#1 Trending Event
🍿 Captain Marvel Hits Theaters

The first solo female superhero movie in the Marvel Cinematic Universe is hitting theaters this week. Brie Larson stars as the lead character, Carol Danvers, and word on the street is that there's going to be an emotional send-off to Stan Lee in the film. 

If the marketing of the film is any indication, Captain Marvel should have some fun 90's references scattered throughout the movie. They recently shared a Magic Eye poster on their Twitter account that had us reminiscing about the good old days. You remember N.E. Thing, right? Check out the Magic Eye throwback poster and watch the trailer here. Shazam!
