We’re pretty sure with this trailer and poster, Marvel just said, “DC, we see your Wonder Woman and raise you a Captain Marvel.”
We have had bits. Glimpses. Reflections in mirrors. But until this morning we have not seen all that is in store for the upcoming Disney release, Mary Poppins Returns.
Timebound shares the story of Kate Pierce-Keller, a pretty average sixteen-year old girl. She’s worried about all of the typical things that a teenage girl spends her time on; boys, clothes, school. There’s really nothing extraordinary about her. Well, until the day she realizes that her grandmother isn’t as off her rocker as Kate had imagined. It seems that a strange little piece of jewelry her grandmother always cherished is far more than just random bling. In fact, at one point that little medallion is the only thing that stops Kate from winking completely out of existence.
And thus begins the wibbliest wobbliest time travel journey and adventure since Doctor Who crossed time lines back and forth in his epic battle against Daleks and Cybermen.
As huge Marvel Universe fans in our house, we’ve been eagerly watching for any information regarding Captain Marvel and what her upcoming movie is going to mean to the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU). This morning, Entertainment Weekly revealed the first official look at Captain Marvel and some facts and info for people who aren’t familiar with the character.
Anna Johnson’s parents lost hope in life. First, her father committed suicide by jumping off a cliff. Then, not long after, her mother also jumped to her death in the exact same location. Everyone in the region knows exactly who they are and what happened. They all believe they know the story too. But Anna doesn’t believe her parents committed suicide. She’s sure that something else is amiss in the case. And this theory is supported when she begins receiving messages, notes and even threats from a mysterious source who is upset that she isn’t content to let the death of her parents just rest.
With the help of a mostly retired investigator, Anna begins looking at clues and pulling together seemingly random bits of information. Was it suicide? Was it murder? What if it was neither?
