"SHAZAM!" (Now w/ TEH ROCK - FACT!1!)

All the dirt. All the top secret stuff. Anything that has to do with the process of getting us to sit and watch something projected on the big screen.

An outsider's perspective:

I just read through the thread so I know I'm gonna catch hate (err...no, i mean DEBATE) on this, but MW's posts all those months ago sum up exactly how I feel about this project...meh.

I read AB's post about CM outselling Supes in the 1940's. If someone creates a time machine in which this film will be shown in the 1940's then great, otherwise it's wholly irrelevant. I'm certain there are CM fans out there if this thread is any indication, but if you're making Green Lantern a B or C list hero (which I think is about right) then CM is at around a "G" range in the current age. Poll people in here about CM and I think most will be where Athena and RS and I are, which is a vague familiarity with the character based on some limited exposure in comic books and a hazy memory of the cartoon. How much of CM do you think "regular people" remember? Dennis compared CM now to the X-Men prior to the first X-Men movie. That is, quite honestly, a laughable comparison.

I'm sorry if I'm sounding like a jerk or a naysayer. I love comic book movies. If they make a good one here (or release it at an opportune time ala Ghost Rider) it could do very, very well. I really hope it does, but I wouldn't count on box office numbers being driven by demand from the public for a CM movie, unless the DC limited series' blow up. It'll have to be driven by good writing, good acting, good marketing and word of mouth.

I hope this movie gets its proverbial red cheesed ass moving. I want it. I have no shame in saying this to me would be a thousand times better than last summer's Supermope. I don't want some namby pamby Superpuss who can't get over Lois.

The entire movie disappointed me greatly. If they do Captain Marvel and the Marvel family well, I'm there. Just have Cap and Black Adam throwing down in the middle of a big city, throwing cars, superpunches, etc. How hard is that??

I dunno about "G" range, Lord. Captain Marvel may not be as widely utilized in the comics these days, but I think he's at least as recognizable to mainstream audiences as Green Lantern. I'd say "B" range.

The real catch, IMO, is that most of those mainstream folks think that the character's name is Shazam. However, I think a good many people know what the magic word means and represents. If the phrase "Captain Marvel" is repeated enough times in the trailers, then Mr. and Ms. Moviegoing Sheep can be brought up to speed just fine.

If a "D" range guy like Ghost Rider can make a profit, I'd bet Captain Marvel could do just as well at the box office...presuming it's a halfway decent flick.

Isn't Captain Marvel too close to Superman, in terms of powers, personality, etc. etc.? Won't this look like a Superman clone?

The cool thing they could do with Captain Marvel is make it a kid in Superman's body (which he essentially is). Think Tom Hanks in Big, but with more spandex and capes.

The material SHOULD be comical, IMO.

Ah. I didn't realize that Captain Marvel retains Billy Batson's personality. I never read the comic book.

Close enough for DC to successfully sue Fawcett way back when...

However, the reason Captain Marvel endures (and the reason he once outsold Superman) is that "wish-fulfillment" angle.

We all know that we'll never be Superman, because we're not from Krypton. But what if you were pulled off the street one day and taken into a secret tunnel where an ancient wizard gave you superpowers? It's that sense of wonderment that pulls you in. Worked for Spider-Man, too.

SO MANY...INAPPROPRIATE JOKES

That is one way this could stand out, you're right. I'd love to see them play that angle a bit, as Marvel did with Spider-Man...ordinary kid given unbelievable powers. The Big with superpowers thing might be pretty fun. I just can't see this movie succeeding if it takes itself too seriously, but as I noted above I'm hardly an expert in CM.

Oh btw, G-level might have been an exaggeration, but I still think a lot of you guys overestimate the public's awareness of him. That's neither here nor there, though. There's tons of great stuff out there that "the public" isn't aware of, obviously.

Makes you wonder how many kids have tried to get themselves bitten by radioactive spiders. Or radioactive anything!

Was Joseph Merrick bitten by a radioactive elephant?

It's cool. Figure: If they're gonna try to teach the public about Silver Surfer, they'd might as well offer up a character who's already had a couple o' TV shows to his credit.

I'd take that over something directed by some dude who got the gig on the back of a Queen Latifah comedy and puked out by a studio that didn't care about the quality because they had A list heroes that the public were aware of.

I think now that super hero movies are now established as a viable genre in themselves, studios are looking beyond awareness of characters and are basing their choices more on the potential inherit in the characters and their powers/methods. I'm pretty sure Ghostrider wasn't made based on a massive existing fan base.

While I understand MW's comments about taking risks with lesser known characters, I really hope they don't do it with this one.

Although Captain Marvel appears to be nothing but a Superman knock-off, there are several things about him that give the character some great dramatic potential. I think any of us could easily think of a half dozen ways that a child with the ability to turn himself into what is essentially a demi-god could be a great foundation for an exciting, dramatic story.

Yeah, there are definite comic potential inherit in that, but I think all you'd really get is something that fell between Teen Wolf and The Mask. And that might be an okay film, but I'd consider it a wasted opportunity.

Instead, how about a film where you see a little kid struggling to cope the weight of responsibility of being Captain Marvel. There's all kinds of potential pitfalls and temptations for the character. Getting bullied? Say the magic words and kick their ass. Why would he ever want to change back to being a kid when he could spend all his time being the 'worlds mightiest mortal' and never have to worry about all the things we fear when we are children? And if he yeilded to that temptation, how might it corrupt him?

As others have already pointed out, he also has a great nemesis in Black Adam (and Dwayne Johnson is indeed a perfect fit). A character that's his equal in every way. A brawl between these two could be jaw dropping in its scope. The kind of fight that Matrix Revolutions tried but failed to deliver.

Ah, I'm rambling here. Funny thing is, I'm not even a huge Captain Marvel nut. Read the 4 issue mini series that spun out of Legends and then his occasional Justice League appearance, but that's about it. Oh, and Kingdom Come. And Miracleman.

Anyway, all I really wanted to say is I think this is a character with really great potential and I don't think the lack of public awareness should be a reason to lower expectations. And all the time I'm trying to justify why Captain Marvel should be taken seriously I keep thinking of burlives recent sig with 'What's that studly douche doing here?' mocking every word I write...

You've got the right idea, brother! THAT'S the movie I'd rather see.

Not too heavy-handed, of course -- a Captain Marvel movie's got to have some humor about it. I just don't want to see a shitpile of gags recycled from Sky High or Zoom.

Much as I like Gyllenhaal, I'm not very keen on this casting. I just can't see him bulking up enough to look right, but maybe he could.

My initial reaction when I saw the post was that he had been cast to play Billy...

I'd love to see a young kid play Batson and have him turn into someone like The Rock or Russel Crowe for Captain Marvel, to further sell the huge disparity between the two worlds. Get someone who can act, obviously--not just a body-builder--but someone with significant bulk.

Absolutely. I hope they aren't considering trying some sort of CGI trickery to allow the same actor to play both parts.

All the talk of Captain Marvel being a 'C' list character or worse kinda irks me. After all, wasn't Blade one of those types before he got made into a movie?

Until they put Cap in a rubber suit with nipples big enough to hang a coat on, I'm optimistic.

MAN this shit used to confuse me! I thought his name was Shazam when I was a kid, then I found out he was Captain Marvel. But then I was like "But Marvel? That's the OTHER company!" And then I found out there IS another Captain Marvel from Marvel. Mar-Vel (Kal-El anyone?). Not TOO confusing.

So was Captain "Shazam" Marvel always a DC character? What's this lawsuit that was mentioned earlier in the thread due to a Supes ripoff? And does anyone remember the old Superman arcade game? I SWEAR that if you were in two-player mode, the second player was Captain Marvel.

Wikipedia is your friend.

And yeah, I remember that red Superman in the arcade game. They never identified him as such, but my friends and I used to just call him Captain Marvel.

Except Cap doesn't have heat vision.

It appears that DC is really attempting to push the SHAZAM! property.

This is from CBR's Lying In The Gutters.

Rich Johnston wrote:2008 is going to be all Captain Marvel and Mary Marvel. DC will be pushing the character with the animated series and toys. Mary Marvel will have a starring role in "Countdown." The Jeff Smith series will get a huge promotional push when it's collected, and is just the first of a number of Captain Marvel projects with large appeal. Warner believes it can create a movie franchise based on the character, but in order to do so, they've got to get people talking the character up...

Shame they can never actually use the name of the character in projects, or the advertising of such...


It looks like the article suggesting that DC want to give this film a huge budget and what not is actually pretty accurate.

I was on the GET SMART set today. He did say what COMING SOON quoted him as saying.

We then had a private conversation about SHAZAM, and we discussed the difference between playing Black Adam and Captain Marvel.

I thought he came across as a really smart and focused guy. When I told him that the thing that makes Captain Marvel different is that he is a kid in a superhero's body, and that it's basically BIG with a cape, it's like something clicked. I don't think he'd ever heard it described like that.

The filmmakers really want him as Black Adam.

After today, I think he'd rather play Captain Marvel.

We'll see.

Oh wow. Thanks for the additional info Mori. So you were on the set for GET SMART, eh?

I love the idea of him playing Black Adam...but I am not opposed to him playing Captain Marvel either. I just think he has that dominating presence to him and that would fit so perfect with Black Adam. Then again...that smile could work well as Capt. Marvel.

Hmmmm.

Regardless, thanks for sharing!

I think the Rock could definitely work. He needs a franchise. I always enjoy watching him on screen. He's not the best actor out there (although he's much improved), but he reminds me of watch Arnold in his prime. He just has a lot of charisma.

WTF????

I thought Captain Marvel Jr. was supposed to be a teenager. Chris O'Donnell is 37 years old (or will be next month), and hasn't been able to convincingly play a teenager for about fifteen years.

My original cast idea. I still stand by this, and before anyone begins peeing a gallon of plasma, I'm not saying it's who WILL, but rather, my opinion of who I believe SHOULD play these characters.

Holy christ, that's the worst fan casting ever. Except for the Rock, it's terrible all the way around! AND outdated.

I actually wasn't as clean-shaven... :oops:

So, Brandon Molale, huh? He's sure got the look, and he seems to want the part. Check out this pic!

Wow that is totally cool. The dude may very well promote his way into the role. I would love it if he just lost himself in the role...because this may be his big chance at stardom. Let The Rock play Black Adam...gosh I love the idea of a Capt. Marvel film. It just lends itself so well to the cinematic experience. I just hope they don't play it too PG. I am not expecting Batman Begins gritty or anything, but make sure you leave the fart jokes and stuff out of the film.

I really want this film to happen.
