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 Super Hero Shazam (Zachary Levi), courtesy of an ancient wizard.

Aquaman's lush sub-marine world, crammed to the (ahem) gills with life and energy, makes the ideal setting for a film director James Wan told the Warner Bros.

This superhero movie is very much a comedy and looks to take the series in a totally new direction.

Shazam is an upcoming movie in the DC Extended Universe which follows a superhero of the same name.

Saturday afternoon at Comic-Con, Warner Bros. finally revealed the hotly anticipated trailer and it feels par the course with everything else that's come out of the DC wing of WB. Today at Comic-Con, Wan and Momoa debuted the new trailer for Aquaman, and if you forgot that Nicole Kidman was in this movie, consider today a pertinent reminder. On top of that, there was a trailer for next year's Godzilla: King of the Monsters, and also the promise of a return to the Wizarding World.

"I wanted to create a superhero film that we've never quite seen before".

GE, which has been selling and splitting off businesses, also cut its forecast for how much cash its businesses will generate. The White House has also itemized $200 billion of additional Chinese imports that it said may be subject to tariffs.

Up next was "Lego Movie 2" with sit-com support actor turned in-demand megastar Chris Pratt, who plays Star-Lord in the "Guardians of the Galaxy" movies. Sandberg says over 100 actors went out for the part but, "When I saw his first tape, it was just flawless".

Chris Pratt (at left next to Elizabeth Banks) did not address James Gunn's absence even though the two worked together on Guardians of the Galaxy. Shazam is helmed by David Sandberg, who is known more for his horror films.

Of all the films being showcased at Comic-Con, "Aquaman" had some of the biggest advance buzz.

Other topics discussed included Law's hot Dumbledore, and what they'd use Harry Potter magic for.

Johnny Depp, who plays Grindelwald, also made a surprise appearance in costume and character. In all of my renderings, I drew you.
