Zachary Levi has really beefed up.  He's unrecognizable.

Going by the poster, it seems they're going for a goofier Deadpool/Spider-Man vibe, which I think is a good idea.  He's a kid in the body of a superhero, so there should be a lot of fun involved.  It would also be a good way to distance it from Superman.
^^^Hell yes.
Your point(s) have been a hot debate point in the Shazam thread at KMC.
Some ppl just dont seem to get why this movie should be -fun-.

DC movie fans sometimes have a weird aversion to being entertained or having a few jokes sprinkled in a movie.  That's what turned people off of BvS.  It was overwrought with unnecessary angst.  Wonder Woman had a great tonal balance as they had jokes when they needed to and they got serious when they needed to.  As mediocre as Justice League was, it still had a few moments of levity that actually made me care about the DCCU version of Superman.  As for Shazam, it's about a kid who says a magic word to become a superhero.  It needs to be fun because if it was anything else, it would be cheesy as hell.

DC fans complain either way it seems, or at least thats how it seems to me.

If the Shazam/Captain Marvel movie isn't fairly light-hearted and funny, something is seriously wrong.

I'm not saying Billy Batson's story can't have serious moments and real drama. But in the end, perhaps more than any other superhero, this one is a child's fantasy.
Truten forever!
