Greetings, comic book fiends,
Long before Wonder Woman, Spider-Man, and the Guardians of the Galaxy battled for top of the summer box office, audience cheered to the weekly episodes of the Adventures of Captain Marvel (1941). This classic Republic serial, considered by many as the greatest of all the chapterplays, will make its Blu-ray debut on September 19th from Kino Lorber Studio Classics.
Directed by John English and William Witney, Adventures of Captain Marvel tells of how a young Billy Batson receives the power to transform into “The World’s Mightiest Mortal” to do battle with some guy in a hood who calls himself the Scorpion. SHAZAM!!!
