The new teaser trailer for DC’s Shazam! has some cool new footage. It also makes it very clear that “he’s not so serious”, unlike the rest of the DCEU characters.
From the The Big Red Cheese’s first trailer already, it was clear that DC was heading in a completely new direction with Shazam!. Call it a Marvel rip-off, call it a breath of fresh air, call it what you like, but never mock his suit. The director, David F. Sandberg, and actor Zachary Levi have been very vocal about defending the superheroes classic look. Although there have been a number of complaints from fans across the world, DC has stuck to their guns. However, The World’s Mightiest Mortal does look incredibly cool in the new trailer.
Is the “he’s not so serious” a dig at the rest of the DCEU characters? Probably. Warner has always been open to laughing at their own mistakes. And, to be honest, Shazam!, which is full-on comedic send-up of the superhero genre, looks like a hell of a lot of fun – even if it sometimes feels a bit Deadpool-ish.
The new trailer is proof that it will be a good time at the cinema.
