    You're not alone.. whilst I enjoyed the movie, I felt weird, sitting there as an adult male, with a buddy... it really did feel like it was aimed for kids.

    Which is totally fine.

    John Cena - no thanks, not shazam! Billy was good and has a couple more movies I would say... thing is, Billy seemed kinda, reserved, serious... when he was transformed, that didn't translate.. Shazam! was way too jovial and excited - I almost felt that Zack Levi naturally, as himself, in movies, was more akin to Billy.

    If anything, Patrick Warburton would have been great and the kid that played Freddy to be Billy.

    Such a wonderful movie. I can't praise it enough. Fun, heartfelt and imaginative. Sandberg knocked it out of the park. I can't wait for part 2.

    That's basically what happened with Batman Begins (just with an inverted domestic/international box office ratio).

    People like to write their own headlines nowadays. So, even when a movie was profitable, they'll put on their box office analyst hat on, slap out their ComicBookMovie.com University degree and expertly write it off as a disappointment, simply based on their personal preference.

    Shazam was profitable, it's impressive considering it was sandwiched between the two most hyped MCU movies, and it was released 20 days before the most anticipated comic book movie (Avengers Endgame).

    Just rewatching Shazam on my DCEU marathon and there's a scene that really points out to me but it makes so much sense. Well it sets the stage for The Rock as Black Adam in the sense that the Wizard Shazam (Djimon Hounsou) said he chose his champion thousands of years ago and that this champion who is most likely The Rock's character of Black Adam used the Shazam powers for revenge and thousands well millions died...I just think that that was a great way of introducing Black Adam into the DCEU without us actually seeing The Rock

    Finally got round to seeing this and jeez what a blast. The whole bit with Sivana trying to do his villain speech to Shazam over the city had me and the missus in stitches. One of those films I genuinely wished I had seen sooner.

    I wonder how Snyder Cut JL will tie into Shazam if it does at all, going forward in this reformed, interconnected shared universe since Snyder Cut breathes new life into this shared universe of the DCEU? Or what the future ramifications will be for Billy Batson or his own universe (Shazam family) since Superman did show up at the end of Shazam when he showed up to Billy's school

    It doesn't need to tie in to it at all. Can be a news report at best

    Pinch of salt as I have no clue who That Hashtag Show are. Although I think it’s a no brainer he’ll appear in Shazam 2.

    Much as I'd like to see more of Cavill's Superman after Zack Snyder's Justice League (seriously, we're long overdue for another Superman solo movie), I want to wait for something more official.
