Warner Bros. has already announced that we’ll be getting our first look at Aquaman with the release of a trailer for the superhero blockbuster during the DC Films panel at San Diego Comic-Con a week from today, and now it seems we have confirmation that the Shazam! trailer will also be unveiled.
In a now deleted Instagram post sharing the first official image from the movie, Shazam! cinematographer Maxime Alexandre wrote: “Look for the Shazam! trailer to drop Saturday, July 21 at Comic-Con as well at the DC Films panel.”
The DC Films panel should certainly be interesting, with Gal Gadot also on hand to share some footage from Wonder Woman 1984, and Warner Bros. expected to announce details of its reshuffled slate – as well as a possible rebranding of the DCEU.
Meanwhile, having originally been lined up to portray Black Adam in the Shazam! movie before getting his own solo film, Dwayne Johnson has confirmed once again that he won’t be appearing in the David F. Sandberg-directed film:
“I’m not in [Shazam!],” Johnson told Syfy Wire. “It’s Shazam! and Black Adam and, with the way the DC universe works, we should — in theory — meet up on the big screen. But who knows.”
We all have a superhero inside us, it just takes a bit of magic to bring it out. In Billy Batson’s (Asher Angel) case, by shouting out one word—SHAZAM!—this streetwise 14-year-old foster kid can turn into the adult Super Hero Shazam (Zachary 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 (Mark Strong).”
Shazam will see Zachary Levi starring as the titular superhero, with Asher Angel as his young alter-ego Billy Batson, Jack Dylan Grazer as Freddy Freeman, Ian Chen as Eugene Choi, Jovan Armand as Pedro Peña, Grace Fulton as Mary Marvel, Cooper Andrews as Victor Vasquez, Faithe Herman as Darla Dudley, Mark Strong as Dr. Thaddeus Sivana, Djimon Hounsou as the Wizard, Adam Brody as Freddie Freeman, Ross Butler as Eugene Choi, D. J. Cotrona as Pedro Pena, Meagan Good as Darla Dudley, and Michelle Borth as Mary Bromfield. The film is set for release on April 5th 2019.
