But when the Daughters of Atlas, a vengeful trio of ancient gods, arrive on Earth in search of the magic stolen from them long ago, Billy—aka Shazam (Zachary Levi)—and his family are thrust into a battle for their superpowers, their lives, and the fate of their world.

 It’s a decent transfer with the colours particularly vibrant and though inevitably several of the features are firmly of the EPK variety the best features of the disc are those led by director David F Sandberg. Having honed his craft on several highly effective short films he made for his internet channel it led to his debut feature Lights Out. Now Sandberg is a very done to Earth Swedish director and has always been very open about how his films right from the early days have been made even pointing out mistakes on his own youtube channel and it’s what makes the scene deconstruction so enjoyable for anyone wanting to know how these big set pieces are made which comprise of so many elements including stunts. CGI, practical effects and more. His openness and willingness to reveal the secrets and even mistakes is what makes the commentary of all his features films ( as well as his early shorts) immensely enjoyable and is what lifts the disc above the average.

Fans will also enjoy the cameos that might have been missed the first time round which includes Sandberg’s wife, Michael Gray who appeared in the 70’s TV show as well as Sandberg’s own cameo where he utters a few lines in Swedish too plus the superhero  cameo that was leaked prior to the films’ release. There’s also 32 deleted scenes though none have a director’s commentary but it’s easy to see why they were dropped.
