The film is set in 1995.
Marvel has launched a retro site in furtherance of “Captain marvel”. The film is set in 1995, so the design of the resource to its fonts, colors and animations match this time.
Promo-site is imbued with nostalgia for the 90 th year with its elements that can be found in almost all resources of the time. Among them: HTML frames, bright fonts, gray buttons, guestbook, and counter. And periodically in different parts of the screen, a female-Skrull where I have to quickly click to make it disappear. Besides, on the website of “Captain marvel” you can watch the trailer in the old player and play about scrollb.
Promotional website would not have worked in 1995
Despite the stylized 90 website wouldn’t work at that time, as it weighs in at 10 megabytes. In 1995, the fastest modem supported speeds of 28 kilobits per second to download “Captain marvel,” it would take an eternity.
In addition, the design of the site is built using CSS, which appeared in 1996. Finally, in the guest book there is a reference to the meme “the dancing baby”, which exists only since 1996.
Thus, according to the designers of the website, the code resource was written in Microsoft FrontPage and posted it through the service Angelfire.
In Russia premiere of “Captain marvel” will take place on 7 March 2019.
