Director Peter Segal Says "Man of Steel" Destroyed His Captain Marvel Film

Director Peter Segal Says "Man of Steel" Destroyed His Captain Marvel FilmSubmit Comment
While promoting "Grudge Match," director Peter Segal spoke about the "Shazam" movie he's been working on that's based on the DC Comics superhero Captain Marvel.

"'Shazam' has always lived this tortured life going against Superman," he explained. "This dates back to the 1930s. Because Captain Marvel had similar powers to Superman, the DC folks back then sued what was the most popular comic book on the stands at that time. Years later, they bought it and it became a DC property but, as long as Superman stays hot in the market place, there seems like a little bit of a crossover between the two characters."

Segal continued: "After Bryan Singer's 'Superman Returns,' it seemed like there was a moment in time where 'Shazam' was going to see the light of day. That's when you heard those stories. Now that Superman is being invigorated and going up against Batman, I think it's difficult for DC to figure out how to launch this character in the wake of Superman's resurgence."

He concluded by saying: "I've always loved 'Shazam,' but I don't know if it's going to see the light of day anytime soon. At its core, it's a lot like Superman."

How to make it against MOS?

Simple: You make it family friendly to attract the young crowd.

They made MOS dark (Whatever...yawn), so to make it different and yet fresh, the key is to attract the Billy Batson character demographic as kids/ tweens as a PG flick. You put the focus as a regular, young kid that can become this character...with the question: What would you do if you could become a superhero?

Easy...the catch is don't expect crossover with Superman, Batman, or darker/ antihero characters. It just wouldn't go. Thinking as a talentless studio hack, you got a movie, animated TV show, action figures, video games...etc- all aimed at the kiddies that as Mary Kate/Ashley noted, it's f*cking ludicrous

Uh, Captain Marvel and Shazam are two different characters. Alex is trolling his own site I see.

If they approached Captain Marvel with some humor and make it more action comedy and get a good team on it, I bet it would do considerably well. Everyone knows he's like the red-headed step-Superman. Just play off it and make it hilarious. Boom. Money.

n the Age of Ultron crossover event Janet van Dyne becomes Captain Marvel in an alternate timeline created by the death of Henry Pym.

Pym is murdered by a time-travelling Wolverine to prevent the creation of Ultron, an artificial intelligence which in a post-apocalyptic future has wiped out most of the Earth's population including most superheroes.

Following a trial in which DC Comics sued Fawcett Comics for breach of copyright, claiming Fawcett's Captain Marvel was too similar to Superman, the latter stopped publishing Captain Marvel.

In the late sixties Marvel gained the trademark "Captain Marvel" with their first series, forcing DC to call their Captain Marvel comic book Shazam!.

To retain their trademark, Marvel has had to publish a Captain Marvel title every year or two since, leading to a number of ongoing series, limited series and one-shots featuring a range of characters using the Captain Marvel alias.
