Aquaman has provided a second wind to the DC Extended Universe. Not long after it passed the billion dollar mark, Warner Bros. has dropped a new teaser for Shazam!.
And unlike the King of Atlantis, Billy Batson evolved from being a kid to an adult with god-worthy powers just by uttering a single word… “Shazam!”
The new Shazam! teaser features Billy (Asher Angel) enjoying his new ability to become an adult superhero, as played by Zachary Levi:
According to the movie’s official description:
“Billy Batson is a streetwise 14-year-old foster kid who always kept everyone at arm’s length. One day, a dying wizard grants him superpowers of six ancient heroes, which Billy can activate whenever he says the wizard’s name, Shazam. He is then turned into the adult superhero Shazam via a magic lightning bolt.”
Mark Strong is playing Shazam’s nemesis, Dr. Thaddeus Sivana while Grace Fulton is playing Billy’s foster sister, Mary. Faithe Herman, Ian Chen, Jovan Armand. Cooper Andrews, and Marta Milans round out the cast.
New Line Cinema and Warner Bros. Pictures will release Shazam! in theaters on April 5, 2019 in the US and UK.
