The tonal shift in the DCEU can quite literally be seen in every promo photos released for the upcoming Shazam!. Yet, it doesn’t sway itself away from the extended universe but instead has revealed to have strong ties to the universe and its characters, perhaps more than the past titles.
A new photo from EW’s recent issue offers a new look at Shazam! played by Zachary Levi. The superhero seems to be experimenting with his new abilities and is clearly amazed by his strength to punch through a column. Fans can check out the still below.
The photo came along with the cover story article with heaps of quotes from the cast, producer and director of the movie. Fans can get hold of the recent EW issue at their closest newsstand or purchase the digital edition which is out.
Producer Peter Safran believes that “From my [Safran] perspective, Shazam! represents the next step in the evolution of the DC brand.” He went on to add, “You had Wonder Woman, then Aquaman [coming Dec. 21] is another big step, then comes Shazam!- all different movies, but all have a unique tone that moves away from the darkness of the prior DC movies.”
Surely, Shazam! will present a new element to the DCEU that neither fans or the larger audience have experienced in the past movies. but actor Zachary Levi also went on to add that Shazam! is not a kids film per se but it is certainly kid-friendly.
“People are concerned it might be too light,” said Levi. “I’m not. It’s an appropriate amount of levity and heart and darkness and grit and reality.”
Shazam! hits the big screens on April 5, 2019. Have a look out for the trailer which will first be first unveiled at SDCC 2018. Fans can pick up the recent EW issue to read up on the entire interview or subscribe to our notifications our further updates on the movie.
