    Sandberg confirms the Wizard's name is still Shazam but marketing will avoid that so there's no confusion.

    Well, I guess that is the kind of confusion you get when the Wizard's name is Shazam, Billy's transformation phrase is Shazam, and his codename is also Shazam :p.

    It would be better if Billy's alter ego is Captain Marvel.

    That's what happens when you let a trademark lapse only for a rival to register it themselves. DC has only itself to blame.

    1/25: You should hear Stan Lee's explanation of Wonder Woman and Wonder Man and Power Man and Powergirl; it's funny.

    Usually when a director includes their spouse it's for a cameo or small role, though I guess she could possibly be playing a Sivana...

    Perhaps. I thought maybe Billy's mother Marilyn Batson.

    2/5: Full press release - logline, cast, and crew - now oddlyh released later in the day.

    2/10: Strong notes that while the DC films are dark but Shazam has a lot of funny moments.

    Sivana Industries logo shown.

    2/17: Some set posters for boxing in Philadelphia with a neat easter egg.

    "At the bottom of one of these posters isn’t an advertisement for Ace Chemicals."

    I think that comicbook.com doesn't need a copy editor. ;)

    Sandberg reveals Shazam's costume will be similar to the look we saw in the Justice League: War animated DTV.

    With all the other New 52 elements I would've been more surprised if they didn't go for the New 52 costume :sweat:.

    Maybe they can use the strapped cape for Power Girl...

    Edna Mode insists that the custom of capes on costumes is a big no-no. But on the Big Red Cheese it looks good.
