With Aquaman’s record-breaking box office numbers, the DC Extended Universe is riding a high wave of cash. As the underwater epic soon makes its way out of theaters and to home release, it appears the movie will be helping along the DCEU’s next installment, Shazam! with an exclusive sneak peek of the movie within Aquaman’s bonus features.

Details of the German DVD release of Aquaman recently surfaced, and a three-and-a-half minute “Shazam Sneak Peek” was listed, per a recent tweet from Anton Volkov of Trailer Track.
This is exhilarating news! The idea of purchasing Aquaman on Blu-ray, DVD or Digital just got a lot easier if the final release will actually give fans an inside look into the next DCEU movie.
This also means Aquaman will likely get a home release sometime in March, since Shazam! comes to theaters on April 5, and having a sneak peek doesn’t exactly make sense when it comes out after the film is already in theaters.
While Shazam! shares the same world with Aquaman, there isn’t anticipated to be much of a connection between the two movies, as both are focused on telling the origin story of superheroes on the big screen for the first time ever.

The forthcoming film will follow a 14-year-old orphan named Billy Batson (Asher Angel) who is selected by a Wizard to become “Shazam!”, an adult superhero who he transform into by shouting his name.
Zachary Levi stars as the muscular, big-boy hero version of Billy, who looks like he has an explosion being a hero with his friend Freddy (Jack Dylan Grazer) before they encounter supervillain Doctor Sivana (Mark Strong).
