Billy Batson is soaring to theaters in April.
Warner Bros. and New Line Cinema have released a new trailer for Shazam!. The DC superhero flick is set to hit theaters on April 5, 2019.
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! comes from director David F. Sandberg and stars Zachary Levi, Asher Angel, and Mark Strong, along with Jack Dylan Grazer, Grace Fulton, Faithe Herman, Ian Chen, Jovan Armand, Cooper Andrews, Marta Milans, and Djimon Hounsou.
Other upcoming DC films include Todd Phillips' Joker which will premiere on October 4, 2019, Cathy Yan's Birds of Prey (And the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn) which will premiere on February 7, 2020, and Patty Jenkins' Wonder Woman 1984 which will premiere on June 5, 2020.
