Shazam (2019 film) is basically family-friendly version of Deadpool film series?

Both Deadpool and Shazam:

  • made many references to pop culture
  • made fun of superhero/movie tropes
  • uses old music as soundtracks
  • comedy/light-hearted

Too many examples to list

But do you think so?

No it’s not. And Shazam comefirst , captain marvel is a copy of Shazam and Deadpool is a copy of deathstroke. FACTS

So before you say “they copied fox” I can say “marvel copied dc”

Who cares?

And what you are describing basically describes most modern superhero films, none of them are pretty original.

@supermanfan1938: delusional to think about it , especially when they have TLK/Hamlet 2.0 named black panther.

This is talking about the movies not the comics. You are clearly going off topic and trying to spark some marvel vs DC crap

@the_agent_of_chaos: How is Captain Marvel, a copy of Shazam? They have nothing in common other than the name!

Shazam existed decades before Deadpool was a thing. Let’s not act like the movies invented these characters, we’re on comic vine you should know better.

He is talking about the film and the current Shazam is nothing like the Shazam that existed decades earlier especially the comedic childish nature.

@the_agent_of_chaos:

I’ll raise you “Deadpool is a copy of Deathstroke” with “Deathstroke is a copy of Taskmaster”.

@tobymaguire: Shazam is a child for as long as I can remember he always has been. The movie displayed him as such just like the comics. To imply that it’s copying Deadpool is just wrong. The film closely follows Geoff Johns New-52 run which was out before the Deadpool movie.

They are comparing the movies not the comics so we can stop with the whole who copied who debate.

Back on topic, there is no comparison between the two movies. Both are comedies but have little if anything else in common. Shazam doesn't even have any fourth wall jokes.

If anything the new Harley show is the one copying Deadpool.

@tobymaguire: because Billy never got to be a kid because he had to take care of himself, Shazam allows him to act like a kid.

@army2442: Shazam’s movie is an adaptation of his New-52 storyline so why not use that for reference?

Did I miss the Thanksgiving sex scene in Shazam? Or is that a deleted scene/extra on the Blu Ray?

@lobotomisi: well Shazam has been for longer and the movie doesn’t make the carachter copied but a tone

Same as Skyfall/TDK very similar but not a copy and I love both.

@mr_shazam0920: no it’s not and the name was ripped off Shazam.

Captain marvel is an overrated and arrogant and boring carachter so is tankmaster. Atleast deadpool is something funny 😂
