    This could be fun.... Hope it’s not another suicide squad cause I thought from the trailer that would be deadly!

    i guess you lot never read shazam comics or else you realise that billy is smart kid and know how to resposible , when he given gift of six gods he uses the powers resposible in the comics




  • And he can be boring as feck.
    Do you honestly think that he will be the immature Shazam beyond the mid point of the film?
    He'll learn to be responsible here, and show character progression.

    shazam kills people aboard a bus and on the street with lightning bolts , heros suppose are created to defend us not kill us

    He's not killing anyone, watch the trailer again. He f*cks up and causes the bus to crash, but the trailer / film immediately calls him out for causing it.

    It's obvious the arc will be about Batson learning that .. well, with great power... comes great responsibility?

    Oh good, something original with a superhero film, at last.

    Hard to see how else you could spin any story of a teenager who comes into possession of something that empowers them. It'd take more effort just to steer clear of the analogy with adolescence :)

    So, boring and not like a teen at all.
    FFS he's going to get powers, mess around, **** up/get his ass handed to him, potentially lose powers and get them back, learn from his mistakes, grow as a person/hero, beat the bad guy, and then... profit???

    aquaman movie was similar to the comics that why it did brilliantly



    on the screen



    only reason dc justice league and Batman vs superman movies were crap because director never focus on the comics

    You seem to have a habit of only reading some of the comics, and giving out when the film doesn't match the actual few comics you've read. The New 52 version of Shazam/Billy seems to be the version that this film is based on from the trailers. The writers and director have focused on the comics, just not the ones you read.

    big deal that just one comics that doesn't count as comic book super hero movie, its comedy endy story




  • Guardians is a comedy, it's not a superhero movie. It's a comedy end of story...
    Ant-Man is a comedy, it's not a superhero movie. It's a comedy end of story...

    Maybe you should wait for the actual movie. Although deciding that the tiny part you've seen from the trailers is the only part that exists is in keeping with your habit of deciding that the few comics you've read are the only version of the character that exists...


  • Registered Users Posts: 7,516 ✭✭✭Mr Crispy


    Think I'm guilty of the same thing, to be honest. :( One time, I read only a few posts from this one person, but concluded they must be a gobshite all the time.


  • Registered Users Posts: 305 ✭✭Smertrius


    i won't care if this much if wasn't his 80th anniversary , i just want good movie for his 80th anniversary , taking piss shazam movie and showing him as zero not hero, if i saw new batman this year and that bad this i question it too i glad batman movie coming out next year or year after and not its 80th anniversary this year




  • Oh No


  • Moderators, Category Moderators, Entertainment Moderators Posts: 35,189 CMod ✭✭✭✭pixelburp


    Hard reality: Shazam is not a popular, well known character. He could be 180 for the difference it would make.

    And thank God someone had the sense to bring a little humour to an obviously humourless scenario.

    God even the name is daft. I love comic books but sometimes it's worth stepping back and acknowledging that half the premises are a bit silly

    Where did you see this advanced screening to come to that conclusion?


  • Registered Users Posts: 2,957 ✭✭✭ThePott


    Did someone say advanced screening?! :pac:

    Omniplex cinemas are showing advanced screenings of Shazam on the 27th of March (Wednesday Week), they're open to the public just got my ticket.

    Not bad for a film not out until the 5th of April.


  • Registered Users Posts: 305 ✭✭Smertrius


    if Shazam wasn't harming humans and shazam not breaking the law in the movie would but since he is harming humans and is breaking the law in the movie is crap
