

Here's where we see Carol bleed: Opening flashback--blue blood all over her face and hands. This is clearly a tampered memory since it includes a Skrull in place of Yon-Rogg. Sparring with Yon-Rogg. She bleeds from her nose after he punches her in the face. Blood is blue. Escaping from the Skrull ship. She bleeds from the corner of her lip. Blood is blue. ...

Captain Marvel merely gave Nick the idea that Earth needs protectors from aliens and other beings with superhuman powers. Captain Marvel wasn't even on Earth until after the events of Infinity War had occured. This means that Nick could not even have asked her to join the Avenger Initiative. Also Captain America came to be known to the world before the ...

He was acting like a cat. Goose didn't like the way Nick was treating him and thus scratched him. (Goose is a Flerken, but has the body of a cat) The man-cat love story goes smoothly - that is until the mission is over, when Fury, Maria Rambeau, Carol and Goose are all headed home. Apparently, Goose doesn't appreciate the way Fury is handling him at one ...

This Tesseract in Captain Marvel was stable and wasn't overreacting. However, it was overloaded in The First Avenger, that's why it burned a hole through the metal aircraft. When Red Skull and Captain America fight in the plane, they broke the hydra-built machine holding tesseract. It was already reacting in that machine and breaking it caused it to ...
