    Interestingly, Jackie Early Haley did appear in an episode of the 1970s SHAZAM! Saturday morning TV series in the role of a juvenile delinquent.

    That is impossible; movie crews made the biggest fatal mistake, there no way people get out of the bus after the crash, people get killed and injuries yet, people walk out of the damage bus miracle. somebody goof

    That's what I've been thinking for a while too. Billy will have to learn the hard way that having powers and being a hero is not as easy and fun as it may seem to him. He has to learn something, it can't all be fun and laughs.

    I was sold on it from the first trailer. Did not need the Eminem laden second trailer and actully will knock them for that, but otherwise I am excited as hell and cannot wait for this movie to drop.

    Do you think someone at Marvel is looking at the positive reaction to Shazam and thinking "Damn, maybe we should have pushed for a Prime movie".

    well, who knows. if those Malibu contracts are ever revisited again, maybe we can see some of the Ultraverse characters in movies. but not now. oh well.

    Part of my issue with Sivana in this is that it feels like they're using him as a stand-in for Black Adam.

    Especially when he calls Billy the "Chosen One."

    I already have it but still good to know it may get some publicity. It would be nice if they did the old movie serial too.

    They are clearly teasing what the character's name will be going by the trailers. Sadly, I'm sure it won't be Captain Marvel.
    His name is CAPTAIN MARVEL.

    I wonder if they are trying to avoid Lex Luthor comparisons though you are probably right. Makes me wonder why they didn't just use Black Adam.

    I think they are just going with the Geoff Johns version were Sivana starts out big and buff and by the end the power will burn him out and twist him into the more shrivelled up version.

    Probably because they couldn't, what with Dwayne Johnson being "cast" as Black Adam and wanting to spearhead his own solo movie rather then be the main villain of a Shazam film.

    It's curious because Dwayne Johnson is an executive producer on SHAZAM! As he was also on FIGHTING WITH MY FAMILY, where he used his celebrity to promote the movie and played a small role in the film (which was heaviy featured in the trailer).

    And I like the Rock as much as the next guy but I really don't like him having tied up Black Adam for years for a movie that might not even see the light of day
