On Jan. 20, Warner Bros. released a new trailer for the movie Shazam! It’s just under a minute long and underscores that audiences won’t be getting another dark and gritty superhero movie.
By its nature, the Shazam! intellectual property is light-hearted. It features a kid who is able to transform into an adult superhero.
Some people have complained about the serious nature of recent superhero movies, particularly those coming out of the DC Comics library of characters. So Shazam! would seem to be an answer to those complaints.
The Shazam! premiere date is rapidly approaching. It’s scheduled to open on April 5.
