Zachary Levi’s Shazam Gets A Lightning Bolt That’s Closer To The Comics In New Art
DC’s Shazam! will mark the first live-action feature film appearance by the titular DC hero and Zachary Levi managed to bring a prop from the set back home. While Levi would not reveal exactly which item he kept for himself, he did offer a hint:
“I’m wondering if I can talk about the thing I took from set. It’s a person. No, there’s some signage, some neon signage in the movie that when you see it you will know what that signage is, and it just struck me as really funny and awesome and I thought if that gets to live anywhere I want it to like, be in my garage or something so that’s what I took. But with the understanding that should the production need it for any reason I have to ship it back or we’ll just build a new one, I don’t know.”

Are you excited to see Zachary Levi bring Shazam! to life? Share your thoughts below!
“We all have a superhero inside us, it just takes a bit of magic to bring it out. In Billy Batson’s (Angel) case, by shouting out one word—SHAZAM!—this streetwise 14-year-old foster kid can turn into the adult Super Hero Shazam (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 (Strong).”
Directed by David F. Sandberg, Shazam! stars Zachary Levi, Asher Angel, Grace Fulton, Jack Dylan Grazer, Cooper Andrews, Marta Milans, Faithe Herman, Ian Chen, Jovan Armand, Djimon Hounsou as The Wizard and Mark Strong as Doctor Sivana.
Shazam! is scheduled to be released in theaters on April 5, 2019.

10 Things You Didn’t Know About Shazam
< ?xml encoding="UTF-8"???>
Shazam may look like a Superman rip-off, but he’s so much more than that. Created way back in 1939, Captain Marvel (now referred to solely as Shazam) is an incredibly complex character. After a teenager named Billy Batson stumbles upon a Wizard called Shazam, his whole life changes. Granted magical powers, Billy transforms into a superhero but keeps his childish personality whenever he’s fighting evil.
Chosen to serve as a defender of justice for the Wizard, Billy is given a wide range of powers. Whenever Billy yells the wizard’s name, he transforms into the powerful Captain Marvel and rushes off to fight evil. A lot has changed for the character over his 77 year history, but he still has so much more room to grow! With Shazam! hitting theaters next year, the character’s popularity will start to grow and it’s likely he’ll receive a new comic book series soon, so you might as well start learning everything you can about the character now.
