Warner Bros. Pictures unleashes the 'SHAZAM!' trailer!

Warner Bros. Pictures has something fun up its sleeve with the trailer for director David F. Sandberg‘s upcoming DC Comics adaptation “SHAZAM!”. Following the trailer’s debut this morning during WB’s Comic-Con International panel, the “SHAZAM” trailer is now online and can be viewed using the player above. After you watch it, tweet us your thoughts @TheMoviebill.

Warner Bros. Pictures officially describes “SHAZAM!” as follows:

We all have a superhero inside us, it just takes a bit of magic to bring it out. In Billy Batson’s case, by shouting out one word—SHAZAM!—this streetwise 14-year-old foster kid can turn into the adult Super Hero Shazam, courtesy of an ancient wizard. Still a kid at heart—inside a ripped, godlike body—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.

Starring Asher Angel as Billy Batson and Zachary Levi as his super powered alter ego, the film’s cast also includes Mark Strong as the villainous Dr. Sivana and Djimon Hounsou as the Wizard who bestows upon Billy his super powers.

“SHAZAM!” hits theaters April 5, 2019.
