Captain Marvel is one of the most awaited films this year. The Brie Larson starrer is scheduled to release in a few weeks’ time and the film already has everyone excited about Goose the cat. Goose is a friend of Carol Danvers and supposedly has superpowers. In an interview with D23, Captain Marvel producer Jonathan Schwartz revealed a lot about Goose. According to Schwartz, Goose was modelled after not one, but a contingent of several ‘A-team’ cat actors.
"One of them is the face cat, a pretty cat—that’s Reggie. One of them is the holding cat, who only can be held. One of them is the nuzzling cat who will walk up to your leg and nuzzle it. And one of them is the cat who will paw you,” explained Schwartz. Since the promos for Captain Marvel went live, there’s been a lot of talk about Goose, who turned out to be a hot topic among fans.
Carol Danvers, in the comics, was inseparable from her cat, which was called Chewie – a reference to Chewbacca from Star Wars. However, in the film, he’s renamed to Goose, possibly as a tribute to Top Gun, where Maverick’s (Tom Cruise) best friend was Goose (Anthony Edwards). The performance of the four fury animals will be tested when the film releases on March 6. A successful screening might even get them a new job, though we wonder what they get paid.
