Ultimately, Superman/Shazam! is a satisfying short, but it barely scrapes the surface of this character's potential, which is just a shame.

... a fine film, if a little stunted in scope for such a significant story, with the same high level of production values seen in earlier animated shorts release by Warner...

It was kinda short, it was very good, loved the story and the fights, too bad it was so short. Shazam and there goes Captain Marvel wow!

The only good segment out of this was the Green Arrow one, which amounted to ten minutes. The other two, Shazam and Spectre, are just ridiculous and worthless. Nothing but fighting in the Shazam segment and the Spectre segment was a mock grindhouse/noir which made no sense. They should have just produced a feature length Green Arrow and ignored the other two.

The DVD is excellent. It's a collection of shorts featuring many DC Heroes. Included is the team up of Superman and Captain Marvel battling Black Adam, Jonah Hex doing a job, Green Arrow protecting royalty, and The Specter laying down some vengeance.
The downside to this collection is that all the other shorts are featured on other DC Universe animated movies as special features. I wouldn't pay the $20 if I had the others already.
