    It would have been easy to do. Just have Michael Gray negotiating to buy an RV from Jackson Bostwick then have John Davey tap him on shoulder and say "I've got it from here."

    I loved the SHAZAM show in the 70's. I loved Cap Marvel's interaction in the DC universe in the 70's and 80s in comics when I was reading. I loved his early tales when I went back and read them in the 90's. I loved animated versions of him. I even loved his part in the Legends of the Superheroes special. He part in Kingdom Come is what blew my mind. I even liked the Captain Marvel serial (except the scene where he for some unknown reason gunned down some bad guys)

    I have not read comics with in him in for 20 years or more. I did not know until a month ago that DC dropped the Captain Marvel name. I was not excited to see the new movie.

    I loved it. Definitely fun with lots of stuff for every body.

    The only thing I didn't care for was that they amalgamated to of his main enemies. Gave the name on ad look of one bad guy, but the back story and powers of another.

    Did I miss cameos from Either 70's Marvel or Michael Gray? I see above others didn't find them. More importantly - no Winebago. I was looking. But maybe I missed it?

    ^That's John's glib reworking of Sivana. But the Sivana we see at the end is moving towards a more classic version and we had a flashback of Black Adam in the film.

    I thought the gold explanation from the wizard might have been Adam. When I saw it I assumed that was a set up for SHAZAM 2, but then as the film went on, I thought it was just a way of eliminating the character.

    Even if the character in the movie was Gib's rewrite - the rewrite is an amalgam

    My whole family loved the movie!

    Spoiler:


    I'm just giddy that a certain, really-small, evil character has screen time.
    Mego...Re-Mego...It's all good!

    Shazam!” which made $17 million in its third weekend to push its domestic total to $121 million and its global total to over $300 million.

    That’s a tad disappointing.

    especially considering End Game is out this week and that will crush everything at the box office for the next few weeks
