Social Embargo and reviews very different.

Initial social embargo was even positive for BvsS.

Clearly they wanted some DC in the news over Captain Marvels opening.

That being said it looks awesome!

    Shazam looks fucking terrible, probably will see it just to support the DC brand but I have no real interest in it whatsoever.

    I don't know the character too well but isn't that what Shazam! is supposed to be - goofy?

    Perhaps, haven’t read a ton of comics with him, but if that’s the case then it’s not the type of character that appeals to me.

    Though I will day the way that he was utilized in Kingdom Come is fantastic, but that’s my favorite comic book of all time.

    Well, the measure of good and bad when it comes to art is purely subjective. But even using something like rotten tomatoes score or general consensus, you’re wrong as well. Just pointing it out.

    'Flash' Shocker: Ezra Miller Writing Script in Bid to Stay On as Star (Exclusive)
    But wait, that's not all: The actor is writing the script with superstar comics author Grant Morrison.

    Quote:
    In a bid to keep himself involved as the Scarlet Speedster, actor Ezra Miller is taking a hands-on approach to The Flash.

    Miller is taking a stab at writing the script for the Warner Bros. project, The Hollywood Reporter has learned. He has teamed up with Grant Morrison, the acclaimed comics author, to pen a draft that could determine if he stays on as star, playing crimefighter Barry Allen.

    The development has bubbled up from a clash of creative visions. John Francis Daley and Jonathan Goldstein, who have been on board the project since January 2018, have a light-hearted approach to the material (and even hail from that sort of background, with credits like Spider-Man: Homecoming and Game Night). And, as sources note, that is the general track favored by Warners, which scored a billion-dollar hit with Aquaman by going the fun spectacle route and is seeing strong buzz on Shazam!, which is wearing its “superheroics is fun” on its sleeve .

    Miller is said to want a darker take on the material.

    The two sides have been working on compromises since last year but Miller took the initiative to tackle the story himself. He partnered with Morrison, with Warners hiring the two to script their take. It is a rare move for an actor to be so invested in a superhero project that they switch hats, but Miller sees himself as deeply committed to the character.

    Despite its namesake, Flash has been anything but in its journey to the silver screen, going through several directors and writers. Miller, however, has been a constant, having been first cast by filmmaker Zack Snyder for the role in 2016’s Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and embracing the role fully in Justice League.

    The script could be submitted to the studio as early as next week.

    But there could be a lot riding on it. If Warners chooses against Miller's take on the hero, the actor could part ways with the project. Additionally, and fittingly for a hero who races to beat the clock, there is a countdown scenario here as well: according to one insider, Miller’s holding deal on Flash expires May.

    Despite the clashes on Flash, Miller remains a presence on the Warners lot. He has played a key character in the studio’s Fantastic Beasts movies and is expected to shoot the third installment at the end of this year.

    Shazam reviews are out and overwhelmingly positive. I've been really looking forward to seeing this one and am glad to see it is being well received. Levi is receiving lots of praise and sounds like the perfect fit for the role. Maybe DC is finally picking up steam on their movies.

    Not sure if Joaquin Phoenix is acting or was just caught on film for 2 hours but it looks good.

    I was practically salivating over the fact that we were getting a trailer today based on the positive early reactions I was reading on Twitter last night.

    AND THIS DID NOT DISAPPOINT!!!

    Joaquin Phoenix is so damn awesome, as is the first poster for the movie.

    We're generally aligned...this looks like a massive meh to me. Joker is a guy with mommy issues now and we're supposed to feel bad for him for an act until he goes nuts.

    I know it's technically standalone, but it feels like it could play as an origin story for Ledger's Joker.

    Something I neither need or want. The desire for everyone to have a "and here's where I became _____" is a terrible trend. If this is awesome I'll eat crow JP is a great actor, so I'm sure it'll be well acted and competently directed.

    Yeah I mean we all know where it's ending up, if it's nothing but a psychological study and a showcase of a great actor completely breaking as a human being and going insane, well, I'm sure I'll enjoy that a lot. Anything neat they do plot-wise that might surprise me is just gravy.

    Looks fine....finally going to see Aquaman in the next week or so. Shazam looks good but probably won't get me to the theater.

    Shazam might be the first DC movie that I can convince my wife to see in theaters with me. She loves her some Zachary Levi and also likes lighter movies, which is why I can get her to go to any Marvel movie with me. DC I usually have to find a buddy to go with after the kids go to bed or wait for rental.

    I also have yet to see Aquaman.

    Same - funny how well it did. I don't know a single person that has seen it. Inclusive of a lot of you fine people.

    I saw Aquaman at an advanced screening. I liked it, it was good, but there was nothing that really pulled me in or has wanted me to watch it again. Kind of had the same reaction to Wonder Woman, though I think WW was overall a better movie-- would've been great had they avoided that final cliche battle.

    reminds me of guardians of the galaxy or Ant Man, I'm blown away it's even getting a movie in the first place, looks like it will be goofy but that is probably the best way to do such a movie.
