Captain Marvel's Official Website Is Basically A Geocities Fansite

Carol Danvers has a Geocities webpage and it’s exactly as loud and wonderfully tacky as you think it is.

While Carol Danvers might be the future of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Captain Marvel takes place in the 1990s, which is quickly becoming a period of time we can refer to as the distant past.

If you were into geeky things in the ’90s, you spent more than your fair share of time reading and making horrendously-designed fansites featuring all manner of low-resolution gifs and jarring background music. Rather than going for a modern-looking web presence for Captain Marvel, the studio’s gone straight retro with a site that looks like it was designed around the same time as the infamous Space Jam page.

Higher, further, faster” would make for a damned good modem advertisement.

Captain Marvel hits theatres March 8 around the world.

    The GIFs with baked in blending to the wrong background colour is a nice touch.

    It's amazing. The only thing its missing is a WebRing.

    What's with Kotaku AU constantly (re)posting articles from US io9/Giz/Kotaku a week later all the time? Its like I'm constantly in a state of dejavu and old news.
    Can't these articles be posted across all regions at the same time to avoid 80% of Kotaku AU being stuff posted days ago on their parent US sites?

    Great marketing. They also would have saved a lot of money by getting a 13 year-old to make it instead of a web designer.
