Shazam! Will Mix Action, Comedy

John August, who is writing the script for the upcoming Shazam! movie, told the MTV movie Blog that DC comics adaptation will be an action comedy. Shazam! is "very different" from all the other "flying people in tights movies," August told the site. "It's not Spider-Man plus jokes. There's really good comic potential there."

The movie is based on the venerable comic series about 13 year old Billy Batson, who turns into an adult superhero, Captain Marvel, when he utters the magic word "Shazam." August is just about finish with his draft of the screenplay, he said.

"I knew what I was getting into," August said. "In a sense, even with a character that doesn't have the giant spotlight on him like Superman or Batman, there's a tremendously loyal fanbase who have very clear expectations about what they think a Captain Marvel movie should be. What people tend to really forget is that I'm just pushing words around on paper and doing the best job I can. But it's weird that there such a spotlight on a movie that's just now 110 pages of 12- point Courier."

I can definitely see the comic potential. I found out about the Captain Marvel movie about 3 months ago. Out of curiosity I looked on youtube to see what might come up and I got this : http://www.trekpassions.com/defun/view-video.html?id=1823 *

It's a good laugh, especially when he slaps this guy around like he's a pimp.... Very Happy

Thanks Silverraven for posting the video, and welcome to the boards. I can see some funny moments if the film was actually going to get made, but a full-blown comedy of Captain Marvel??? Just doesn't seem right to me.
