A new international trailer has been released online for Warner Bros. and DC’s Shazam!. You can check out the new trailer in the player below.

The new trailer features a couple gag referencing other DC Universe heroes. There’s one involving a kid playing with some Batman and Superman figures while Shazam is fighting Dr. Thaddeus Sivana. Another joke references last year’s hit movie, Aquaman. Billy Batson, as Shazam, says, “I can’t talk to fish. What can we do with that that’s cool?” His sidekick, Freddy, replies, “Maybe command an army of billions in the ocean,” while tugging on his Aquamn shirt. Shazam then replies, “Oh yeah.”

The latest DC film adaptation releases on April 5. The film stars Zachary Levi, Mark Strong, Asher Angel, Jack Dylan Grazer, Djimon Hounsou, Faithe Herman, Grace Fulton, Ian Chen, Jovan Armand, Marta Milans, and Cooper Andrews. Here’s a synopsis:

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).
