Wondering how entwined in the DCEU 2019’s Shazam! will be? In a word: Very. Chatting with Rotten Tomatoes ahead of the Warner Bros. Comic-Con panel on Saturday, star Zachary Levi revealed that the new movie – which had its trailer debut today – sits at the very center of the DCEU, and is a world in which kids grow up watching Batman and Superman on the news. Asher Angel, who plays Billy Batson (the kid who becomes heroic by saying that magic word), Jack Dylan Grazer, and director David F. Sandberg were also on hand to divulge more secrets about what looks to be the lightest DC offering yet.

Shazam! is in theaters April 5, 2019
