The early reactions to Shazam! are out and they are looking very positive so far. It looks like DC might have another hit on their hands. A new clip from early on in the movie, we can assume, has appeared on Youtube and seems to show Billy meeting up with Freddy.
That’s a pretty long clip but it does help set the tone for the movie. It looks like everyone involved is having a lot of fun and doesn’t seem to be taking all of this too seriously. While the early buzz is very good that doesn’t mean this movie will be a box office success. The early numbers should be coming in soon and they’ll be telling.
Summary: A boy is given the ability to become an adult superhero in times of need with a single magic word.
Shazam!, directed by David F. Sandberg, stars Zachary Levi, Mark Strong, Grace Fulton, Faithe Herman, Jack Dylan Grazer, and Asher Angel, and will be written by Henry Gayden and Darren Lemke. It will be released on April 5th, 2019.
