Shazam's Fight With Doctor Sivana Intensifies in New TV Spot

Doctor Sivana Shazam Mark Strong

Although the second trailer for David F. Sandberg's Shazam! probably won't release until later this week, a new TV spot gives fans a look at a lot of footage that didn't appear in the first trailer.

The video starts with Billy Batson receiving his powers and flying around Philadelphia. However, the footage quickly starts to showcase Shazam's confrontations with Doctor Sivana. From the look of the footage, there are at least two battles shown. The video also gives some indication of their abilities. The TV spot ends with Billy and Freddy Freeman trying to obtain a "lair."

As with the film's first trailer, this TV spot mixes the comedy and action that define Sandberg's approach to the movie. Shazam! will be the next film in the DC Extended Universe after Aquaman, which was a massive success at the box office. It's unclear how Shazam! will do as compared to Aquaman. However, it's definitely an important film for the future of the DCEU.
