Shazam! director David F. Sandberg has shared a brand new photo of Zachary Levi in the iconic superhero costume.
One of the biggest cinematic standouts from last year was Zachary Levi’s Shazam!, which was touted as one of the most imaginative and light-hearted superhero films in recent memory. Zachary Levi’s performance as the titular character was singled out and the film became an immediate critical success, with a sequel set to hit theatres in 2022.
In the wake of the coronavirus pandemic, numerous directors have been urging folks to stay at home by enticing them with quarantine watch parties that they can tweet along to. With the film’s one year anniversary just right around the corner, Shazam! director David F. Sandberg decided it was the perfect time to participate in a quarantine watch party for the Zachary Levi film hosted by ComicBook.com. After answering questions and revealing behind-the-scenes tidbits on Twitter, the director thanked fans for joining the watch party by sharing a brand new photo of Zachary Levi in the iconic costume.

The photo of Zachary Levi as Shazam is absolutely stunning as it takes full advantage of the character’s bright lightning bolt torso. Choosing to have Shazam’s lightning bolt as the only lit part of the photo makes it the focal point, showing just how cool and ominous the suit can be. The photo shared by the director also gives us the perfect light glimpse at Zachary Levi’s face, making us think this would serve as the perfect teaser poster for the character.

Here is the official synopsis for Shazam!:
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 quick.
Shazam! is now available on Digital HD, 4K Ultra HD, Blu-ray, and DVD.
