LET'S TALK SHAZAM

Shazam is DC's next movie as we all know, whether it is a big or average or small release we don't know yet but a movie with a budget of over $150M, it isn't a small movie, it has to be huge.

Reasons Shazam Will Be A Box Office Success:

1.) The Hype:
Shazam is one if the most anticipated superhero movies of 2019, in as much from the look of things WB/DC hasn't started marketing yet, the buzz, expectations and hype for Shazam is high. This is because, this is the first time the character will be appearing in a live action movie. People wants to about him, people wants to see what he has to offer, people wants to see how he behaves and does things, people wants to see if shazam will be different from the ones in the comics, animation or games or he will be the same, people want to know how DC/WB are gonna introduce this character into the movie industry and how they want to depict him, who is Doctor siviani, who is he, what does he want, why is he the villain, why is he worthy to be Shazam's (a godlike being) villian, how will he face off against Shazam, what will lead to it and why, how will shazam stop him, will superman make a cameo appearance in Shazam and the only thing that can answer all these questions and curiosity is a Shazam movie thus the hype.

2.) Shazam Is Bringing A New Dimension To The Superhero Movie Genre Which Is Comic:
In previous times, superhero movies were known to be cartoonish well thanks to FOX for introducing matured contents into superhero movies which we've all come to love. Nobody wants a cartoonish superhero movie anymore everyone wants a matured superhero movie but Shazam is something different, a comic movie, what the hell. Yes, we have lighthearted movies E.g Deadpool, that makes us laugh our brains out but a full fletch comic or comedy movie is what we haven't seen and Shazam from the look of things according to the Trailer is bringing that to us.
So for this people want to see how a comic hero will he portrayed, what will make him different from other superheroes, how will WB/DC handle comedy, how will they present a comic superhero. Those are the questions on people's lips and the only to see or receive answers to their questions is to go see Shazam in Cinemas. Who knows Shazam might pave the way for Comic superhero movies just like wonder woman paved the way for female superhero movies.

3.) It's Gonna Be Source Of Inspiration To The Younger Generation:
Shazam is a teenager in an adult body doing what adult superheroes do, saving the world. What better way to inspire the younger generation, telling them that as kids, they can do what adults do (positive things) and even do what adults can't, it will show or tell them that they can be whatever they wanna be, it will show and tell them that they within them lies potentials which they need to utilize to shake the world, it will show and tell them that they don't have to be big to make impact, they can make impacts even in their small state. This is a movie, parents will recommend and love their children to see even if them (parents) don't like it which I doubt, for the sake of inspiration, they will love their kids to see it.

4.) It's A Film Targeted At Family And Kids:
Yes, Shazam is a movie that revolves around family and kids. A kid is the hero here and this kid is surrounded by his foster family and the way they relate with each other. So it's a film for all family, age and kid. Who doesn't want that.

5.) The Shazam Personality:
Shazam is one hell of a personality. As a matter of fact, he is one of the strongest superheroes in the DC universe, the superhero character that can match up with him in terms of super hero prowess is Superman. Yes, that's how strong and powerful. This is someone that has the power of six gods ( The Wisdom of SOLOMON , the Strength of
HERCULES[superhuman strength on par with Superman] the Stamina of
ATLAS, the Power of ZEUS [including near-invulnerability and lightning powers], the Courage of ACHILES and the Speed of MERCURY [including flight]) in him. Shazam if he utilizes his powers to the max is a super strong unstoppable force.
I know Shazam has been portrayed to be kind of weak and one that receives beat down from Wonder Woman as seen in the animated movies of Justice league: War (gosh, that wonder woman's punch to him was a heavy one likewise a brain reseter, Shazam became reasonable after that punch) and The Flashpoint Paradox. Well that because Shazam is portrayed as a naive being lacking experience and that hasn't fully understand, master and utilize his powers that's why other characters notably Wonder Woman seems Stronger than him. If Shazam becomes experienced and ultimately understands, masters and fully utilize his powers to the max, no hero including Wonder Woman except few like Superman can be at par with him in terms of Super hero/ power prowess and combat.
Apart from his prowess, he has a naughty and humourous side as well, as a matter of fact he is depicted to be the most comic super hero character in the DC Universe. This attributes of Shazam is what's gonna attract people to see Shazam because they want to see and feel him more.

6.) It's Gonna Capitalise/ Leverage On The Success Of Aquaman:
Aquaman Success has really positioned WB/DC and the DCEU at a very positive strategic point which will pave a receptive, successful, established and good platform/ path for other DCEU movies except otherwise and Shazam is going to Capitalise and Leverage on this to be Successful.

The above reasons are why Shazam will be successful at the box office well except the unpredictability of life rears up it's head again. One thing is sure, the minimum box office gross for shazam will be $500M. It might even cross the billion dollar mark, Dearie's, if Minions (a movie about stupid, comic, strange, naively smart and weird small yellow creatures) can do it, why can't Shazam do it. It still baffles me how Minions grossed over one Billion dollar. But the probability of shazam grossing over one billion is slim thanks to Avengers: End Game except they move it's release date after like a month after Avengers: End Game release.

WB/DC should move the release date of Shazam to at least a month after Avengers: End Game. This is because:
A.) To prevent it from being crushed by Avengers: End Game. You can't compare the momentum, hype, fan base, critics support and success of the Avengers franchise to that of Shazam. So if WB/DC know what they are doing, they should move that movie release date to at least one month after Avengers: End Game release.
B.) Releasing Shazam a month after Avengers: End Game which is may will place it at an advantaged point. This is because the next superhero movie which is spiderman: Far from home will be released June or July thus making Shazam the only major super hero movie before Spiderman comes calling. This means after Avengers: End Game, people will be itchy to see a superhero movie which shazam and spiderman: far from home will offer but since spidey's release date is still far off, they will have no other choice but to settle for Shazam and you no what that means. So if WB/DC are smart they will move Shazam's release date to may.

Shazam is going to be a fun movie. I will like the movie to be teenager, family centric, balanced but it's theme such as Comedy felt extensively, matured, superheroic and intense. I also want to she lots of cool, awesome, mind blowing and intense actions/ fights.

I would have love Black Adam to be the villain in Shazam because he is the exact opposite of Shazam heartily but similar in powers. Shazam is a hero, pure at heart and light hearted while Black Adam is a villain in some cases, an anti hero, dark, serious and corrupted at heart. Hus presence will bring balance to the movie i.e balance between lightheartedness and seriousness. His presence will also make Shazam serious because he will be going against a ruthless, dark and serious kind of him so to defeat such person, he has to be serious not naughty but well, we aren't going to be seeing Black Adam as the Villain in Shazam rather we will be seeing Doctor Siviani.

Reasons why Black Adam won't be the villain in Shazam has been given by WB/DC below

https://screenrant.com/black-adam-shazam-movies-dwayne-johnson/

The reason being that they want to give more screen time to Black Adam. They don't just want him to be a come and go character which is understandable beside I can't wait for a Black Adam movie, that movie will be epic. It's going to show who he is and what made him what he is. Something tell me that movie is going to be like the mummy, which is all about an ancient Egyptian powerful coming back to life in the present world.
But there is something we need to get straight here, Villains don't always last long in a franchise, series or shared universe. Their roles are come, cause havoc, be defeated by the hero and boom they are gone. If they are to last long in a franchise, series or shared universe, then they either become heroes or anti heroes or central villain or one of the central villaibs of that franchise, series or shared universe or supporting villains but if Black Adam lasting longer in the DCEU is good for business, so be it.

I heard there are gonna be cameo appearances notably that of Superman in Shazam. Well that's good but I'll love the shazam movie to be about Shazam and not him and some other superhero character. So to me, if there are gonna be cameo appearances of superheroes, it shouldn't be as supporting characters rather as a narrative or coincidental or meeting appearance of those superhero characters.

Shazam suit look great and badass. I read they spent over $1M designing that suit.
For me, I want them to make Shazam's cape a little bit longer and larger. That will make him more superheroic suitingly.

Well, that's my take on Shazam. What about you guys.

Well Shazam will be well received by critics and the general audience, it looks like the kind of movie that would. But don't expect a mighty box office rake it'd do 650-710m at best.... But that's ok and would be a win.

Nice post, but I'm surprised that Shazam cost 150 mill to produce. For one the film isn't reliant on special effects and the only thing close to A-list in that film is Mark Strong. Where's the money going to? Is it the suit. Heard it cost 1 mill dollars/suit. A film like this shouldn't go beyond 120 million dollars. My take, though I'm certain the film will make over 500 mill which is a profit for WB.

My take, though I'm certain the film will make over 500 mill which is a profit for WB.

Sandberg debunked that!, He said the whole costume process including all 10.... Adds up to a million dollars. Not per costume.


And I'm not sure thats the budget I checked and it hasn't been disclosed yet, what's your source?

As regards the suit, saw it somewhere on cinemablend.

I know, there were reports about the suit... But the director debunked them.

LET'S TALK SHAZAM

Shazam is DC's next movie as we all know, whether it is a big or average or small release we don't know yet but a movie with a budget of over $150M, it isn't a small movie, it has to be huge.

Reasons Shazam Will Be A Box Office Success:[/b]2.) [b]Shazam Is Bringing A New Dimension To The Superhero Movie Genre Which Is Comic:
In previous times, superhero movies were known to be cartoonish well thanks to FOX for introducing matured contents into superhero movies which we've all come to love. Nobody wants a cartoonish superhero movie anymore everyone wants a matured superhero movie but Shazam is something different, a comic movie, what the hell. Yes, we have lighthearted movies E.g Deadpool, that makes us laugh our brains out but a full fletch comic or comedy movie is what we haven't seen and Shazam from the look of things according to the Trailer is bringing that to us.
I just have one thing to say, Shazam would surprise people.

I actually want Shazam to perform well. He's one of the few DC characters I actually like. But knowing DC and judging from their track record, Shazam's critical success is 50% or less likely.

n0thing. But them patiently waiting for a percieved c0mpetition to fail, brings that very question to mind. Speaking of Dc's track record with critics makes me think those average Mcu films that were suspiciously given fresh scores were actually worth it.

I just read that the budget for the movie is actually 90m dollars

I'm not rooting for DC to fail. I just don't really care about any of their current upcoming movies besides Shazam.

Correct!

It's safe to say that Shazam is already a hit financially, don't know about critically.
My reason is based on the fact that all new intros since the DCEU started has made at least $700m+.

- Suicide Squad = $746.8m
- WonderWoman = $821.8m
- Aquaman = $1.038B (at the moment)

Again look at the above, each new entry topped the previous one...I will not be surprised if Shazam tops Aquaman...Its obvious people want to see other DC characters on the big screen.

I don't think it will top Aquaman, probably in the domestic B.O. Global gross will be somewhere around 700-790m give or take

Unfortunately, Shazam will never beat Aquaman's record. It is sandwiched between many bankable movies. People looked forward to Aquaman because of the anticipation built up from BVS and Justice League. Besides, Shazam isn't as popular as Aquaman. This movie will even manage to make $750 million globally!

Now that's more like it. 150 mill dollars is much for a film like Shazam.

Each of these entries were connected in terms of universe key-ins. Shazam is a totally new entrant and will only be able make more money if perhaps Henry Cavill appears as Superman.

it's all abt the pr0m0ti0n and its appeal to audiences. If it's able to prove itself in the market, it could be leggy at the Box Office. Trust me, it's going to be family friendly and centred on family. If WB can pr0m0te it that way, then anything could happen. Look at incredibles cart0on for instance.

I doubt Shazam will top Aquaman. If it even makes 700 million, I'd be surprised. I'm pegging its BO run at 500 mill and that is very profitable considering a budjet of 90 mill.
