If you’d asked me, or anyone really, about 10-15 years ago whether there was ever going to be a Shazam movie made, you’d probably be met with a hearty laugh. No one could have anticipated that one of DC Comics’ oldest heroes would make it to the big screen. Yet it’s 2018, superhero movies are doing better than ever, and the movie Shazam! is in the works!
Having already completed principal photography back in May, Warner Bros. has chosen to get the promotional ball rolling by releasing the first official photo from the movie. Arriving first on Entertainment Weekly , the photo shows Zachary Levi (as Shazam) and Jack Dylan Grazer, who plays Freddy Freeman, drinking soda pop right outside a store.
With Levi totally rocking the look of the Golden Age hero, I’m completely sold on the vibe this one image has set for the rest of the movie. With the movie set to debut on April 5, 2019, Shazam! could be the breath of fresh air the DC Extended Universe needs!
