Shazam!‘s arrival is getting closer and closer, although many fans took advantage of Fandango’s preview screenings this weekend. The rest of us will have to wait until April 5 to see the movie for ourselves. However, to tide everyone over, New Line and Warner Bros. have released a new preview that features Zachary Levi’s Shazam squaring off with Mark Strong’s Dr. Sivana. Along the way, Shazam/Billy discovers that he can fly.

Here’s the official description of the film:
“We all have a superhero inside us, it just takes a bit of magic to bring it out. In Billy Batson’s (Angel) case, by shouting out one word—SHAZAM!—this streetwise 14-year-old foster kid can turn into the adult Super Hero Shazam (Levi), courtesy of an ancient wizard. Still a kid at heart—inside a ripped, godlike body—Shazam revels in this adult version of himself by doing what any teen would do with superpowers: have fun with them! Can he fly? Does he have X-ray vision? Can he shoot lightning out of his hands? Can he skip his social studies test? Shazam sets out to test the limits of his abilities with the joyful recklessness of a child. But he’ll need to master these powers quickly in order to fight the deadly forces of evil controlled by Dr. Thaddeus Sivana (Strong).”
Shazam! soars into theaters on April 5. You can watch the preview scene below. Then let us know what you think about it in the comment section below!
