6 little :censored:head SHAZAMs walking around... Who needs the Justice League now..?

:roflmao:

I think that was part of the magic in Shazam. Although it recognized the wider DCU with its backpacks, shirts, posters and even the Batarang and Superman bullet, it can stand on its own with a wide character pool.

[Sorry, can't watch your video at work, and not sure if it explains anything.]

Nah. I post videos that don't actually provide information. Like someone posting how much they hate a film repeatedly where it become background noise after a while.

:nyah:

I did enjoy all of the Batman and Superman references. Great stuff!

At least this Captain Marvel is good. I was really hoping they'd call him that at some point.

I have a feeling David Sandberg wanted to go down that path, but realized the legal troubles were far from worth it.

I do love that he melded in his Horror genre background into the film. Even including in the opening scene with the cops in the pawn shop you see an Annabelle doll in the bottom left corner as a nod to the films.

You went to Endgame SIX TIMES but never even bothered to see Shazam once at the theater?..

Endgame is about 22,000 times better than SHAZAM, so... Yes.

Asher and Jack recognized by the Academy of Science Fiction, Fantasy and Horror Films for the 45th Saturn Awards.  (thumbsu

Too bad Tom Holland is in the mix as he's won this thing twice, back-to-back the past two years...

Anyone familiar with or know the details on what this "Shazam! Documentary" is?  Or was this the same documentary that's available to view at Movies Anywhere?  o.O

Awesome!  They had me at "Discover the unbelievable history behind the iconic."  Gonna have to watch this when it's available on the DC Universe website.  Much appreciate your chasing this info up and sharing.  Cheers!

Hold the bus!  They've made a The Banana Splits Movie and Scooby-Doo is 50?!  Jeez louise, I'm old....  :preach:

LOVED this movie - glad it's finally out on DVD! I haven't purchased a DVD in quite a while, but this one's going on my shelf, for sure.

On a similar note, have you all seen Alex Ross' timely tribute, "Echoes of Captain Marvel", that he released just as this movie was coming out?

I thought it was awesome that he decided to help clear the air on how very many comics, TV & movie properties had based their basic concept on the Shazam! premise. It's really beautiful, particularly considering that he drew it on a regular 11"x17" piece of paper.

Here's an example of the piece (you can see Zachary Levi to the right of the CC Beck version (front & center) - I'm working on a key to the characters, but I'm missing 3 of them so far:

Echoes-Of-Captain-MarvelCOLOR.thumb.jpg.9558b25ac285c370d71947a97b82ae63.jpg

And if anyone knows who the red, fire-haired giant is (and the two guys on his shoulder), I'd be grateful for the information.

Pax, harmonia,

That was outstanding! Movies Anywhere must have that as an MA-only offering.

Here's a cool one Alex Ross did in June.

Hey there fellow fan. Check out the video I just bumped from Alex Ross about the history of The Original Captain Marvel, and what motivated him about this piece. The answer may be in there. :foryou:
