DC's Shazam Movie Release Date Confirmed


Shazam is coming in April 2019. GameSpot has the story.

Quote:
DC's upcoming superhero movie Shazam has an official release date. It will hit theaters on April 19, 2019, and is now the third confirmed movie on the the studio's slate together with this year's Aquaman and Wonder Woman 2, which arrives in November 2019.

The Shazam release date has been rumored for some time; DC first announced it back in 2014, but it subsequently disappeared from the schedule. Since then the studio has undergone much upheaval, with rumored films never happening and other ones cancelled, not to mention various changes of personnel behind-the-scenes.

Shazam will be directed by David F. Sandberg, who previously helmed the horror hits Annabelle: Creation and Light's Out. In October, Zachary Levi was announced in the lead role of Billy Batson. Levi is no stranger to the superhero genre--he is already part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, having played Fandral in Thor: The Dark World and Thor: Ragnarok.
Read on.

Wait, Levi is playing Batson? It Shazam? If they have the same person playing Batson as they have playing Shazam then what the heck are they thinking?

I liked Shazam, especially watching the 70s TV show growing up. He wasn't Batman or Superman, but a good alternative, lol.

Blame the Children's Television Act, implemented in 1990 but heavily enforced in 1996.

By the FCC's powers combined, we bring you Captain Planet! I didn't know about this but yeah it was obvious many shows had an agenda. Even back then i figured something was up.

I guess 5 full days of propaganda during school wasn't enough.
