Shazam! ★★★★

I'm pretty sure Shazam! would have taken down the Sam Raimi/Tobey Maguire Spider-Man trilogy if it had been released in the early 2000's but let's be thankful that it released a good fifteen years later than it should.
Shazam! was not only better than expected but such a blast and most importantly a light and entertaining entry into the DCU! With a fun performance by Zachary Levi and an engaging story this is a film that brings the audience back to a simpler time in the superhero genre. I am also pretty sure this was supposed to be a Thanksgiving or Christmas release given how it all revolves around Christmastime but hey Christmas in April is still a bop!
