Now that Shazam/Captain Marvel is out there for the general audience, could this lead to Disney/Marvel finally bringing forward Miracleman?

Shazam! is holding on strong with another $6.155 million in the bank yesterday, bringing its 15-day tally to $110.2 million. A third frame north of $16 million is the target.

Should come in #2 behind The Curse of La Llorona's #1. Currently at 2.9X production budget before any international box office updates.

I'm really surprised how poor this is doing money wise, especially when reviews have been so positive. Once again I have no clue why people spend the way they do

It was so much better than Aquaman and Black Panther.

Well written and well acted! This is my favourite recent DC offering.

Zac was perfectly cast for the role.

Not quite as good as 'Black Panther' movie for me but Shazam had a lot of heart, and a solid young family cast of actors. Glad Calgary expo got 3 of the lead Shazam cast actors for sigs. Also for those that are about to see the movie, there is an extra clip after the credits that foreshadows Shazam II movie plot.

Sandberg is flying high with that one, as to get this much from Kojima is huge.

That would be interesting.

Some very pretentious dialogue would need to be excised from it.

I recall one issue in the Book 3 Olympus storyline suddenly transitioning into some of the most boring and overwritten purple prose that I’ve ever tried and failed to wade through, in any comic I’ve ever read.

I have never read Miracleman all the way through to the end. I wouldn't mind being able to go from beginning to end in a steady reading.

From Sandberg about those cut scenes.

I'm glad they redid the Sivana office scene. It gave it a more dark and twisted atmosphere with the new cut.

+1  The office helped visually underscore his zealous quest as an Occultist of Magick and how exhaustive Dr. Sivana's life long search has been to return to The Rock of Eternity.  (thumbsu

'Shazam' Hit Big Box Office Milestone

Quote

Shazam! hit $300 million global

 

First off, Shazam! earned $17.34 million in its third weekend of domestic release, bringing its 17-day cume to $121.342 million.  That's a stunning 29% drop, which is lower than the 29.5% third-weekend drop for Wonder Woman back in 2017. Yes, that's partially because of Good Friday and Easter Sunday, but that's still a hell of a hold for the DC Films flick. Heck, it's the seventh-smallest third-weekend-drop for any big comic book and/or superhero movie over the last 32 years.

 

For reference (and I'm being generous with the "superhero" designation), it's behind Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse (+15% in 2018), The Matrix (-20% in 1999), Blade (whose third weekend was Labor Day in 1998), The Crow (whose third weekend was Memorial Day in 1994), Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves (-28% in 1991), Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (-25% in 1990) and Robocop (-26% in 1987). That may not mean anything in the long run, but it took me too long to look that up (even Batman dipped 36% in weekend three and Wonder Woman dipped 29.5% in weekend three) for me not to share it.

WB created a Youtube 'Heromanager' account in support of the movie. Though first I am hearing of it.
