During a special sneak peek of Shazam! Warner Bros. showed off the first 20 minutes of the film, giving lucky viewers a better look at the upcoming superhero film.
The description for the footage in question comes to us through Comicbook.com that described a number of interesting things about the upcoming film. This notably includes an intro that starts off with Eminem’s “Slim Shady” with Billy Batson and his adopted family heading into class. From there, Billy stands up to bigger kids while protecting his adopted brother. Warner Bros. apparently opted to edit through an apparent chance scene to Billy on the subway.
From there Billy is transported to the Rock of Eternity and meets Djimon Hounsou’s Wizard. The footage then goes into a montage of history regarding the power of Shazam! but apparently was a bit hard to comprehend as it was full of unfinished effects. Here he reportedly identified himself as the last Wizard who used to be one of a consul
Not long after, Batson is transformed into Shazam! and turns to his adoptive brother where there was a montage of discovering what his powers were. The footage apparently ends with Shazam! stopping a mugger with excessive force that was not needed. Apparently, Batson still has a lot to learn before he becomes a true hero!
What do you all make of this footage description? Does it tell you anything you didn’t already know from the trailer? Was it necessary for Warner Bros. to release it? Let us know what you think in the comments below!
Directed by David F. Sandberg, Shazam! stars Zachary Levi, Asher Angel, Mark Strong, Jack Dylan Grazer, Grace Fulton, Faithe Herman, Ian Chen, Jovan Armand, Cooper Andrews, Marta Milans, and Djimon Hounsou.
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! will be released in theaters on April 5, 2019.
Suicide Squad Characters That Can Appear In The James Gunn Sequel
James Gunn is directing The Suicide Squad for Warner Bros. but that comes at a cost.
When the first Suicide Squad was about to hit theaters DC fans were completely ecstatic. The trailers looked great and the feel of the movie was much different than the darkness that preceded it in Man of Steel and Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. This movie was expected to be one of DC’s biggest hits and it turned out to be one of the biggest let-downs of all time.
Suicide Squad was bad and its reviews reflected that. It was one of the only movies I’ve ever been upset at and it made me want to leave the theater. A sequel was announced because the film did well at the box office, going through a number of drafts until James Gunn was brought on to write it. With James Gunn now officially set to direct The Suicide Squad, it looks like the film will be a bit of a soft reboot.
Last night was a bit of a DC maelstrom of news. We got the release dates and official titles of Matt Reeves’ The Batman and James Gunn’s The Suicide Squad. Both movies will be hitting theaters in Summer 2021. Throughout all of the chaos a small tidbit surfaced about The Suicide Squad: the James Gunn-directed film will be some sort of relaunch with new characters and actors. Here are the characters I think James Gunn should introduce in his Suicide Squad movie. Hit Next to view all of my choices.
