Thanks to Warner Bros Pictures here’s the first official trailer of Shazam, the upcoming live-action superhero movie directed by David F. Sandberg and starring Zachary Levi, Jack Dylan Grazer, Asher Angel, Mark Strong, Djimon Hounsou, Ross Butler, Adam Brody, and Cooper Andrews:
Next Spring if you want to save the world say the magic word!
“We all have a superhero inside us, it just takes a bit of magic to bring it out. In Billy Batson’s (Asher Angel) case, by shouting out one word — SHAZAM! — this streetwise 14-year-old foster kid can turn into the adult Super Hero Shazam (Zachary 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 (Mark Strong).”
Well, this movie adaptation of Shazam looks rather faithful to the spirit of the comic books it’s based on. And it looks awesome: Shazam is going to be a real blast!
The film will hit theaters on April 5, 2019.
