As you know, we’ve been discussing the film “SHAZAM!” for a few months now and today is the day that the Warner Brothers Pictures film gets released in theaters everywhere. Initially I was on the fence about this one, but the latest trailer (seen HERE) has found me being more open to the film. Let’s review the poster, premise and casting once more.

The Synopsis: Two years after Steppenwolf’s invasion, Billy Batson, a troubled 14-year-old orphan living in Philadelphia, is set up to move into a new foster home – his seventh in a row – with the Vazquez family and their other five foster kids in Fawcett City. One day, Billy gets on a subway car and finds himself transported to a different realm where an ancient wizard gives him the power to transform into a godlike adult superhero by uttering the word “Shazam!” Billy and his new foster brother Freddy Freeman must learn what Billy’s new powers are and how to use them in order to stop the villain Dr. Thaddeus Sivana from nefarious acts, with powers of his own.

Warner Brothers: “Joker” Teaser Trailer (Opening 10/2019)

Outside of the success of “Wonder Woman”, “Aquaman” and the potentially fun appeal of the “SHAZAM!” film (which opens this Friday); The DC Extended Universe is a hot mess. Films like “Man Of Steel” were moderately received and “Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice” was a ponderous effort that bore little reward while “Justice League”, well, let’s not discuss the absolute bomb that this ended up being. Resultant of this there will be offshoot films that while featuring DC Comics characters will not be connected to a properly shared universe. The first such film is “Joker” and the teaser clip was just released so let’s take a look.

The Premise: In 1981, a failed stand-up comedian, disregarded by his society, turns to a life of crime and chaos in Gotham City.

The Cast/Characters:
Joaquin Phoenix as Arthur Fleck/Joker
Robert De Niro as a talk show host
Zazie Beetz as Sophie Dumond
Bill Camp and Shea Whigham as a cops in the Gotham City Police Department
Frances Conroy as Penny Fleck
Brett Cullen as Thomas Wayne
Glenn Fleshler as a comedian
Dante Pereira-Olson as Bruce Wayne
Douglas Hodge as Alfred Pennyworth
Marc Maron as Ted Marco
Brian Tyree Henry as a nurse
Bryan Callen as a stripper
Josh Pais has been cast in an undisclosed role

PiercingMetal Thoughts: Perhaps its the absolute joy that I’m still feeling from yesterday’s “Avengers: Endgame” clip because I am more open about this film than I felt that I would be. I love The Joker, but he has barely been portrayed right on the big screen. Each actor has brought something interesting to the role but sometimes it was too extreme for what Joker is and now its time for Phoenix to show us what he is made of. This might be good but again I am not too interested in giving this the “Gotham” treatment where he existed before the Caped Crusader and that looks like what is coming in this film. It could be interesting but I might wait for the first reviews before I plunk down any cash. What did you think? Chime in down below.

Back in February, I shared a brand new clip for the upcoming Warner Brothers Pictures feature “SHAZAM!”, which was actually called “Meet SHAZAM!” and if you missed that one please click HERE. The revealed footage is a little different and I posted other posters in there that aren’t here so its worth the click. Now, with the film opening in a little less than a month comes the second Official Trailer and most probably the last before the movie opens. Sit down, relax and enjoy. I’ve once again added in the premise and casting along with some editorial opinion. Dig in.

The Synopsis: Two years after Steppenwolf’s invasion, Billy Batson, a troubled 14-year-old orphan living in Philadelphia, is set up to move into a new foster home – his seventh in a row – with the Vazquez family and their other five foster kids in Fawcett City. One day, Billy gets on a subway car and finds himself transported to a different realm where an ancient wizard gives him the power to transform into a godlike adult superhero by uttering the word “Shazam!” Billy and his new foster brother Freddy Freeman must learn what Billy’s new powers are and how to use them in order to stop the villain Dr. Thaddeus Sivana from nefarious acts, with powers of his own.

Is it possible that we’ve not gotten another clip for the “SHAZAM!” film since the Comic Con International: San Diego event? It sure does seem like it and while this latest share is called “Meet SHAZAM!” more than “Official Trailer #1” it was long enough to put in front of you. Let’s take a look. I’ve even added some posters below the premise and casting for your enjoyment.
