Just say the word…
The brand new poster for DC’s Shazam! has arrived and it has already got a lot of people laughing. As fans of DC Comics will know, Shazam! follows the life of 14 year old Billy Batson, who can turn himself into the superhero Captain Marvel by saying the word ‘Shazam!’ and Billy does exactly what any teenager would do if given superpowers, has fun with them. Personally, I think the first thing I would do if I was a 14 year old boy who suddenly turns into an adult superhero, would be to take a trip down the local off license, but Billy has other ideas.
Directed by David F. Sandberg, Shazam! is next up in the DC cinematic universe, following the release of Aquaman later this month, and judging by the trailer it looks as though DC have chosen a very funny storyline to get the best out of the character Billy Batson and the poster itself has a, dare I say it, Deadpool quality to it, which you can see below.
Shazam! has a great cast with Zachary Levi as Captain Marvel, Asher Angel as Billy Batson, Captain Marvel’s 14 year old counterpart, Djimon Hounsou as Shazam and Mark Strong as the super villain Dr Thaddeus Sivana and it looks like DC are finally going down the route of funny superheroes, which has seen Marvel do so well. Shazam! is released in April 2019 by DC, check out the trailer below.
