Shazam’s film has finally been released. Many fans are looking forward to one of these DC superheroes to the big screen. Because, Shazam is included in the ranks of DC films that bring new colors in the superhero film franchise from DC. Shazam is expected to be able to follow in the footsteps of predecessor films such as Wonder Woman and Aquaman.
For those of you who have watched the Shazam movie, surely you already know about the mid-credit scene. Then, how important is the scene for the continuation of the next Shazam film? Here are 5 reviews that you should know about Shazam’s mid-credit scene.
1. Another Shazam villain, Mister Mind
If you pay attention to the initial scene when young Sivana enters the Rock of Eternity, the dimension where The Ancient Wizard, Shazam, is, you will see a caterpillar in a glass tube. This caterpillar reappeared in the mid-credit scene and spoke to Dr. Sivana who is in prison
Glancing at the comic, this talking caterpillar is known as the Mister Mind. Mister Mind is an alien caterpillar from the planet Venus. Mister Mind is one of Shazam’s enemies, has telepathic abilities and influences the minds of other creatures and high intelligence. Mister Mind speaks through the ‘voice box’ that hangs on his neck, as we saw in the film. In his comic, Mr. Mind had reached its strongest form called Hyperfly.
The presence of Mister Mind in the mid-credit scene is a clue for us if Mister Mind could become a new enemy for Shazam in the next sequel to the film.
2. Mister Mind is the leader of the villain group called Monster Society of Evil
On arrival on earth, Mr. The mind wants to invade the earth. Mr. Mind also formed a villain group called Monster Society of Evil. Long before it was owned by DC Comics, Monster Society of Evil was a property of Fawcett Comics, along with the character Shazam. At the beginning of its appearance, Monster Society of Evil was led by Mister Mind and consisted of Captain Nazi characters, Dr. Sivana, Ibac, Nippo and Mr. Banjo.
After being owned by DC Comics, Member Society of Evil membership changed like Black Adam who had entered this group. Mr. Mind and Member Society of Evil become one of the enemies of Shazam.
3. The next sequel to the film Shazam will introduce The Seven Realms
Quoting from Dr. Sivana and Mister Mind in the mid-credit scene.
“I named Gods, doctor, not the other way around. Oh, what are we going to have together! The Seven Realms are about to be ours!”
Judging from the sentence, one thing that was of concern was The Seven Realms. If you take a reference from the comic, the Seven Realms version of the film is The Seven Magiclands in the Shazam comic. The Seven Magiclands are The Earthlands (Billy and other dimensions), The Wildlands, The Gamelands, The Darklands, The Funlands, The Monsterlands, and The Rock of Eternity. If you are observant to watch it, the DC seems to have given a hint about the existence of this world. When Billy and his adopted brother were in the Rock of Eternity and tried to run away from Dr. Sivana, they found the dimension door. Eugene Choi, Billy’s foster brother, opened one of the doors containing 3 humanoid crocodiles.
This humanoid crocodile is identical to the comic version of The Wildlands where Wildlands is a world of humanoid animals that have a human-like appearance. Similar to one of the Zootopia animated films. If the DC wants to introduce Wildlands to the big screen, of course this is very interesting. Because the DC party can introduce one of the characters named Tawky Tawny, a humanoid tiger who became Shazam’s partner. Besides that, DC might be able to overhaul Mr. Mind, caterpillars that appear in the mid-credit. Not from Venus like the comic, Mr. Mind comes from Wildlands.
In addition, at the beginning of the film there were seven thrones and The Ancient Wizard, Shazam sat in one of them. If these seven thrones represent The Seven Realms, it seems like not only Billy Batson has Shazam’s magic power and is the chosen Champion representative of Earthlands. There are probably six other champions representing each of the Seven Realms.
How will DC later introduce The Seven Realms in the next Shazam film, of course it’s very much awaited guys.
