We know that DC has several movies lined up as part of the DCEU, and recently a trailer for the upcoming Aquaman has been released. However you might have also heard that there is a Shazam! movie that is also in the works and you’ll be pleased to learn that a trailer for the upcoming film has been released.
For those unfamiliar with Shazam, this is a character in the DC universe who is typically portrayed as young boy in school, but upon uttering the magical word “Shazam!”, he is then transformed into a muscular superhero that bears the same name. The movie will star Zachary Levi as Shazam, who many are familiar with when he starred in the TV series “Chuck”, and where he also had roles in Marvel’s Thor movies.
It was previously reported that Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson was set to star in the movie where he would play Shazam’s enemy, Black Adam. However that is no longer the case as Black Adam is expected to get his own story. However there are some who speculate that the Shazam! movie could provide some hints and clues to Black Adam.
That being said, the Shazam! movie is currently set for a release on the 19th of April which means that we still have quite a bit of ways to go before we are able to see it, but in the meantime hopefully this trailer will help sate your appetite.
