DC has released the new official trailer for Shazam! superhero film starring Zachary Levi.
The star from the well-known TV series Chuck, Levi is back with a hero character. New Line Cinema and Warner Bros. have collaborated for this new film directed by David F. Sandberg. Here is the full synopsis:
“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 talents co-starring Levi in this film are Asher Angel, Mark Strong, Jack Dylan Grazer, Grace Fulton, Faithe Herman and Ian Chen. SHAZAM! will premiere on April 5.
