The Childish Hero?!?!


Somehow this kid becomes man on his own, specifically a hero in the DC Universe, finally has his own movie. Once a kid, now a man with lightning powers, this childish hero is known as Shazam.


Formally known as “Captain Marvel”, yeah I know, it’s DC not Marvel. However, they changed his name to “Shazam”, so they wouldn’t conflict with Marvel. is a fictional comic book superhero appearing in publications by the American publisher DC Comics. He is the alter ego of Billy Batson, a boy who, by speaking the magic word “SHAZAM” can transform himself into a costumed adult with the powers of superhuman strength, speed, flight and other abilities.


The 2019 Movie is Produced by New Line Cinema and distributed by Warner Bros. Pictures, directed by David F. Sandberg. The Cast of the Movie are Zachary Levi as Shazam, Asher Angel as Billy Batson(kid), Mark Strong as Dr. Thaddeus Sivana, and Jack Dylan Grazer as Freddy Freeman.


I have interviewed some students on their thoughts about the movie.


From ROTC Cadet Martin Aragon he says “I think it look really good, I think it’s gonna be so funny and entertaining.”


From ROTC Cadet Julius Rodriguez he says “Looks great and looking forward to seeing it”


From ROTC Cadet Eduardo Gonzales he says “So I haven’t watched the movie trailer, but I know the comics and I say DC did a good job directing and filming because the old DC films were always dark and this one was different and it also took place in today’s date where smartphones and laptops are made, this was a pretty good idea to do. I think the movie had much of uncanny and some were not.”


Shazam comes out on April 5th, I hope for the best of this movie, and hope it isn’t a waste of people’s money.
