Reported 'Shazam' Trailer 2 Description Includes Several Nods to Batman and Superman

A rumored description of the second trailer for the Shazam movie has surfaced online, revealing several nods to Batman and Superman to be featured in the trailer.

According to SuperBroMovies, the trailer will be released in mid-January. Ahead of that debut, the site has reportedly been provided with a description of what will happen in the trailer.

Here’s the description:

“The trailer kicks off with Billy eating dinner with his foster family, where Cooper Andrews’ Victor Vazquez reveals a costumed hero has appeared in Philidelphia. We then cut to a montage of clips from the first trailer before the WB, New Line, and DC logos grace the screen.

From there we go back to dinner and are introduced to Darla Dudley and Pedro Peña, the latter of which makes fun of Shazam’s costume. Next, we revisit the Wizard’s lair, where we see Billy, once again, acquire his powers.

Freddy and Billy then begin brainstorming hero names, without much success. Cut to Billy attempting to fly from above the clouds. As he begins to fall at an accelerated rate, our titular hero begins to channel Superman and catches himself right before crashing back to earth. Shazam then realizes that he can indeed fly.

To follow up that incredible clip, Mark Strong’s Dr. Sivana finally makes his debut in the trailer. He and Shazam begin to fight mid-air, as we cut to a child playing with Superman and Batman action figures. The two heavyweights collide as the toys do the same, and might I add, the kid was humming the 1978 Superman theme, which was a highlight of the trailer.

Another montage of scenes from the first trailer ensues before we cut to Freddy and Shazam at a real estate office, where they are attempting to find a “lair.” They are asking if there are any castles available, preferably overlooking some water. To conclude the trailer, we get a look at the Marvel Family (depowered) confronting Billy about him being Shazam intercut with some action clips.

Right before the logo hits, we see Sivana ask Shazam how old he is, to which Billy replies 'basically 15.' We then see a new shot of Billy transforming into the titular hero while jumping off a building.

Finally, what you’ve all been waiting for, the stinger. It starts off with Sivana tackling Shazam into a toy store. Billy then proceeds to throw a large Batman toy at the villain, which misses to great comedic effect. Shazam then ends up on a large scale piano as the two fight, which is obviously an homage to Big, which this movie took inspiration from.”

Does this sound like a good trailer to you? Let us know in the comments!
