Warner Bros. has finally started their marketing campaign for the highly anticipated DC film Shazam!, and we’ve been treated to our first look at the new logo and website as well as the stars of the show partnering up with Entertainment Weekly to do a live stream Q&A.
One of the questions a fan asked was to hear the two stars, Asher Angel and Zachary Levi, shout Billy Batson’s famous catchphrase to turn into the superhero – Shazam! Well the two stars happily obliged and if you skip to around the 5:20 mark in the video below, you can hear the line come to life! The two were also asked how many times they’ve had to say the word so far, with Angel commenting he’s had to say it every day!
Check out the live stream below.
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! is set for release on April 5, 2019.
