Captain Marvel

Continuity mistake: As Vers is about to punch the person dressed like the Skrull, a woman in a flowery pantsuit is visible in the background, behind him. Next shot and she is walking behind Vers making a rather conspicuous horrified facepalm, and coming from the wrong direction. (00:33:50)

Continuity mistake: Coming out of the train, Vers moves through the crowd. She passes by the same person with a petrol windbreaker, reading a newspaper. She moves past him but he's still in front of her in the next shot. (00:33:40)

Continuity mistake: Vers KOs the Skrull she does the warcry thing at, and then another one on the corridor steps. She is then seen fighting from the perspective of the corridor to her right, but there are no Skrulls in sight against that door, while at least one was already lying down there. There are two when the camera gets back closer, and when she neutralizes the last one who bounces onto his own stun mace, there are again two, and she somehow got between the last one and the others.

Continuity mistake: When Vers 'proves' to Fury she's not a Skrull by photon blast usage, Brie Larson's hand is either under her chin or on the table; it makes no difference for the reverse shots that stay always the same. (00:41:00)

Continuity mistake: Monica is showing Carol some photos from the past. The first one is a Halloween one; you can see in the wide shot how her two hands move together on the corner of the picture, but in the close-up she is holding it on both opposite sides. (01:01:15)

Continuity mistake: When Carol is showing Fury the upgraded communicator, in the close-up Fury is already drying his hand with the towel he grabs only later. (01:48:40)

Continuity mistake: Talos has been hit and Fury asks him if he's okay. He answers "Never...better", hand on his own chest. In the next shot Fury is keeping the hand on his shoulder and Talos has his hand on Fury's arm. (01:38:30)

Continuity mistake: Vers gives the stinkeye to the biker guy who complimented her suit by folding a corner of the Los Angeles map. It's folded differently in the two shots: in the first there's a portion at least twice as wide that comes down with her hand, while in the second it's just the corner, the rest being almost straight. (00:35:35)

Continuity mistake: In the dream sequence at the beginning of the movie, Vers is looking at the bloodstained palm of her hand. It turns into the back of her hand immediately after - which could be fine especially in a dream/flashback scene, but the hand is also differently marked with the blue goo - in the POV shot her middle finger had barely a little spot on the pad, while in the following shot it has blood all over. (00:01:05)

Continuity mistake: When Vers grabs the man with the purple sweater at the station, she lowers her punching arm in the view from behind, but she still has her arm up ready to hit him in the following shot. (00:33:45)

Continuity mistake: When Vers lands in the Blockbuster, the establishing shot of the street shows the cardboard cutout of True Lies facing the outside from the window (Jamie Lee Curtis on the left of Schwarzenegger). When Vers blasts it, it is facing her, so faces the inside of the store. (00:23:10)

Continuity mistake: When Talos appears in Rambeau's house he gets scared after seeing the cat, which then sits down facing Danvers about a foot to the right of Talos' boots. A second later, Danvers reaches down about six feet in front of Talos and picks up the cat which is now facing Talos. There wasn't enough time for the cat to have moved from a sitting position to the new location, let alone turned around. (01:05:00)

Continuity mistake: After Danvers heats the kettle with her hand she sits and speaks with Rambeau, the window shades change in the last shot. Most noticeable is the pulls change positions. (01:00:30)

Continuity mistake: Fury pets Goose when he first meets it; his right hand has a habit of being in inconsistent positions between shots (Goose paws his hand down but it's still up after the cut; Vers calls him by name and in the close-up he has both hands on the furry neck of the critter, only to be shown with the right hand down at the cut). (00:45:48)

Continuity mistake: When Carol asks "Arm wrestle for the tesseract?" Minn-erva in the background is holding her gun at a different angle than the previous shot. Following that, Bron-Char (the big white bearded Kree) assumes battle stance at least 3 times in different shots, at first reacting to Carol flipping on her feet (but looking composed in the next shot), then shown with his fist stretched out, then shown in the process of stretching said fist out. (01:33:33)

Continuity mistake: When Keller has the upper hand on Fury in the fight, he slams him on the ground. When Vers blasts Keller backwards, Fury's head is closer to the 32 on the floor than it was when he was lying down stunned. (00:52:40)

Continuity mistake: When Vers throws the old lady against the roof of the train, the guy with a sleeveless shirt next to the guy making funny faces keeps switching position between shots, between cowering in fear behind his newspaper and having the newspaper hand down against the armrest. (00:31:25)

Continuity mistake: In the flashback of her military training, when she lies flat on her back after falling from the rope, the shadow on Brie Larson's chest changes between shots. (00:15:40)

Continuity mistake: During the flashback about the kart race, the protagonist gets passed by another vehicle, number 5. He gives her the sensible advice to slow down, which makes her accelerate. The kart is shown moving to the left and rear ending number 5, which is curious because she had already been passed by another kart in the meantime (driven by a guy with a green striped shirt) who is nowhere to be seen. He has number 3 and was dead last earlier. (00:14:55)

Continuity mistake: Vers early in the morning the first day shows up at Yon-Rogg's door. Jude Law is rubbing his shoulder in the front view, while he has his fingers stretched behind his ear in the reverse shot. (00:02:15)

Factual error: Carol Danvers' name appears on her dog tags as "Carol Danvers," but US military dog tags list the surname first, then given name. E.g. "Danvers, Carol."

Trivia: In the Blockbuster, Danvers blasts a standee of True Lies. The directors' first choice of standee was actually The Mask (which makes sense, being a green-skinned character who she'd rightly think was a Skrull and attack), but New Line Cinema refused to allow it.
