Shazam! Not what I expected.

Shazam! Not what I expected.

I got to see Shazam! almost three weeks early thanks to one of my favorite local conventions “MomoCon”. They hosted a fan event that was first come first serve and thankfully I was there early enough to get a good seat. Now let me get this out of the way…. I’ve never been a huge fan of Shazam as I haven’t read any of the comics and have only seen him here and there watching the “Justice League” cartoon series. That being said, I went into watching this film with low expectations due to unfamiliarity and let’s be real the fact that its a DC live-action film (if you weren’t aware live-action has never been their strong suit there’s a handful of hits among a seas of misses).

Meanwhile, my hubby had briefly mentioned that he watched the crossover episode with The Flash but none of the others which further made me wonder if it was worth my time. It wasn't until Netflix sent out a notification about season one that I decided to give it a try, and after struggling to get through the first few episodes it eventually grew on me.
