SHAZAM!, your new child-adult superhero

shazam-your-new-child-adult-superhero

Warner Bros. and New Line Cinema have released the first trailer for Shazam!, a DC Extended Universe movie which looks Deadpool fun.

Directed by David F. Sandberg (Annabelle: Creation), the movie tells the story of a 14-year-old boy named Billy who, when shouting the word “SHAZAM!”, can turn into an adult superhero with Superman like powers. Asher Angel plays the boy, while Chuck star Zachary Levi plays the adult Shazam. Jack Dylan Grazer (It) plays Billy’s best friend Freddy Freeman.

The clip introduces us to Billy Batson as he is introduced to his new foster family and school. After fighting off a couple of bullies who were picking on his new foster brother, he’s chosen by a wizard called Shazam, who tells him that if he says his name, he’ll gain superpowers. He does just that and turns into an adult superhero. You then see him telling girls he's a superhero and zapping people’s phones to charge them. Towards the end of the trailer, he finds out he’s bullet proof.

Scripted by Henry Gayden (Earth to Echo) from a story by Gayden and Darren Lemke (Goosebumps), the movie also stars Grace Fulton, Faithe Herman, Ian Chen, Jovan Armand, Cooper Andrews, and Marta Milans. Shazam! opens in theaters on April 5th.

Check out the Shazam! trailer below.

The official synopsis reads:

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).
