Great design! Haven't been a big fan of the new 52 Shazam look but your design looks like a happy medium of the pre and new 52 versions.

I really like Captain Marvel's design in that movie, so long as he has the hood down. I don't even get the point of the hood, to keep his identity a secret? Just say Shazam and no one will recognize him anyway. Also, I know he's called Shazam now and I'm trying to get used to that but I've know him as Captain Marvel for so long I just call him that by reflex. I have to force myself to call him Shazam.

A good mix of classic and New 52. ...but it's missing something. Great stuff anyways!

I admit, of all the new 52 costumes, Captain Marvel's is one of the best.

Phil, do you know why/are you allowed to say what the reason behind using Shazam in JL: War over Aquaman in Origins? Don't get me wrong, I actually liked his plot line and how he was done as well as the set up in the post credits scene. Just really wondering who made the call and why.

I'm sure this has been answered somewhere by James Tucker or Jay Oliva, but basically, if you watched through the mid credits stinger at the end of the film, you may be able to guess why he was left out of this opening act.

I really don't care for Prime Earth Billy Batson's personality, but I love the design you gave him in the movie. It's really good. I miss the days when Billy acted like he did in YJ, though.

I like the style you did Captain Marvel (I know we aren't allowed to use that name for him anymore since Marvel Comics copyrighted the name, but he will always be Captain Marvel to me) in. He looks like he should actually be in one of the animated DC movies.

This is a super clean redesign of Captain Marvel, god I love it. Much better than the New 52 and Injustice variations of his outfit.

How so? It looks EXACTLY like his New 52 uniform, with the difference being that the lightning bolt is much higher up his chest.

I disagree. The New 52 design has a torso covered in needless lines with vambraces and boots that look ridiculous for the character. The belt here is also a lot quieter inside the design.

Mr. Bourassa has streamlined the essentials of what makes Captain Marvel who he is while still meeting up with the now mandated DC specs (like the hood) 
By comparison, this feels much more akin to character than the New 52.

Amen, neither of those versions have any resemblance to Captain Marvel. This one actually looks like what those 2 were meant to be, an update of the original look.

:D That's what I'm saying, it's like they didn't even try! Iconic costumes are tough, but the key (to me) is always simplicity. Less lines, less busy crap all over the suit, just tack on a theme to tie the suit together and boom... it flows.

This has the little light slits echoing all around the suit wonderfully, then the symbol glowing becomes a natural piece of the outfit. But whatever, that's my two cents ;)

Excellent work as always... But, I still think having Captain Marvel in it is dumb... Takes the whole purpose of Batman revealing himself to Green Lantern and going in to rescue superman away from the story. Captain Marvels powers too similar to superman. Aquaman was the better fit for the origin story. Really, really stupid and unnecessary tinkering with a great origin comic. As the inclusion of Billy wrecks the subtext of the teamup.

Agreed 100%
But you know as well as I do they did it because they want to push Billy under the name "Shazam" into the public eye as much as they can. It was a marketing decision made by boardroom suits not by artists and writers.

...and he'll always be Captain Marvel to me because I couldn't give a crap about publisher war copyright nonsense.

Well that's just as dumb of a reason, as the reach on these DVDS are not that big. I buy everyone of them. I love them, and I loved Young Justice... But, I think the fans lose out in the end with these choices. Again I own all the DC animated movies and I will go to target and get the stealth release one(but paying in cash). To me they should focus on the best product and let it find its audience. And I can't see how they lost the rights, seeing as Captain Marvel was more popular than superman for awhile when he was just starting out. Marvel comics had a character named that to capitalize on the popularity of the DC character... I know this character has been embroiled in law suits since his creation, but I still don't see how they lost the name. Besides how could "Shazam" tell people what his name is, without reverting to a kid, that makes no sense at all... Strange and silly name change. But, I guess thats the new 52 for you. Gotta take the good with the bad. Of which so far there has been a fair share of each.

Yes I've wondered that too "Hello Superman my name is Shazam..." *ZAP!!!* "gosh darn it!"

You're right on every point and yes, it's the fans who lose out... but as I said I don't care, he'll always be Captain Marvel to me.

Keep the faith brother, I still hope deep down that the New 52 (it's hardly that "new" any more really... yet another poor name choice eh?) is secretly just another big crisis event and it'll all revert to the pre-Flashpoint universe again someday... wishful thinking I guess.

Couldn't agree more. I loved the way the original story went, and it shouldn't have been changed like this for the movie. Why not wait until the time comes to make a Forever Evil movie to include Captain Marvel? Oh well...

Oh, and also the absolute coolest moment in the comic will not make it onto the screen now. Aquaman blinding Darksyde with his trident... That moment was epic in the comic, and now its gone. And it was a cool team moment as well, as wonder woman blinded the first eye setting up Aquaman. I just don't get the writers for this. Its really a big gaffe this whole decision, and is just too stupid. Really wish they would have thought about what replacing Aquaman meant to the film. Again it throws everything off kilter.
