Stan Lee's cameo used spliced audio from Kevin Smith's Mallrats. Stan Lee's declining health at the the time of filming meant he couldn't do multiple takes needed for the production. Kevin Smith confirmed on his YouTube channel that Producer Kevin Feige called Smith and asked for alternate takes on Mallrats for audio needed to use in the cameo. See more »
Towards the end we explore Carol Danvers' subconscious and the Nirvana song "Come as You Are" is played on a record player. That song was released on the album Nevermind in September 1991, and as a single in March 1992. The film takes place in 1995 and Danvers left Earth in 1989. How that song came to be in her subconscious is unclear. See more »

So I was hoping this would be a great movie and I could write a review telling misogynists to shut up because it's fantastic to have a strong female superhero as a leading character. Alas, in that regard Wonder Woman did a lot better as a movie as a whole.
The acting is not that great between Brie Larson's poor performance and the prosthetic/GCI on Samuel L. Jackson that makes him look younger but also gives him an expressionless wooden appearance. There are very obvious plot holes (like, wait, how did they know to do that?) and the pacing is very uneven; there are a few parts during which I didn't feel engaged at all.
On the plus side it does fairly well as an origin story, and there is that Marvel level of polish in special effects and editing. But all in all, it might be a necessary introduction to Captain Marvel for Avengers End Game, but it is probably the weakest MCU movie to date.
