What’s up fellow comic book fans! After a few weeks of rumors that DC Comics/Warner Bros. would be releasing a trailer, we had hoped it would be one of Shazam! A few weeks ago Shazam star Zachary Levi posted a new movie poster to his Instagram, also teasing a new trailer in the new year. The day has finally arrived, and I’m happy to show you the new trailer below:
Even though this is only a teaser trailer, the extra footage that we’re seeing now looks incredible. We’re apparently expecting a full trailer on Tuesday!
The Shazam cast is all sorts of incredible and includes actors like Zachary Levi, Mark Strong, Ron Cephas Jones, Asher Angel, Cooper Andrews, Jack Dylan Grazer, and many more. The film will be directed by no one other than David F. Sandberg.
Shazam! will hit theaters on April 5, 2019!
“We all have a superhero inside us, it just takes a bit of magic to bring it out. In Billy Batson’s (Angel) case, by shouting out one word—SHAZAM!—this streetwise 14-year-old foster kid can turn into the adult Super Hero Shazam (Levi), courtesy of an ancient wizard. Still a kid at heart—inside a ripped, godlike body—Shazam revels in this adult version of himself by doing what any teen would do with superpowers: have fun with them! Can he fly? Does he have X-ray vision? Can he shoot lightning out of his hands? Can he skip his social studies test? Shazam sets out to test the limits of his abilities with the joyful recklessness of a child. But he’ll need to master these powers quickly in order to fight the deadly forces of evil controlled by Dr. Thaddeus Sivana (Strong).”
