He missed it by that much! In the new trailer for “Shazam!” Zachary Levi tests out some of his classic superhero abilities, like being able to leap tall buildings in a single bound.

He can jump! But maybe not that high. Ouch.

The long-awaited second trailer for “Shazam!” gives a fuller sense of this quirky DC Comics origin story, with a 14-year-old boy (Asher Angel) acquiring superpowers from an ancient wizard (Djimon Hounsou) to transform into the adult superhero Shazam (Zachary Levi). Here’s more of the official logline:

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 (Mark Strong).

We also got a longer look at Strong’s villain in this latest trailer and how the growing pains of Shazam’s powers create some bigger problems.

“You electrocuted a bus and then almost killed those people,” Shazam’s teenage friend says. “And then I caught it!!”

“Shazam!” opens April 5 in theaters and on IMAX.
