Shazam! Ropes In Blade Runner 2049 Composer Benjamin Wallfisch To Score The Film

The hype for Warner Bros. and DC Films Shazam! movie continues to grow among audiences of all ages especially after the film’s first trailer was rolled out at the San Diego Comic-Con 2018’s Hall H stage this weekend.

A new report coming from Film Music Reporter (H/T Comic Book Movie) suggests Shazam! makers have roped in Anabelle: Creation composer Benjamin Wallfisch to score music for the film. Shazam! will reportedly be Wallfisch’s third collaboration with director David F. Sandberg. The two have already worked together on Anabelle: Creation and Lights Out.

Wallfisch gained critical acclaim for his work on It and Blade Runner 2049. His next film, The Darkest Minds, is set to hit theaters next month.

Talking more about Shazam!, the film’s first trailer offered a glimpse of how teenager Billy Batson gets the powers to transform into an adult superhero by just uttering the magical word. From the looks of it, it seems Billy is completely clueless about the powers that he has been bestowed by the ancient Wizard played by Djmon Hounsou. The only person he heads to seek help is his friend Freedy Freeman, played by Jack Dylan Grazer.

Freeman, who is a big DC superhero fan, helps Billy in getting to know his newfound abilities. He makes his superhero friend punch through a wall in order to test out his super strength and asks him to attempt a flight to check his flying abilities.

Actor Zachary Levi has perfectly managed to woo audiences in his Shazam! avatar trying to do all sort of funny things that are expected from a teenager boy. The trailer just features a single shot of Mark Strong as the film’s main antagonist Doctor Thadius Sivana facing off Shazam.  Dr. Sivana is a notorious mastermind who wants to gain Shazam’s magical powers to fulfill his wicked purposes.

Shazam! is scheduled to hit theaters on April 9, 2019.
