We have seen him downing canisters of soda pop and slurping on a super-sized soft drink, but for Billy Batson's most recent close-up, Warner Bros. has provided the very first trailer for Shazam!, Giving us a proper take on what's promptly developing into one of 2019's most awaited releases.
Amusing, charming, and perhaps a little too light-hearted for a superhero motion picture. This trailer is a stark contrast from the dark as well as moody reveals that prefaced Batman V Superman and Justice League, but it's clear that viewers are starting to request this change of pace and judging by precisely what we see here, it honestly could just be what the DCEU currently needs.
Moreover, also when it comes to Levi? Well, he's naturally excited to toy around with Shazam's god-like capabilities:
"It’s complete wish-fulfillment — if you scour all of DC and Marvel there are very few characters that are actually stoked to be a superhero. They’re not brooding, they’re not put out, like ‘Oh dammit, I gotta save the world again!’ Billy Batson is like Peter Parker, they’re thrilled to have these powers and can’t wait to try them out."
In instance you require it, below's a reminder of the journey that waits for young Bill Batson as he's permeated with the power of the gods-- quite literally, mind you, after a strange old wizard grants him the knowledge of Solomon, the stamina of Hercules, the endurance of Atlas as well as a lot, more abilities...
"In the film, Billy (whose younger version is played by Disney Channel star Asher Angel) is assigned to a new foster home where he befriends comic book superfan Freddy. One day, Billy’s subway ride is interrupted by a mysterious Wizard (Djimon Hounsou) whose been searching for ages to find the right successor to inherit his powers. He reveals the teen’s been selected to gain an assortment of abilities, and all it takes is for Billy to say ‘SHAZAM!’"
Shazam! Illuminate theatres all over the world on April 5th, 2019. That positions it in between Aquaman on December 21st, 2018 and Wonder Woman 1984 on November 1st, 2019, both of which are toning up to be exciting releases also.
