Captain Marvel merchandise is beginning to hit shelves, which might just yield some spoilers about the movie. Although not all toys necessarily depict something that'll happen in the film, the latest Goose the Cat toy seemingly confirms Carol's furry companion is more than meets the eye.
Captain Marvel News posted an image of a Goose the Cat toy taken in a store. There are clearly tentacles coming out of the toy's mouth. The account posted this image side-by-side with an image of Chewie -- Goose's comics counterpart, who is actually of an alien race known as the Flerken.
It's noteworthy that the Goose toy has surfaced just days after Avengers: Endgame co-director Joe Russo talked about the inaccuracies of toy leaks, claiming most toys are centered around "old concepts or completely different concepts than what’s in the movie." Still, this is pretty compelling evidence that Goose will possess Flerken abilities. Plus, a toy from Hasbro earlier in the year seemingly confirmed Goose was more than just a cat.
Directed by Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck from a script they wrote with Liz Flahive, Carly Mensch, Meg LeFauve, Nicole Perlman and Geneva Robertson-Dworet, Captain Marvel stars Brie Larson as Carol Danvers, Samuel L.
