Looks like DC are declaring war on Marvel with the release of their Shazam trailer mere days before Captain Marvels release. As many of you know until relativity recently Shazam was also called Captain Marvel so there is a kind of rivalry between the two films. Though I cannot stress this enough the two films are very different and comparing them is like comparing apples and oranges. Captain Marvel seems to be cosmic adventure complete with some 90’s nostalgia and 90’s sarcasm, while Shazam is a different kind of nostalgia in that it shows us every kids dream of being able to not only be an adult, but also a superhero. Of course there are consequences to both.
The film does look fun and I really wish people would stop comparing it to Captain Marvel, still I will be seeing this one because well I think we all need a little fun in our lives. To give you a quick run down the film follows Billy who is a child pure of heart and due to this fact he is chosen to be granted the powers of the Wizard Shazam and become Mankinds Guardian. Think magical Superman with a light touch of Thor and a lot of fun times. This is definitely something the DC films needed, though it seems to not be connected to any of the other DC films, still not really clear on that, but still worth a watch.
