While 2018 only has one DC Comics film in Aquaman, 2019 might have up to four, with the first one being Shazam!. The film is going to be very different from previous films in the DC Comics Film Universe, but that’s ok, because this is a very different kind of superhero.
Warner Bros revealed the official synopsis for the film, check it out below:
“We all have a superhero inside us, it just takes a bit of magic to bring it out. In Billy Batson’s (Asher Angel) case, by shouting out one word—SHAZAM!—this streetwise 14-year-old foster kid can turn into the adult Super Hero Shazam (Zachary 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 ( Mark Strong).”
Shazam! arrives April 5th, 2019.
