A photo from the set of DC’s Shazam! has given us our first look at Zachary Levi in costume, as the titular hero.
David F. Sandberg’s Shazam! is currently filming, with Asher Angel starring as Billy Batson, the young boy whose superpowers transform him into adult superhero, Shazam, to be played by Zachary Levi. Though an official look at either of the lead characters has yet to be released, we’ve now got a glimpse of Levi, thanks to a photo from the production’s set.
Reddit user vivaelsam posted the photo of Levi sporting the character’s iconic suit – complete with cape, and super hairdo:
Last week, Sandberg claimed that the official Shazam suit reveal was “right around the corner” and would likely arrive sooner, were photos of Levi on set leaked to the public. Now that this has happened, it’s seems likely that Warner Bros. and DC Films will be forced to release the official pictures.
What is clear from this photo, is that the film’s costume designers and hair and makeup team have succeed in bringing to life the image of a superhero that has come straight from the imagination of a child. The picture also suggests that at least some of the film will be taking place around Christmas, as they appear to be in a mall that’s decked out for the holidays.
Shazam! is set for release on April 5th, 2019.
