The ROBOT CHICKEN Team Has Some Fun With SHAZAM! in a Series of Comedy Sketches
Robot Chicken teamed up with WB and DC to create a series of Shazam! comedy sketches to help promote the movie. I love the kind of comedy that Robot Chicken delivers and they had some fun with this one.
One of the things they poke fun at is the fact that after Billy discovers he can transform into a superhero with all kinds of cool super powers, the one thing they think about doing is going out to buy some beer.
The reviews for Shazam! have been rolling in and it looks like fans and critics are loving it! I hope that the hype is real on this one! I’m stoked about seeing this movie. On a side note, everyone should ask Robot Chicken to help promote their stuff!
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 (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).
Shazam! also stars Jack Dylan Grazer as Freddy, Djimon Hounsou as The Wizard, Grace Fulton as Mary Bromfield, Ross Butler, Adam Brody, and Michelle Borth. It hits theaters on April 5, 2019.
