Just say the word. He does say it in the latest new Poster for Shazam! DC Entertainment’s comedic superhero. The last time we heard anything from this film was the film’s trailer launch back at Sand Diego Comic-Con.
We can assume there will be a new trailer about to drop as we now have a brand new Poster. The Poster itself teases the film’s nonsensical tone. We see our hero (Zachary Levi) just waiting for the word, chewing gum, texting…
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).
The film stars Djimon Hounsou, Grace Fulton, Faithe Herman, Ian Chen, Jovan Armand, Cooper Andrews, and Marta Milans.
Shazam! will arrive in the UK and Ireland from 5th April 2019 (the USA also 5th April 2019).
