SHAZAM: OFFICIAL 1st Picture And Logo

 

If Shazam is supposed to be the Superhero version of the Tom Hanks movie ‘BIG’, I can’t help wondering how much better a bruiser like John Cena would have looked in the role.  As a die-hard DC fan, I have my fingers crossed for this movie, but everything I’ve seen so far has been discouraging.   This image of the superhero Shazam sucking on a soda, just literally sucks.  It doesn’t look funny, it’s just ‘meh’ !  Zachary Levi already has such a goofy persona,  based on a lot of characters he’s played, so the ad doesn’t look ironic, it looks like the norm for him…  But hopefully the movie will be great, and we’ll all see how wrong we were.  Again, fingers crossed!!!!

 

OFFICIAL SYNOPSIS…

“We all have a superhero inside us, it just takes a bit of magic to bring it out. In Billy Batson’s (Angel) case, by shouting out one word—SHAZAM!—this streetwise 14-year-old foster kid can turn into the adult Super Hero Shazam (Levi), courtesy of an ancient wizard. Still a kid at heart—inside a ripped, godlike body—Shazam revels in this adult version of himself by doing what any teen would do with superpowers: have fun with them! Can he fly? Does he have X-ray vision? Can he shoot lightning out of his hands? Can he skip his social studies test? Shazam sets out to test the limits of his abilities with the joyful recklessness of a child. But he’ll need to master these powers quickly in order to fight the deadly forces of evil controlled by Dr. Thaddeus Sivana (Strong).”
