Captain Marvel: Official Trailer

The trailer kicks off with Captain Marvel crashing into a Blockbuster video store, so you know this is taking place in the 90’s. It’s basically a mini prequel to catch us up with Carol Danvers before she’s called upon to save the world from Thanos, as they showed at the end of Infinity War. Captain Marvel is set to release on Women’s International Day March 8th.

 We’re Getting a Sony PlayStation Classic!

Sony PlayStation is taking a page from Nintendo by releasing a mini version of the original PlayStation console.

Marvel Is Developing Mini-Series for Popular Characters!

Dang Marvel studios are doing the most, they just announced they’re developing 2 tv miniseries shows for both Loki and Scarlet Witch. It looks like Tom Hiddleston is reprising his role as Loki and Elizabeth Olsen as Scarlet Witch, but they’re expected to be a 6 to 8-episode limited series. There’s no word on where it’s premiering but I think it’s safe to say we can watch it on Disney’s new streaming service coming next year.
