I’d argue that DC has had an opportunity to set itself aside from Marvel movies as the more “serious big brother” – if DCTV has shown us anything is that with Arrowverse you can have the serious melodrama of Arrow, the lightness of Supergirl and the wacky progressive young at heart Legends all in one universe all together.
Zach Snyder bless him has a style and it worked in Watchmen but then not so much in Suckerpunch but it sets a visual tone distinct from Disney. I’m a Suicide Squad apologist and have watched it many times over- It’s sexy dark, fynny, sly, witty and full of action with an FU attitude.
Shazam on the other-hand…
Looks like the love child of Bananna Man and Superted ( there is some classic BBC for you ) Zachary Levi seems to be channeling the immaturity without any of charm, swagger and confident cockyness that comes with being Shazam. I would have preffered someone more like Dean Kane or Antonio Banderas, someone a bit older, seasoned, square jawed and charasmatic took on the role. It seems forced and his costume looks horrible tbh like someone took a street sign to his chest.
It’s Spiderman goofy in a way it shouldn’t be for such an austeer character 😕😢
