When the international poster for Captain Marvel was released, popular Australian artist Bosslogic saw an opportunity to pay tribute to two other stars in the already packed ensemble cast of the upcoming Marvel Studios film: Agent Phil Coulson, portrayed by Clark Gregg, and Carol Danvers' cat, Goose.
While the Coulson poster is pretty great in its own right, the edit replacing the characters with Goose is hilarious considering early reviews of the film report the feline steals the show. Captioned with the iconic "Oh Captain, my Captain" quote, the entire cast of cats shows a wide range of emotions. Bosslogic 's Cat Fury and Cat-Rogg look serious, while the members of Felineforce seem attentive and ready to battle the dastardly Catskrulls plotting in the background. Meanwhile, Captain Meow-vel stands stoically with glowing eyes, ready to save the world.
Set in 1995, Captain Marvel will depict an early incarnation of S.H.I.E.L.D., including a younger Nick Fury and a rookie Agent Coulson working as his right-hand man. Since his appearance in 2008's Iron Man, Gregg reprised his role as Coulson in Iron Man 2, Thor and The Avengers. Since then, Coulson has literally lived on in ABC's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., investigating all manner of strange cases with a team of special agents.
Seeing Gregg's face superimposed upon members of the Starforce or the Skrull leader Talos is pretty amusing, even if it doesn't appear to fit at times. With Coulson's Yon-Rogg smiling while Coulson's Nick Fury gives off Agent Smith from The Matrix vibes, Bosslogic's interpretation of Coulson as Captain Marvel looks ready to fight alongside Coulson's hero Captain America, a touch the artist honors with a blue energy shield bearing the S.H.I.E.L.D. logo.
Directed by Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck from a script they wrote with Liz Flahive, Carly Mensch, Meg LeFauve, Nicole Perlman, and Geneva Robertson-Dworet, Captain Marvel stars Brie Larson as Carol Danvers, Samuel L. Jackson as Nick Fury, Jude Law as Mar-Vell, Clark Gregg as Phil Coulson, Lee Pace as Ronan the Accuser, Djimon Hounsou as Korath the Pursuer, Gemma Chan as Minn-Erva, Ben Mendelsohn as Talos, and Lashana Lynch as Maria Rambeau. The film arrives on March 8, 2019.
