(at around 38 mins) As Carol Danvers walks through the Pancho's Bar, she's hit with a swarm of memories in front of her, including one quick shot of her celebrating after winning a round on the Street Fighter II arcade game. The Street Fighter II arcade cabinet wasn't released until 1991, two years after Carol was believed to be dead. By the time Street Fighter II was released, Carol would have already been part of Starforce and therefore unable to play the game in the years before then. In fact, the cabinet shown in Captain Marvel is Street Fighter II': Champion Edition, which wasn't released until 1992.
This is incorrectly regarded as a goof. If you watch closely, you'll see that the memory is actually of her playing a pinball machine, Stern's Flight 2000, which you can see the marquee of around her head. In addition you can see the ghost of the actual machine, and that her stance and hands are correct to be playing the pinball machine, not Street Fighter. The Red carpet premiere on marvel.com shows a promotional still at 1:06:39 of Bree in costume playing Stern's Flight, which you can compare the marquee and machine ghost in the film to. See more »
But I fell in love with Captain Marvel and Brie through this movie.Compared with other superheroes, I especially like her impulsive and mood-oriented personality settings. After all, most superheroes are so perfect and thoughtful. Why not try to do things by nature? The interaction between Carol and Nick Fury is also very cute, and I like this friendly combination. Although the plot is not so attractive, I am looking forward to Captain Marvel's next performance in the Marvel Universe.
