Plot: We all have a superhero inside us, it just takes a bit of magic to bring it out. In Billy Batson's case, by shouting out one word--SHAZAM!--this streetwise 14-year-old foster kid can turn into the adult superhero Shazam, 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 Doctor Thaddeus Sivana.

Hoping this may be the GOTG (too soon?) for the DCU.

Lesser known hero, leaning towards the comedy.

But definitely won't hold my breath, DC shoots itself in the foot nearly every time.

Chuck is a huge geek and really into the superhero stuff, I have faith in him but DC not so much.

This is what the movie should be. Reminds me of the Shazam from the Young Justice and Justice League cartoons.

Didn't take long for DC to hire James Gunn.

When I saw this thread title I thought they were rebooting that movie where Shaq played the genie. Then I realized that movie was called kazaam. Disappointed I am.

This looks pretty much exactly like what it's supposed to be, other than some less than subtle asthetic design choices.

I hope it sucks like all the other DC films and I hope it's the LAST film that the DCEU creates and goes bankrupt. I'm a completely irrational bitch when it comes to this stuff and I don't know why... I mean, yeah it's because I love the MCU but I don't know why I can't love both franchises. If I love the MCU, I should love other nerdy superhero type of stuff right? But for some reason I literally hate the DCEU and all of its characters (Nolan's Batman films get a pass, obv).

I liked Captain Marvel from the comics and animated films. Hope this is good but its been one dissapointment after another with DC.

If this and Aquaman tank this is the last from the DCEU besides a WW2 I would bet. Having said that, this might be decent. Aquaman sure as shit won't be.

I think they are going for the right tone for this movie. That said, it looked boring, and not funny to me.
