A new piece of concept art shows off one of the Seven Deadly Sins that plague Billy Batson in Zachary Levi’s Shazam! movie.
While Zachary Levi’s Shazam! has been out for almost a year now, new concept art from the DC film continues to surface online, showing off what one of the Seven Deadly Sins nearly looked like after Mark Strong’s Doctor Sivana freed them from imprisonment. Their full introduction in Shazam! floored audiences and critics alike as director David F. Sandberg used his horror talents to show how terrifying the monsters could be in that iconic boardroom scene.
The new concept art from Zachary Levi’s Shazam! comes from Jerad S. Merantz on Instagram, as the artist explains he was originally meant to design all of the Seven Deadly Sins but only got as far as Wrath before DC asked him to focus on the suits for the Shazam! family. The stunning art shows how intimidating and creepy Wrath could be. Take a look at the concept art from Zachary Levi’s Shazam! below.

Here’s a fun one. When I started on #Shazam the higher ups were considering having me also take on the #7deadlysins. This was as far as I got on #wrath before they decided to just keep me focused on the superhero suits. I was pretty excited that They brought on my incredibly talented friend @nevillepage Who of course knocked The designs out of the park! #dcmovies #shazammovie #conceptart #creaturedesign #zbrush #keyshot #billybatson

Here is the synopsis for the Zachary Levi’s Shazam!:
We all have a superhero inside us, it just takes a bit of magic to bring it out. In Billy Batson’s (Asher Angel) case, by shouting out one word—SHAZAM!—this streetwise 14-year-old foster kid can turn into the adult Super Hero Shazam (Zachary 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 (Mark 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. Stay tuned to Heroic Hollywood for all the lasted news surrounding Zachary Levi’s Shazam! 2
