Imagine If, Captain Marvel 1982 Release Date

Imagine if Hollywood had released tent-pole comic-book movies starring their iconic characters around the time of the source material’s release date.

Instead of jumping back to the 90s, this time we would jump back to the 50s.

Dr. Wendy Lawson– Ellen Burstyn
