The latest batch of Captain Marvel posters offers fans a closer look at Skrull leader, Talos (Ben Mendelsohn) and Carol Danvers' (Brie Larson) pet, Goose. Directed by Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck, the upcoming Marvel Studios flick will debut MCU's first solo female headlining superhero, who also turns out to be the most powerful one in the franchise. Set in 1995, the events of the movie predates Iron Man and will reunite fans with still two-eyed Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson) and a young Phil Coulson (Clark Gregg) who were both working for S.H.I.E.L.D. at that time.
With Captain Marvel only two months away from hitting theaters, more marketing materials from the film can be expected to roll out, and perhaps even one final trailer and a slew of promo spots. Over the last couple of months, pieces of tie-in merchandise have been popping out including these toys from Hasbro exclusively unveiled by Screen Rant. A special sneak peek during Comic-Con Experience 2018 in Brazil last month was also unveiled although it has yet to be released online. The latest promotional materials, however, shine a light on both Goose and Talos.
The series of Captain Marvel posters comes from Trends International and features four one-sheets, two of which offer variations of Danvers wearing her classic superhero suit while the other two put Talos and Goose at the forefront. Not much can be deciphered from the illustrations as they're just stylized character posters, but it gives fans a closer look at both the Skrull leader and Danvers' pet cat a closer look which fans would undoubtedly appreciate considering that trailers haven't really put a spotlight on them yet.
Upon closer inspection, Talos, particularly, looks a little bit different from what fans have seen in trailers. His head is overall green instead of having a faded gray color at the top. His clothes in the one-sheet just don't appear more worn out than what he was sporting in previously released footage. Some details are also quite inconsistent with his appearance in promotional clips. Another interesting thing to scrutinize is the paraphernalia (or maybe logo) in the background that's reminiscent of the apparatus that shape-shifting race have Danvers strapped on as seen in the trailers.
Goose's poster, on the other hand, boasts a galactic theme - with Captain Marvel's logo at the back in neon lights and a form of the heroine at the front. The trailers have only shown him explicitly once, so fans can appreciate the fact that they can look closer at the fan-favorite Marvel pet through the one-sheet. While it's still unknown what role he's going to play in the film, there are theories floating around that Goose could actually be who causes Fury to loses an eye. This is possible considering the reveal in the comics that Danvers' animal companion is actually the last of a ruthless alien species whose bodies contain interdimensional portals known as the Flerkens.
Fans won't have to wait to learn more about Danvers' origin story with Captain Marvel not long away from now. After that, she'll eventually join the rest of the Avengers in the present time to help in defeating Thanos and restore order and peace in the universe after The Decimation in Avengers: Endgame.
