Shazam! (2019)

In theaters April 2019

Quote:
David F. Sandberg (“Annabelle: Creation”) directs New Line Cinema’s “Shazam!,” the origin story that stars Zachary Levi (TV’s “Chuck”) as the titular DC Super Hero, along with Asher Angel (TV’s “Andi Mack”) as Billy Batson, and Mark Strong (the “Kingsman” movies) in the role of Super-Villain Dr. Thaddeus Sivana. Peter Safran (upcoming “Aquaman,” “The Conjuring” and “Annabelle” films) serves as the film’s producer.

We all have a superhero inside us, it just takes a bit of magic to bring it out. In Billy Batson’s (Angel) case, by shouting out one word—SHAZAM!—this streetwise 14-year-old foster kid can turn into the adult Super Hero Shazam (Levi), courtesy of an ancient wizard. Still a kid at heart—inside a ripped, godlike body—Shazam revels in this adult version of himself by doing what any teen would do with superpowers: have fun with them! Can he fly? Does he have X-ray vision? Can he shoot lightning out of his hands? Can he skip his social studies test? Shazam sets out to test the limits of his abilities with the joyful recklessness of a child. But he’ll need to master these powers quickly in order to fight the deadly forces of evil controlled by Dr. Thaddeus Sivana (Strong).

Good question. I don't know. Watching the Shazam trailer they show a Batarang and newspapers about Superman. So he's definitely in that universe. If he makes an appearance in another DC movie is anyones guess. Do you recall the old Shazam 70's tv show? I remember watching it back on the old family tv when we only had 4 channels and no remote. Good times.

Oh dayum!! I do remember that. These old memory synapses haven't worked this hard in years. Lol. You know I'm down for the power hour action. Might have to move it to Cinemax tho.

I dont think it even showed in OZ and if it did I never noticed it. Watching that Trailer they mention Captain Marvel its meant to be DC

This is where it gets confusing. You might want to grab a Fosters. When uttering the word Shazam, Billy Batson is transformed into Captain Marvel. Nowadays Captain Marvel has been dropped and he goes by Shazam, but was called Captain Marvel.

I found this on the Google.;

If you see a male Captain Marvel with red and blue he's Mar-Vell. If you see a female Captain Marvel it is Carol Danvers. If you see a male Captain Marvel in red and gold it is Shazam!

Lol. Better get me a Fosters too.

Zachary Levi as Shazam is a bit too goofy for me, but it could work (Channing Tatum would have been perfect).

Here's a teaser/sneak peek with some new footage. The full trailer is supposed to drop soon (next day or two). It looks pretty good, but WB has fooled me before.

This one looks like a lot of fun - I'm looking forward to seeing it. It'll be especially nice if they let it be its own movie and don't try to tie it into some "superhero universe".

I saw this today in Dolby. I'm happy to say I underestimated how good this would be. From the trailers, I was only expecting light fun. While it had that, it was so much more. The core of the film is about family. It has a lot of heart. All the characters, even the villain, have believable motivations and make sensible decisions. And the family introduced in this film feels incredibly authentic, so much so that I favorably compare it to another film about family which is a high water mark for me, but could be spoilerish:
Spoiler!


The HDR was really good. His lightning powers and glowing chest plate naturally look good, especially in the night scenes. The Atmos was pretty good too with all the lightning shooting all over the place.

There are two credits scenes:
Spoiler!

Well, Shuzam. No not like that, like SHAZAM! Lots of fun and not as dark and serious as other DC films, a little goofy at times ala Guardians of the Galaxy but sill feels like a DC and not a Marvel film. Kickass musical score too.

Director of Shazam!, David F. Sandberg, created a little video essay that's not part of the official extras; although he says it expands on something from the commentary.

My copy of Shazam arrived a bit early and we watched it tonight. Really enjoyed it. Fun movie. Zach Levi was perfect. Some real nice LFE and HDR/DV too.
