In the cruel and extremely competitive segment of the comic films, DC Comics decided to open a new battle front with the franchise of Shazam, the character created by Bill Parker and Clarence Charles, and his own real action film. The project has caused several mixed reactions, especially after selecting the actor Zachary Levi, who has no references in action movies.
Today finally the production of the film directed by David F. Sandberg, who is not known for any great production, revealed the first official image of how the hero will look. The suit that DC Comics and Warner Bros. decided to implement to increase the complexion of the character looks too complete and complete with the tendency to have physically well-worked actors to make the appearance of heroes in comics more realistic.
The image was released by Entertainment Weekly on its site as part of the promotion heading for the premiere of the tape in April 2019 (just a couple of weeks before the next X-Men movie).
It is not the first time that Zachary Levi had been seen wearing his costume. Several months ago, several images were leaked and several critics came up with how “Billy Batson“, already transformed into Shazam, can be seen.
To be perfectly fair, it is not that Zachary Levi has not tried to develop his physique to fulfill the requirement of embodying a superhero. In his social media accounts he has documented part of his training and the progress he has made, but apparently he did not achieve the level required to avoid wearing such a pronounced suit.
What do you think about the image of Shazam for his new film?
