Episode 13 – So About that Trailer…

Holy Moley!  We’ve got an official trailer for Shazam! – seems like a great time to Shazamcast!

On this episode we’re diving into the trailer and all the issues surrounding it:

How do we explain the overwhelmingly positive response to the trailer?
What does this mean for the future of the character Captain Marvel / Shazam?
Can the film transcend the Curse of Shazam source material?

All that and more, including one particular head-scratcher coming out of the trailer, in this episode of The Shazamcast! – Earth’s Mightiest Captain Marvel Podcast!

The Shazamcast is up for #JLMay2017 – we’re looking at Alex Ross’ Justice #7 (from 2006).  Inside you’ll find Alex Ross loving on The World’s Mightiest Mortal, Hal Jordan going from As the World Turns to actual limbo, and Superman taking the best version of the JLA (sorry Firestorm!) into his Fortress of Solitude for team building and trust falls.

It’s all here in The Shazamcast‘s 12th Episode.  After you are done listening be sure to head over to the Comic Reflections podcast for the next episode in the thrilling #JLMay2017 podcast crossover event (or look below for the list of participating podcasts in order of episode number so you can catch up)!

Here’s the cover to Action Comics Annual #4, Volume 1 – Living Daylights

[“Someone who can… go head to head with Superman”] Awww yeah

It’s really inspiring the way that Superman has carried on since his right leg was amputated.

Say my name!

Pretty nice shot.

What a weird combination of Archie Comics art style and excruciating agony.

Who is this abusing Ice??

That fight gave me… Super Hives.
