This weekend at SDCC Shazam! received its first teaser trailer showing Chuck‘s Zachary Levi as the titular superhero.
I’ll be honest, I have no idea what or who Shazam! is. The only details I know is that he was the first Captain Marvel before Marvel decided to take the name for themselves. That being said, the trailer for this upcoming movie actually looks pretty good.
In the trailer, much like the one for Aquaman which was also released this past weekend, we see our unbeknownst hero, Billy Batson, being introduced to his foster family including his now foster brother Freddy Freeman who’s obsessed with superheroes.
Unfortunately for Freeman, his disability causes him to become the victim of bullying, but now he has Batson on his side. After an altercation with some bullies, Batson finds himself being spoken to by an otherworldly voice and poof, he becomes Shazam!
We also get to see Shazam! discovering which superpowers he possesses, which includes super strength and bullet invincibility, as well as a wicked sense of humor.
