Yes, that is a poster for Captain Marvel’s cat, who will no doubt upstage the entire cast of the upcoming film, Captain Marvel. The cat, named Chewie in the comic books, apparently had a name change for the film, as shown by her new collar. Now Goose, presumably after Anthony Edwards’ character in Top Gun, leads a new round of character posters for the March theatrical release . It’s the last of the standalone Marvel movies before April 26, 2019, when it all comes together in Avengers: Endgame.
That cat has her own story, worth checking out in recent (since 2006) back issues of Captain Marvel comics. And she made it onto an early poster for the film so this is really her second big debut for the movie.
The movie is primarily prequel material, as seen in the posters with younger versions of Samuel L. Jackson as Nick Fury and Clark Gregg as Agent Coulson. The showcased new superhero and spacesuit costumes come from the great genre costume designer Sanja Hays, who we discussed previously here at borg from her panel at San Diego Comic-Con last summer.
Other posters show Brie Larson in the starring role, Humans’ Gemma Chan as Minn-Erva, Rogue One and Ready Player One’s Ben Mendelsohn as the Kree-in-disguise Talos, Bulletproof’s Lashana Lynch as Carol Danvers’ aka Captain Marvel’s friend and pilot Maria Rambeau, Djimon Hounsou returning from Guardians of the Galaxy as Korath, Jude Law as a Kree leader, and Annette Bening as Mar-Vell.
Take a look at these ten new posters for Captain Marvel:
Like the posters state, look for Captain Marvel in theaters March 8, 2019.
