The teaser trailer was packed full of new footage for the upcoming Shazam film, one of those, I wrote about in my previous article, where you get a closer look at the Seven Deadly Sins gang, shared by David F. Sandberg on Instagram. The Annabelle director didn’t stop there, and also gave us a hint on when we could expect the new full trailer for DC’s Shazam! today. Leading up to the teaser trailer Warner Bros. published a few weeks ago, they now released a brand new full trailer! Check it out below:

David F. Sandberg is known for his work with Annabelle: Creation and directed Shazam!’s origin story. The movie stars Zachary Levi as Shazam!, along with Asher Angel as Billy Batson. Mark Strong takes on the role of Dr. Thaddeus Sivana.
“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).”
