SDCC 2018: Warner Brothers release official trailer for Shazam!

Warner Bros. kept their promise and delivered the goods for Hall H attendees when they took over the venue on Saturday, July 21 at San Diego Comic-Con.

Shazam! follows the story of young foster child Billy Baston (Asher Angel) who is gifted powers all thanks to a wizard, portrayed by Djmon Honsou. Once young Billy yells “Shazam!”, he’s turned into an adult superhero, portrayed by Zachary Levi.

We finally get to see Zachary Levi in the official gear and no longer need to lurk for leaked photos online as he dominates the trailer in his epic suit.

Below is the synopsis of the film, courtesy of

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 (Zachary 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 (Mark Strong).


Shazam! is in theaters April 5, 2019. Let us know what you think!
