The cutout character that Vers shoots in the Blockbuster store was originally supposed to be The Mask (1994), with Vers mistaking the green face for a Skrull, but the filmmakers couldn't secure the rights. Harry Tasker (Arnold Schwarzenegger) from True Lies (1994) was chosen instead. See more »

As this is the first Marvel Cinematic Universe film released after Stan Lee's death, the Marvel Studios logo features images and clips of Lee's cameos and comes with a message: "THANK YOU STAN". See more »
Brie Larson fit the role beautifully - not too overdone or flashy (like Iron Man), more down-played, a little sassy. Each Avenger has their own personality and she definitely stands out from the others. I loved seeing a female main character kick some butt and can't wait to see more of her.
Side note: I get we all want a Black Widow or Scarlet Witch movie, but why does it matter if CM gets her own first? Either way, we got to see an awesome Marvel lead lady. Plus, there's always room for more movies (and now series spinoffs on Disney+)
Yes, story line was a little slow, but I still was engaged and impressed by her rediscovering herself.
Can't forget all the tie-ins to the other Marvel movies, so that was awesome like always.
