The recently unveiled Captain Marvel poster also includes Carol Danvers pet cat named Chewie.
Today, Marvel Studios released a new Captain Marvel poster to accompany the first official trailer for the highly-anticipated film. Of course, Brie Larson was front and center as Carol Danvers, who was shown wearing her iconic superhero costume while standing in a hangar. However, fans have noted that the poster also features a cat on the edge of the poster and many are assuming that this can only be Carol Danvers’ pet Chewie. Of course, in the comics, Chewie is actually a member of a dangerous alien species that resembles cats known as the Flerken.
At one point in the comics, Rocket Racoon attempted to kill Chewie because he knew she was a Flerken. Carol Danvers did not believe his claim until Chewie laid eggs several weeks later.
You can spot Chewie for yourself in the post below!
