In the lineup of Marvel heroes, villains, and other colorful characters, perhaps none played such a uniquely influential role in the comic book’s cinematic universe than Goose the Cat. While the film’s story chronicles Carol Danvers’ (Brie Larson) journey from fighter pilot to one of the most powerful heroes in the universe, offers a glimpse into the early days of Samuel L. Jackson’s iconic (or eye-conic) role as S.H.I.E.L.D.’s expert team-builder Nick Fury, and introduces audiences to the shape-shifting Skrulls, we all know Goose is the most marvelous (and mysterious) player in the movie.
