Shazam is a movie directed by David F. Sandberg and written by Henry Gayden, from a story by Peter Safran and Geoff Johns. It is based on the DC Comics character Shazam, created by Bill Parker and C.C. Beck. It stars Zachary Levi as Shazam, Asher Angel as Billy Batson, Mark Strong as Doctor Sivana, Djimon Hounsou as The Wizard, Grace Fulton as Mary Bromfield, Jack Dylan Grazer as Freddy Freeman, Ian Chen as Eugene Choi, and Jovan Armand as Pedro Peña. Shazam tells the story of Billy Batson, a foster kid who is randomly chosen to become Shazam’s new champion. With his powers, Shazam can transform into an adult superhero by saying “SHAZAM!” He must learn how to use his powers and work with his new foster family to stop Doctor Sivana from taking over the world. Zachary Levi was perfect for the role of Shazam and I loved the chemistry between him and Asher Angel. The action scenes were also awesome and I liked that it didn’t take itself too seriously.
What is the Release date of Shazam?
The Shazam release date is April 2019. Shazam was originally scheduled to come out on July 27, 2018 but Shazam! has been pushed back due to the release of Aquaman. Shazam is a 2019 American superhero film based on the DC Comics character Shazam (also known as Captain Marvel). It is intended to be the seventh installment in the DC Extended Universe and a reboot of New Line Cinema’s Shazam series. The Shazam movie score by Benjamin Wallfisch will also be released on April 19th, 2019. The song “Everyday” from Bastille featuring rapper Logic appears in trailers for this upcoming blockbuster hit and I can’t wait until it gets released.

Who is the Cast in Shazam?
Shazam! marks the title character’s debut in the DCEU. Shazam is a young boy named Billy who can transform into an adult superhero by saying Shazam, which takes you to the Shazam movie site where there are additional cast members and other information about this 2019 film release. Shazam is played by Asher Angel and Zachary Levi. The rest of the cast includes Mark Strong, Jack Dylan Grazer, Djimon Hounsou, Grace Fulton, Faithe Herman, Ian Chen, and Jovan Armand. Shazam! also stars Cooper Andrews and Marta Milans who play Victor and Rosa Vasquez respectively.
What is the story of Shazam?
Shazam is about young Billy Batson who can transform into Shazam with the use of a magic word. Shazam was actually an old man named Shazam, but after he passed away his name was given to Billy as mentor and friend. Shazam’s mission is for him to help guide young Billy on how best to use his powers; in addition, Shazam will also team up against Doctor Sivana (Mark Strong). The film draws inspiration from Superman comics by Jerry Ordway, where it had the same origin story of being sent away from home at age 12 only now using subway tokens instead of phone booths. The Shazam! movie is set to release in April 2019. The trailer looks good and the cast seems like they will do a great job with the characters. Shazam! is one of those DC comics that I wasn’t too familiar with so it’ll be nice to see how this film turns out.
Shazam! is not the only DC film coming out next year. Wonder Woman 1984 will be released in November 2019, and Birds of Prey (And The Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn) which stars Margot Robbie as Harley Quinn, Mary Elizabeth Winstead as Huntress, Jurnee Smollett-Bell as Black Canary, and Rosie Perez as Renee Montoya; it’s currently set to release on February 2020. Shazam! It will be a great addition to the Shazam series that has been going since 1939 when he was created by Bill Parker and C.C. Beck for Fawcett Comics’ Whiz Comics #25 . Shazam!’ history goes back even further.
