Spoilers

  • It is rumored that the way in which Carol gains her powers, and becomes Captain Marvel, will be drastically changed for the movie, and instead of getting her powers from the Kree aliens, her powers will be more Infinity Gem powered, similar to the Marvel Cinematic Universe versions of The Vision, Scarlet Witch, and most likely, Doctor Strange.
  • This features the cinematic debut of the Marvel alien race the Skrulls. In the comic books, the Skrull made their debuts in a Fantastic Four adventure.
  • This film is based on the "Skrull/Kree War" storyline.
  • This film will feature the live-action appearance of the Skrulls, the enemies of the Kree race (last seen in Guardians of the Galaxy (2014)). The Skrulls are also owned by 20th Century Fox, as they are rivals of the Fantastic Four heroes; however, Fox does have the rights to Super-Skrull, a Fantastic Four villain who could wield all their powers, and had homaged him in Fantastic 4: Rise of the Silver Surfer (2007).
  • In the end credit scene in Infinity War, Nick Fury sends a message on what looked like a pager. After Nick Fury vanishes in a cloud of dust the camera pans onto the pager on the floor which read, "sending". After a few seconds the message seems to have went through and Captain Marvel's symbol shows up on the pager. This is a big hint at what could possibly happen in Avengers 4.
  • First movie appearance of Agent Coulson in the Marvel Cinematic Universe since he was stabbed and, apparently, killed by Loki, in The Avengers (2012). He was later revealed to have survived, as explained in Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. (2013).
  • Samuel L. Jackson described Nick Fury at this point in time as a desk jockey with two good eyes, who has not yet become cynical towards bureaucracy.
