I have to say that I’m pretty excited about this Shazam! film coming out. David F. Sandberg has done amazing work on Lights Out and Annabelle Creation and I’ve always liked the acting styling’s of Zachary Levi. Not only that, his Shazam will be going up against Dr. Thaddeus Sivana played by Mark Strong. This introduction to the magical realm of DC could be just what the studio needs and I really hope it’s a win for them. Check out their official synopsis below.

“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! hits theaters on April 5, 2019.
