A new trailer has been released for the next DC Comics inspired movie, SHAZAM!
Following the box office success of Aquaman, Warner Bros. will be bringing SHAZAM! to the screen as the studio continues to mine the DC Comics library for souce material. Billy Batson is a regular teenager, until he is granted the power to transform into a super hero. No LEGO DC Super Heroes sets based on the film have been announced yet, but there is still a little time before the release date for something to show up.
The new trailer for the film reveals the movie’s bad guy and gives a sense of the comedic tone it will aim for.
Here is the film’s official 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! will be released on April 5, 2019.
