Shazam! Trailer Arrives Taking the DC Universe in a Wild New Direction

Shazam! is the first of the DC Comics extended universe films to arrive next year, with Wonder Woman 1984 expected to hit theaters on November 1, 2019. This movie looks charming and sort of old-fashioned compared to most DC Comics superhero movies, to which it is slightly connected.

Shazam! stars Zachary Levi in the form of adult Shazam.

At San Diego Comic-Con, the two-hour Warner Bros. presentation included the Shazam teaser trailer (which was a surprise, given that the main expectation was for footage at this date). "This is 14-year-old me wanting to put on spandex and a cape and fly around.I get to bring to life a character that I know is near and dear to a lot of people".

Spieth missed more than half of his fairways in the second round, but he was able to play his approach shots from the proper side of the hole.

"There are very few characters that are just super-stoked to have powers and have the responsibility that comes with that power", Levi said. "But Billy Batson is jazzed to have those powers". DC films are finally learning to embrace the ridiculousness and awkwardness of being a superhero. 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!

The cast includes Asher Angel (Andi Mack) as Billy Batson, Djimon Hounsou (Guardians of the Galaxy) as The Wizard, and Mark Strong (Kingsman) in the role of Super-Villain Dr. Thaddeus Sivana. It breakout Jack Dylan Grazer plays Billy's best friend Freddy Freeman. Can he shoot lightning out of his hands?

Set to hit theaters on April. 5, 2019, Shazam! follows the story of 14-year-old foster kid Billy Batson, who can turn into an adult superhero after he bumps into an ancient wizard. Shazam sets out to test the limits of his abilities with the joyful recklessness of a child.
