Although we still haven’t seen an official image from Warner Bros. and DC Films, a number of high quality spy photos from the set of the DCEU blockbuster Shazam have arrived online over the past few weeks, giving us a clear look at Zachary Levi in costume as the titular superhero.
While very comic accurate, the Shazam costume has come in for criticism from some quarters for its bright, campy design, and now – after being prompted by the fan question “Why the crap suit?” – Levi has taken to social media to address some of the flak, and shared his own opinion that it is “fucking bomb”. Check it out here…

What do you make of the Shazam costume? Let us know in the comments below…
“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).”
Shazam will see Zachary Levi starring as the titular superhero, with Asher Angel as his young alter-ego Billy Batson, Jack Dylan Grazer as Freddy Freeman, Ian Chen as Eugene Choi, Jovan Armand as Pedro Peña, Grace Fulton as Mary Marvel, Cooper Andrews as Victor Vasquez, Faithe Herman as Darla Dudley, Mark Strong as Dr. Thaddeus Sivana and Ron Cephas Jones as the Wizard. The film is set for release on April 5th 2019.
