This is bound to have a long and healthy life on home media.
Bound to how? Based on what? Media sales are increasingly dropping with streaming being on the rise. Why do you think that Home Media sales will be healthier than the release Box office or are you just saying Shazam! will see the usual and customary DVD and Blu-Ray sales with nothing extra-ordinary?
DVD rentals are down. Legal and not-exactly-legal streaming is on the rise. There doesn't seem to be a pent-up demand to run out and buy Shazam! by any demographic, more than usual. Shazam! didn't have legs and it remains to be seen even if Alita: Battle Angel will see any such a stimulus for Home Media ownership.
Shazam! will get a sequel but as a comic-book property it isn't demonstrating any real growth interest. Maybe if WB actually invested in the Marvel family they might pique some interest but otherwise Warner is going to have to offer something to get Home Media purchases to swell.
The extended "family" of Captain Marvel, which includes the Captain himself, his sister Mary (Mary Marvel) and his best friend Freddy Freeman (Captain Marvel, Jr.). All three members share similar costumes, powers and abilities.
Here is what Aquaman is doing to date:
Est. Domestic DVD Sales $8,895,367
Est. Domestic Blu-ray Sales $32,470,078
Total Est. Domestic Video Sales $41,365,445
You think Shazam! will do better than that or at least equal?
