New Shazam! trailer: All it takes is one magic word

There has been talk of a new Shazam! trailer since late December when director David F. Sandberg announced one would appear in the New Year. He's remained true to his world - although it has taken a little longer than most people anticipated. We also heard from Warner Bros. studio executive, Kevin Tsujihara, a few days ago that the DCEU would be focussing on standalone films for the foreseeable future. With Joker, Wonder Woman 1984, and Birds of Prey also lined up for release, unlike Marvel, there won't be a linear style maintained across these films. Shazam! is very definitely its own thing, and you can see more by watching the new trailer above.

We all have a superhero inside us, it just takes a bit of magic to bring it out. In Billy Batson’s 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.

David F. Sandberg is directing, with Zachary Levi, Asher Angel, Mark Strong, Jack Dylan Graze, Ross Butler, Djimon Hounsou and Ross Butler all the cast.

Shazam! will magically appear on UK cinema screens on April 5th.
