Both Deadpool and Shazam:
- made many references to pop culture
- made fun of superhero/movie tropes
- uses old music as soundtracks
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”
This is talking about the movies not the comics. You are clearly going off topic and trying to spark some marvel vs DC crap
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.
@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.
