    Porn music is terrible and unnecessary. No one in the history of EVER has stopped jacking off and been like: “Let me Shazam this shit right quick.”

    @somiscellany Yeah james wan went all out on this movie. Don't mind warner bros. They were chasing a franchise that had started years ago, that was why justice league flopped hard. With movies like aquaman n shazam i think they r ready to calm down n make cool movies.

    Ugly People looks terrible. Shazam looks terrible. Overcomer looks terrible. A Dog’s Way Home looks terrible. Seeing Spider-Man Into The #SpiderVerse again and I’m still amazed by how bad these movie trailers are.

    or green lantern LMFAOOOOOOOO IM ******* WITH YALL I absolutely love Hal Jordan as GL but the movie did a TERRIBLE job at displaying his essence and the plot is just downright stupid. Also Shazam is stupid & i will not spend any money on that garbage

    This genuinely looks like a terrible film. Casting Zach Levi as Shazam looks a poor choice. Just the whole thing seems destined to flop

    @iamgeek32 Shazam looks awful. I think the issue is they rushed the justice league movie. Marvel took 4 years and 5 movies to get to the avengers. DC tried to do it in 2

    @Shazam please fix your app in @AppStore. @pandoramusic was just updated and it’s still interrupted when I open and close Shazam. My iPhone is up to date=so it’s youse guys causing the “fun” issue.

    @ErikJLarsen @richjohnston It’s just, DC DOES do fun which is why I took issue with the first part of your tweet. And if anything, from what I’ve read of Captain Marvel/Shazam, he doesn’t read like a Superman-type character to me, particularly the Geoff Johns/Gary Frank/Dale Eaglesham stories.

  • becs4216

    Dear neighbor, If I can accurately Shazam what you're listening to from my apartment, it could probably be turned down a smidge. Sincerely, I like to go to bed at 10 pm 😁

    JD Miller {Dredgen} (@JDMiller14) reported

    @blockboi_4eva @theonlytroyever That’s the problem with him the last few years, someone else is finishing things he started. Either see it through or just let someone else work on it. Hell Shazam, Legion, and JSA have been ******* for years because Johns’ was “working on them”

    *sigh* had to restore my phone to factory settings because of my SD card problem... and in the end, I had to erase everything anyways. More than my photos/vids and texts im upset that all my shazam'd songs are goneeee

  • EricKleefeld

    @ErikJLarsen They tried to title it, "Shazam! The ORIGINAL Captain Marvel," but apparently this was still a trademark problem.

  • CaseAiken
    Case Aiken (@CaseAiken) reported

    Anyway, what was interesting about the character was that it was a double down on the "youth in the body of a god" concept that #Shazam skirted. He was a 13 year old boy, so he had a very particular view of the world. He had a good heart, but was still learning how to relate.

  • GailSimone
    GAIL SIMONE (@GailSimone) reported

    Okay. I just read SHAZAM #1 by @GeoffJohns @daleeaglesham. The Marvel Family are my dream character assignment, the book I would most love to write. 15 years I have said this. Now I just want to read it. These guys KILLED on this first issue. It is downright magical.

    Amon Drake #Excelsior (@AmonDrakeHF) reported

    @P3NANCE They still have issue with how to make what Marvel is good at, i can see some hate this for reasons, sadly if we get the Wonder Woman treatment it maybe be Shazam or if they "reboot" the universe

    @TheCollector198 I wouldve preferred goyer's GLC & zack & deb's shazam/flash/aquaman flavour. Becos even tho they was producing, flash was gonna be awesome, shazam/rock/cavill was gonna throw down in shazam & goyer wouldve mos up green lantern.

  • SolidRoar
    Saud Al-Mutawa (@SolidRoar) reported

    @_ChristopherM As I was watching #Aquaman last night, I immediately realized their problems are in the quality of the scripts. Unless they decided to dumb it down during production. I realize, though, that that was before Hamada took over. I hope #Shazam proves to be better.

    explanations of staging, camerawork, graphics design, cyber security (lol), meme creation, social issues, a handful of rather dramatic body observations (😏), charting info, Shazam info, countless fancams, pictures, theories, book comparisons! I’ve learned at least—

    @nissababy2012 LMAO I just realized I replied to the wrong tweet 🙂🔫 hold down Snapchat as if you were using Shazam but have the camera pointing towards the object and then the info comes up automatically

  • JackJacksharpe5
    Jack Sharpe (@JackJacksharpe5) reported

    I put so much emphasis on Hawkman because I want more people to read this amazing book. Same as I'd like people to buy Shazam. Same as I'd like people to buy Martian Manhunter. Support these smaller characters if you like them. Hawkman's sales for issue 6 were nearly under 20k.

    You know you’re old when you go to karaoke and there are 3 songs in a row you’ve never heard. Also, you know you’re terrible at singing when Shazam can’t figure out what you’re singing at any point in the song.

  • MrGrayhold
    Grayhold (@MrGrayhold) reported

    @CarlShinyama Man, this pisses me off down to the void all over again, reminds me of the days when they announced the New 52 Shazam, that's how much it frustrates me. It's not just retcon, they pretty much are rewriting Stan Lee's works & Storylines. The lack of respect towards him......

  • OfficeSpax
    Spaxer (@OfficeSpax) reported

    My only problem with Shazam's portrayal of a kid is that theres acting like a kid and then theres acting like a present-time kid. The dancing will be outdated in a few years.. Just like the skeleton in Spyro, outdated within time.

  • BornHeel
    AJ (@BornHeel) reported

    @JesabelRaay Oh yeah, you can't beat a really good monster blockbuster. I'm a massive fanboy when it comes to DC but being honest they keep letting me down. I liked BvS, didn't like JL but loved Wonder Woman and I've got high hopes for Aquaman and Shazam. I love Star Wars &MCU but I know what

  • epickidronan
    Alex 🔥 (@epickidronan) reported

    @RunTheJewrls It is the DCEU fan base not all of them but it’s some. Shazam fanboys are terrible too and most DC directors only feed the hype to get clout and make it worse . Only dc directors that have been mature enough to not shade another studio is Patty and James.

    When people argue about the Shazam and Captain Marvel name thing, I find it to be so ridiculous. I'm not talking about people who are making jokes or poking fun, I'm talking about these people who are really serious about the frankly confusing as **** issue.

  • CJWritesThings
    CJ Enters The SpiderVerse (@CJWritesThings) reported

    I never said Shazam came out of the blue. Contrary to what you might believe, I keep a close eye on pop culture news. The issue is with the folks who think the superhero acting like a kid when his alter ego is a kid is a bad thing.

  • AV32productions
    Anthony Valdez (@AV32productions) reported

    @wickedivy MOS was shockingly bad and bvs even worse Suicide squad at least had a fun cast. Wonder woman was genuinely good. Aquaman looks ok and Shazam looks incredible. I don't hate DC I hate terrible movies

  • LetIronman
    Let's Talk Iron Man ! (@LetIronman) reported

    @DeeCeeGrayson Same my friend. Like I'm understanding on it but it is nerve wrecking considering that yes Billy is a child but if you how his powers work than he shouldn't being acting like this. Idk I put more blame on the New 52 Shazam run being the problem.

    @DrFateTalk @DCComics Sadly DC has been trying to force the Shazam name down our throats for quite awhile now. While DC cannot title a book Captain Marvel, they can still use the name inside the book he appears in.

    @tristen_just @staredcraft You chill, You are all having a fit over a concept that anyone can write and do. So not sure how you expect legal issues happening. Malibu comics made PRIME to have similarity to Shazam. It isn't something new.

    @Dave_K_Flynn I'm so bad with my comics reading, I've got trades I've not touched, issues of Mister Miracle I've not even started, I need to try harder. But Shazam is one of my favourites, so I might pick it up

    Listening to a song playing in a coffee shop that I like but the internet's too bad to Shazam it so I'm just desperately trying to write down the lyrics as I understand them as fast I can in notes to Google later, but its R&B and she's speaking really quickly and I'm really white

    @CollagingHP That sucks. Killmonger was really good. Also Shazam :D. I was a huge fan of the back up art on issue 1.
