Blade Runner 2049 Composer Benjamin Wallfisch Will Score Shazam! Movie

Billy Batson

The Shazam! movie is in great hands as Benjamin Wallfisch has been revealed to score the movie.

In the past few weeks, marketing for the Shazam! movie started and we officially got a full length trailer at comic-con last week.

Now it has been revealed that Blade Runner 2049 composer Benjamin Wallfisch will handle the movie’s score and soundtrack.


This will be the composer’s third time collaborating with director David F. Sandberg. This follows their work on Sandberg’s last two horror films, Annabelle: Creation and Lights Out.

Wallfisch has found much success over the past few years, gaining critical acclaim for his work on It and Blade Runner 2049. His latest work, which could be heard on The Darkest Minds, will hit theaters in August.
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).
