Zachary Levi seems to be promoting a totally different Warner Bros. franchise in new ‘Shazam! Fury of the Gods’ featurette

Er, this is supposed to be a DC movie, isn't it?

Shazam! Fury of the Gods, the next movie to come from the DC universe, is just days away from releasing worldwide, but unfortunately it’s tracking for the weakest box office opening in the entire franchise. In a curious move, then, Warner Bros. seems to be making a last-ditch effort to drum up some extra interest in the superhero sequel by attempting to borrow some cues from another of the studio’s (failed, it has to be said) series, the Fantastic Beasts movies.

In this new featurette, which you can see above, Zachary Levi does his best impression of Eddie Redmayne’s Newt Scamander by listing the various mythological creatures who’ll be showing up in Fury of the Gods, ranging from minotaurs to cyclops. We guess with one TV spot spoiling the film’s big DCEU crossover cameo, which seriously angered director David F. Sandberg, the marketing has already blown the big ace up its sleeve so is now reduced to picking up some points from Potterheads.
