Captain Marvel is getting ready for her close-up. On the heels of last night’s breathtaking new trailer, and with just over three months until the superhero film’s March 8 release, anticipation is building for the next installment in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Starring Brie Larson as Carol Danvers, the ace pilot infused with alien DNA to become the high-octane title character, Captain Marvel represents a key addition to the MCU, introducing a hero teased at the end of Avengers: Infinity War who will have a major role in the upcoming Avengers 4.
Over the past several days, we’ve seen leaks of some of the upcoming Captain Marvel toys and merchandise, with fans scouring blurry images on sketchy sites for clues to the film. Well, forget those low-res, unofficial photos: Yahoo Entertainment has the official first look at the full gamut of Captain Marvel tie-in products, from action figures to watches, T-shirts to a Schwinn bicycle, which will begin rolling out in January. Scroll down for the goods, beginning with the toys, which offer some tantalizing tidbits about the film’s plot.
Hasbro has two different Captain Marvel lines in the works: an 11.5-inch doll that comes with Danvers’s beloved cat, Goose (who is called “Chewie” in the comics in a nod to Star Wars, but whose name has been changed for the film); and a deluxe 6-inch “Marvel Legends” figure with changeable hands and heads. The Legends series also includes — spoiler alert! — Nick Fury with Goose in handcuffs (suggesting the feline might not be as sweet as it seems, which is a key storyline in the comics), Starforce Commander, and the villainous Talos.
Captain Marvel has her own potent gauntlet, as evidenced by Hasbro’s Photo Power FX Glove, which will feature light and sound effects based on the film.
Meanwhile, the first Lego set based on Captain Marvel is “The Skrull Attack.” The package sets the scene thusly:
Fly with Captain Marvel and Nick Fury to rescue Goose the cat from Talos the Skrull! Zoom over the desert with Fury in his awesome Quinjet. Watch out for the Talos’s stud shooter. Fire 4 missiles at once with each of the jet’s flick-missile shooters and attack with Captain Marvel’s power energy. Then grab Goose, place her in the back of the jet and fly away!
Funko, the purveyors of the popular Pop! vinyl figures, have an adorable collection pegged to Captain Marvel, including major characters like Carol Danvers (in both her Captain Marvel and alien “Vers” forms), the young, two-eyed Nick Fury, pilot pal Maria Rambeau and Talos the Skrull. The main line of Pop! figures will be available at most stores for $9.99 each, although some variants will be exclusive to certain retailers.
In addition to the toys, there will be all sorts of apparel, accessories, books, jewelry and even a bike. Where available, prices are shown.
VALENTYNA ROMANENKO - MONDAY, MAY 16, 2022, 12:21 The Security Service of Ukraine has intercepted telephone conversations between the occupying troops, which show that the only thing they dream of is to survive, retire from the army and never return to Ukraine.
The next seven days could be the most consequential stretch of the primary season -- particularly for Republicans, who have a series of Senate races coming up where President Donald Trump's endorsements are prompting worries about the types of candidates the party will put forward this year. On Tuesday, voters in Pennsylvania will sort through a wild Senate GOP race. Trump's choice of Dr. Mehmet Oz for Senate has opened an unlikely lane for Kathy Barnette, a Black veteran with an inspiring personal history but a long history of controversial statements and actions -- including the revelation Monday that she marched with protestors toward the Capitol last Jan. 6.

One military analyst had a brutally frank message for viewers of Russian state television: The war in Ukraine will get much worse for Russia, which is facing a mass mobilisation supported by the United States while Russia is almost totally isolated. Since President Vladimir Putin ordered the Feb. 24 invasion of Ukraine, Russia state media - and especially state television - have supported the Kremlin's position. That appeared to have changed on Monday night when one well-known military analyst gave a blunt assessment to Russia's main state television channel of what Putin casts as the "special military operation".
