And I love it!
|This is how Shazam and Billy Batson looked in the 1940s and '50s comic books.|
Of course, there’s some bait-and-switch here in this trailer. The first minute or so delivers footage from what looks like will be yet another movie with yawn-inducing, cliché-ridden scenes of a troubled, teenage foster boy who steals cars (0:06) and is placed with a foster family. But then we start having fun.
There are a few early moments of levity. Once the wizard Shazam chooses Billy Batson (Asher Angel) to be his champion (1:06-1:13) and Billy snickers at his name (1:31), the fun starts.
