You can’t outrun family, and that marks the central theme of “The Glass Castle,” the adaptation of the best-selling memoir by Jeannette Walls, that will offer a bit of counter-programming this summer.

The blockbuster Disney division has taken over a few floors in the Frank G. Wells building on the Disney lot and, unbeknownst to many, it’s been re-decorated with concept art, costumes, and props that show the history of the company. There were a number of interesting revelations regarding films such as Ryan Coogler’s “Black Panther” and Taika Waititi’s “Thor: Ragnarok” during the 90-minute tour, but during one stop concept art for “Ant-Man and the Wasp” and “Captain Marvel” were on display.
