The Shazam Trailer Says the Magic Word!

The tone of this movie should be unlike any other superhero movie we have seen before, carrying a unique narrative, and the new trailer only gets us more excited to see this clever concept on the big screen. That's wish fulfillment personified and Zachary Levi, who plays the "adult" version of the character, said that is the main appeal. With San Diego Comic-Con upon us, we'll review what's been announced and share some thoughts on what we hope to see at SDCC. As the trailer shows, Billy is totally down with his new powers-and his new age.

The movie is directed by David S. Sandberg who made Lights Out and Annabelle: Creation but rather than dark horror the footage made Shazam! look like a really light, fun, amusing and family friendly comicbook movie.

Shazam is an upcoming movie in the DC Extended Universe which follows a superhero of the same name. This movie looks like it puts fun first and foremost. Asher Angel plays the younger version while Zachary Levi fills out the super-suit and the adult-looking side of the role. Sandberg says over 100 actors went out for the part but, "When I saw his first tape, it was just flawless. Lots of adults would play a kid in an adult's body as dumb, but Levi choose to play him as enthusiastic and that made all the difference".

The footage was received very well by the audience in Hall H and in general came across as light-hearted and actually takes the piss about superhero tropes a bit too.

"Shazam!" also stars Mark Strong as the evil Dr. Thaddeus Sivana, one of Shazam's major archenemies, a brilliant-yet-selfish scientist who seeks to use his newfound telekinetic powers to enrich and empower himself as well as Djimon Hounsou, who plays the ancient wizard also named Shazam who gives Batson his powers. Can he fly? Does he have X-ray vision?

Shazam is now schedule for release April 5, 2019.
