Watch: SHAZAM! official teaser trailer

We all have a superhero inside us, it just takes a bit of magic to bring it out.

“Say my name so that my powers may flow through you.”

DCEU revealed their official SHAZAM! teaser trailer today and the charming, humorous tone and spot-on naivete of Zachary Levi as Billy Batson/Shazam show the DC Cinematic team is willing to learn from their past mistakes and egregiously dark approach to superhero movies. Big meets Superman, anyone?

The official synopsis:

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 in April 2019.
