New Shazam Trailer has been released
You can watch the trailer below:
The new Shazam trailer gives Doctor Sivana, played by Mark Strong, a lot of screentime. It showed him as a nefarious villain with evil plans who will encounter Shazam at every turn. Though Billy will only be trying to learn how to control his powers, he already got an enemy to face. Sivana is one of the longest-running villains in Shazam’s comics. So, making him the villain of Shazam’s origin movie makes a lot of sense.
The movie also continues the way of Warner Bros and DC to tell the story of other heroes in other superhero’s movie without their actual presence. In Shazam too, there is a moment where Batman and the Man of Steel come into the picture. Check out the image below of Shazam throwing a Batman doll on Doctor Sivana.
Till now, Shazam looks to be going the right way. It can be a blockbuster but depends on the core storyline, which is not yet known, exactly. Otherwise, there are a lot of humorous moments in the movie like Billy trying to buy beer and electrocuting a bus while having fun with electricity. Overall, the movie is going to be enjoyable with great fights.
Shazam drops on April 5, 2019. Other DC Movies that are going to release includes Birds of Prey on February 7, 2020, and Wonder Woman: 1984 on June 5, 2020.
