High tier considering the fact that from trailer feats he’s already replicating exact feats from the N52

@rem: What did he do in the N52?

He'll eventually learn to useriøs his powers properly and to their full extent so he'll become a high tier over time but in his own movie he'll be pretty underwhelming

Yeah the scene where he punched that concrete wall? Happend in The N52 almost the exact same way.

some lines were taken straight out of the N52 too. On the other hand, some small Aquaman lines were straight from the N52 too but he’s nowhere near his comicbook level.

Its very hard to say. Could see him reaching that level by the end of his film. But I think he might become a high tier later on.

By the end of the movie he'll probably become high tier.

N52 Shazam is pretty umderwelming compared to superman and his P52 version. But still laughably above WODC superman. he could get N52 feats just based on interviews with the actor who plays him.

@supermanthor: I don't think so. At best I think he might be on par with Clark but not stronger.

Mid, I don’t think we’ll see anything too crazy in his first appearance.

Mid-tier for majority of movie but will show off high tier feats in the third act. Seems like they have not shown any third act stuff in trailers and promos, which is a good thing.

Off-topic: I had a thought / concern about the movie in general recently. If this movie does well and a sequel gets green-lit, won't the kid actor playing Billy eventually get too old for the role or at least not look the part at a certain point? Puberty will do that to a kid. I don't know much about Captain Marvel but I can't recall the oldest Billy has ever been save for Kingdom Come.

No idea, but I hope he's a high tier. I want to see CM+Superman+Diana vs Thor+CM+Hulk or DS Threads

With the amount of jokes I’ve seen just from the trailer he’s definitely a mid tier.

I don’t think so at all. the dude is like 16 Playing a 15 year old. I think Tom holland is in his mid 20s and he still looks young enough to play a 15 year old peter Parker. shouldnt be a problem

@rem: Good point, especially if a sequel gets fast-tracked if it does well enough.

From what Zachary Levi is saying he’s going to be Superman level. So let’s see.

If he's a mid tier the vine will consider it the worst movie ever, only feats matter.

Like in any origin film he won’t really have a clear grasp of his powers until the end. Since he’s basically a kid he’ll discover them through random accidents, and not truly be aware of what he can do until he’s pressed

MoS Superman level at best which is still pretty powerful making him a mid-high tier.

I just don't think they'll have him lift buildings or drag ships like Superman or fight on the level of DCEU Flash's speed and so Superman will have the obvious advantage of having more feats because of having more appearances.

MoS Superman is a solid high tier, tbh. Clark's best striking force feats are from MoS, lol.

OT: Only time'll tell.

Dude I’m just messing with you.

Plus, wasn’t there an image that showed Thor being bulletproof? I can’t remeber it so maybe you can post it here to debunk marvelanddcfan. Also, in avengers 1, right in loki’s entrance I remeber bullets bouncing off of Loki’s body, though it could’ve been what he was wearing that saved him.

@ourmanuel: I know you are, but a user who I shall not name isn’t joking to my knowledge, and he’s made quite a few comments about me that are very disrespectful

Yes, Thor is obviously bullet proof. His armor is, and he is as well

Loki was hit in the face by gun fire and he didn’t have a scratch from what I could see

He looked like he was gonna be performing at high tier levels from the trailer, with what looks to be pre JL Superman like speed.

@ourmanuel: I may have to make an entire thread explaining all the detailed reasons why Thor is bullet proof, because there are way too many people who actually believe Thor isn’t bullet proof

@ourmanuel: Scaling from Loki, he should be bullet proof (but I doubt he can fully tank 30mm rounds). The latter no sold a bullet back in Avengers one.

@xzone: Eh, I can see that now.
