Spy Kids: Armageddon is a reboot of the the Spy Kids Franchise. Alexa Vega and Daryl Sabara, the original Spy Kids are too old to continue reprising their roles. Both are now on their 30s and Both of them have spouses and children now. Alexa is now married to Sean Covel while Daryl Sabara, is married to Meghan Trainor.
Chicken Run: Dawn of the Nugget is a sequel that is 22 years in the making. My sister got a Vegan phase after watching this movie years ago. It will make you sympathize to chickens. In a world where every animated movie is now using CGI, it is a nostalgic change to see Claymation again. Fans of the original though must watch this movie with an open mind because many of the Original actors will not be returning. Julia Sawalha and Mel Gibson will not be reprising Ginger and Rocky.
WB hasn’t always known what it’s doing with the DC universe, but one of the few times they got it right was Shazam. It was the inverse of the grimdark Snyder movies they were known for at the time: a family-oriented comedic romp about a kid who finds a way to become a superhero when shouting a magic word. He turns into a muscle-padded Zachary Levi but still has the mentality of his child self, leading to a lot of wacky moments.
Warner Bros has released what they claim will be the last trailer for Shazam. We’ve got another month to go, and it’s Warenr Bros we’re dealing with, so I’m skeptical of that claim. Don’t be surprised if another trailer pops up between April 4 and now, but for the time being, here’s the “final” one…
We have yet to see a trailer for WB’s Shazam! that we don’t love. The character with the lightning-bolt chest, played in adult form by Zachary Levi, is actually Billy Batson, a small boy who has the ability to turn into Shazam. He’s still Billy inside, and if you were a kid who could turn into a grown-up — a superhero no less — what would you do first? Billy does what we all would’ve done…..
One of the coolest things about a cinematic universe is the possibility of crossovers from various other films and characters that’s connected to it. This speaks especially to the comic book universes of Marvel and DC Comics. In fact, for Marvel, these crossovers were how the Avengers were basically formed. And for DC Comics, the crossovers played a larger part in bringing everything together for Justice League. Now though, Zachary Levi, who will play SHAZAM! in the upcoming film coming up next year wants a main Justice Leaguer to cameo in his film: Wonder Woman.
Justice League is just days away, but then, the DCEU basically takes a year off until Aquaman arrives next December. But then, in 2019, it’s coming back with a vengeance, with Wonder Woman 2, possibly Suicide Squad 2, and the live-action film debut of SHAZAM!, where we know the lead role will be Zachary Levi.
Yesterday, a major bombshell was dropped in the form of the reveal of Zachary Levi being cast as SHAZAM! in the upcoming DC/New Line film. Many were surprised that Levi got the role (as he wasn’t mentioned in the rumors surrounding the fan-favorite character). Fans were a bit mixed in regards to Levi’s casting. Some though his comedic background would play well with the boy-turned-man-via-magic character. But, there was one recurring theme that worried many…
2019 is set to potentially be a big year for the DCEU, and one of the reasons is because SHAZAM! will make his live action debut in April of that month. However, there’s been a lot of flip-flopping about what the film would be about, and who would star in it. Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson was confirmed to be Black Adam (rival of SHAZAM!) before filming and casting even began, but then, he was revealed to be in a solo film, not with his long-time rival. So, who would play Earth’s Mightiest Mortal? Well, it’s Zachary Levi.
