    What subtle choices in Shazam by director David F. Sandberg led to it being such an entertaining wish fulfillment story for the DC cinematic universe? In a film filled with nods to Batman and Superman, what are the more secret homages to Batman v Superman, Justice League, Man of Steel, and Aquaman? Erik Voss breaks down Shazam scene by scene for all the deeper clues you may have overlooked. How is Shazam a throwback superhero story in the style of Sam Raimi's Spider-Man? How are the hero, Billy Batson, and villain, Doctor Sivana, portrayed as parallel figures throughout the film?

    What no pointing out that the replica batarang made him bleed which could also be a reference to batcleck saying “do you bleed?” To superman? Im disappointed XD

    Sivana wanted the power because he had been belittled all his life and would use it to overcome his tormenting family. Billy learned to love his family, so wouldn't take the power because he wouldn't feel he needed it

    Sivana would probably done something to his dad and brother and bullies but billy only destroyed the bullies truck (with a good reason) he didn't use them and hurt his mom so i think billy is the best option as far at would he go for the sin ball probably not dure the sins could use mom as lure but at that point besides the bullies he has no reason to accept the sins

    I always thought that Sivana was the one who messed up the bus so 1 Billy would fall into his trap and 2 because he wanted to make Billy feel guilty for using his powers in vain.

    I love how both Captain Marvel movies this year were heavily inspired by scenes of older movies and sort of recreated the scenes.

    I do not remember if I have ready mentioned this but when you are first talking about Shazam being originally named CAPTAIN MARVEL, you credit it incorrectly to be a DC COMIC book, it was not ! CAPTAIN MARVEL WAS originally owned by a big competitor company named FAWCETTE comics who through a long and contentious lawsuit DC won a copywrite infringement case in the early 1950;s which then took a strange turn when FAWCETE COMCS folded and DC ended up owning the copywrite to the character in the 1970'S then because they had won the case they also received the rights to the character, but not the trade mark (which by then MARVEL COMICS had owned) was not discovered until 20 years later.. and that is how "Captain Marvel" had been renamed SHAZAM.

    The fact that the Annabelle doll has appeared in two separate movies now is so weird... I kinda wish it becomes a running joke

    I'm ninety-nine percent sure the Mortal Kombat game they were playing was the Mortal Kombat versus DC Universe game that was released some time ago and in that video game I believe they call Shazam, Captain Marvel. It was the game where you could pick DC Superheroes to Battle Mortal Kombat characters

    I think that billy is the perfect shazam because Sivana was a called worthless little shit crybaby or something like that and Billys mom abandoned him but he didn't know that at the time

    The early acknowledgement of the name change is an extreme oversimplification. There were lawsuits and corporate shenanigans that cost Cap his name, but I guess since this video focuses on the movie, it doesn't need to be addressed deeply. Just know it wasn't a 'heroic' decision by DC to avoid confusion.
