Warner Bros. Pictures has finally revealed the first official look at Zachary Levi’s Shazam! superhero costume. Although multiple leaks from the film’s set have already offered a glimpse of the superhero costume, this is the first time that the film studio has officially used the costume’s picture in any promotional material.
Shazam! star Zachary Levi took to Instagram to share a photo of himself standing next to a big Shazam banner put up on display at the 2018 Licensing Expo in Las Vegas.
“This! This is what dreams are made of. Complete and total wish fulfillment, plus a beverage!,” Levi captioned the picture on Instagram.
Unfortunately, the promotional banner only reveals half of the costume. Fans are hopeful that Warner Bros. will soon release an official still from Shazam! that will offer an even better look at the costume. You can check out the Instagram picture below.
Fans absolutely loved the superhero’s costume. They expressed their excitement for the film through their comments.
“When you see the main actor so excited as you, you know that the movie will be great,” one of the comments read.
“Awesome!! So excited for you!!! Can’t wait to see the movie!!!” another comment read.
While some fans are praising Levis’ Shazam! look and costume, there are others who have been criticizing the suit claiming that it has a muscle padding built in to offer a more muscular appearance. The costume in question takes inspiration from WB’s Justice League: War animated movie.
You can check out fans reaction to the costume reveal in the post below.
Talking more about Shazam!, the film recently wrapped up shooting earlier this month. Levi announced the wrap-up in a video that he shared on Instagram. Currently, the film is headed for its months-long post-production process.
Directed by David F. Sandberg, Shazam!, stars Asher Angel as Billy Batson, Zachary Levi as Shazam, and Mark Strong as Dr. Thaddeus Sivana in the lead roles.
Shazam! is set to premiere in theatres on April 5, 2019.

The #Shazam costume looks… interesting… Still need to see it in action before I make a solid judgement call.

Getting DCEU Superman vibes from Shazam's costume. Considering Billy admires Superman, I wouldn't think it would be too much of a stretch to think his costume was inspired by Superman's. #Shazam pic.twitter.com/Mx9nGCMRGy

Shazam's costume looks great, shouldn't have judged it the first time I saw the leaked pictures. Can't believe I'm going to say this, but I'm actually really excited for this movie

The Shazam costume looks like it is was drawn and animated first for a cartoon, then adapted into a cheap flat costume that would be worn by the Disney World cast members. pic.twitter.com/SYhyA1LQ7N
