I think they developing Blue Bettle as their Spider-Man Homecoming. Shazam really has no comparison he's a kid that turns into a superhero. Disney and Sony don't have that and WB should keep him unique.

He's a kid that turns into a superhero in a movie where they're going to easter egg/name drop the heck out of this established universe. He'll have his clique of kids. He'll have a nerdier than him sidekick. He'll also have a bald villain in a fur collared jacket. Cameo from another hero...tbd.

Iron Man was more than a cameo in Homecoming though...

He was his Uncle Ben. /sarcasm

 

Should also add if there's a pivotal moment where Billy loses his powers because he messed up that bad and has to make do with his wits & sidekick, I'd say this comes full circle.

Will the trailer to Shazam be released this week or the next? I don't think they will hold the trailer off longer than that.

Like Aquaman. A "final" trailer mid-February/early March wouldn't be surprising. But Warner may release more stuff online.

FWIW, when I saw the early screening for Lego Movie 2, they just played the old Shazam trailer. Maybe we'll get something new for the general release, but I guess it makes sense.

Over the past year WB has changed their marketing track a lot. The days of 4 trailers for their CBMs is over. Last year Meg, The Nun, Crazy Rich Asians and a few other of their releases only had one trailer. The Nun barely had one trailer, it only had a 90 second teaser.

 

There was a great interview with their marketing head saying they prefer focusing on constant splashes of marketing closer to release rather than one big splash. And that they held back on releasing second trailers for a number of their movies since the first trailers met or exceeded their internal metrics. I guess they finally realized audiences don't care about marketing till maybe a month or 6 weeks out.

They hired a new head of marketing at the start of 2018. Coincidentally, they also haven't had a flop since Father Figures during the end of 2017

Yeah, good for WB. They really laid it on thick with the number of trailers for BvS, especially.

I don't think awareness is high on this one. Shazam isn't Aquaman, which received plenty of exposure from Justice League.  This needs a stronger marketing push.

Aquaman received a lot of negative exposure from JL tho it didn't hurt him cause the actual movie was good

Shazam is gonna be YUGE, people are craving for "new" Comicbook characters.
