A new promotional image for the upcoming Captain Marvel film offers us a few new gifts ahead of the film’s premiere next March. For one, we see Brie Larson’s Carol Danvers suited up with the classic helmet design. But more than that, seeing Danvers assembled with her Starforce team also highlights a villain from MCU’s past. Or future, depending on how you look at it.
The image, shared on the Captain Marvel News Twitter account, gives us a look at not just Carol Danvers, but also fellow Kree warriors Captain Atlas, Minn-Erva, Bron-Char, and Korath. Who? Exactly. You remember Korath the Pursuer from Guardians of the Galaxy in 2014. Well, actor Djimon Hounsou is set to reprise his role in the upcoming Captain Marvel film, as you can see in the promotional image below:

Let us know in the comments below. Here’s the official synopsis for the film:

‘Captain Marvel’ Funko Toys Confirm Carol Danvers’ Cat Will Appear
With just about four months away from the release of Captain Marvel, Funko has now revealed its upcoming line of Pop! Vinyl Figures that are tied-in to the highly-anticipated film that features Academy Award-winning actress Brie Larson as Carol Danvers, the titular heroine and perhaps the most powerful character in the entire Marvel Cinematic Universe.
The reveal of this new line of Funko Pop! Vinyl Figures show off some of the characters set to appear in the film, one of which includes Carol Danvers' feline companion Goose the Cat.
The name of our heroine's cat may come as a surprise to fans of the comics because in previous incarnations, Captain Marvel's cat is named Chewie and is actually part of the Flerken species.
You can check out two collectible Funko figures of Goose the Cat in the gallery down below. You can start viewing the images by clicking "Next".
