In a different universe, perhaps we would have gotten to see Shazam join the Justice League and fight alongside Henry Cavill’s Superman and Ben Affleck’s Batman. This movie gives us the origin story of Captain Marvel Shazam set in the same universe as Man of Steel, BvS and Justice League. Young Billy Batson is bestowed powers by a magical wizard but not given an instruction manual. What results is one of the funnier DCEU movies. What do you think of Shazam!

In Marvel’s Phase Three, a few new characters were introduced including Doctor Stephen Strange, the Sorcerer Supreme. To mainstream audiences, he was a fairly unknown character, similar to the Guardians of the Galaxy, which was a huge hit. Doctor Strange was released in November of 2016 and looked like a superhero version of Inception or The Matrix. Despite a little controversy over the casting of Tilda Swinton as The Ancient One, what we got was a solid entry in the MCU and a great introduction to Stephen Strange.
