For weeks, actor Zachary Levi has been teasing us. The man is set to take on the goofy superhero known as Shazam. Compared to the rest of the films in the DCEU, Shazam is certainly a more lighthearted hero, with his existence being something of a story of wish fulfillment for young kids, and with its bright red, white, and gold colors, it has the real potential to look a bit…cheap in this world.
But there has been no official look at what we can expect from his costume. However, one Redditor claims to have snapped a first look at the costume. Sadly, this isn’t a front view, but if real, can be indicative of an amazingly faithful adaptation of the costume.
Check it below:
As it stands, it’s probably a bit too early to tell, but I have the same feelings here that I did when I first saw Doctor Strange set photos. Out of context of the film, its color correction, its visual effects, this Shazam looks a whole lot more like cosplay than it does an actual film costume. Given that we’ve had such expensive-looking and realistic costumes from all the members of the Justice League, from a distance, this does seem to fall short.
However, there is still the possibility that this isn’t real, right? Sure, that’s a possibility, but given the crew and equipment, I’m pretty sure it’s real. It’s not too often that you’d find a random person on the web who’d go to such great lengths to fake a legit movie set, and I’ll be damned if that isn’t Levi.
Assuming it’s real, what do you think? Does this make you feel any less nervous about the film? Let us know your thoughts down below!
