The first trailer for DC's Shazam! will debut at Comic-Con International in San Diego later this month, the film's cinematographer has confirmed.
In a post to his Instagram page, cinematographer Maxime Alexandre confirmed rumors that the trailer for Shazam! would debut at San Diego Comic-Con during the DC Films panel in Hall H on Saturday, July 21. "Look for the Shazam! trailer to drop Saturday, July 21 at Comic-Con as well at the DC Films panel," Alexandre wrote in a caption on the first official look at Zachary Levi in costume, which was released earlier today.
Based on the classic Fawcett/DC comics, Shazam! tells the story of an orphaned 14-year-old Billy Batson (Asher Angel) who is granted the powers of six ancient heroes by a dying wizard named Shazam (Djimon Hounsou). Upon speaking the word “Shazam,” Batson is transformed by a magic lightning bolt into the adult superhero.
Shazam! completed principal photography in May in Toronto and is set to hit theaters on April 5, 2019. Directed by David F. Sandberg, Shazam! stars Zachary Levi as Shazam, Asher Angel as Billy Batson, Mark Strong as Dr. Thaddeus Sivana, Djimon Hounsou as an ancient wizard named Shazam, Grace Fulton as Mary Bromfield, Jack Dylan Grazer as Frederick “Freddy” Freeman, Ian Chen as Eugene Choi, Jovan Armand as Pedro Peña, Faithe Herman as Darla Dudley, Cooper Andrews as Victor Vázquez, and Marta Milans as Rosa Vázquez.
