Over the last few years, DC has come under fire for being too serious and too dark. Well, it looks like Shazam is about to change all of that. The first trailer is very playful, light and full of humour. Actually, it’s pretty similar to the films created by “the other side”.
As you can see from the trailer below, it looks fun and very different from what we’ve seen before. There is definitely a stronger Marvel influence on the film’s style.
Directed by David F. Sandberg, the film also stars Mark Strong as the villain Dr Silva and Djimon Hounsou as the Wizard that grants Billy his powers.
