Yeah, I hope they keep the aspect of Cap being a child in a god's body. That is what makes Cap unique and not another generic Superman clone. Cap should be like the Tom Hanks movie Big but in the superhero genre. Lighthearted and fun.

As long as he's a good kid in an adult body, not a surly, moody, sarcastic kid in an adult body.

^Well, Billy isn't quite a gee-whiz kid, but he also doesn't seem to be a jerk and I like that they maintain his sense of wonder and fun as Shazam.

The film stars Zachary Levi in the title role, alongside Asher Angel, Mark Strong, Jack Dylan Grazer, Grace Fulton, Faithe Herman, Ian Chen, Jovan Armand, Cooper Andrews, Rosa Vasquez and Ron Cephas Jones.

Great trailer. Looks like they really nailed the tone of the film. Cap's costumes also literally feels like it could have come straight out of the comics.

It was modern, but it struck me how right they actually got Cap's origin. It was basically the Fawcett origin in a modern 21st century setting.

It's a story about a kid who gets super powers. How dark should it get?

Yeah, I like that they're nodding to the Marvel family there.

I'm glad that his costume isn't all dark. I will go see it just for that but it does look really good.

My only reservation is that they seem to be going with the cynical, bad attitude Billy from Geoff Johns' redesign of the character. To my mind, Cap shouldn't just be fun, but also upbeat and innocent.
