More Captain Marvel news
Captain Marvel has finally been released on DVD and Blu-Ray and with that comes new information we never even knew when we first saw the film.
The disc version offers commentary from directors Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck. In their commentary, they point out a clue early on in the film that is very telling to how the plot plays out.
Early on in the film, Talos capture Danvers during Starforce’s mission to Torfa. On his ship, he and the other Skrulls used a device to look into Danvers’ memories. The examination reveals that Carol often changes who she believes kills Mar-Vell later on in the film. The Skrull’s head changes form which changes the perceived identity.
“If you look at it there’s just a touch of a humanoid form in that Skrull,” Fleck said in the commentary. “Her memories are starting to get really confused.”
“The ears disappear for just a second,” Boden adds.
In the commentary, the directors also spoke extensively about Goose, the Flerken, or cat-like alien, in the film. They talked about having GOose swallow the Tesseract in the movie.
“Part of the fun of having the Flerken in the movie was finding a way to make it really have a place in the plot,” Boden said. ““Like not just have it be a silly gag but actually have the Flerken become an important member of moving the plot forward, and so we didn’t always know that it was going to end up consuming the Tesseract and holding the Tesseract for us, but when that idea came to the table, it made it more fun.”
They also talked about Goose being played by a male cat in the film, but them previously confirming that the character was female. The main cat behind the character is named Reggie.
“Female cat played by Reggie a male cat,” Boden said. “Apparently trainers don’t really train female cats. I don’t know if it’s a sexist thing all the way in the ranks of animal training. They say the female cats are less trainable.”
