Captain Marvel’s Marvelous Website

Captain Marvel's Marvelous Website

Marvelous… simply marvelous…

So the next big Marvel Movie will be Captain Marvel, coming out sometime next month (I can’t be bothered to look up the exact release date right now). I’m very excited for this movie! And it’s always great when a movie has a fantastic website to help get you hype.

One thing about Captain Marvel is that it takes place in the 1990s. And some very smart people in Marvel marketing decided it would be extremely awesome to create a website that looked like it came from the 1990s. And they were absolutely correct. IT IS GLORIOUS. It’s like someone had consumed all of Geocities and held it in too long, and when the opportunity came they just vomited it ALL out all over the internets. Animated GIFs. Poorly-digitized pictures. Comic Sans. Unnecessarily long scroll. An idiotic “game” you can play. Broken images. A guestbook. A trailer that plays in a tiny little box. Clashing, psychedelic backgrounds and incoherent color schemes. It’s all spot-on, heightened to 1,000%. I larb it.

Just in case you’re reading this at some unspecified point in the future when this website is no longer its current awexome self, I’ve taken taken an image capture of the entire site below. Click to enlarge it. You shan’t regret it!
