The movie will be set in the ’90s

Over the weekend, Wonder Woman surpassed Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 to become the highest grossing movie of the summer. That means you should get ready to see a cavalry of female-led superhero movies invading theaters in the years to come. First on that list is Marvel Studios’ Captain Marvel, starring Brie Larson as the Air Force pilot Carol Danvers who gains special powers after coming into contact with an alien force. Until now, not much was known about the project except that it’s being directed by Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck, and that it’s coming out on March 8, 2019. 

That changed over the weekend, as Marvel used its panel at San Diego Comic-Con as a Captain Marvel info dump, including your first look at concept art of Larson in character.

The studio also revealed that Captain Marvel will take place before the events of all the current Marvel movies, as it’s set in the ‘90s, which technically makes it a period piece. That will allow Marvel to capitalize on the current ‘90s craze—we have high hopes for the soundtrack—and to establish Danvers as a powerful force outside of the current crop of Avengers. After all, Marvel head Kevin Feige has said that Captain Marvel will be the most powerful superhero they’ve ever put on screen.

While Larson didn’t make the trip to San Diego for the announcement, she felt it's impact on her Twitter feed immediately.

The company announced its sustainability plan, and it's pretty impressive

Yesterday, Zara, one of the largest global fashion retailers, announced its sustainability plan for the next five years, which includes its goal to make its collections from 100 percent sustainable materials before the year 2025. Given just how many collections and pieces Zara puts out each year, this goal is pretty ambitious.

Is this keeping you up at night?

In celebration of SpongeBob's solar return (it's the 20th anniversary of SpongeBob SquarePants' first episode), HipDot—best known for their influencer collaborations and marble packaging—launched a skin-care and makeup collection inspired by everyone's favorite underwater sponge. For the most part, the collection is everything you'd expect; the eyeshadow palette features show-appropriate shades like Bikini Bottom Blue, and there's a coconut oil-infused lip gloss called Jelly Fish. Cute, right?
