Perfectly balanced, as all things should be. Thanos thanks you for your sacrifice.

Not sure if this belongs here. Maybe more horror than sci-fi but it looks great. Lots of little nods to Stephen King's many novels/stories.

That looks... bad.

I think it could be fun if they play it right. Almost make him a parody, like a PG Deadpool.

I'm open to it.

The thing is, it could be good.

Shazam is an interesting hero, hes a small kid being given a lot of power. Theres a lot of nuance available there as well as many opportunities for levity and fun at the same time.

It could also be bad, but really, Marvel only makes movies that are middling to good or just 'okay.'

I actually don't think it looks that bad. I like the non-turquoise colour palate. That alone signals a big plus for me. We should be getting a lot more info on this and Aquaman at Comic-Con.

The question becomes what's the bar for success? Beating Ant-Man and the Wasp at the box office?

How about a movie with better than a 2.5x Multiplier. Of the DC extended universe movies only Wonder Women had legs. (4x). The rest were ridiculously front loaded.

So a movie that after reviews are in still performs and people want to see should be the bar for success.
