Shazam! costume concept artist Jerad S. Marantz has revealed an illustration of an alternate suit for Adam Brody’s adult Freddy Freeman for the Zachary Levi film.
During the final battle of the Shazam! movie, Zachary Levi’s titular hero shared his powers with his foster siblings to help take down Mark Strong’s villainous Dr. Sivana and his underlings. As a result, the Marvel Family was born and Adam Brody was tasked with portraying Freddy Freeman’s adult superhero alter-ego.
Now, Marantz has taken to his official Instagram account to share an alternate suit for Adam Brody’s superhero, which the artist notes may have different lines than the final version featured in the film. In the caption, Marantz explains that settling on the costume design for Adam Brody and the rest of the Shazam family actors went quickly after they locked the suit for Zachary Levi.
Check out the concept art for Adam Brody’s costume in Shazam! movie below.

Freddy #shazam suite concept art for the movie. The lines in the suit may be a little different from what showed up on screen. I think the final version of this suit was just a blue version of Billy’s suit. Can’t remember at the moment. Once the Shazam Suit was locked in, doing the rest of the family went pretty quickly. #shazamfamily #captanmarvel #dc #dcu #comicbook #zbrush #keyshot

A Shazam! sequel is currently in development with Zachary Levi set to reprise the titular role. Henry Gayden, who wrote the first movie, is set to pen the screenplay for the sequel and David F. Sandberg is expected to return to the director’s chair. In the meantime, fans can rewatch Zachary Levi’s first Shazam! film on all home media formats. Here’s the synopsis:
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).
Directed by David F. Sandberg, Shazam! stars Zachary Levi, Asher Angel, Mark Strong, Jack Dylan Grazer, Grace Fulton, Faithe Herman, Ian Chen, Jovan Armand, Cooper Andrews, Marta Milans and Djimon Hounsou.
Shazam! is now available on Digital HD, 4K Ultra HD, Blu-ray, and DVD.
