‘Shazam!’ Trailer Debuted At SDCC 2018, Could This Be DC’s PG-Rated Answer To ‘Deadpool’

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).

The movie doesn’t take itself too seriously and just imagines what a kid would do if he had superhero powers. The newest DCEU film could be attempting to be a PG-rated answer to the massively successful Deadpool.
