I don’t say this lightly. I think Shazam will be one of the best DC movies they’ve released. Before I explain why you gotta watch this trailer.
In my opinion, this is exactly what DC needs. We’ve seen the gritty edgy DC in Man of Steel, Batman v. Superman, and Justice League and one thing is clear; Audiences don’t want it. The best movie they’ve released so far has been Wonder Woman and one of the things people loved most is the fun ‘fish out of water’ style of the film. DC needs comedy and lighthearted characters to reinvigorate the franchise. They has been treating their heroes like soldiers in The Hurt Locker when they should have been using them the way they were always intended, an escape from reality. These are grown adults in skin-tight colourful outfits, not people to be taken seriously. It looks like Shazam will be taking that lesson to heart.
