Remade Trailer of the Day:

Speaking of Marvel trailers, some fans dressed up and reenacted parts of the Captain Marvel trailer. It’s not quite a sweded trailer but it’s more than just a cosplay showcase. Either way, it’s an awesome display of the fandom around the hit new installment of the MCU:


Cosplay of the Day:
