The 42cast Episode 88: The Power of Shazam!

Captain Sparkle Fingers

In 2015, DC released a list of a large number of DC movies extending into 2020. Of the movies announced for 2018 or later, Shazam was the only one that was neither rescheduled nor canceled. In this episode, we take a look at the Shazam film. We discuss the Captain Marvel name controversy. We talk about the portrayal of the same character with a young actor and an adult actor. We also talk about the villainy of Mark Strong and whether the Seven Deadly Sins really measure up. We also discuss how the plot of the film worked for us and what we want to see out of a second movie.

Due to time constraints there is no five-minute controversy on this episode.

This week Mark; Mike; and newcomer, Anthony, join the cast.
