With Shazam! only seven weeks away from being released, Warner Bros has clearly begun it’s worldwide marketing push, as they’ve now provided us with a cool new featurette for the Superhero adventure-comedy. This sneak peek at the movie gives us a glimpse of brand new footage from the likely blockbuster hit. Check out the fun clip below, followed by the official synopsis for the film.
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 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.
Opening on April 5, director David F. Sandberg’s Shazam! stars Zachary Levi as Shazam, Asher Angel as Billy Batson, Mark Strong as Dr. Thaddeus Sivana, Djimon Hounsou as the ancient wizard Shazam, Grace Fulton as Mary Bromfield and Jack Dylan Grazer as Frederick “Freddy” Freeman.
