Carol Danvers becomes one of the universe's most powerful heroes when Earth is caught in the middle of a galactic war between two alien races.
IMDb has Captain Marvel covered with cast interviews and in-depth info about the latest Marvel movie.
When Vers/Captain Marvel is looking around the bar and remembering past experiences there, she notices the arcade cabinet for a Street Fighter video game. Since the release of X-Men vs. Street Fighter (1996) in 1996, one year after the year this movie is set, Capcom has published fighting video games that pit their characters against Marvel superheroes. However, Captain Marvel did not appear in any of them until Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite (2017), released in 2017.
Space invasion, big car chase... truth be told, I was ready to hang it up. 'Till I met you today.
At around 0:34 minutes in the film, Nick Fury shows his ID and says "Official S.H.I.E.L.D. activity". Also around 0:42 minutes he identifies himself as Nicholas Joseph Fury, Agent of S.H.I.E.L.D. But the term S.H.I.E.L.D. was not used untill the events of Iron Man (2008) when Agent Phil Coulson meets Pepper during press conference & says he is from "Strategic Homeland Intervention, Enforcement and Logistics Division". It was only at the end of Iron Man (2008) that Phil says now they are known by S.H.I.E.L.D. Since Captain Marvel is set in 1995, there is no way this acronym could have been used.
Coulson never says that they are now known as SHIELD. When Pepper tries to say the full name, Coulson responds: "just call it SHIELD". Even if one regards that as the birth of acronym, it has been ignored since the start of the MCU. The opening montage of The Incredible Hulk (2008) shows a document, written before 2008, where the organization is identified as "Shield". Marvel One-Shot: Agent Carter (2013) (set in 1946) calls the organization "SHIELD". As does flashbacks (that take place before the events of Iron Man) in Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. (2013).
SPOILER: There is a scene in the closing credits: Captain Marvel meets up with the Avengers, responding to the pager Nick Fury activated in Avengers: Infinity War (2018). This leads into Avengers: Endgame (2019).
