Even after set visits and videos, Warner Bros are yet to release an official image of Zachary Levi in his Shazam costume.We can’t help but wonder if this is a good thing? One thing we know is a positive, is that the pics and videos being released from the set are creating a lot of hype around the movie.
Out of the set photos that have surfaced the first shot of Zachary Levi in costume released online has made some fans rather uneasy. The fans who have been lucky enough to see it do tell us that the costume looks better in person, even saying it looks pretty amazing.
Regardless, one Twitter user decided to troll Zachary and compare the superhero’s costume to Robin William’s jumpsuit in Mork & Mindy. Zachary Levi was quick to respond, showing us his sense of humor:

In the film, slated for release in early April 2018, Asher Angel plays Billy Baston, a 14 year old boy who can morph into an adult superhero by stating the magic word, Shazam!.This power is granted to Billy by an ancient wizard.
Of course, he remains a kid at heart (only with a God-like body). Shazam does what we arguably all would do if granted superpowers and tests them out, having fun with his powers whilst he attempts to figure out what he is capable of. Is it x-ray vision, the power of flight, can he shoot lightning from his hands? What are his limits?
He joyfully tests the limits of his powers, but this joy will be short lived with Shazam needing to master them in order to defeat the evil forces of Dr. Thaddeus Sivana (played by Mark Strong).
