Discuss Shazam!

One of the most fun superhero movies I've ever seen.

Highly recommended.

I just saw it too. I liked it a lot, and thought it had heart and was a fun watch. However, my main gripe was the villain was really badly written and you can tell he was rushed since DC decided to go a different route with Black Adam. My friend asked me what I meant, and I asked him one question. Doctor Sivana is supposed to get his powers from the seven deadly sins, what part of the movie shows any depiction of that? I mean he basically has the same powers as Shazam except for the obviously cgi sin demons he can summon. Speaking of the sins, other than one scene with Envy, how is each sin unique from each other? Can you actually tell them apart?

To me it was completely obvious the script had Black Adam originally as the villain in mind, which is kind of too bad for Mark Strong who seems to keep getting stuck in horribly written generic villain roles.

Strong has been confirmed for the sequel, so knowing the character will be in it before the script is written should help give depth to it.

Just saw it myself. It was a lot of fun! I'd go see it again if I could. It will be a film that I definitely add to my collection.
