With Shazam! coming to theaters the month after Marvel Studios’ Captain Marvel, there have been many fans comparing the two upcoming films. It even led to Zachary Levi urging fans to stop with the comparisons, saying that both movies can exist without hating on one another. In other news, we have director David F. Sandberg posting on Twitter an “Upload in Progress” image, signaling to fans that a new trailer for Shazam! is coming out on Monday, March 4th.

Sandberg has tweeted an image of a file being uploaded. He says, “Upload in progress… Trailer Monday.” It’s a fun little image, but the smartass in me wants to say, how big is the file, and why is it going to take 3 days for it to finish uploading? Hmmm?

Synopsis: Billy Batson is a streetwise 14-year-old who can magically transform into the adult superhero Shazam simply by shouting out one word. His newfound powers soon get put to the test when he squares off against the evil Dr. Thaddeus Sivana.

The film is directed by David Sandberg, who’s known for directing horror films like Lights Out and Annabelle: Creation, and written by Henry Gayden from a story by Henry Gayden and Darren Lemke.

It stars Asher Angel and Zachary Levi as William “Billy” Batson/Shazam, Mark Strong as Dr. Thaddeus Sivana, Jack Dylan Grazer as Frederick “Freddy” Freeman, Grace Fulton as Mary Bromfield, Ian Chen as Eugene Choi, Jovan Armand as Pedro Peña, Faithe Herman as Darla Dudley, Cooper Andrews as Victor Vasquez, Marta Milans as Rosa Vasquez, and Djimon Hounsou (Marvel’s Captain Marvel, Aquaman) as Shazam.

Shazam! is based on the DC comic book character created by Bill Parker and C. C. Beck in 1939, so he’s a character that’s been around for a while. His powers include flight, superhuman strength, and lightning.

Shazam! flies into theaters on April 5, 2019.
