I hope they get the tone of the film right. I haven't paid much attention to Nu52 Shaman but it just didn't seem like my cup of tea. I was really looking forward to Billy Batson and the Power of Shazam years ago but that never materialized. This could be so much fun if it's handled right.

All they have to do is take influence from Jeff Smith's update of Monster Society of Evil or Kunkel and Baltazar's Billy Batson and the Magic of Shazam! and they'd have a perfect Captain Marvel for the movies. It doesn't need to be bleak or miserable or have deaths caused by the hero like the sad sacks working on anything doing with the movie version of Superman. Just have a light, fun superhero movie kids can see with their parents and everyone can enjoy.

8/15: Zack Snyder will have nothing to do with Shazam:

http://www.newsarama.com/30636-shaz...ematic-universe-zack-snyder-not-involved.html

If only he has nothing to do with DCEU the better. At least he won't be hoodwinking Shazam at that a good thing.

8/19: Rumor:Sam Raimi may be up for Shazam:

http://www.screengeek.net/2016/08/18/rumor-sam-raimi-could-direct-shazam/

Sam Raimi filmmaking skill set put Zack Snyder who has no filmmaking skills to shame, This is a big upgrade that DCEU needs.

...That would probably be the most anti-climactic casting reveal for a major role in a really long time, especially when we haven't heard anything about them looking for Shazam and the movie is still down the pipeline :sweat:.

Suffice it to say, I had no idea who this guy was two seconds ago....

Hmm. I can see why they'd choose him; he's previously worked with The Rock twice, and the second of those (San Andreas) was one of the biggest box office surprises of 2015.

OTOH, he's never directed a film with a positive RT score, which leaves me a bit apprehensive...

Well, at this point, what do they have to lose? As everything else has been critically underwhelming.

I can't speak for the comics, but this may be the best year for the Spider-Man franchise in my lifetime.
This is as weird as the time McDonalds served pizza in the early 1990s .

I need my Internet back...the past week has been so boring and holidays break just started for me
At first, I thought Brian Hohlfeld working on many shows Nicole Dubuc worked on was just a coincidence . It turns out they're married. I previously thought the Paul Dini / Misty Lee marriage had the largest age gap (he was born in 1957 while she was born in 1976), but this is the one that's larger (he was born in 1957 while she was born in 1978, making 21 years). I'm not complaining, but this is surprising.
