SHAZAM! Has a Rough Time Figuring Out His Super Powers in Fun New Film Clip
Warner Bros. has released a lengthy new clip from DC’s Shazam! that features Billy Batson (Asher Angel) newly transformed as his superhero alter ego (Zachary Levi). As you might imagine, he’s totally freaking out and the only person he knows to reach out to is his superhero-obsessed friend Freddy (Jack Dylan Grazer) and together they go out to figure out what kinds of super powers that Billy has. As you’ll see, it’s much harder than it looks to figure these things out!
This is an amusing clip that gives us a fun taste of the film and what we can expect to see from these two characters as they stumble through their young lives with these new superhero abilities.
Here’s the synopsis:
We all have a superhero inside us, it just takes a bit of magic to bring it out. In Billy Batson’s (Asher Angel) case, by shouting out one word—SHAZAM!—this streetwise 14-year-old foster kid can turn into the adult Super Hero Shazam (Zachary 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 (Mark Strong).
Shazam! was directed by Annabelle's David F. Sandberg and also stars Mark Strong as Dr. Thaddeus Sivana, Djimon Hounsou as The Wizard, Grace Fulton as Mary Bromfield, Ross Butler, Adam Brody, and Michelle Borth.
Shazam! will be released on April 5th, 2019.
