This time we're talking Captain Marvel, the first Marvel Cinematic Universe movie featuring a female superhero in the lead role.

MCU movies are a pain in the arse for pre-film logos, with that flashy cinematic nobody cares about.

It's a touching memorial for a man who helped create the characters that are the focus of the films people love so much.

I managed to grab the references to Blockbuster (does it count as product placement 2o), The Fresh Prince of Bel Air, a Street Fighter II arcade machine, the original Game Boy (and Mario coin sound effect), Nine Inch Nails, Don't Go Casing Waterfalls TLC, Come as You Are by Nirvana, Radio Shack, pre-Google search king Alta Vista, You Gotta Be by Des'ree, plus a True Lies cutout and plenty more VHS tapes for films like Hook, Last Action Hero, and the rather-fitting The Right Stuff.

In the comics the Accusers take on the role of 'military governors and jurists', which means they basically control the military and uphold its laws.

The focus of Captain Marvel are the Skrulls, alien shapeshifters that have a tendency to go off and try to conquer planets by infiltrating them in secret.
