Not only that, but it Shazam! cinematographer went ahead and spilled the beans and announced that the trailer was going to premiere during the DC panel in Hall H on Saturday, July 21st.

Here’s the first official photo.
“I wanted to keep the shorter cape as a throwback to the original because that’s something that sets him apart from Superman or Batman,” the director tells EW. “It makes him feel a bit more Golden Age superhero, which is the vibe I’m going for.” Yet Shazam also has a hood from DC’s 2011 “New 52” relaunch, a glowing lightning bolt that can appear across his chest and wears the gold gauntlets from one of Shazam’s animated movie appearances.
Though it’s no surprise to anyone that there will be a Shazam! appearance by at least some of the cast and director, we don’t know how many from the cast will be there. Considering that Marvel isn’t going to have a panel this year, it’s DC’s advantage to take.
