Shazam! is in theaters on April 5th, 2019.
When I was at Comic-Con 2018 I got my first glimpse of real life Shazam and was hooked! I’ve always loved Billy Batson - especially in Young Justice, whatever he’s in it just brightens everything up.
Zachary Levi stars as Shazam! A superhero chosen by a long line of magicians. Asher Angel plays Billy Batson, an orphan who ends up in a foster home and finds a new best fiend, Freddy played by Jack Dylan Grazer. When Billy gets his powers Freddy helps him along the journey. Mark Strong plays the villain of Dr. Thaddeus Sivana...I’m not gonna lie, I thought it was Stanley Tucci the whole time! They could be twins! Anyways...
This film is absolutely hilarious and what I’m sure is a very welcome change for DC fans. I personally like how dark the other movies are but I also appreciate humor and having fun in a film. It seems like the cast had an absolute blast and it payed off because this movie is getting great reviews. I particularly liked the ending scene and the credits. I enjoyed all of the DC superhero references and particularly loved the ending scene!
DC is knocking it out of the park lately!
Rating: 4.5 out of 5
