Amazing First Trailer for DCEU’s Shazam!

As promised SDCC 2018 has brought us our first trailer for Shazam! and it is AMAZING.

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).

With the DCEU mostly giving us a pallet of dark heroes, Shazam! promises to shake up the roster with Zachary Levi's Captain Marvel. He's absolutely fun for the role, and not to mention he has a fun sidekick in the form of Freddy Freeman (Jack Dylan Grazer).

Catch Shazam! in theaters April 5, 2019.
