Critics Consensus: An effortlessly entertaining blend of humor and heart, Shazam! is a superhero movie that never forgets the genre's real power: joyous wish fulfillments.

I love re-finding out how weirdly bad Rotten Tomatoes is at updating its score every time a blockbuster's review embargo is dropped.

How many reviews?

 

Looks like there are a little over 30 reviews being counted, one of which is rotten, that I can see just by manually counting on the /reviews page.

I don’t see this doing anywhere near captain marvel but it doesn’t need to.

 

I’m hoping for 400-500mil.

Are horror directors the key to DC's success on film?

It’s still empty. But I managed to read the consensus by clicking DCEU franchise with list of other films. Guess it’s around 40 reviews.

The collider youtoube review makes a few good points about that.

This is really getting some proper rave reviews.

Evan Dossey is the guy who in the Nolan Batman days would have been in for a world of abuse. 

 

Thankfully that craziness has at least somewhat passed.

Will probably end up around Wonder Woman/Thor Ragnarok level on RT.

Hopefully, Birds of Prey will continue this trend of favorably reviewed DCEU films. So excited for this!

That's a really good question, I wonder how they'll deal with them growing up
Even for the sequel they'll be already too mature...
huge part of Shazam's magic is them being kids, if they'll go on showing them as grown ups I have a feeling it won't work.

A sequel will be out by late 2021 hopefully.
