The new Shazam comic by Geoff Johns also came out this week. It carries over most of the stuff we saw him reinvent for the character in the New 52 comics.

I'm hoping they stick with most of what made the character so fun. Not big on the revisionist stuff. If they find some way to fit Tawny in that will make me happy.

I just find it odd when the graphics dept. go to the effort to Photoshop out something that nobody really cares about to begin with.

I'm not a big fan of expanding the supporting cast for the Marvel Family. It's clearly Johns writing in more characters so he can get royalties in future Hollywood adaptations. I like the idea of incorporating magical worlds into the mythos, even if it feels ripped off from Harry Potter and the like.

There's also a comic with Batman's actual wang being touted as a collectors item. For non comic fans, I'm not joking.

Back on topic, this will probably be the first DC cinematic movie I'm taking my (young) kids to (though it'll probably be PG-13 and my wife will be upset)

Well, Freddy Freeman is in the trailer so we know he's in it, so there will probably be others.

Honestly it's the only DC movie I'm looking forward to right now. I'm pretty ambivalent towards Aquaman.

Re: Shazam! (2019, D: David F. Sandberg) S: Zachary Levi

HEY MISTER, HOW MUCH FOR THAT SUIT? ďEach suit costs, oh boy, upwards of a million? We have ten suits." ó That quote published in Total Film fromShazam! costume designer Leah Butler has been sparking headlines about the DC superhero movie spending $10 million JUST to make Zachary Levi look heroic.

That would be an insane allocation for a movie that has a budget in the $80 million to $90 million range.

But sources tell Heat Vision that $1 million per suit figure is wildly inflated, particularly as the New Line and Warner Bros. film is being billed as a more modestly budgeted kind of superhero pic. In fact, a source says the Shazam suit is more in the $60,000 to $70,000 range. That's about $600,000 for 10 suits, which is still noteworthy.

Yeah, I was just thinking, that sounds like the typical Hollywood PR story to get a few cheap news stories to build "awareness" of the film.

It is almost like no one can report a correct story the first time anymore regardless of what it is.

Re: Shazam! (2019, D: David F. Sandberg) S: Zachary Levi

1 million for the suit? Sounds like bullshit to me.

The last time that kind of money was spent on a suit was for the werewolf in Bad Moon. Now that suit looks like it was money well spent - and that was way back in 1996.



EDIT - Oh, and the costume budget for Tron Legacy was like 7 million dollars. But that's Tron, so....

Re: Shazam! (2019, D: David F. Sandberg) S: Zachary Levi

I predict about $250M domestic and another $500M overseas for around $750M worldwide (which, given the reported $80-90M budget will make it very profitable for Warner). I also think with the goofy tone, like Aquaman, might have a good audience in China.

at the ending of that trailer.
I'm glad DC seems to be on the upswing. Wonder Woman, Aquaman, and now hopefully Shazam!

Think this looks pretty good. It's crazy to think that a company that has the two most recognizable heroes in the world, that it's most relevant movies right now are Wonder Woman, Shazam and Aquaman.
