I don’t realize if it’s too soon to name a film set within the Nineties a “period piece,” but Captain Marvel’s entrepreneurs are doing their damndest to earn that label with a Comic Sans-tastic throwback internet site that recalls the times of Adobe PageMill and HTML 1.0.
It’s slam complete of extremely-dated capabilities, my favorite being the crummy RealMedia player embed (OK, so it’s “KREE PLAYER 1.0”) showing the reliable trailer at a 14. Four-killing 310×175 pixels. Play the “Kree or Skull?” multimedia recreation and don’t forget time while advertising at the web become a ludicrous novelty, now not the all-ingesting existence pressure an excellent way to spoil all of our jobs and usher in the coming of the machines.
Rainbow typefaces, 3-d text, clip artwork backgrounds, .Gifs which might be animated in name simplest and, sure, a visit counter round out the dial-up motif. The handiest element I didn’t see was that “NeW!” header for all of these updates made 5 months in the past.

So, formally, it’s miles https://www.Marvel.Com/captainmarvel — or AOL key-word KREE. We now go back to “Mr. T Ate My Balls,” already in development.
