'Shazam!' New Looks and Updates
Entertainment Weekly recently revealed a couple of new images fron the upcoming 'Shazam!' film, along with new plot details.
We have our first official look of Asher Angel (@asherangel

If you’re unfamiliar with the comics, Batson is the alter-ego of the adult Shazam (Zachary Levi). When young Billy shouts the magic word, “Shazam!”, he transforms into Shazam, but he still has the personality of a teenage boy. In the film, Billy is an orphan who is granted the power of Shazam by a mysterious wizard (Djimon Hounsou).
At the start of the film, Billy moves into a new foster care home where he’s befriended by Freddy (Jack Dylan Grazer), whose knowledge of comics and superheroes comes in handy. “Freddy’s a fanbody when it comes to Batman, Superman, the Justice League, so he becomes Billy’s mentor and sansei when it comes to being a superhero,” Grazer says.
Dr. Thaddeus Sivana, played by Mark Strong, is the main antagonist of the film who was chosen by the Wizard as his successor but stripped him of his powers after proving unworthy of them. Sivana will stop at nothing to get back the power and magic that was once his. 'Shazam!' hits theatres on April 5, 2019 in the United States.
