Trivia [edit | edit source]
- The film takes place in 1995.
- Producer Kevin Feige announced that this movie happens before the events of Iron Man (2008), and features the Skrulls as the main villains.
- When portraying the alien Skrull Talos, Ben Mendelsohn uses his native Australian accent, and an American accent when Talos adopts a human disguise.
- To prepare for her role as Captain Marvel, Brie Larson trained for nine months, learning judo, boxing, and wrestling. She also visited Nellis Air Force Base and met with active duty airmen, including Brigadier General Jeannie Leavitt and Thunderbirds pilot Major Stephen Del Bagno.
- Jude Law took counsel from his Sherlock Holmes (2009) co-star Robert Downey Jr., who plays Iron Man in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, on appearing in this movie. "He talked a little bit about how making a Marvel Cinematic Universe movie is fitting this one piece into a bigger picture, and giving yourself over to that. It's not about trying to understand everything. Just do your piece."
- Samuel L. Jackson (Nick Fury) and Clark Gregg (Phil Coulson) will be digitally de-aged in order for their characters to look like their younger selves, since the movie is set in the 1990s. This is the first time Marvel has done de-aging for characters for an entire movie. They previously used this tactic in Ant-Man (2015), Captain America: Civil War (2016), Guardians of the Galaxy: Vol. 2 (2017) and Ant-Man and the Wasp (2018), but only for flashback scenes.
