Warner Bros. brought out Zachary Levi to tease Shazam! at the Licensing Show in Las Vegas, treating those in attendance with a first look at the film.
While Levi had already shared with fans the first official look of himself as the titular hero of the film, Warner Bros brought the whole family to Licensing Show — literally. Amongst descriptions of the film posed as “‘Big’ meets ‘Superman'”, the promo images that Warner Bros shared also apparently depicted the entire Shazam family in costume.
While we have confirmation that the film’s villain will not be Shazam’s archnemesis Black Adam (The Rock) and instead will be Dr. Sivana (Mark Strong), the reveal of the whole Shazam family in costume appears to give credence to an Instagram Levi posted hinting at an appearance of supervillain team the Seven Deadly Sins. This would probably give the Shazam family cannon fodder to fight with while Shazam himself focuses on taking on Dr. Sivana.
Check out the tweet describing the film below!
WB brought out Zack Levi to tease Shazam and I was super impressed. A lot of amazing set photos including the whole Shazam family in costume. The feel of the movie is “Big” meets “Superman”. Looks like it will have a different tone but I can’t wait. Also saw full costume shots.

Are you excited to see Shazam debut on the silver screen? Sound off below!
Shazam! stars Zachary Levi, Asher Angel, Grace Fulton, Jack Dylan Grazer, Cooper Andrews, Marta Milans, Faithe Herman, Ian Chen, Jovan Armand and Mark Strong as Doctor Sivana. Here’s the official 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).”
Shazam! hits theaters on April 5, 2019.
