I freaking love Captain Marvel (since when was his name changed to Shazam by the way?) so it's amazing to see him in the game.

A shame I don't own anything that will play the game

I'm excited for the inevitable "grab your opponent and yell 'SHAZAM!'" move. They just have to include that.

And I had no idea about the acronym thing. That's really cool.

Also, going off on a tangent, I just watched The Dark Knight Returns (Part 1 and Part 2) and it's possibly my favorite animated thing ever. I'll have to wait until I settle down a bit before I can say for sure since I often get too excited to think clearly after these kinds of things.

I think this is a case of someone not paying attention to the source material. Shazam is supposed to be the wizard who gives Captain Marvel his powers. From my knowledge Marvel is never called Shazam himself, it's more of a catchphase than anything.

Always been my knowledge too - Shazam is just his phrase that he uses to power up (as well as the name of the wizard).

My first thought was also, "Wow, they're making the wizard playable?" Turns out, no, Captain Marvel is supposedly ALSO known as Shazam, as of 2012.

Cap. Marvel was always kinda known as Shazam, because that was the name of his comic series, but yeah... as RabidChinaGirl says, his name is now officially Shazam and that's why they don't call him Marvel in the video.

Hell, he might be in the game just so DC can make sure everyone knows he now known as Shazam and not Marvel.

You guys.You obiviously know nothing about the New 52.
Nowadays,the DC universe has been rebooted(thanks to the Flash) in the comics,now called the New 52 comics.It's an entirely new universe,and Captain Marvel is now instead called Shazam,like his "New 52" comic book.

So Marvel has its head so far up its own ass that they don't even remember the names of their characters.
Well, at least that's cleared up.
