Shazam was excellent. Really funny, every character was done well, the pacing was good. The biggest complaint is that the studio messed up big time. This should have been released just before Christmas. This movie would have made twice what it did if the marketing was done right. Easily one of the best films DC has done in years.

Yes. I like my DC dark , my Marvel light , and my Star Wars Lucas.  However, I consider wonder woman More on the light side and absolutely loved it.

Despite it being let down by the incredibly poor ending...? One of the good things about Shazam! was it maintained consistency throughout.

Should be wrapping up soon. Still around the same sales results based on production costs.

With an estimated marketing budget far below the average superhero movie ($50M), it already passed the break-even point leading to the Black Adam announcement.

Really neat BTS VFX explaination of how the OG Captain Marvel does his "lightning with my hands" scene.  :smile:

That is the thing that confused me the most.  The movie was filmed with a winter/Christmas background and WB released it in April.  The movie didn't fit the season and it seemed a bit "off" to me.  Was this originally supposed to be released in Nov/Dec and happen to get pushed back?

Always lovin' Mayo "SEN" Naito's superb artwork and her skillful weighted lines.  Excited that she's working on the new Shazam! book series, her origin pages of King Kid in Issue #3 are outstanding! (thumbsu

That would be my guess. Would've been much better off with a November release.

Shazam finally broke $363M worldwide, though still sitting at 3.6X production budget.

Tommy Oliver meets Pedro Peña.  You can always count on Jovan Armand to post the funniest Shazam! cast viral videos.   "Hey! Green's my color."  :roflmao:

I have a feeling someone will be writing an opinion piece on this soon.
