Trivia

Both DC Comics and Marvel Comics have a hero called Captain Marvel, whose films will release the same year. However, both are different:
  • Shazam! (2019) is a teenager who received godly powers and a superhuman form
  • Captain Marvel (2019) is a female superhero who received alien powers.


DC renamed their "Captain Marvel" to "Shazam" in 2012, due in part to Marvel holding the trademark on the name. See more »
