Behold the Sequel Shazam Family!

Shazam! 2: Fury of the Gods is currently filming, and director David F. Sanberg has decided he’s not going to let set leaks ruin all the big, cool reveals of the new movie. Specifically, the redesigned costumes of the Shazam family! Behold the crew!

As others have pointed out, only the ladies are showing more skin

Everyone looks good! The family was one of the best parts of the first film, so I’m glad to see they’re all coming back. And the costumes look dope. Here’s hoping the sequel is pretty fun!

Shame it won’t come out until June 2023. That’s two whole years away!

Get Hyped for Them There Marvel Movies!

It being a random Monday, Marvel has released a sizzle reel trailer to show off their awesomeness and reveal some upcoming dates for new movies. Obviously this is a ploy to get us all to go back to movie theaters…and it works like a charm!

This sizzle reel also features the first footage from The Eternals, which comes out this November. We’ve also got the first logos for Black Panther: Wakanda Forever and The Marvels, the sequels to Black Panther and Captain Marvel respectively.

So yeah, big freakin’ deal, I’d say! Trailer looks great! Marvel has never skimped on those. I’m excited for all the upcoming movies, and I’m already back in the theaters, so you best believe I’ll be seeing all of these upcoming movies on the big screen.

It’s gonna be a busy couple of months. We’ve got Black Widow, Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings, The Eternals and Spider-Man: Far From Home all coming out in the back half of this year. Of 2021!

And next year, we’ve got Doctor Strange and the Multiverse of Madness, Thor: Love and Thunder, Black Panther: Wakanda Forever and The Marvels!

Then, so far, we’ve got Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania and Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 for 2023.

Should be a good couple of years!

There’s Going to be a New LEGO Helicarrier for Me to Purchase!

I have been fairly good this quarantine in that I haven’t splurged on a bunch of expensive LEGO just to pass the time. I did buy a couple of sets, but I waited at least a month! Well it looks like the horizon has plenty in store for an old sap like me.

There’s going to be a new, smaller LEGO Avengers helicarrier!

LEGO Helicarrier New 01

Why yes, that is a mini, buildable MODOK!

It looks a little awkward, having to shrink down to a more manageable size. But it still looks like a beauty worthy of building.

The set isn’t available yet, but you can set a bookmark and check out some more pictures on its LEGO webpage. The $119 price tag isn’t too bad. Between this set and the upcoming Razor Crest from The Mandalorian, I’m going to be down about $250 in the near future.

More excitedly, this new helicarrier is far more manageable than the previous LEGO helicarrier, which was a monstrous beast for $350. I never did splurge on that one.

Avengers: Endgame is Here!

Avengers: Endgame arrives in theaters today and I’ve got my ticket! I’ll be showing up at least an hour in advance at my local theater to ensure I get one of the good, comfy, reclining seats. So it’s gonna be a long day, with a really rewarding end!

To get us all in the Avengers spirit, here’s a bunch of Avengers videos I’ve been holding onto for a couple weeks! Like this sweet retrospective.

Or How Captain Marvel Should Have Ended by the HISHE people!

Avengers: Endgame is going to rock my socks off, hopefully! Reviews have been stellar, all past movies have been perfect. I feel like I’m in a good place here, people.

I hope you enjoy it too!

The 6 Craziest Members of the Shazam! Family (the Shazamily!)

Shazam! comes out this weekend and I’m mildly excited. That’s a good enough reason to make a fun internet list, right? I’ve just never really cared about the Shazam character, I’m only mildly interested in all these DC superhero movies, and I still can’t buy Zachary Levi in the role. Hopefully all of that will change once I see the actual film!

Shazamily List 01

The box says “Cola”, so he didn’t even buy beer

And at least I can get a fun blog listicle about it. When Captain Marvel came out, I did a funny list of all the best Captain Marvels in comics. So how about a funny list of all the best Shazams in comics? Because Shazam is one of those characters with a big, weird comic book family. They were once known as the Marvel Family, but how has the phrase “Shazamily” not caught on?

The character very nearly predates World War II, and being around that long means there have been a lot of weird stories over the years. So let’s check out all of the craziest people who have been given Shazam powers over the decades! Or close to it!
