Pictures today confirmed the Shazam release date will be April 5, 2019.
That being said, they seem to have a charming take on the material, and with Shazam! opening in April, it's not like Warner Bros' is banking its summer slate on the movie. To The Movies is now scheduled for that date. "Shazam!" centers on DC Comics character Billy Batson (Levi) who becomes Captain Marvel, the world's mightiest mortal, when he says the magic word "Shazam!".
Picking the Best Potential Tottenham Starting Lineup to Face Everton on Saturday
Fifth-placed Tottenham moved to 44 points and are level with Liverpool who take on league leaders Manchester City on Sunday. Tottenham will look to close-in on the top four with a win when they take on Everton at Wembley on Saturday evening .
The name Shazam is an acronym of the ancient gods and historical figures Solomon, Hercules, Atlas, Zeus, Achilles, and Mercury. Disney Channel star Asher Angel (Andi Mack) will play the young version of Batson. Filming is expected to start next month with David F. Sandberg serving behind the lens.
The film will be scripted by Henry Gayden and Darren Lemke. Peter Safran will produce.
