Shazam

Recommended Posts

DC(or WB) doesn't know how to world build, or at least doesn't have the patience to. That is the main reason the Marvel movies flow so well. DC started out with established characters in their world that we, as an audience didn't have any connection to besides Superman. They threw Wonder Woman in a movie with zero context, and without explaining what her limits are. If you watch Batman V Superman it looks like she is stronger than Superman since she was holding her own against Doomsday. Batman has a whole history in the world that we don't know so we have to pull from other versions of the character to fill the gaps in our heads.

I'm glad that this version of CM seems laid back and carefree, and doesn't share the douchebag qualities of the new 52 CM/Billy Batson.

For the longest time, Black Adam was but as of last year, he isn't. Dwayne Johnson is apparently still slated for the part though in a future film. Instead, it's apparently Mark Strong as Dr. Sivana.

I'm hoping for a People's Elbow that crushes a mountain.

Probably doesn't fit Black Adam. Don't Care.

I like Black Adam better as an anti-hero, though, especially during his run with the JSA.

Looks good. Not anything spectacular, but good. I'd rather see more movies like this from DC where it might exceed expectations than the overhyped letdowns we are used to.

Sivana having powers is dumb as hell. 

It's not totally unprecedented. They probably wanted to differentiate him from Luthor.

Shazam is fairly well known, but Sivana is not as much.

(I prefer the name Captain Marvel, but the copyright and trademark mess that dates back to Mar-Vell is what it is.)

I actually used to have that issue, by the way. Who knows what happened to it.

I am an old man. Get off my lawn.

I recently treated my parents to see Aquaman, my mom thought it was that or watch more reruns of "Chuck." when the trailer for Shazam played my mother pointed out that she managed to watch some more Chuck.
