If you ever thought a dope premise for a film would be "Big, but for superheroes," DC's Shazam! is the film for you. In the film, which hits theaters on April 5, a 14-year-old boy (played by Asher Angel) is granted superpowers by a wizard after visiting another dimension on a subway ride (sounds wild, but rock with us). All he has to do is say SHAZAM! and he turns into an adult superhero (played by Zachary Levi). It's like every teen boy's dream come to life, right?

Thing is, there's a learning curve, which we see in the exclusive clip up above. It's one thing to gain the powers of a now have to learn how to use them. As you see up above, Billy's now been transformed into Shazam, but has his foster brother Freddy (played by Jack Dylan Grazer) helping him try and understand how his powers work. Sure, throwing a fist in the air and "Supermaning it" sounds easy enough, but doesn't always work out properly in execution.

Catch the full, hilarious pic up above, and be sure to hit theaters on April 5 to see Shazam!. A full synopsis of the film is below.

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).
