Disney released a bunch of new character posters for Captain Marvel. One of them is a cat named Goose. Guess which one is the most popular. Image: Marvel Studios Yes, obviously the cat. Goose belongs to Carol Danvers, the human alter-ego of Captain Marvel. Even before this poster surfaced, there was reason to believe that Goose wouldn't turn out to be what he seemed. Now it's pretty much confirmed. In the comics, Danvers' cat Chewie (who is also an orange tabby) is actually a Flerken. This race of alien beings resembles the house cats of Earth, except their mouths are filled with extendable tentacles. Further, the Flerken oral cavity is in fact a pocket dimension that can contain entire universes. SEE ALSO: 'Captain Marvel' just dropped an electrifying new trailer Goose may or may not turn out to be a Flerken too, but the fact that he gets a whole character poster to himself suggests he's got a key role to play in the movie. Disney released some other posters as well, highlighting the humans (and humans playing aliens) of Captain Marvel. But they're not nearly as exciting. Brie Larson's is the best, because... hey, this movie looks kickass and she's going to rock. Jude Law's, on the other hand, is the worst. Like... is that actually Jude? It doesn't even look a little bit like him. ### Image: Marvel Studios ### Image: Marvel Studios Captain Marvel hits theaters on March 8, 2019. ## WATCH: Everything you need recapped about the Marvel Cinematic Universe before 'Avengers: Infinity War'
