At some point in time the DC film universe had to stop being dark and brooding. And it looks like that time is now. The cast and crew of SHAZAM! were at San Diego Comic-Con to prove that the DC Extended Universe is not all doom and gloom with the first trailer for the film.
It looks fun, humorous, and it has plenty of laughs. Check out the first trailer for SHAZAM!, below.
If you saw the first unofficial image of Zachary Levi filming Shazam! you understand why some fans may have been disappointed by it. The actor will play the superpowered title hero in the upcoming film that is set to hit theaters next year.
While the film is still in production, Warner Bros. has released a slight tease ahead of the film’s big debut at San Diego Comic-Con 2018. So sit back and grab a soda, because you might need it after seeing the first official look at the film. Check it out below.
Things are progressing rather quickly for Shazam! Just days after the film confirmed Zachary Levi to play the title hero, there are reports that Mark Strong is in talks to play the film’s villain. Of course, as some of you know, it’s not going to be Black Adam, as Dwayne Johnson will be playing him in a standalone film.
According to reports, Strong is in talks to play Doctor Sivana, who has had run-ins with Shazam before. More on the story below.

All the possessed portraits, toys, and haunted spirits we’ve seen in James Wan‘s Conjuring films leaves plenty of room for world building. As such spinoffs are released to expand upon that world, though it has been met with mixed results. For one thing, Annabelle: while a commercial success, the spinoff was a critical disappointment. But studios are more concerned with the former, so of course, we’re going to get a continuation of that poorly received spinoff.
But here is the surprising thing about Annabelle: Creation, it’s actually pretty good. Lights Out director David F. Sandberg‘s latest effort uses all the traditional horror tropes that deliver plenty of chills and thrills. But because it uses all those familiar elements, it all suffers from the same pitfalls. Still, it is a prequel spinoff that gets the job done, and really, that’s all you could ask for. Check out my full review below.
Warner Bros. has found its director for Shazam!, and they didn’t have to look too far. According to a new report, Annabelle: Creation director David F. Sandberg will be the one to helm the movie, which appears to be set to begin production either in January or February of next year.
But that isn’t the only announcement surrounding the film. More on the story below.
