SHAZAM! Early Reactions Say It's Fun, Heartfelt, & Hilarious; Unlike Any DC Movie Ever

On the eve of Marvel Studios launching Captain Marvel in theaters, Warner Bros. has officially lifted the social embargo for David F. Sandberg's Shazam! movie, and the early word is exceedingly positive!

Warner Bros. has officially lifted the social embargo for David F. Sandberg's Shazam!, and the early word seems to indicate the studio may have a major winner on their hands as critics describe it as fun, heartfelt and hilarious - and unlike any DC movie ever.

Sandberg's direction receives high praise and many positively liken the film to the Amblin classics from the '80s as well as Christopher Reeve's original Superman. Zachary Levi also receives high marks, with many labeling him as perfectly cast and it seems that Jack Dylan Grazer's Freddy Freeman will steal the show with his proficiency in all things superhero.

We all have a superhero inside us, it just takes a bit of magic to bring it out. In Billy Batson’s case, by shouting out one word—SHAZAM!—this streetwise 14-year-old foster kid can turn into the adult Super Hero Shazam, courtesy of an ancient wizard. Still a kid at heart—inside a ripped, godlike body—Shazam revels in this adult version of himself by doing what any teen would do with superpowers: have fun with them! Can he fly? Does he have X-ray vision? Can he shoot lightning out of his hands? Can he skip his social studies test? Shazam sets out to test the limits of his abilities with the joyful recklessness of a child. But he’ll need to master these powers quickly in order to fight the deadly forces of evil controlled by Dr. Thaddeus Sivana.
