Warner Bros. has released a new TV spot for its upcoming superhero romp SHAZAM, featuring a solid amount of brand new footage. Zachary Levi and Jack Dylan Grazer are definitely all in on the charm department as the aged-up Billy Batson and his equally alliterative sidekick, Freddy Freeman. But I’m mostly intrigued by the very MAN OF STEEL-looking fight above a city happening between Billy and the villainous Dr. Thaddeus Sivana, played by Mark Strong. So far, most of the SHAZAM marketing has focused on the lighthearted tone of the film—this trailer largely does as well—but this might be the first footage to show off the film’s more familiar brand of comic book action.
SHAZAM is directed by David F. Sandberg (LIGHTS OUT) from a script by Henry Gayden. The film—which also stars Djimon Hounsou, Asher Angel, Adam Brody, and Michelle Borth—flies into theaters on April 5.
