The first Shazam was a fun, exciting, youth-focused adventure in a corner of the DC universe that felt mostly at arms-length from the rest of the DC characters and their grim-dark-world problems. But now in the wake of the Snyder Cut Justice League release and the Black Adam fiasco, it finds itself sitting awkwardly amongst the rubble of a franchise. Is the charm of the first film enough to win it some friends? Or will it just fall victim to the ravages of superhero fatigue?
We have a lot of opinions about this film and they are contained herein; for better or worse. Jill, Dion and Quinny all are shouting “Shazam” as loudly as possible, but so far, no lightning bolt has come to save them from this film, or put them out of their misery.
