I would not worry about Zachary Levi's ham abilities- if you would like the short version of his smarmy, scene chewing abilities, watch 'Tangled'. He is Flynn Rider.

For the more extended version, watch 'Chuck', in which he plays a nerd bestowed with intelligence, and fighting capabilities.

He is a lovable goofball. I'd say he's perfect for the role.

I think this looks great. I got a very Deadpool feel from the trailer. PG Deadpool anyways.

One aspect I like in the late 90's-2000's run was that there were 3 Captain Marvels (The Marvel Family, originally called Mary Marvel, Captain Marvel Jr, and of Course Captain Marvel himself). However their power was one power (so if 3 were active they were each 1/3 as powerful)...It was a nice spin on things...

The New 52 version -- from which this film obviously borrows -- expanded on that concept. Without spoiling things, it's clear that they're laying the groundwork to go that way in this film or later films if they choose.

We'll find out soon enough eh.

Yeah I was not expecting a lot from this - never read the comic, thought the concept was a bit daft, got tired of Chuck fairly quickly - but it looks worth checking out once it hits Netflix.

All really mean 'keep wages low for the masses, taxes low for the rich, profits high for the corporations, and accept the decline in public services and amenities this will cause'." - Robin McAlpine from Common Weal

One of my favorite Cap. Marvel stories in the animated shows involved a magic spell that took all adults and sent them away. However, since Capt. Marvel was not an adult, he was not effected and had to solve the case.

It wasn’t that he wasn’t effected, it’s that he could go back and forth between the split adult and kid worlds by changing back and forth between Marvel and Billy.

That's right. He had to solve the case as Billy IIRC.

I saw it a while ago, but it was still a good story especially for the character.

It’s a story that I frequently remember and think about just because of how they kind of gloss over or ignore that their scenario would have caused the deaths of thousands if not millions of children worldwide.

If i remeber correctly that was a young justice episode with klarion the witch boy doing the spell on the kid side and someone else doing it on the adult side. Am i remembering that correctly?


These are my opinions. This is how I feel. Others may feel differently. This needs to be stated for some reason.

So the director said the rumor of a new trailer on Tuesday was bunk. Oh well. Gotta get a final trailer fairly soon though...the release is less than 3 months away.

The "SHAZAM!" jumping off the roof is a cool shot.

I think this is an episode from Young Justice when Klarion and the other villains made a separate dimension for the adults and children.

And likely killed millions of children in the process.

...and?

Unless you're thinking that they're boring from that story here, or will for the (hopefully!) soon to be announced sequel?

I think the movie looks fun and totally fits the character, but I always find myself wishing Black Adam was attached to something else. He's one of my favorite DC villains, but I don't see him getting adapted well into the kind of franchise this wants to be. He's like DC's answer to Dr. Doom and I fear he'll be adapted just as well.

The rock was supposed to be playing black adam awhile back. Dont know if that is still a thing.

I believe he’s still attached to the Black Adam project, but I don’t know what kind of project there is. Seems like the DC schedule is mostly full into 2021.

It was probably a good call to keep him out of the film. He’d overshadow everything they’re trying to do with this one. I don’t think Shazam is going to be 100% light comedy however. If the rumors about certain characters are right, it should have some darker moments.

So John Glover may be part of the cast. Uncle Marvel, perhaps?

I liked the comic where Superman found out that Captain Marvel is just a kid and goes to the Wizard and yells at him about how kids should be in school and goofing off not worrying about super villains targeting him or his friends/family or having to save the world.

Looking good. I think this one will be another nice win for DC.

Supposedly it cost under $100 mil to make, so turning a profit should be a layup.

That's another thing I think. Movies don't need to be gigantic hundreds and hundreds of millions of dollars things. I would genuinely love a Batman movie that was just about him solving a crime involving a villain. No cities being blown up or being put under siege or the like, just something that has the stakes really maybe about a handful of peoples lives that you get to know over the course of the movie.

You know, like, "Mask of the Phantasm" or "Under the Red Hood..." My two favourite Batman films.


Anyhow, back on topic. The final gag at the end of the trailer had me audibly giggling.

Yeah, I believe the director of Shazam has stated that it's not a fate-of-the-world-hanging-in-the-balance film with a swirling vortex in the sky and such. Which is actually pretty cool. If only the studio had figured that out that when they did SS.

The new head of DC films is from New Line, where they did horror films and learned how to do a lot with a little.

My kids are looking forward to this one, and it looks like it'll be a fun time.

I'm not feeling the need to see this right away, but I want to see it. Probably skip it in theaters, but I'm watching my preferred sources to see if there's more to it.
