Captain Marvel and The Marvel Family have appeared in a movie and several television shows over the years. Cap got his start in an old Republic Pictures serial back in the 1940s. It was the Shazam! craze of the 1970s that brought him to the television screen in a live action show. Cap even spawned a televsion partner in the form of the Mighty Isis. Cap later went on to star in his own cartoon show with the rest of the Marvel Family. How's that for someone most people remember as...Shazam!?
This page features the Adventures of Captain Marvel movie serial from 1941 starring Tom Tyler, Frank Coglan. Jr., Louise Currie, and...The Scorpion. Relive those thrilling days of yesteryear with this remarkable Republic serial.
