A new Shazam! clip courtesy of Fandango shows off how Billy Batson discovers that his powers come from saying the word, “Shazam.”

The clip begins with Freddy Freeman and Zachary Levi’s Shazam sneaking into their house trying to elude their foster parents. And for good reason. Billy is wearing a giant red suit with a lightning bolt on his chest with a white cape! That would definitely freak out any parent.

They discover Billy’s powers are triggered by saying the word “Shazam” when he’s trying to explain to his foster sister why he’s an adult.

The clip mixes in some humor as Billy’s Dad tries to figure out why the entire house went dark when he was putting up the Christmas tree lights.

The clip is used to promote Fandango’s exclusive promotion to see Shazam! two weeks before it officially opens in April on March 23rd.

Shazam! stars Zachary Levi as Captain Marvel, Djimon Hounsou as the wizard Shazam, Mark Strong as the villainous Dr. Thaddeus Sivana, Jack Dylan Grazer as Freddy Freeman, Asher Angel as Billy Batson, Grace Fulton as Mary Bromfield, Marta Milans as Rosa Vasquez, and Cooper Andrews as Victor Vasquez.

Shazam! is directed by David F. Sandberg based off a screenplay by Henry Gayden. Captain Marvel aka Shazam was created by Bill Parker and C.C. Beck.
