Rumour has it that the first trailer for DC’s Shazam! will be debuting at San Diego Comic-Con next month.
Warner Bros’ Hall H presentation is set to be bigger than ever at SDCC 2018, with the first trailer for James Wan’s Aquaman to be unveiled, as well as the expectation that Patty Jenkins will unveil something new from the in-production Wonder Woman 1984. And given how many other DC films are in the works right now, there’s plenty of opportunity for more surprises to show up at the presentation.
David F. Sandberg’s Shazam! is set for release around four months after Aquaman, meaning that its own marketing campaign may begin in or around December this year. According to the latest rumour, the first footage from Shazam! will be shown publicly, alongside the Aquaman trailer.
Splash Report’s Kellvin Chavez has revealed that his sources have informed him that the first Shazam! trailer will be shown at July’s SDCC. Production on the film wrapped in May, so it’s not completely beyond the realm of reason for us to expect that we’ll be getting some kind of footage next month. Whether footage will be available to the public afterwards is another story, but at least we might be able to get a taste of what we can expect from the tone of the film.
Sandberg’s film will easily be the most comedic DC film to date, as the first official image of actor Zachary Levi in the titular character’s costume has already teased:
Warner Bros. have a lot of work to do to keep up the good post-Justice League buzz, so showing off a little of their most highly-anticipated projects is definitely the way to go.
