DC Entertainment finally has some fun with the first trailer for SHAZAM!
Billy Batson has been having a rough go at childhood, moving from foster home to foster home and never quite feeling like he belongs. Still, young Billy is tough and resourceful. When he chooses to stand up for his foster brother and new friend Freddy Freeman, the ancient powers that be decide that Billy should be the next great hero of Earth– Shazam!
With a single word, Billy can soon transform himself into an adult superhero, but he’ll need Freddy to help him master his powers. Billy sets out on an adventure to save the world as Shazam, but he’s still a total kid at heart.
We don’t see much of the villain in this one, but this movie looks like the charming family fun film that DC needs to round out its comic adaptation offerings.
Shazam hits theaters on April 5, 2019.
