After over a decade, we are getting our first female led Marvel movie and the Carol Corps are standing at attention waiting for the best way to celebrate the release of Captain Marvel on March 8, a.k.a International Women’s Day. Disney’s very own Hollywood theater, the El Capitan, has announced a fan event and an exclusive Carol Danvers inspired patch just in time to get us even more excited for the highly anticipated film. We have a first look at the patch, too! The gorgeous design features the hero’s iconic motto “Higher, Further, Faster” and is inspired by Carol’s pre-superhero career as an Air Force pilot. It’s modeled after a patch worn on her military uniform. You’ll be able to get the patch if you attend the theater’s opening night celebration on March 7, which will feature ’90s costumes and all kinds of goodies.
El Capitan’s official description of the big night teases.”Be among the first to see Marvel Studios’ Captain Marvel! Live DJ, Fun & Surprises! $35 per person. Each guest will receive a reserved seat, popcorn in a souvenir tub with one refill, a 20 oz. bottled drink and a limited-edition Captain Marvel themed embroidered patch! Plus, come in your best 90’s attire!”
Don’t worry if you’re not able to make that night, as fans will be able to get the patch at any screening at El Capitan as long as supplies last. Plus the ’90s nights will continue on Thursday, March 14 and March 21. And El Capitan has an exhibit area, so attendees will be able to see costumes from the movie. Get your girl gang together and get ready to see Captain Marvel hit one of the most famous screens in Hollywood!
