As far as "get there first", are you referring to the DC Captain Marvel/Shazam! ? Because that guy would never be an easy sell with audiences, if you ask me...
He's a far more famous character than Carol Danvers...and they've been kicking around a Shazam movie for several years. Supposedly, it's on their slate.
I could see Marvel making the move to have that name associated with their films.
