‘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.
