JUST when you thought there were no more superheroes worth making a movie about and then comes SHAZAM aka Captain Marvel! And you know what…we couldn’t be happier! Anyone who remembers the old live action tv show that used to run Saturday mornings will be grinning all the way thru this trailer.
“Chuck’s” Zachary Levi is a fantastic pick to play Billy Batson’s alter ego Shazam.
Batson, a 14-year-old foster kid, 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?
If the foul talking Deadpool is on one side of the Marvel universe…then Shazam would be his goody two shoes counterpart in the DC Universe.
Oh and if you haven’t seen it…below is what we used to watch as kids on TV!
