Warner Bros. has set a release date for DC’s Shazam! on Blu-ray and revealed the special features that’ll be included.
WB Home Entertainment has announced that Shazam! will become available on Digital in about five weeks on Tuesday, July 2, before it releases on Blu-ray and other home video formats two weeks later on July 16.
The Blu-ray special features will include a gag reel and deleted scenes, as well as an exclusive Shazam! motion comic and featurettes titled “The Magical World of Shazam”, ‘Super Fun Zac”, Carnival Scene Study, Shazamily Values”, and “Shazamily Values”.
We all have a superhero inside us, it just takes a bit of magic to bring it out. In Billy Batson’s (Asher Angel) case, by shouting out one word—SHAZAM!—this streetwise 14-year-old foster kid can turn into the adult superhero Shazam (Zachary Levi), courtesy of an ancient wizard. Still a kid at heart—inside a ripped, godlike body—Shazam revels in this adult version of himself by doing what any teen would do with superpowers: have fun with them! Can he fly? Does he have X-ray vision? Can he shoot lightning out of his hands? Can he skip his social studies test? Shazam sets out to test the limits of his abilities with the joyful recklessness of a child. But he’ll need to master these powers quickly in order to fight the deadly forces of evil controlled by Dr. Thaddeus Sivana (Mark Strong).
As for when Shazam! 2 could arrive: WB currently has two DCEU movies scheduled to open every year from 2020-2022 (following Super Pet‘s recent delay), but that could change, depending on how quickly the next Shazam! adventure comes together.
