The trailer for DC Comics Shazam has been released via SDCC 2018. Thankfully, they are seemingly ditching the gloom and doom of… well essentially every DC release in the last 10 years. Zachary Levi seems to be channeling his inner 15-year-old and the Internet couldn’t be happier. Check out the trailer below and let us know what you think in the comments!
Shazam official plot synopsis:
“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).”
Shazam hits theaters April 5th, 2019.
