‘Shazam!’ Trailer: Zachary Levi is a Kid in a Big Superhero Body [Comic-Con 2018]

Posted on Saturday, July 21st, 2018 by Hoai-Tran Bui

Warner Bros. has been struggling with the direction of its DC film universe lately, but with the oncoming release of Shazam!,the future looks bright. The studio released the first Shazam trailer during the San Diego Comic-Con panel for the superhero movie starring Zachary Levi, and it suggests we could get a thoroughly entertaining (and funny) DCEU movie.

Shazam Trailer

The beauty of the superhero genre is that you can mix it with almost any other movie genre. A spy thriller? A heist movie? A Western? You got it! But just when it seems like comic book movies have exhausted this kind of genre-bending twist, in comes Shazam! which imagines: What if Big, but superheroes?

Zachary Levi stars as the titular Shazam (originally called Captain Marvel in the comics), but he’s not the real protagonist. That would be Billy Batson (Asher Angel) a young orphan boy who is given superpowers by a mysterious Wizard (Djimon Hounsou). These powers enable Billy to transform into the adult superhero Shazam by shouting some magic words that may or may not be “Shazam!”

The film wisely focuses on Billy’s ecstatic reaction to being turned into a full-fledged superhero, but also on his friendship with Freddy Freeman (It‘s Jack Dylan Grazer), a fellow orphan who becomes Billy’s accomplice. Shazam also stars Mark Strong as the villain Dr. Thaddeus Sivana.

Here is the synopsis for Shazam!:

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).

Shazam! opens in theaters on April 5, 2019.

Shazam! (2019)

A boy is given the ability to become an adult superhero in times of need with a single magic word.

Billy Batson is a young boy chosen by the wizard Shazam to be the world’s mightiest mortal. Whenever he calls on the wizard’s name, he turns into a superhero named Captain Marvel who possess the wisdom of Solomon, strength of Hercules, stamina of Atlas, power of Zeus, courage of Achilles, and the speed of Mercury.

Shazam is one of the movies to be added to DC’s growing Extended Universe, to release in 2019. After months of speculations, it is confirmed that director David F. Sandberg will direct the movie based on a screenplay written by Henry Gayden.

Dwayne Johnson has long been confirmed to play the Shazam villain, Black Adam, but he may not appear in this film. The actor shared that his character will be more like the New 52 version of the character – more like an anti-hero than anything else.

As of this writing, the director has revealed that pre-production has already begun with filming eyed to begin in early 2018. He also revealed that two separate actors will play Billy and his superhero alter-ego. No actor has been announced to play the lead yet but John Cena and Joshua Sasse are considered frontrunners for the role.

Billy and Captain Marvel first appeared in Whiz Comics #2, published by Fawcett Comics. He was created by writer Bill Parker and artist C.C. Beck in 1939. He is considered one of the most popular characters in the 1940s, and became the first comic superhero to be featured in a film.

A copyright infringement suit filed by DC Comics caused the halt of the comic publication in 1953. DC would later acquire the rights to the character, and he joined the DC universe.

The studio released the first Shazam trailer during the San Diego Comic-Con panel for the superhero movie starring Zachary Levi, and it suggests we could get a thoroughly entertaining (and funny) DCEU movie.

The beauty of the superhero genre is that you can mix it with almost any other movie genre. A spy thriller? A heist movie? A Western? You got it! But just when it seems like comic book movies have exhausted this kind of genre-bending twist, in comes Shazam! which imagines: What if Big, but superheroes?

Zachary Levi stars as the titular Shazam (originally called Captain Marvel in the comics), but he’s not the real protagonist.

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.

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! opens in theaters on April 5, 2019.

Shazam Movie: Every Update You Need To Know

  • by Mansoor Mithaiwala
  • – on Mar 20, 2018
  • in SR Originals
  • Movie: Shazam!
  • Release Date: April 5, 2019
  • Cast: Asher Angel, Zachary Levi, Mark Strong, Ron Cephas Jones, Grace Fulton, Jack Dylan Grazer, Ian Chen, Jovan Armand, Faithe Herman, Cooper Andrews, Marta Milans, Lotta Losten
  • Director: David F. Sandberg
  • Writers: Henry Gayden, Darren Lemke

Asher Angel is Playing Billy Batson in Shazam!

Child actor Asher Angel, who is known for playing Andi Mack on the Disney Channel, is playing a young Billy Batson in Shazam! In the film, Batson transforms into the superhero Shazam when he exclaims the word “Shazam!“. Angel snagged the role from dozens of other young actors who were vying for the gig. What’s interesting is that Angel’s name is also an alliteration just as the character he plays. Fitting, isn’t it?

Zachary Levi is Playing Shazam/Captain Marvel in Shazam!

Chuck and Tangled star Zachary Levi is playing the superhero Shazam (formerly known as Captain Marvel) in Shazam! He previously played Fandral in Thor: The Dark World and Thor: Ragnarok, which means he has some experience in comic book roles. But Levi has had to bulk up in order to play the DC superhero. Levi beat out reported frontrunners John Cena and Joshua Sasse for the title role.

Mark Strong is Playing Dr. Sivana in Shazam!

Mark Strong is playing Shazam!‘s big bad, Doctor Sivana (whose name is a combination of the god Siva and the word “nirvana”). He’s Shazam’s archnemesis and one of the smartest people alive. Plus, he’s a member of the Injustice League in the comics. Strong previously said playing Sivana in Shazam! is his opportunity to get right whatever wrongs from appearing in the much-maligned Green Lantern adaptation. However, Strong’s portrayal of Sinestro in Martin Campbell’s 2011 film wasn’t what audiences had issues with, so he needn’t worry about his “unfinished business” with DC Films.

Shazam! Also Stars Grace Fulton and Ron Cephas Jones

Additional cast members consist primarily of the Marvel/Shazam family, as well as Billy’s closest friends. Ron Cephas Jones is playing the wizard Shazam, who endows Billy Batson with the powers of the seven Grecko-Roman gods/heroes: Solomon, Hercules, Atlas, Zeus, Achilles, and Mercury. Grace Fulton, on the other hand, is believed to be playing Billy’s sister, Mary Batson (who becomes a hero in her own right in the comics).

Jack Dylan Grazer (Freddy Freeman), Ian Chen (Eugene Choi), Jovan Armand (Pedro Peña), and Faithe Herman (Darla Dudley) are all slated to play Billy’s closest friends (character names in parentheses). Cooper Andrews and Marta Milans are playing Billy’s and the rest of the children‘s foster parents, with Lotta Losten (Sandberg’s wife and frequent collaborator) appearing in an undisclosed role.

Shazam Fights Dr. Sivana & Deadly Forces In Shazam!

The official Shazam! synopsis reveals Dr. Thaddeus Sivana as the film’s main villain and teases Billy Batson’s newfound powers, which are endowed to him by an ancient wizard. Perhaps the biggest surprise from the synopsis, though, is that Shazam! will age-up Billy from being a 10-year-old kid to 14 years old. While Shazam will be testing out his abilities throughout the film, “he’ll need to master these powers quickly in order to fight the deadly forces of evil controlled by Dr. Thaddeus Sivana.

There’s Isn’t a Shazam! Trailer Yet

There isn’t a trailer for Shazam! just yet. Considering that the film entered production in late-January 2018 and is scheduled to wrap in May 2018, Warner Bros. may unveil a teaser trailer (or at least the first batch of footage) for Shazam! at San Diego Comic-Con 2018.

Shazam! Has A Teaser Poster

There is a poster released for Shazam!. It’s only a teaser poster, revealing the movie’s logo and promoting the 2019 release date, but gives a taste of how the movie will work. A full poster with Levi isn’t expected until SDCC 2018 at the earliest.

How Shazam! Connects to the DCEU

Shazam! does exist in Warner Bros.’ DC Extended Universe. Prior to the film entering pre-production, it was reported that Shazam! may exist outside the unofficially titled DCEU (a rumor exacerbated by the fact that it’s being produced by New Line Cinema). Director David F. Sandberg nipped that rumor in the bud when he officially confirmed that Shazam! would be set in the DCEU in August 2017.

At the moment, though, it’s unclear how the film will exactly connect to the rest of the shared universe, or if it will be a standalone story that merely takes place parallel to the other DCEU films.

Henry Cavill May Cameo as Superman in Shazam!

Henry Cavill is rumored to have a cameo as Superman in Shazam! He has one film left on his contract with Warner Bros., and appearing in Shazam! will satisfy his obligations to the role. However, it’s possible that he may only cameo in the film and not have a major role, which would then allow him to star in at least one more DC film as the Last Son of Krypton without re-upping his contract.

David F. Sandberg is Directing Shazam!

Horror filmmaker David F. Sandberg is directing Shazam! for New Line Cinema. Sandberg started out making short films, and the studio gave him a shot at the big leagues with a feature adaptation of his short film, Lights Out. He followed up his success with Annabelle: Creation in 2017 and is now making the jump to superhero comedy with Shazam! in 2019.

Henry Gayden & Darren Lemke Wrote Shazam!’s Script

New Line Cinema has been trying to adapt Shazam! since the early 2000s. The film went through multiple drafts from the likes of Joel Cohen, Peter Segal, and John August, before landing with Goosebumps scribe Darren Lemke, who wrote the film’s current screenplay in 2014. Earth to Echo screenwriter Henry Gayden boarded Shazam! in January 2017 to rewrite Lemke’s draft, which is now the final script that’s being used in production.

Shazam! Will Be Funny, But Not Joke-y

Shazam! is going to be the DCEU’s most lighthearted movie yet, with lots of situational humor. But the movie won’t be filled with “quippy one-liners” according to Sandberg. There will be a balance between humor and seriousness to give audiences an accurate take on the character.

Dwayne Johnson Won’t Appear as Black Adam in Shazam!

Dwayne Johnson officially joined the DCEU as Black Adam in 2014. He was expected to appear in Shazam! as the big bad, but DC Films co-chief Geoff Johns stated in July 2017 that Black Adam won’t be starring in Shazam! Instead, Johnson will headline a solo Black Adam movie before facing off against Shazam in a future film.
