New trailer tomorrow
Shazam is a meaningless IP in the current DCEU. Only reason the first one did reasonably well at the box office was because of initial interest in the character and the possibilities within the universe.
Have a hard time believing the followup will do very well in the current environment.
the first movie did well because it was good and fun. two things you can't say about many other movies in the DCEU.
It was entertaining. I admittedly despise the film adaptation of the Shazam family.
Why is it meaningless?
No one watches DC movies for the DCEU though
its not like the MCU in that aspect
People saw Shazam because it was a new and interesting character to people and Chuck Bartowski played that role extremely well
It was kinda the same thing with Black Adam
but The Rock is extremely unlikable amongst the new generation these days and he absolutely tanked that movie
Will be interesting if Shazam 2 is a box office success because Gunn and Levi are good friends IRL. And lord knows Gunn tries to cast his friends in everything he makes.
Rooker is probably already casted as Darkseid.
Rooker is a great actor, his Yondu in volume 2 is the best character in the MCU emotionally
Rooker’s awesome and has pretty much always chosen great roles, but Gunn seems like the type that will clash with the WBD execs over castings because he wants his friends in his stuff so much.
Almost the Adam Sandler of comic book movies/shows.
I haven't tried to a dive into the controversy, but Levi is apparently a crazy person that said some ridiculous stuff recently about race and vaccinations according to Twitter.
All he did was agree with someone that Phizer is an evil company or something to that effect. He didn't say anything about vaccinations in the comment I saw.
So Gunn update tomorrow plz
Sounds no different than what our board leftists say on this board everyday
Meghan with them goods
Oh, now why did you have to go and be a crazy person...
I think this was more an anti-Big Pharma argument
seeing as he is double boosted and everything
This was my take. You can be vaccinated and still think pharma companies are shitty.
Quick scroll of who he follows shows that he may not deserve the benefit of the doubt here...
I apparently fell for the Twitter thing where someone says one thing some people didn't like, and then they drag every little comment he's ever made that could be interpreted badly into it and make it seem like it all happened yesterday. My bad, Chuck.
Social Media is a cancer.
People don't need to know a person's every opinion about everything (especially a celebrity because who gives a shit) and the social pressure to expel anyone from society for having a differing opinion from the current trend of the day is exhausting.
I mean, even if Levi was anti-vaxx, the world would be so much better if he didn't have a platform to spread that to everyone on the planet. He could just have that opinion and only hurt himself. Instead he shares it, reinforcing others who might have a similar opinion, causing them to share it loudly, which stirs up the opposition, which leads to fighting, etc. In the end, no one's opinion is changed but everyone hates everyone else.
/sorry for ranting
It happens. Unfortunately that's the age we live in.
Well you can choose to just not be like that actually
Oh for sure. But I think we've all read something that someone said out of context and jumped to conclusions.
But I definitely try and take a wait and see approach these days.
Really need that Gunn update
What's he supposed to announce?
leaks maybe tonight, full reveals tomorrow
Should be the first phase of movies/shows/games etc. Wont be a lot but it will be nice to see where he’s taking it.
I’m thinking we only get the first 4 movies or so and maybe confirming Reeves Batman universe is separate. Maybe mention the Penguin show and whatever else they are working on for that universe.
People are pissed he added a cameo for his wife in the new Shazam. She’s hot so whatever.
Hot and pretty terrible actress
Seeing a lot of chatter online. I’m excited.
Think we get Gunns version of Superman for sure. You know he’s going to announce something out of nowhere also. Maybe Lobo tv show.
I thought she was pretty good in Peacemaker.
Speaking of Peacemaker I hope that show gets another season.
Way better than in Suicide Squad, but still a weak link IMO
They announced a 2nd season after the merger and after Gunn took over.
It was awhile ago. Don’t have it saved. I think it’s in this thread somewhere or the Peacemaker thread
I don’t think it’s been officially announced has it?
Apparently it’s way more than a few movies.
I don't remember seeing anything official either.
With Titans and Doom Patrol getting cancelled already I would say it looks good for Peacemaker
It was during the Discovery/HBO merger. Think Gunn, who at the time was in negotiations or not yet announced as the new head of DC sent out a tweet that Peacemaker was safe.
