Man Ares will hate this movie.  Had a couple surpises in it I wasn't expecting for this movie.  And there really wasn't any Black Adam not even a mention which I think was a mistake.  The actor playing Billy wasn't really that good and probably was the worst actor of the movie.  And they made him too unlikable for me to believe the wizard would choose him.  But the wizard is obviously a poor judge of character.  You would think he would have a better way to find his replacement.  It came off as by the time he picked Billy it was a fuck it you'll have to do situation more than he was pure of heart.

That being said I rather enjoyed the movie but if your an hardcore fan you will not like what you see.  Also they have a mid and end credit scene.

I'm not super familiar with the comics so I loved it. There was an allusion to Black Adam but altoon is right, no direct mention. Movie as a whole wasn't super deep or depressing. It was just a nice fun ride with a tone similar to Spider-Man: Homecoming but even more lighthearted for the most part.

All his foster sibling from the nu 52 appear including Mary.  Question for anyone reading the new Shazam comic since he's no longer going by Captain Marvel what are the rest of the family called?  I mean Mary Marvel and Captain Marvel Jr. doesn't really make much sense now.

Yeah,I've heard glowing early reviews

Did we see the Marvel family?

If this does above 600$ million worldwide or so - maybe 7 I think we have a real DCU.

Wasn’t the Rock supposed to play Black Adam in this?

I've seen it and it's really good.  Adam is not named but is shown in a history lesson and yes Safado the Marvel family does appear.

Oh and spoilers should be in the title.

How does DC finally come out with a critical and monetary hit and not put the Rock in at least a stinger as Black Adam.

How does Shazam's power-sharing work? Never really understood.

Is he a little weaker when the rest of the family is powered up?

I heard about the post-credits scenes - looking forward to this ;D

It didn't seem to be an issue until he powered up the tiger.  But in that case Dr. Sivana said it happened because he did something wrong when he powered him up.
