DC Films 2019 : “Shazam” and “Joker” movie synopsis revealed5 min read
With Wonder Woman 1984 or WW84 shifted to 2020 , fans now have 2 DC Films to look forward to. DC Films Universe , widely unofficially regarded as the DCEU has been a complete failure to transcend the world’s finest heroes from the pages of the book to the silver screen. The inevitable failure met its end at Justice League just above a year ago , but in a way it might have been a lesson for the wise head at Warner. DC Comics and its properties has mostly brought tons of money and success to the studio up till Justice League , which is without shame the finest superhero team on this planet ; closely followed by Fantastic 4 and X-Men.
But thanks to movie magic , Avengers is now the top-tier team. A decade ago , if you have said that , I wouldn’t have bothered correcting you. But now it’s true , all of it. While I am quite happy that we are getting this heroes represented beautifully on the top screen , one can not shy away from the possibilities the really popular superheroes can bring on the table. I am happy for X-Men and Fantastic 4 , now that both are earned by a stable and successful studio ; only thing that’s remaining is Justice League.
Speaking of which , DC is not completely out of the league. Aquaman looks quite promising showing an insurmountable amount of hype in advance screening and Shazam and Joker looks good in their own respect. With 2019 nearing , we now have official synopsis of both the movies. Starting off with The Joker :
Joaquin Phoenix is getting into the iconic role of the Batman arch nemesis Joker with the character of Arthur Fleck who is slowly pushed by society (and others) to become the clown prince of crime we all know and fear. A twisted tale of insanity and happiness , the DC Film is an standalone directed by Todd Philips and will be set outside the universe. The movie takes place in Gotham in the early 80s where the Waynes are still breathing. The movie stars Zazie Beetz as a single mother and Robert De Niro as a talk show host. Have a look at the plot synopsis below :
“Drama. Joker centers around the iconic arch-nemesis and is an original, standalone story not seen before on the big screen. The exploration of Arthur Fleck (Joaquin Phoenix), a man disregarded by society, is not only a gritty character study, but also a broader cautionary tale.”
Looks like the film will have a sense of neo noir to itself with contemporary nods to Batman lore . Whatever it is , I hadn’t been more excited like this for a DC Film in years. With the darkness out of the way , it’s time for some fun.
Billy Batson is making his grand debut on the silver screen after 80 years of being originated by the power of seven gods. He is , without a doubt , the youngest of the lot and that is use to bring in a lot of innocent comedy with itself. Featuring Asher Angel as Billy and Zachary Levi as the World’s Mightiest Mortal Shazam ( previously known as Captain Marvel) , the movie thunders into theaters April 2019. Have a look at the plot synopsis below :
We all have a superhero inside us, it just takes a bit of magic to bring it out. In Billy Batson’s (Asher Angel) case, by shouting out one word—SHAZAM!—this streetwise 14-year-old foster kid can turn into the adult Super Hero Shazam (Zachary Levi), courtesy of an ancient wizard (Djimon Hounsou). Still a kid at heart—inside a ripped, godlike body—Shazam revels in this adult version of himself by doing what any teen would do with superpowers: have fun with them! Can he fly? Does he have X-ray vision? Can he shoot lightning out of his hands? Can he skip his social studies test? Shazam sets out to test the limits of his abilities with the joyful recklessness of a child. But he’ll need to master these powers quickly in order to fight the deadly forces of evil controlled by Dr. Thaddeus Sivana (Mark Strong).
