It's not about trying to understand everything. Just do your piece."

Captain Marvel is based on Ms. Marvel/Carol Danvers (a pilot who gets superpowers), but her origin incorporates the alien Captain Marvel's Walter Lawson/Mar-Vell and Khn'nr (both Kree/Skrull soldiers who come to Earth and decide to defend it. Furthermore, Khn'nr had his memory tampered with which causes him an identity crisis, which Carol suffers in this movie).

This was the first time Marvel did 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.

In the film, Carol Danvers visits a bar called Pancho's, where she has flashbacks of her previous life on earth as a Test Pilot for the Air Force.

Pancho's Bar was named after Pancho's Happy Bottom Riding Club, was a real bar/ranch/hotel, located near Edwards Air Force Base in the Mojave desert, in the 1940s. It was once the home to many famous test pilots including Chuck Yeager, Robert Anderson, Jack Ridley, Jimmy Doolittle, and Buzz Aldrin. It was owned by Pancho Barnes, a female aviation pioneer. She was an air-race pilot and Hollywood stunt pilot, and even once replaced Amelia Earhart as a record holder for top speed. No doubt, the reference is a double-nod to Pancho Barnes's groundbreaking contributions to women in aviation and to her connection to the Edwards test pilot community.

In the comics Mar-Vell was a male Kree who was caught in an explosion while rescuing Carol Danvers and the explosion passed his powers onto her by imprinting his DNA onto hers. In the movie this is changed slightly by Mar-Vell being a female Kree who built the core that gave Carol her powers when it exploded. This marks the second time in the Marvel Cinematic Universe that the character portrayed in the film is the opposite gender of the original version from the comics. The first was the Ancient One in Doctor Strange (2016).

Allusions to The Matrix (1999). Captain Marvel/ Vers' training under Yon Rogg is reminiscent of Neos training under Morpheus in The Matrix. At one point in the film towards the end as Yon Rogg and Captain Marvel/ Vers fight each other for real Captain Marvel states "My name is Carol". This is reminiscent of Neos line in The Matrix "My name is Neo" and a possible allusion to that film. Both films deal with a protagonist who is extremely powerful and goes on a journey of self discovery.

At the beginning of the flim when Vers is dropped to the Blockbuster, she blasted up the movie poster "True Lies". It's a metaphor to her life since she has actually blasted up the lies of her past and identity through the flim.
