Being a superhero….it doesn’t get much cooler than that and that’s exactly where Shazam! is going to take us in this much anticipated blockbuster release, and now audiences can take a behind-the-scenes look at what awaits us here.
With a focus on stars Zachary Levi, Asher Angel and Jack Dylan Grazer, this motley trio look like they’ve been having the time of their lives and they’re bringing something truly amazing to the big screen here.
The new featurette focuses on the day-to-day life of Billy Batson (Angel) and his transformative journey into the mythological hero Shazam (Levi), and all the fun that this new hero gets up to following his transformation. In terms of a film, Shazam! is kind of the ultimate example of the wish fulfillment movie and the results are going to be all kind of crazy as these two teenagers now have the ultimate power to do whatever they want….with hilarious results.
On what the appeal of Shazam! is, star Zachary Levi explained “Shazam is one of very few superhero characters that is genuinely stoked to be a superhero. More often than not you’ve got a character who is begrudgingly pulled into this and everybody needs them and they’re like ‘ooohhh I need to save the world again’, Billy Batson is stoked!”.
With a terrific narrative, wicked action and breathtaking visual effects, Shazam! is a superhero extravaganza that will make for one solid rush when it arrives in cinemas on April 4.
