When asked how to get to Louisiana (from Los Angeles), Fury says "due East, hang a right at Memphis". Memphis almost exactly shares the latitude of Los Angeles (~34?/35?) and the longitude of New Orleans (~90?), so his directions are quite accurate.

Nick Fury mentions only his friends/allies call him 'Fury'. The antagonist in Captain America Winter Solider, Alexander Pierce, calls him 'Nick'.

I am pretty sure that you've watched Captain Marvel, maybe in a theater near you or on the small screen, but probably not many of the small details have taken your attention. Most of the previous facts are hidden for some reason, but still, there is plenty of randomly forgetten stuff that makes the movie unique and interesting. The more you know, the more fascinated you'll be about Captain Marvel and will watch it online, download or stream it again and again.
