We are just about a month away from meeting Marvel’s “Captain Marvel” face to screen as the galactic powerhouse joins the other mighty heroes of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. It was only a month ago that the studio gave us a “Special Look” clip which was presented HERE in case you missed it. I’m excited about this one and I look forward to seeing all sorts of toys and accessories at the upcoming Toy Fair which this outlet is attending for its 9th straight year. I figured this was as good a time as any to showcase a number of the promotional posters that have been released for the film and I’ll start with the Official Theatrical one, the premise and the casting before you get to enjoy them all. Enjoy.
The Premise: Set in the mid-1990s, Captain Marvel follows Carol Danvers, a former U.S. Air Force fighter pilot, as she turns into one of the galaxy’s mightiest heroes and joins Starforce, an elite Kree military team, before returning home with new questions about her past and identity when the Earth is caught in the center of an intergalactic conflict between two alien worlds.

PiercingMetal Thoughts: Aren’t those cool? I think so for sure and hey before I forget to share this with you. This month, Marvel Comics is releasing a whole bunch of one dollar comics from their True Believers line of issues and every single one is dedicated to “Captain Marvel”. I discussed them all in THIS POST so please take a look and make a call to your local comic book shop owner so you don’t miss them. I don’t think we shall be seeing a whole crop of additional posters but if we do I am just adding them to this post since there is only so much time in the day. With Toy Fair only ten days away for me, I am finalizing all of the last appointments and firming up my schedule. Those of you who are interested in the Pop Culture side of the website offerings might want to bookmark THIS TAG. As the posts go “live” you will see them if you click the tag. Right now its only the event listings. Hope that you are enjoying all of this stuff because I love bringing it to your attention and there is so much more to come. See you next time.
