Shazam! Action Figure Gives Us A Full Look At Dr. Sivana

The next film in the DCEU will have big shoes to fill after the success of Aquaman has had especially in foreign markets. Shazam! is the next DC film in line to be released in April directed by David F. Sandberg and starring Zachary Levi. With the film only a few months away we are starting to see some images of merchandise making its way onto the internet over the weekend.

One of the images that has been floating around is that of Dr. Sivana, the evil inventor and arch-nemesis of Shazam who will be played by Mark Strong. Who we had briefly seen in the Shazam! trailer. You can check it out below!

This classic character who’s full name is Doctor Thaddeus Bodog Sivana Sr. was a frequent Golden Age foe of Shazam, then known as Captain Marvel. He has a genius level intelligence, which has allowed him to invent various weapons and gadgets to give him a technological advantage in battle. His first appearance in comics was in Whiz Comics #1 in February, 1940 and was created by Otto Binder, C.C. Beck and Jerry Ordway.

Joining Levi and Strong on Shazam! will be Asher Angel, Jack Dylan Grazer, Grace Fulton, Faithe Herman, Ian Chen, Jovan Armand, Cooper Andrews, Marta Milans and Ron Cephas Jones.

Here is the synopsis for the film:

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).

What do you think of our first full look of this Golden Age villain? Let us know in the comment section below!

Warner Bros. Pictures Shazam! will be released in theaters April 5th, 2019.
