#206.5 | Do We Really Need a “Shazam!” Movie? | #saysomethingextra

Between an old man leading a boy into an abandoned subway, an adult superhero with the mind of a child, a talking tiger, and a small army of orphaned sidekicks, there are a few things about Captain Marvel (Billy Batson, not Carol Danvers) and “The Power of Shazam!” comic legacy that may not have aged well. As director David F. Sandberg starts production on the DC Comics Extended Universe live-action “Shazam!” movie, the SSN Crew, but mainly super-fan Brandon, discusses the viability of the property and potential plot details of the film. Spoiler: Ali ain’t here for any foolishness.

(SPOILERS for Geoff Johns & Gary Frank’s 2013 “Shazam!” trade paperback)

    I’m sorry Brandon but my vote is no, we don’t really need a Shazaam movie. The ideas you and Ali came up with reminded me of the flash tv show which leads me to think it would work better as a television series.
