SHAZAM! Captain Marvel to Star In Next WB Animated Short Feature

With The Spectre, Jonah Hex and Green Arrow already having had their own animated short features, talk has been building as to who would have the next one - at a bumper-sized 22 minutes long. Well, now we know - it's Captain Marvel.

Comics Continuum has revealed today Superman/ Shazam!: The Return of Black Adam will be the lead feature, on a upcoming DVD that collects all the previously named DC Showcase animated shorts, in one handy location. Now that's a pretty awesome idea!

Look for more on Superman/Shazam!: The Return of Black Adam when Comic-Con International strikes, where Bruce Timm and Alan Burnett, among others will be speaking on all things Warner Animation related.


  1. Shazam!/Captain Marvel is a good choice for a "short." (I'd love to see a CM regular animated series, I think he's a perfect character for that format)

    Let's hope Aquaman eventually gets his turn.

  2. I agree Rob (On both counts). Cap would make a great animated series - especially in the style of the DC Kids Billy Batson series.
