Strange bit of news. We got first glimpse of Shazam star Zachary Levi in his full costume. From behind. Reddit user vivaelsam posted a photo of Levi in costume as Shazam, sporting the character’s iconic red suit – equipped with gold boots, belt, and wrist gauntlets – as well as the cream-colored cape. Levi also has the Shazam hairstyle he teased on social media last week. Take a look at the photo below:
A more than accurate look for the DC superhero, just an odd first picture. That if we didn’t know better, could be confused as an elaborate cosplay. Shazam follows the story of young Billy Batson who discovers a wizard who bestows the power of Shazam on him. With just a word this child becomes the adult sized superhero Shazam!
Director David F. Sandberg (Lights Out) Shazam is expected to blast into theaters on April 5th, 2019.
