Warner Bros. and New Line Cinema have revealed a new Shazam! trailer for the upcoming DC Extended Universe film. The 2-minute clip showcases Billy Batson, who has become the superhero Shazam, continuing to discover his superpowers with his friend Freddy.
The film is directed by David F. Sandberg (Annabelle: Creation) and tells the story of a 14-year-old boy named Billy who, when he shouts the word “SHAZAM!”, can turn into an adult superhero. Asher Angel plays the boy, while ‘Chuck’ star Zachary Levi plays the adult Shazam. ‘It’ breakout Jack Dylan Grazer plays Billy’s best friend Freddy Freeman. The film is firmly set in the DCEU, but stands in contrast to Batman v Superman and Man of Steel with a fun and “family-centric” tone. Shazam! opens in theaters on April 5th.
