In our latest episode of Lights, Camera, Discussion, we have a spoiler filled discussion on ‘Shazam!; and what it means for the DC Extended Universe at large.
In modern day popular culture, superhero movies have become the biggest money-minting properties. With DC Comics and Warner Brothers running their source material into the ground, the responsibility to drive a resurgence fell on Shazam - the original Captain Marvel.
Earlier in the day, we posted a spoiler-free review of Shazam!. If you haven’t watched the movie and you don’t want the movie spoiled for you, please read the review.
With Billy turning into ‘a slightly less cool version of Superman’, viewers were treated to a tonality very alien to DCEU. They’ve definitely knocked the ball out of the park with ‘Shazam!’ as it excels in every department. Be it cinematography, action, writing, acting or direction, they’ve finally delivered a product they can be proud of.
Watch our latest episode of Lights, Camera, Discussion here:
There is a mid-credit scene and a post credit one. The mid-credit scene is somewhat important for the ‘Shazam!’ sequel whereas the last one is a great sequence from the montage where Freddy is trying to help Billy figure out his powers.
