Check Out The Shazam! Entertainment Weekly Cover

The upcoming DC superhero film Shazam! has landed on the cover of Entertainment Weekly, featuring Zachary Levi bringing out his inner child. The issue will be handed out for free at San Diego Comic Con.

We all have a superhero inside us, it just takes a bit of magic to bring it out. In Billy Batson’s (Angel) case, by shouting out one word—SHAZAM!—this streetwise 14-year-old foster kid can turn into the adult Super Hero Shazam (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 (Strong).

The cast includes Asher Angel (Andi Mack) as Billy Batson, Djimon Hounsou (Guardians of the Galaxy) as The Wizard, and Mark Strong (Kingsman) in the role of Super-Villain Dr. Thaddeus Sivana. The film also stars Jack Dylan Grazer (IT) as Billy’s best friend and ultimate superhero enthusiast, Freddy, part of the foster family that includes Mary, played by Grace Fulton (Annabelle: Creation); Darla, played by Faithe Herman (This is Us); Eugene, played by Ian Chen (Fresh Off the Boat); and Pedro, played by Jovan Armand (Hawaii Five-0). Cooper Andrews (The Walking Dead) and Marta Milans (Killer Women) play foster parents Victor and Rosa Vasquez.

David F. Sandberg is directing for New Line Cinema. The Lights Out and Annabelle: Creation director will step behind the camera with Peter Safran producing. Henry Gayden and Darren Lemke wrote the script for Shazam!

Created in 1939 by artist C. C. Beck and writer Bill Parker, Shazam first appeared in Fawcett Comics’ Whiz Comics #2. By saying the world “Shazam,” teenager Billy Batson was transformed into the “world’s mightiest mortal” and given extraordinary abilities by ancient gods.

Shazam! will debut in theaters on April 5, 2019.

Get A First Look At Aquaman In This Week’s Issue of Entertainment Weekly

This week’s Entertainment Weekly cover story is on the highly anticipated stand-alone Aquaman movie starring Jason Momoa.

Aquaman is Warner Bros. and DC’s biggest swing yet, betting huge on a character who was mocked in pop culture for decades. Tapping hulking Game of Thrones star Momoa to introduce a fresh take on the half-Atlantean, half-human Arthur Curry across two previous superhero ensemble films was merely the first step. The next was tapping acclaimed director James Wan (The Conjuring, Insidious, Furious 7) to deliver a fantasy film coming Dec. 21 that’s unlike any we’ve seen before.

Behind The Scenes of TIME’s Drones Cover 

To front its June 11 issue with the coverline “The Drone Age,” now on newsstands, TIME magazine collaborated with Intel to send a massive fleet of 958 drones skyward and into precise formation to form the newsweekly’s logo and trademark red border. The drones were then shot by another drone, also suspended in midair.

The result was one of the biggest drone shows ever produced in the U.S., so of course it drew some attention. One Folsom, Calif., resident interviewed by a local news reporter recounted, “Up in the sky, I saw the future.”

Deadpool 2 Is The Filthy, Foulmouthed Sequel You’ve Been Waiting For

Ryan Reynolds is Deadpool and the focus of this week’s Entertainment Weekly cover story.

Deadpool 2, opening May 18, finds the titular red-suited assassin otherwise known as Wade Wilson battling time traveler Cable (Josh Brolin); protecting a fire-wielding mutant youth named Russell (Hunt for the Wilderpeople’s Julian Dennison); assembling a motley crew of mutants he calls X-Force, an offshoot of the X-Men; and encountering a smorgasbord of superhero and celebrity cameos. Says Reynolds, “The first movie is a love story masquerading as a comic book movie, and this one is kind of a family film masquerading as a comic book film again.”

Mad Magazine’s New Look Revealed at WonderCon 2018

Fans in attendance at WonderCon 2018 in Anaheim, California got a tease of what the revamped Mad Magazine will look like.

After 66 years as a comedy institution, MAD Magazine is undergoing substantial change. The magazine will reboot to issue #1 after issue #549. 30 year editor John Ficarra retired and the magazine will now be steered by illustrator and comic book artist Bill Morrison. Also, after many, many years in Manhattan (first on Madison ave and then on Broadway), the magazine shifted offices to California. 

MAD was created by Harvey Kurtzman and published by Bill Gaines in 1952 under the EC comics imprint. EC remained the publisher until Gaines sold it to Kinney Parking Company in the 60s. Through a series of mergers and acquisitions, the company eventually fell under the DC Comics umbrella and has remained there since.

MAD #1 will go on sale April 18, 2018.
