It also does a good job at cast diversity. I felt it was way less white centric than most movies of the genre.
@Siphonay yeah it was very refreshing to see honestly.
also its just a really fun and lighthearted movie, unlike most superhero films these days. it had its dark moments, oh boy it did, but at the heart its just about two kids goofing around and becoming friends with superpowers in the mix
@Siphonay I was honestly really surprised by the depth of Shazam. The trailers made it look like "haha look kid in grown up body trying to do adulting BUT SUPER!".
So I ignored it initially, finally watched it recently expecting nothing from it, and ended up really liking it.
@mike I wasn’t expecting much, and in an age where trailers usually disclose too much about the movie, this one had trailers that did not do the movie’s content and themes justice at all
@Siphonay nobody knows how to sell a good movie at all.
This one was seriously lacking though. I really thought it was going to just be a really dumb comedy.
