Holy crap that was so unexpected and amazing! Oh my God, I cannot believe how that ramped up so quickly. Batman on the hunt for information on Bane and his current role in Arkham, knowing from the Penguin that there’s something amiss with it all. But then the reveal at the end! The biggest mystery of all! Flashpoint Batman! Thomas Wayne! Is it really him?! So many questions. I’m freaking out. This is the best.
DC
This was an intensely emotional issue that finally put an intense focus on the DC Universe proper, and the importance of Superman, and the Supermen Theory that’s dominated the news in this world. The obvious interference by Dr. Manhattan, as well as the manipulation to put Superman on the side of the metahumans was well-played, and I’m genuinely interested to see where this goes next.

This is a war of ups and downs for the Legion of Doom, they lost Black Manta in Drowned Earth, and now they’ve lost the Joker. The one clearly ahead of all of them in more ways than one, he could have killed the entire Legion if he felt like it, knowing that the Batman Who Laughs is an unlike anything the Multiverse has ever seen. Now, with the inclusion of Brainiac to the Legion of Doom, things should continue to be quite interesting.
SHAZ
With the movie coming out in a few short months, one has to wonder if this new series is going to be any indication on what to expect from the film. If so, I’m definitely in for it, because the Shazam Family are some fantastic characters with rich history that is ripe for exploration, much in the same way Hawkman is being handled right now. Fortunately, that’s exactly what’s happening with the introduction of the Station, and more magical aspects of Shazam being explored.
GL
The insane aliens that Grant Morrison comes up with are so fantastic for Green Lantern that I’m not entirely sure why it took him so long to get on this character. But, here we are, and it’s ridiculous. With an old school design, the Blackstars are back, and it’s fun. Surprisingly, the story here is even moving along at a good pace, with questions being answered regularly, as we even quickly found out who is abducting planets. Given a lot of the stranger books recently, that’s quite a relief.
MM
The revival of Martian Manhunter across the DC Universe has been great. He’s such a fantastic character, and I truly missed him. His first solo book in years started off pretty strong, with dynamic art, and a story that’s going to be pretty interesting given J’onn’s police history on both planets. I love the focus and unique stories that are being told with these interesting characters lately, specifically with DC.

First Trailer for Shazam! Drops

Warner Bros. panel at SDCC was filled to the brim with trailer reveals, and one of the more unexpected of them was the first trailer release for Shazam! from director David  F. Sandberg. The trailer is a complete departure for DC with jokes, a light-hearted tone, and a likable hero in Billy Batson.

The cast includes Asher Angel (Andi Mack) as Billy Batson, Zachary Levi (Thor: The Dark World) as Shazam, Djimon Hounsou (Guardians of the Galaxy) as The Wizard, and Mark Strong (Kingsman) in the role of Super-Villain Dr. Thaddeus Sivana.

New Official Still from Shazam! Revealed

Shazam

Entertainment Weekly is continuing its massive pre-SDCC coverage by revealing yet another new still from the upcoming live-action adaptation of Shazam! We get another look at Zachary Levi in costume alongside Jack Dylan Grazer. This time we get to see the light-up lightning bolt on the heroes’ chest which does a great job of driving home the magical nature of the character.

We should be getting plenty more information on the film, including maybe even a teaser trailer this Saturday when Warner Bros. takes to Hall H in San Diego.

First Official Shazam! Image Hits

shazam

Entertainment Weekly has revealed the first official image of Zachary Levi as the title character in DC Entertainment’s upcoming Shazam! film. The image shows a transformed Billy Batson in full costume, alongside friend Freddy Freeman, played by Jack Dylan Grazer (Stephen King’s It).

The costume is inspired by several different incarnations of the character, including his golden age cape, New 52 lightning bolt and hood, and animated incarnation gauntlets. It’s quite the detailed costume, and I can’t wait to see it in motion, as it’s sure to be even better with full effects. You can hit the jump to check out the image in full.

Djimon Hounsou Joins the Cast of Shazam!

Entertainment Weekly is reporting that Djimon Hounsou (Guardians of the Galaxy) has been cast as The Wizard in DC’s Shazam! Hounsou will be replacing Ron Cephas Jones (This Is Us) after a scheduling conflict prevented Jones from taking the role on further.

The new casting is a bit of a shock, but continues the trend of great casting for the film, though Ron Cephas Jones will be missed as a fantastic choice. Djimon Hounsou will be reprising his Guardians of the Galaxy role as Korath in Marvel’s Captain Marvel which releases only a few short weeks before Shazam!

Shazam! Logo Officially Unveiled

Warner Bros. and DC Entertainment have unveiled the first official logo for the upcoming Shazam! film, hitting theaters in April 2019. Entertainment Weekly will be streaming live from the set of the film for a Q&A tomorrow afternoon, and it’s possible we could see a short trailer.

We’ve seen plenty of set photos of Zachary Levi in costume as the god-powered superhero, but we have yet to see him truly in motion. Hopefully we can get a look sooner, rather than later.

The Wrap is reporting that actor Ron Cephas Jones (Luke Cage, This is Us) is in final talks to portray the wisened Wizard, Shazam, that bestows Billy Batson with the ability to transform into the mighty warrior. Shazam is scheduled to begin filming next month and is currently slated for an April 5, 2019, release date.

The leads for the feature film include Asher Angel as a teenage Billy Batson, Zachary Levi as his mystical alter ego, Shazam, and Mark Strong as the villainous Doctor Sivana.

Shazam! Adds Jack Dylan Grazer as Freddy Freeman

The long-standing supporting cast for Shazam!, arguably just as important as the title character himself is starting to finally take its full shape. Jack Dylan Grazer (It) has been cast as Freddy Freeman according to Deadline.

Grazer’s Freddy Freeman is said to be “Batson’s best friend and the only person who knows the truth about Shazam.” DC fans will know that Freeman eventually suits up as a hero himself, taking on the mantle of Captain Marvel Jr. in the comics. Shazam! is set to hit theaters in 2019, and also stars Zachary Levi as the titular superhero, Asher Angel as Billy Batson, Mark Strong as Doctor Sivana, and Grace Fulton.
