Benjamin Wallfisch to score Shazam!

Warner Bros. has hired acclaimed film composer Benjamin Wallfisch to score the upcoming superhero film Shazam! This will be the composer's third collaboration with director David F. Sandberg having previously worked together on Annabelle: Creation and Lights Out. Wallfisch has composed for a number of hit films recently, including Blade Runner 2049, It and A Cure For Wellness. This will be his first score for a superhero movie.

Shazam! will be the seventh film in the DC Expanded Universe and stars Asher Angel as Billy Batson, a boy who can turn into an adult superhero (played by Zachary Levi) by saying the magic word "Shazam."

The film is scheduled to be released on April 5, 2019 in the US - no word yet on the UK release.
