Shazam: the first official photo
After some stolen pictures from the set of Toronto has finally been made available the first official photo of the upcoming movie, Dc Comics Shazam!
To take the photo was Entarteinment Weekly (the image you can see below). In the picture we see in the foreground the actor Zachary Levi in the role of Shazam, and Jack Dylan Grazer (already seen in the role of Eddie in the recent remake of the film of It), who plays Freddy Freeman, the friend of Billy Batson (played by Asher Angel), the alterego 14-year-old superhero, which just say the magic word to transform into the iconic character of the Dc Comics.
The film's director, David Sandberg (Annabelle: Creation), interviewed by Entarteinment Weekly, said that before arriving at the costume the final was influenced by the comics from the animated series of Shazam.
“I wanted to keep the small cloak because it is a thing that differentiates this character from Superman and Batman, he said it makes him feel a bit more golden age, that is just the kind of atmosphere I tried to create”.
But the previews do not end here, because the first teaser of Shazam! could come already next week, when, on the occasion of the Comic-con San Diego, Warner Bros, during the usual lecture Hall H should show previews coming from Shazam!, also Aquaman and the new film of Wonder Woman called Wonder Woman in 1984.
This is the synopsis of Shazam!:
We all have a superhero inside of us, it only takes a little bit of magic to make it come out. In the case of Billy Batson, scream the word ‘Shazam!’ – courtesy of an old wizard – transforms this fourteen-year-old coming from the street in the adult version of himself that he does everything that would make a kid with superpowers: it's fun. It knows how to fly? Has x-ray vision? Can launch lightning bolts from the hands? Can avoid his test for social studies? Shazam will test the limits of its capacity with the joyous recklessness of a child. But it will need to control his powers in a hurry to deal with the deadly forces of evil controlled by Dr. Thaddeus Sivana.
Shazam! due out in theaters April 5, 2019.
