The Second Trailer
A new trailer for Shazam! has arrived, and it's going to give you even more flashbacks to Big. The Warner Bros. film stars Zachary Levi as the titular DC superhero, who is actually the adult alter ego of Billy Batson (Disney Channel star Asher Angel). The young bullied kid is given a special gift from a wizard, who tells him that if he utters his name ("Shazam!") he'll gain superpowers. He does, promptly turning into a muscular bulletproof crime-fighter in a red and yellow suit. The new footage gives us an another look at some of those powers in action, and it has us even more excited for the release.
Judging from the trailer, this just might be the zany, fun superhero film you've been waiting for. (Admit it: those gritty Batman and Superman movies have been kind of a slog lately.) Check out both the trailers that have been released so far, before the movie zooms into theaters on Apr. 5.
