Yesterday, Warner Bros. unveiled an extended TV spot for Shazam! which was packed with new footage from the DC superhero blockbuster. Among the shots was a brief glimpse of some rather monstrous looking statues, which seemingly gave us our first look at the Seven Deadly Sins, a.k.a. The Seven Deadly Enemies of Man. And in case you missed them, director David F. Sandberg has now taken to Instagram to provide us with a closer look…
For those unfamiliar, The Seven Deadly Sins – Pride, Envy, Greed, Anger, Sloth, Gluttony and Lust – are seven powerful demons who were captured by the wizard Shazam and imprisoned in stone statues (presumably the ones we see above) although of course they have been known to escape captivity on numerous occasions.
With a new trailer for Shazam! expected to arrive at some point today, perhaps we’ll get a glimpse of the demonic beasts in action.
We all have a superhero inside us, it just takes a bit of magic to bring it out. In Billy Batson’s (Asher Angel) case, by shouting out one word—SHAZAM!—this streetwise 14-year-old foster kid can turn into the adult Super Hero Shazam (Zachary 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 (Mark Strong).
Shazam will see Zachary Levi starring as the titular superhero, with Asher Angel as his young alter-ego Billy Batson, Jack Dylan Grazer as Freddy Freeman, Ian Chen as Eugene Choi, Jovan Armand as Pedro Peña, Grace Fulton as Mary Marvel, Cooper Andrews as Victor Vasquez, Faithe Herman as Darla Dudley, Mark Strong as Dr. Thaddeus Sivana, Djimon Hounsou as the Wizard, Adam Brody as Freddie Freeman, Ross Butler as Eugene Choi, D. J. Cotrona as Pedro Pena, Meagan Good as Darla Dudley, and Michelle Borth as Mary Bromfield. The film is set for release on April 5th 2019.
