The superhero tale follows street-wise Billy Batson (Asher Angel), a 14-year-old boy who has recently been placed into a new foster family...

When Billy defends Freddy against some dick-ish bullies, he proves his worth and is chosen as the "Champion" to possess the powers of Shazam, an ancient wizard.

These powers enable Billy to turn into an adult, god-like superhero (Zachary Levi). Basically, think Tom Hanks' character in Big...except with super powers.

Shazam's abilities range from strength to flight to BEING LITERALLY BULLETPROOF.

Honestly, this first trailer is funny as all heck, and I've watched it a solid million times since it premiered this afternoon.
