Into the Shazamiverse!

The Comic Con trailers are coming hard and fast today! I’ll share as many as I feel like over the next couple of days. I don’t care about every trailer, people! It’s my weekend! Anyway, I definitely wanted to share the new trailers for Shazam: Fury of the Gods and Black Adam. One looks good, the other looks as boring as it’s every been.

I really enjoyed the first Shazam movie and this sequel looks like fun. It also looks a little directionless. Like, why isn’t it a crossover with Black Adam? Is it just going to be another Shazam adventure? Also, how the hell are these two movies not some kind of crossover? Fans enjoy crossovers, and these two characters are from the same gorram series! Why is Warner Bros not going for full movie synergy with these two films?

Anyway, Shazam: Fury of the Gods looks fun. I especially hope to see a lot of attention paid to the family. This movie comes out at Christmastime.

Then we’ve got Black Adam, which comes out in late October. And this second trailer is just as useless as the first.

I’m just not buying what this movie is selling, and all it’s selling is the Rock. There don’t seem to be any really interesting twists or gimmicks to Black Adam. He’s just a generic superhero type, and they’re trying to play him off as some sort of uber badass or something. It feels forced and hokey. And the Rock isn’t selling it. His line about the “hierarchy of power” changing in the DC Universe was an instant meme of mockery, and nothing this movie has shown us since has changed that for me.

This one is gonna be a Morbius-level dud.
