Captain Marvel is getting a new board game based around the hiding in plain sight Skrulls, and the contents of that game have revealed a few new details from the movie.
The game comes from USAopoly and is titled Captain Marvel: Secret Skrulls, a card game built around the BANG! series mechanics (via Captain Marvel News). The game has players trying to figure out who they can trust amongst the other players and who is a Skrull defector, but the images also reveal a few new details. For instance, we get to see what the film’s Skrull rifles look like, and we also get yet another confirmation that Yon-Rogg is in the film (most likely played by Jude Law).
The biggest thing though is that a card right in the middle shows the jet that Captain Marvel and Nick Fury are flying in the trailers, which appeared to be an early prototype of the current Quinjets. That’s all but confirmed since the official name of the jet on the card is the Quadjet. Typically a Quinjet has five engines, so we imagine we’ll see a reference to this one having state of the art tech and four engines somewhere in the film. Who knows, maybe we’ll see the precursor to the Helicarrier too.
