Warner Bros. Pictures has released a brand new “Meet Shazam!” featurette for David F. Sandberg‘s upcoming superhero origin story, Shazam!, out in cinemas nationwide on 5th April 2019!
Based on the DC Comics character of the same name, the film stars Zachary Levi as Shazam, Asher Angel as Billy Batson, and Mark Strong as Super-Villain Dr. Thaddeus Sivana, alongside Jack Dylan Grazer, Grace Fulton, Ian Chen, Jovan Armand, Faithe Herman, Cooper Andrews, Marta Milans and Djimon Hounsou.
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).
