After months of waiting, Warner Bros. Even though his background comes in horror, director David F. There's been plenty of updates on the movie throughout production, but when filming came to a closeone big question left on everyone's mind was why an official look at Levi in costume hadn't been released and also when it could come.
There were previously plans in place to release the image alongside the first leaked photosbut plans changed and led to no official image releasing. Levi actually provided fans with the best look at him in character with a promotional banner. That was the closest to an official look we had received, until now. The general look of the suit is no longer a surprise, but the official look provides a cleaner and more polished look at Shazam. Now that the studio has finally released the image, fans will no longer have to wonder how different it would look on screen as compared to the set photos.
It looks very similar but the lightning bolt shining comes across better here. This is just a still image however, so the suit hopefully looks as good or even better when it is actually in action. It will do just that whenever a trailer is released. However, fans are undoubtedly eager to see the actual transformation process that the movie uses to turn Billy Batson Asher Angel into Shazam. There's also plenty of interest in seeing how well Levi actually plays the part, especially since he'll be playing the heroic figure as if he was just a child.
For now, it is time to just reflect on the suit and just be happy that the official image is finally here. Source: EW. Cooper Hood is a news and feature writer for Screen Rant.
