The new DC superhero movie Shazam! is out in cinemas this April, and we're giving you a sneak peek at a featurette about the main character.

Directed by Annabelle: Creation's David F. Sandberg, Shazam! is the origin story of the titular superhero. 

14-year-old streetwise foster kid Billy Batson (Asher Angel) can turn into the adult superhero Shazam (Zachary Levi) simply by shouting one word: "SHAZAM!"

Still a kid at heart inside a superhero body - Shazam revels in this adult version of himself by doing what any teen would do with superpowers: have fun with them!

Take a look at a featurette about the character below and become acquainted with the lovable superhero.

Shazam! is released in cinemas in Ireland on Friday, April 5.
