Total Film magazine has revealed a new look at Zachary Levi in costume for DC’s upcoming Shazam! movie.
Shazam! stars Zachary Levi and centers on a child who turns into an adult with incredible superpowers after saying his name. The film is a new, much more lighthearted take on superhero films compared to previous ones from the DC Extended Universe. Below fans can see the new magazine cover featuring Zachary Levi.
In this new magazine cover, fans get another look at Zachary Levi in the role as the film is getting close to its release. A film described as “Superman meets Tom Hanks’ Big,” the cover features much of that personality. The cover features the character giving viewers a smirk as he is sipping on what seems to be a frozen drink.
The upcoming hero will learn more of his superpower abilities and will be fighting Dr. Sivana, who is being played by Mark Strong in the upcoming film. Mark Strong is no stranger to the world of DC Comics as he played Sinestro in 2011’s Green Lantern. With a new character to play, fans hope to see what he could bring in this villain role as he fights the superhero Shazam.
What do you think of this new look at Shazam!? Are you excited for the film? Share your thoughts below!
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 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 Asher Angel, Zachary Levi, Mark Strong, Jack Dylan Grazer, Grace Fulton, Ian Chen, Jovan Armand, Faithe Herman, Cooper Andrews, Marta Milans and Djimon Hounsou.
Shazam! will hit theaters on April 5, 2019.
