With good reason for this one. Trailer sells it as a comedy and it looks like a TV show.

I'll donate to your eye glasses fund.

have you seen the costume...?

with the fake muscles and the comedy and kid stuff, it looks like a TV show.

Its the only superhero film I'm looking forward to this year but I am not expecting it to do huge numbers at box office.

This is so dumb, equating comedy in a film with kids and a suit with fake muscles to a TV show? Does not compute.

When was the tragic moment people started to forget or ignore that comedy works best when it looks cheap.

I actually think this will open higher than people expected, but the legs won't be that great comparing to the WOM, because End Game.

 

However I still believe the legs will still be better than people expected. just like Wonder Woman and Aquaman.

260M

700M

So kids and comedy now equal tv?

Your comments just keep getting more and more ridiculous.

If DC makes movies look epic, you complain it's too dark. If they make them colorful, you complain it looks like a TV show.

I swear at first I thought he said “Remember when Superman died?”

This spot is from Hong Kong. Pretty cool it mentions three DC superheros.

I thought I heard "Cause I'm a Superman guy." "Me too." "Cause heroes fly." A slight jab at Batman.

Maybe the film itself will have some WW-related wink-wink moments.

I certainly hope so.

Speaking of which...In the comics, the letters in SHAZAM stood for the powers that the superhero channeled from a host of legendary heroes and deities: S for Solomon (wisdom), H for Hercules (strength), A for Atlas (stamina), Z for Zeus (ability to  control lightning and overall enhancement of his other powers), A for Achilles (courage and invulnerability) and M for Mercury (speed and flight). I wonder if this will be so in the film itself mainly because this is supposedly set in the DCEU (or not?), which already has a daughter of Zeus running around out there somewhere.

Hmmm...

If the diverse part is true:

 

Then the commercials do a poor job showing it. The movie looks very white (male). It will be interesting to see the demographics of the opening weekend.

The diversity comes from his foster siblings. Shazam has 2 white foster siblings, one girl and one boy, one chinese sibling, one mexican sibling and the youngest foster sibling is a little black girl. None of the foster siblings have been shown much in the trailers except for Freddy. So yes lots of different etnicities are in Shazam.
