Comic book and superhero movies are all the rage these days, what with so many incredible movies releasing. But, since we cover so much Marvel and 'Avengers' (who can blame us?), here's us taking a little break and talking about 'Shazam'.
This is for all those people complaining about all the 'Captain Marvel' articles and how we don't cover DC enough. Enjoy!
So, the movie is releasing on April 5th and so it was time for the first, spoiler-free reviews to come out and they're all positive so far. The movie is basically getting a unanimous thumbs up from people who have watched it.
There's a special mention for Zachary Levi and how brilliantly he basically portrays a young adolescent. It's entertaining, joyful, and sweet. Moreover, people are saying it completely understands the superhero genre.
My spoiler-free #review thread of #Shazam
The Donner's Superman of our generation, Shazam has so much heart and goes back to the original core of the superhero genre. This movie makes us believe in a world where Superheroes could exist and be loved at the same time. PT 1/15 pic.twitter.com/wh4TFrSPcn
This is a long review thread.
There are many fantasy elements though, but inserted in a real world, with relatable people and situations. In such a way that you really believe that all those things could coexist. Basically what the #DCEU tried since #ManOfSteel, but is Shazam who better hit the goal. PT 2/15— Luiz Fernando (@Luiz_Fernando_J) March 23, 2019
Let's hope so.
The cast is perfect in their characters having the time of their lives, and there is chemistry everywhere. Mark Strong delivers a good villain, the supporting characters are awesome. I loved Billy's adoptive parents. Zachary Levi will get the praises he truly deserves. PT 10/15— Luiz Fernando (@Luiz_Fernando_J) March 23, 2019
To summarise, #Shazam is a triumph, understands the superhero genre like few did recently. Amazing cast and storytelling. An emotional rollercoaster. As said in my reaction, a Gift for the genre, and a winner for WB.
PS: wait til the end of the last bunch of credits. PT 15/15
This movie reminded me of my childhood. I HATED MY CHILDHOOD!
That Billy Batson is a MENACE-IN-TRAINING!
I yelled, I laughed, I may have even shed a tear.
#Shazam ably carries the ball forward for DC's movie universe from #Aquaman. Big action, big laughs, big heart underneath, with terrific star turns from both @AsherAngel & @ZacharyLevi.
(I also have to give it up for how well the marketing kept the best surprises under wraps!)
Well, that's good.
My Non-Spoilery thoughts on SHAZAM!
SHAZAM is the 1-2-3 punch of the DCCU solo movies, continuing the streak from WONDER WOMAN to AQUAMAN to this fun Big Red Cheese-y flick! @ZacharyLevi @AsherAngelâ© â¦@Jgrazerofficialâ© are all perfect! Will watch EVERY movie in this franchise! pic.twitter.com/q0uYHphqGf
That's one way to put it.
Ain't talked about #Shazam much but I think if you don't “like” this movie or find it “entertaining” you're probably dead on the inside lmfao.— 3-6 Mafia Gang (@MichaelHJordan) March 25, 2019

Let's hope so.
The fun thing is, #SHAZAM is basically creating a VERY new version of the whole mythos for an audience that will mostly have never heard of it, but oldschool/hardcore fans wondering how far/"deep" it's going to go will know like 2 minutes in... and then still be impressed.— Bob Chipman (@the_moviebob) March 24, 2019
#Shazam is easily the best DC Comics movie of the current editions -- an absolute blast from start to finish and impressive balance of fun, heart, and terror. Full review: https://t.co/a2OVm4ojpa pic.twitter.com/LXiSzqx6H2— Brandon Davis (@BrandonDavisBD) March 23, 2019
It's full of surprises!
WB deserves a serious round of applause for the level of restraint they exercised with the marketing. That's not an exaggeration, it's unheard of for a CBM......and that's the closest you'll get to a spoiler from me. Incredible. #Shazam— TheFliteCast (@TheFliteCast) March 23, 2019
