Shazam! looks like it’ll be a much different DCEU movie than we’re used to seeing, and the first official look we’ve been given for the movie makes that even more obvious. We’ve seen leaked images before, but now, we get a much clearer look at Zachary Levi in his costume for the title role.

As they do with everything, comic book fans had a lot to say about the reveal:

Sorry fellas, I just ain’t feeling the Shazam suit. Looks really cheap and such a step down from other DCEU costumes. Hopefully it looks better with VFX and everything, but so far I’m not digging it.

As a hardcore DC comics fan it gets really hard to defend the DCEU movies when they give Zachary Levi styrofoam muscles for Shazam like he’s wearing a 90s era kids costume #ShouldaCastJohnCena

Making #Shazam the comedy movie of DC is genius. It’s a group of kids who turn into superhero adults, but are still kids on the inside. So having all the jokes makes complete sense
