I don’t realize if it’s too soon to name a film set within the Nineties a “period piece.” Still, Captain Marvel’s entrepreneurs are doing their damnedest to earn that label with a Comic Sans-tactic 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 on the web becomes 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 might be animated in name simplest, and, sure, a visit counter rounds out the dial-up motif. The handiest element I didn’t see was the “NeW!” header for all these updates made 5 months ago.
The website is an homage to or a ripoff of Warner Bros. Nonetheless-extant Space Jam official page that is old enough to lease a car. You discern whoever sloshed this aspect collectively knew they’d be obligating Marvel.Com to host it for the subsequent quarter-century, so well-performed, my dudes.
By the way, Space Jam is soon getting a sequel courtesy of LeBron James and Ryan Coogler. Captain Marvel is extra impending, freeing in theaters on March 8. Or you may wait for it to show up on Primestar.
Correction: Astoundingly, a submission whose sole motive changed sending humans to an internet site did not include that site’s cope. That becomes high-quality, powerful, Owen. So, formally, it’s miles: https://www.Marvel.Com/captainmarvel — or AOL keyword KREE. We now go back to “Mr. T Ate My Balls,” already in development.
