Spoilers ahead from Spider-Man: Far From Home.

A brief mention of Kree splinter cells in Spider-Man: Far From Home in a conversation between 'Nick Fury' and 'Maria Hill' is evidence that the generations-long war is still going on in the present day of MCU 2024, according to Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige. When asked about that short, throwaway line by Fandango, Feige interjected "You heard that!" before confirming the Kree-Skrull situation was still ongoing in the MCU.

"Well, that Kree-Skrull war was a big part of the comics and a big part of the Captain Marvel mythology that we wanted to build into. And there'll be lots of questions like, what was Captain Marvel up to in the 20-plus years between when she flew away at the end of Captain Marvel to when she appears in Endgame?" Feige said. "That particular line, though, is one of the handful of Easter eggs sprinkled throughout the film that Maria or Fury say that give an indication that something's different about them."

Feige also points out a word choice Fury uses in the film early on that slyly hints that it's not really Fury.

"Fury does things earlier in the film where he refers to the earth to Peter as 'your world,' instead of 'our world.'" Feige said. "And when you watch it for the first time, it just goes by. But when you watch it a second time, knowing what's coming, it's fun to see that they're there. And Jon Watts is very good at laying in those Easter eggs."
