Holy crap, William Goldman!

Although since no one but the writer and producer is listed, I take it New Line optioned the property and Goldman wrote a script and no one's decided if they're making the movie yet.

he probably hasn't even written the script yet

Who needs a script?
Take one muscle-bound man-child, add 6 mystic atrributes, stir with lightning, and serve with nattily-dressed talking tiger.

Wait, that might be the best movie ever. Is Johnny available to play Billy Batson?

He looks ready!

thirteen years pass...

Wait wait did I not know that Zachari Levi is playing Captain Marvel in this thing? I assume this is a direct-to-video venture, then?

i'm just freaked out by a DC movie that looks entertaining in a non-slow motion trainwreck kinda way

Not current on the character, but the "Big" boy-in-man's-body is new to the character, yes? The '70s Saturday kids show, they were distinct personalities, as was the comic, iirc.

Shazam as a giant man boy goes back to the late 80s in the Giffin/DeMatteis Justice League.

still holding out hope for a Prime movie as far as this niche is concerned

Given the creator of the character, I wouldn't hold my breath.

so it's the best DC movie?

EZ Snappin, Tuesday, 9 April 2019 23:50 (three years ago) link

Good DC movies:
The Lego Batman Movie
Batman Returns
Teen Titans Go! To The Movies
Batman (1966)
Mask Of The Phantasm, probably

OK DC movies:
Superman II: The Donner Cut, maybe

So it's the best modern live-action DC movie?

EZ Snappin, Wednesday, 10 April 2019 00:06 (three years ago) link

for sure seems plausible, though I was more saying I’d expect this to pitch at max “not actively offensive in tone, content or quality”

Haven’t seen this, but Wonder Woman was Good

It was a lot of fun, I’m very tired of mark strong as a villain though.
