A Rundown of the Disappointing DC Fandome

DC Fandome happened yesterday and man was it boring! Last year’s version of the digital DC Comics celebration event felt so much funner but this year’s version, broken down into four hours to reveal everything new coming to the franchise, was absolutely terrible. And it wasn’t just because the shows looked awful or the comics didn’t seem interesting. Even the content for the new movies coming next year or in 2023 seemed lacking. So yeah, it wasn’t a very fun Saturday in the DC Fandome department but I’m here to talk about what we got. So here we go.

Black Adam

I was excited for Black Adam and I still believe this movie is going to be awesome, specifically with the idea of so many incredibly powerful characters being introduced in this film like Aldris Hodge’s Hawkman, Pierce Brosnan’s Doctor Fate, Quintessa Swindell’s Cyclone, and Noah Centineo’s Atom Smasher. However, this first look compilation featuring behind-the-scenes tidbits and about 30 seconds of nothing was just…annoying.

Last year the cast of characters was already announced and yet this year we still didn’t get a full look at these actors as their characters. That just doesn’t make sense to me! It’s been a whole year and we still can’t see what Aldris Hodges looks like as Hawkman yet?!

And the first footage from the movie was 100% not that great. I get it. Dwayne Johnson was born to play Black Adam, and I actually agree with him, but for this movie to be really special I’m going to need this to be a different type of superhero movie experience.

One where we follow the story of Black Adam, an ultra-powerful villain who has to take on a team of heroes consisting of Hawkman, Cyclone, Atom Smasher, and Doctor Fate. And then, throughout the film, he gradually kills them off and ends up the surviving baddie at the end of the movie. A baddie ready to take on Shazam in, most likely, Shazam 3.

I hope that’s what this movie is all about because if it’s anything else I’m going to be royally disappointed.

Our First Look At the New Suits for ‘Shazam: Fury of the Gods’ Is Here!

Shazam! was the surprise that I wasn’t expecting in 2019. I saw the trailers, I watched the tv spots, but I didn’t think the movie was going to be that good. Then I saw its shocking 90% Rotten Tomatoes score (I think it was 92% at the time) and my family and I went to go see it in IMAX. Suffice it to say, we loved it!

And the plot twist of all the kids becoming Shazam heroes was a surprise I wasn’t expecting. We all clapped with glee in response.

Since then, I’ve watched the movie several times. In fact, I was watching Shazam! last night on TBS. It’s such a fun movie with such a lovable cast and storyline. Unsurprisingly, besides The Batman, it’s the DC Comics movie I’m most excited for and right now they’re filming.

Because the director, David F. Sandberg, understands that there will be photos of the film leaking online he went ahead and shared our first look at the new suits for our Shazam family. Here they are.

Yep, that’s an upgrade ladies and gentlemen! And in case you don’t see the difference…

‘Shazam 2’ Gets a Title

During a really fun panel featuring Zachary Levi and other members of the cast the title for the highly-anticipated sequel was announced; Shazam: Fury of the Gods.

It sounds exciting and should be a blast to watch. I really loved Shazam for its youthful energy and its unique title hero and the fact that we’ll be getting multiple Shazams this time around sounds like so much fun!

I thank you for reading and I hope you have a splendid day.
