Captain Marvel Cast Has A Problem With Goose The Cat
"I am not a cat person."
Captain Marvel is still a couple weeks away from flying into theaters as the first Marvel Cinematic Universe movie of 2019, but we're learning a few things about what it was like to work on the set. More specifically, what it was like to work with Reggie, the cat who plays Goose in the upcoming film.
During a press junket for Captain Marvel, the cast revealed that their lovable, furry castmate wasn't the best to work with for the two human stars of the movie. "No, I am not a cat person," Samuel L. Jackson explained. "But I'm also not a dog person or a fish person either... Reggie is like most animals that people bring to the set that have been trained to do this, that, or the other. He's snack orientated. He shows off. You give him something to eat, you talk softly and nice to him, give him something to eat again. There were actually four cats, but Reggie did the majority of the heavy lifting, most of the time."
While Jackson put aside his animal bias to be a professional on set, the other star of Captain Marvel had severe troubles working with Reggie and the three other cats who played Goose. Jackson explained that Brie Larson had more problems with the cat than he did. "Not personally," Larson explained. "I'm severely allergic. It's not sort of like 'diva,' we couldn't work together."
Luckily, Jackson didn't reveal anything big this time around. Back in January, he let it slip that Captain Marvel can time travel. We'll learn more about that and Goose's role in the film when Captain Marvel hits theaters on March 8, but check out our review, breakdown of the Skrulls, and look at the post-credits scenes.
