Being a superhero is every kid's dream, and Warner Bros explore that in the first official trailer for Shazam, which brings a joyous focus on childhood nostalgia. Taking homage from John Hughes movies, it seems like the DCEU is bringing some needed charm for the table.

Rather than being a dark depressing outing, Shazam! Looks to be exploring the legend of our red spandex wearing wizard in new ways. Billy Batson (Asher Angel) seems to be in awe of his new powers, but can he save the world? See the trailer below.

We all have a superhero inside us, it just takes a bit of magic to bring it out. In Billy Batson’s case, by shouting out one word—SHAZAM!—this streetwise 14-year-old foster kid can turn into the adult Super Hero Shazam, 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.

Starring Zachary Levi, Asher Angel, Mark Strong, Grace Fulton, Jack Dylan Grazer, Ian Chen, Jovan Armand, Faithe Herman and Djimon Hounsou, the film is released April 5, in the UK and the U.S..
