Imagine if they pulled an X-Men Days of Future Past with Flashpoint Paradox..... Keep some of the same, change whatever needs to be changed, boom.I'm not too worried for the DC storylines if they want to do something like Endgame. I mean look at all the great storylines that are absolutely epic in the comics, and those are just the first one that cames in my mind :
It's only a question of if WB is really willing to build something like that or if they only want to create characters that are in the same universe but don't interact with each others.
Regardless, it'll put butts on seats.I'm still completely unsold on gunn. None of his work outside the MCU was good to me. And I only enjoyed gotg 1 and thought 2 was really bad.
I'm not sold on any these MCU directors taken off the scrap heap being notable outside of it. That brand is a machine and the director is just a cog in it.
SS2 or whatever it ends up being called needs a killer (pun not intended) song and music video. The Heathens song was a large part of the marketing for the first film.
I don't think anyone's ever going to dissect why Suicide Squad did so well. It baffles me.
The trailer had a great style to it, so much so that they tried to re-edit the movie to fit that style. If the movie had been like the trailers, it would’ve been good.
Did you check the last page?So uhh
I actually like Joe Manganiello as Deathstroke but this would be interesting nonetheless if true.
I have an ongoing thesis that the reason why that DC's movies tend to perform poorly is that a) the history of "DCU" movies and b) they are not Marvel.
Possibly related: the only other comic book movie none of them saw in theaters in recent years is the equally fantastic Into the Spider-Verse. So maybe they see those two movies as kids movies or something? I don't know.
I just feel like the trailers didn't sell the movie well at all. I really think you'd love it if you watched it.I haven't missed a comic book movie at the theater since 2012, and I love the comic book Shazam is based on (I was mad hyped around the first trailer coming out), but I haven't checked it out yet. I don't know what's exactly keeping me away. Somehow it feels small-scale (yet I watched Ant-Man and the Wasp, and I like small-scale really), and I've kind of had my fill of Billy and Freddy in all those clips and trailers already. I think it has to do with Zachary Levi honestly. I love him, his timing and way of portraying humor, but it also kind of feels like it's the same, same, same). It still got three more days here at the theater chains but it's at the smallest cinemas with only 60 seats so that's keeping me away as well. And this month I wanna check out Endgame one more time, and then Detective Pikachu (but this one doesn't even get the biggest screen in the country cause of Endgame), John Wick 3, Aladdin and Godzilla.
Shazam will turn a profit once it comes out on home media. It's box office run falls somewhere between fine and slightly underwhelming.
I said before that it looked like a family comedy in the trailers.
It won't bomb, but more monsters isn't going to draw in any more in terms of the general audience. Right in line with Kong and Godzilla 2014. $550 million.
Not necessarily. Marvel have peaked with Endgame for a while but are already taking the initiative with announcing phase 4 projects. Now is the time for Warners to start gearing up in response.
Blame the audience for Shazam’s performance then. And they should worry about making their own money and not challenge Marvel.Not necessarily. Marvel have peaked with Endgame for a while but are already taking the initiative with announcing phase 4 projects. Now is the time for Warners to start gearing up in response.
Shazam should have done a lot better and deserved to. They can’t rely on a series of unconnected films if they want to start challenging Disney. With the underperformance of brands like Harry Potter and Pokemon, WB need to double down on DC.
