Episode 87: Shazam!

Summer is winding down, and since we’ve been in the superhero mood lately, we thought it would be fun to take a look at a film that came out earlier this summer. Shazam! not only takes place around the holidays, but makes particularly good use of it in service of its themes of family and togetherness. It’s also a pretty damn fun movie to boot, with a positive streak a mile wide.

Why would a studio produce a movie set at Christmas, only to turn around and release it in April? Why would a wizard tell anyone they weren’t worthy of magic directly to their face? Why does one of the monsters in this movie strongly resemble Venom? We get into all of that and more!
