Shazam! is the latest offering from within the DC Extended Universe, the cinematic universe where one might find Batman, Superman and Wonder Woman. However, like it’s predecessor, Aquaman, the film is less concerned about trying to the greater cinematic universe and instead focuses on a much more smaller and human story than we’re used to in these DC films. Shazam! is all the better for … Continue reading ‘Shazam!’ Review-ScreenHub Entertainment

I myself couldn’t even finish the film, despite initially being excited to see the ensemble piece starring Will Smith, Margot Robbie and Jared Leto as the Joker. But the film made a killing at the box office thanks to its impressive marketing campaign that showcased style over substance. Now, one of the most divisive and unusual aspects of that film is getting his own standalone film.
