Marvel Studios’ highly anticipated Captain Marvel film is only a few months away which mean we an expect a bevvy of toy tie-in reveals that may shed more plot details. Sure enough, Funko has unveiled their first wave of Captain Marvel merch.
Much like Infinity War and Black Panther, it’s safe to assume there’ll be more Captain Marvel figures, such as the Starforce team, to come after the film is released based on iconic moments from the movie. I’m willing to bet there’ll be an old lady Funko figure, extra points if it’s of her being punched by Carol Danvers.
Of note, it appears that Carol is referred to as “Vers” when she is in the green Kree suit. What signifigance this has or how it relates to the comics I’m unaware, so let the speculation commenence!
UPDATE: As pointed out online, in keeping with Kree naming tradition of hyphenated names, Vers may in fact be referring to the second syllable of Carol’s lat name “Danvers” hence Dan-Vers.
As dedicated members of Carol Corps know, Carol owned a cat named Chewie that turned out to be an alien (long story) and noticed a cat they assumed to be Chewie appear on the poster. Looks like filmmakers decided to change the name from Chewie to Goose in keeping with the pilot theme and the MCU’s penchant for pop culture references. Peter Quill approved!
