We all have a superhero inside us, it just takes a bit of magic to bring it out. In Billy Batson's (Asher Angel) case, by shouting only one word -- SHAZAM! -- this streetwise 14-year-old foster kid can turn into the adult Super Hero Shazam (Zachary Levi), courtesy of an ancient wizard (Djimon Hounsou). 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 (Mark Strong).

Good biceps, okay delts, meh everything else. Cred for showing his body like this though, can't say many of these actors having that much guts with exception of beautiful Hemsworth and Huge Jackman. Others show altered and/or carefully selected staged pics at best.

He's made a lot of progress, he used to be kind of a skinny/fat build if I remember correctly.

Sure, but he's going to play a superhero, so in that regard I'm not impressed. Good for him not being as skinny fat as before though.

The Shazam lightning bolt didn't work all the way in that pic.

Yeah he wasn't given a lot of time from when he was hired to when they started filming so he's done a good job, it's not like he started out as an athletic guy. The most iconic actor to play a superhero ever is Christopher Reeve and he was just tall and lean.

A couple of quick new shots but this is 98% footage we have already seen, still looks like a ton of fun.

I thought the trailers were terrible. Then I thought, what if this is intentional? What if they intentionally made the movie cheesy on purpose?

It's supposed to be sort of like the movie Big with a superhero twist, I mean he's a 14 year old kid who gets powers with no real training so it's easy to see why he acts the way he does.

Sound like it's a winner with WB ready to let reviews come out in the next week or 2

I doubt I see this in theater. I’m definitely looking forward to watching this at home.

Can’t wait, looks fun as it should. Hoping it’s better than Captain Marvel, which was meh.

Why does China always get better trailers? lol The other ones are great but that showed more footage.
China tends to get more spoilers in trailers
