That was fun, let's do it again!
Well the reactions are true, Shazam is a great fun superhero movie! I will admit I only knew bits and pieces about Captain Marvel, so this is my first proper introduction and I want to know more! I like how it's a fun superhero movie, now I love the more dark stuff out there like The Dark Knight and Watchmen but sometimes you just want to have fun and this film greatly delivers. When talks started and we were getting DeWayne Johnson as Captain Marvel I though that was a good choice and Zachary Levi does an outstanding job. Cause you have to remember Captain Marvel is a kid who was granted superpowers so you need an adult actor that captures the spirit of a child and he does that incredibly well, I also like the fact that he doesn't start saving people and being heroic, he's a kid who just so happens to look like an adult so he goes off and does adult stuff because that is what you would do! If you were 11 or 12 years old and got superpowers just like him, you'd do this stuff too! He's not always a nice kid, he can be greedy, he can be a bit stuck up, he can put his needs before others, that's being a kid so I don't wanna hear any, "Oh Captain Marvel isn't a hero! He didn't do anything until the end!" annoying crap like that. He learns and takes some responsibility, he grows into the character. The only thing I really hated was how they teased Superman, because unfortunately Henry was shooting the Mission Impossible movie so he couldn't commit to the part and that sucks, they would have great scene chemistry! Beyond that, it's a good two thumbs up from me! But where do we go from now? We have the Joaquin Phoenix Joker movie coming out this October but beyond that....? I have no idea. We're getting another Wonder Woman movie sometime soon but beyond that I have no clue. So it's interesting to see what DC will have for us in the future.
Well that's all for now, but our comic book buisness isn't finished yet. Tune in next week for more!
