SHAZAM! Featurette Delves Into The Heart of the Character

A new featurette-style look has been released for SHAZAM!, and it offers up cast and crew interviews discussing the titular hero and his alter ego Billy Batson. You don’t really get that much new footage from the film, but you get solid insights into the character of SHAZAM!, and how the cast brought his world to life.

SHAZAM! hits theaters on April 5, 2019.

About SHAZAM!

We all have a superhero inside us, it just takes a bit of magic to bring it out. In Billy Batson’s (Angel) case, by shouting out one word—SHAZAM!—this streetwise 14-year-old foster kid can turn into the adult Super Hero Shazam (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 (Strong).
