Zachary Levi Is ‘Shazam!’ In Official Teaser Trailer

Not content with seeing Jason Momoa’s ‘Aquaman’ steal all of the DC glory at Comic-Con this weekend. Zachary Levi is taking a much lighter approach to this often brooding universe with ‘Shazam!’, working like a charm in the fun-filled teaser trailer released by Warner Bros.

Directed by David F. Sandberg, the initial footage focuses on foster kid Billy Batson (Asher Angel), who is chosen to channel superpowers through an ancient wizard, ultimately turning into the titular character with the childish sensibilities intact.

Yet he’s soon having to use his abilities for good, when faced with Mark Strong’s big bad Dr. Thaddeus Sivana.

‘Shazam!’ swoops into UK cinemas in April 2019.

We catch glimpses of Arthur Curry’s (Momoa) family unit, most notably Nicole Kidman’s Queen Atlanna and his feisty red-haired ally Mera (Amber Heard), merely teasing his potential king status as he clashes with half-brother Orm (Patrick Wilson), allowing Wan to dial up the underwater spectacle and throw in a goat for good measure.

We’re positively drowning in excitement already. Here’s the trailer…

Michael Dougherty’s (Krampus) 2018 film seems awfully keen to amend this with the epic debut trailer for ‘Godzilla: King Of The Monsters’, pitting the iconic creature against some of his greatest adversaries. Expect stunning money shots of Mothra, Rodan and a certain three-headed titan by the name King Ghidorah, whilst the human heroics are left to the Russell family consisting of Millie Bobby Brown, Vera Farmiga and Kyle Chandler.

The film roars into cinemas next May.
