Warning: Spoilers for Captain Marvel follow…
Ever since she was spotted in the first trailer for Captain Marvel, there’s been a lot of speculation that there’ll be more to Carol Danvers’ pet cat Goose than meets the eye.
This speculation intensified when Hasbro unveiled a Nick Fury action figure which includes a Goose in restraints, and now we have another toy leak which appears to reveal that, as with Carol’s cat Chewie in the comic books, Goose is actually a Flerken – a dangerous alien species which resemble Earth cats, but actually have mouths full of ravenous tendrils.
