Also you have Bayonetta and a bunch of Fire Emblem people.

@  ▲ndrusi : (17 June 2019 - 01:33 PM)

...I mean, Tales character. Probably up to/for it.

@  TheMightyMol... : (17 June 2019 - 01:26 PM)

But what if I need to kill a god? Or several of them?

@  ▲ndrusi : (17 June 2019 - 11:25 AM)

Kratos is allowed, but only the one from Tales of Symphonia

@  TheMightyMol... : (17 June 2019 - 10:56 AM)

So no Kratos?

@  ▲ndrusi : (17 June 2019 - 10:42 AM)

In any case I'd rather have another Fire Emblem character than another character from a PlayStation exclusive game who teeeeeechnically was in a spinoff.

@  ▲ndrusi : (17 June 2019 - 10:39 AM)

Kong had his name on the games first, but Mario was the protagonist first. It's debatable.

@  Rycochet : (17 June 2019 - 10:33 AM)

Wouldn't Mario be the one spun off from the Donkey Kong franchise, given that Kong was first?

@  Pennpenn : (17 June 2019 - 05:19 AM)

I would count Wario and Yoshi, but not DK (might be because I wasn't even aware DK was spun off from the Mario franchise until I was in my mid-20s, but whatever)

@  unluckiness : (17 June 2019 - 04:13 AM)

But to be fair, Corrin is the only one I particularly dislike and it's really more boredom due to their blandness as characters

@  unluckiness : (17 June 2019 - 04:09 AM)

It would depend on whether or not you count DK, Wario and Yoshi as part of the Mario franchise or separate. Scratch that, there are more Mario characters even with just the mushroom symbol people but it's a close call.

@  Pennpenn : (17 June 2019 - 02:55 AM)

You'd figure Fire Emblem would have enough characters in Smash. Kinda feels like there's more FE characters than Mario characters.

@  unluckiness : (16 June 2019 - 01:20 AM)

And for hug's sake, I hope that the new Fire Emblem's PC isn't one of the DLC

@  Sean Whitmore : (15 June 2019 - 04:11 PM)

Smash Bros could never touch a new franchise again, and I'd still have laundry lists of side characters and villains I'd love to see included.

I would unironically love Tingle in Smash.

@  Paladin : (14 June 2019 - 02:06 PM)

@  TheMightyMol... : (14 June 2019 - 01:24 PM)

@  Locoman : (14 June 2019 - 12:36 PM)

When will we get Bluster Kong in Smash?

@  unluckiness : (14 June 2019 - 08:20 AM)

The last three DLC characters are Tingle, Charles Barkley and L Tetris block with Reverse L Tetris block as an Echo fighter.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (14 June 2019 - 02:45 AM)

We really need Subzero or Scorpion in Smash. Violence aside, they are pretty big gaming icons as well.

As an open-minded heterosexual, I wouldn't mind seeing more of that.

@  Nevermore : (10 June 2019 - 05:29 AM)

Currently in the process of re-reading Kurt Busiek's Astro City. Big props for the issue featuring the "Dancing Master" and its portrayal of non-stereotypical gay characters.

@  TM2-Megatron : (10 June 2019 - 05:25 AM)

Don't phone charges often contain special rapid charge circuitry, though? The voltage might be higher too, given the selfie stick probably has a very basic battery.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (09 June 2019 - 11:28 PM)

Glad to be of assistance!

@  Telly : (09 June 2019 - 10:32 PM)

*checks selfie stick and phone charger* huh. perfect fit. thanks!

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (09 June 2019 - 09:58 PM)

I would use the USB-to-AC adapter that came with my iPhone, though I gather you must have a different brand of cell phone.

@  TM2-Megatron : (09 June 2019 - 05:42 PM)

In that case a generic adapter is probably your best bet, then. Keep in mind a lot of hotels now have plain USB outlets in rooms too, though; but I guess that's not guaranteed

@  Telly : (09 June 2019 - 05:31 PM)

yeah, i just need something small to plug into the wall. im not sure im taking my laptop on my trip later this year and i want a way to charge my stuff

@  TM2-Megatron : (09 June 2019 - 05:04 PM)

They also have wall outlets with built-in USB in addition to the two regular plugs; I installed those around my place so I have USB ports everywhere

@  TM2-Megatron : (09 June 2019 - 05:02 PM)

You might be able to get a generic adapter to use with it at Radio Shack if you know the appropriate voltages or whatever

@  TM2-Megatron : (09 June 2019 - 05:01 PM)

It came with a USB cable with no AC adapter? A lot of lower priced electronics do that, presumably assuming that USB is pretty ubiquitous

@  TM2-Megatron : (09 June 2019 - 05:00 PM)

Yeah, must be, I guess.

@  Telly : (09 June 2019 - 04:59 PM)

maybe having bluetooth has something to do with it?

@  Telly : (09 June 2019 - 04:58 PM)

the one i got has an on/off button, and came with a usb to attach to my laptop to charge it. its this one https://www.walmart....ility/432985497

@  TM2-Megatron : (09 June 2019 - 04:51 PM)

Selfie sticks have power? I thought they were to just hold the phone away from you

@  Telly : (09 June 2019 - 04:44 PM)

need some technical help.how do i charge my selfie stick without using my laptop? is there some kind of portable charger? i know it sounds like a dumb question, but i dont know very much about this stuff

@  MEDdMI : (08 June 2019 - 06:58 PM)

Different songs or overdosing don't work for me. My brain can play multiple songs at once. Best to do something else to distract me.

@  Xellos : (08 June 2019 - 05:36 PM)

Still, the worst is having the last song I hear before going into work being stuck in my head all day.

Sequel inbound.

 

https://www.thewrap....-shazam-sequel/

 

 

Downside of building a franchise around child actors- they need to immediately get to work on the next entry before everyone starts to age out of the project.

 

That's one thing I thought about this project, as they had 14 - 16 year olds play the part of Billy and friends, that's kind of old for Shazam, especially when you want to have sequels.

Yeah, they are gonna "age out" Fast. And it's not like Spider-man where you have years of material with Peter as a college student and flat out working adult to possibly draw from. Billy really needs to be a kid for the whole concept to work right.

-ZacWilliam, at that point do you move on to a different DC Property (Dial H for Hero maybe?) or do you re-cast after 2/3 films.

They could keep the basic dynamic with having him be a HS junior. But after that, yeah, the show's kinda over, it won't be a trilogy.

Maybe a spin-off with the youngest siblings?

Or by the time he starts getting to old to be "Billy", plot happens and he can't change back. I'd be just as happy to see Levi as grown up Billy in an adaptation of Kingdom Come, although that really goes against the whole "lets make this brighter" philosophy they are going with now.

You could make it make sense for a given story/continuity, but the point is, to do this loses the essence of what makes Captain Marvel/Shazam unique. He's really not the same character anymore without the instant-aging thing.

I liked the movie a lot.  As far as DCEU films goes, it's at the top.  Maybe better than Wonder Woman.

 

(There was an older couple sitting next to me who did not silence their phones.  They were very distracting during the climactic battle, so I missed a bit there.)

Saw it yesterday and loved it. They're gonna have to hurry if they want to squeeze out the stalled Black Adam movie before the next one. Unless they do the next one to introduce the character and then treat his self-titled movie as a flashback to ancient Egypt.

I missed the post-credits stinger because I had to leave the now-horrible theatre (they "upgraded" and now short people like me are no longer welcome).

Wut? How does one's height have anything to do with when you leave? Did they shut the movie off because they thought the theater was empty? :D

Overall, I really loved this movie, and I hope it performs well for DC in the long run and helps get their cinematic universe back on track. Oftentimes child actors can be annoying and ruin a film, but in this one I thought they were all pretty good. Darla was especially adorable; she reminded me a lot of my sister when she was younger.

Wut? How does one's height have anything to do with when you leave? Did they shut the movie off because they thought the theater was empty? :D

They have these new "deluxe recliner" seats that are built for Torontonians (average height of about seven feet). My feet can't reach the floor. My only options were to either sit slouched and sliding off the seat for two hours or hike myself up into the seat so that my legs stick out.

By the time the credits rolled I needed to stand up, which meant I needed to move lest I get trampled by all the other idiots immediately rushing the exits.

(They also have this new "select your seat before you see the theatre" feature, so I ended up sandwiched between a mother with children and a walking box of cigarettes.)

Cuz Mary was just smart, haha. Kept getting slothed.

I watched Shazam three times and on the third time, I counted five times when they said the s swear word. Y'know, $#!+. Or spit.

I didn't pay close attention again until Levi appeared so did I miss some swears?

You whiny spit - dad

Nice outfit, dipspit! - invisible

Spit. - lunch break Freddie

No spit! I would kill to have what you have! - Freddie

What a spithole! - Sivana on the decor

Not spit but means feces.

It's got kids for main characters and I've heard folks say it's family friendly. I'm probably being old fashioned but I still think the s word is a swear. (Like, I was already shocked when Ultra Magnus said open, damn it, open! When I first heard it). Millennials probably accept it as fine, I guess.

S word aside, the movie did have a stripper joint in it, hehe
