First Official Look at Zachary Levi Suited Up as SHAZAM!

Entertainment Weekly has DC fans' first official look at actor Zachary Levi in full superhero attire as the title role in SHAZAM!

“I wanted to keep the shorter cape as a throwback to the original because that’s something that sets him apart from Superman or Batman,” director David Sandberg tells EW. “It makes him feel a bit more Golden Age superhero, which is the vibe I’m going for.”


"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)."

With San Diego Comic-Con International 2018 next week there surely more to come about SHAZAM! as perhaps its first teaser trailer will finally be revealed.

SHAZAM! releases in the U.S. on April 5, 2019.
