DC didn't let the trademark lapse. It was Fawcett who did. By the time DC picked up the rights to the character, Marvel had trademarked their Captain Marvel.

But in a roundabout way, DC suing Fawcett did make them dump the character. So it can be blamed on DC.

The circle of DVDtalk's attitude about DC is complete!

Well to be fair, the DCEU sucks and is a waste of time.

This kind of just includes the Snyderverse, though. If Snyder were anywhere near this one I'd be wary too.

But he's not, yet folks are still wary. So yes, the DCEU sucks and is a waste of time.

SHAZAM! SOCIAL REACTIONS: A HILARIOUS, HEARTFELT SUPERHERO VERSION OF BIG

Bad news though: no onslaught of pandering "cool, hip" jokes. Sorry.

As a shameless Marvel fanboy, I'm really excited about this movie, as is my 9 year old daughter. It looks like a lot of fun.

FYI

Tickets are on sale now.

There is also an early access showing on Saturday the 23rd. The early access showing isn't showing up on A-List or Atom Tickets yet. However, it's showing up on Fandango.

It probably won't be because it seems to be sponsored by Fandango.

Booked mine for the 4pm using A-List.

Got mine for 7pm that day through Fandango. Also redeemed some comics on Comixology with that purchase. Looks like it's a Fandango exclusive.

Yeah it's not showing up on the AMC and Regal sites. So I'm wondering if these tickets can only be purchased through Fandango.

Yes, it's specifically called a Fandango Exclusive. Same how Aquaman Prime preview was only through Atom.

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

Yeah I know...

I just got the email from Fandango saying that and Deadline posted the article today saying that.

https://deadline.com/2019/03/shazam-...ew-1202574896/

Debating if I want to see it early and spend money or wait 2 more weeks for A-List.

It's $11.70 to catch the 4pm show on the 23rd in my area plus the Fandango surcharge.

I didn't pay for it. You can use A-List through Fandango. That is what I did. I usually always do because I earn Fandango points and can use them on digital rentals.

Oh I did not know that. Thanks. I will check that out.

Edit: I looked back at the AMC thread and I did post the news about Fandango and Atom being able to be used with A-List last Fall. I guess I totally forgot about it.

I have to say that they look fantastic in HD. My DVD release looks like mud compared to these. I was very impressed and surprised! If you love this cheesy show and grew up watching it every Saturday as I did, check it out. I would love to see them give Isis the same treatment.

All three seasons are available as well.
