DC fans have been long waiting for the unveiling of the newest addition to the DC Extended Universe – Shazam! Zachary Levi steps into the titular role to bring some much-needed light to a fairly dark franchise, and he has certainly been gracious about giving fans any hints that he can. First we saw the hair:

Now, we’re getting our first official look at him in his suit! Levi posed in front of a promo image at the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino in Las Vegas and we are loving it.
He captioned the photo:
This! This is what dreams are made of. Complete and total wish fulfillment, plus a beverage! #LicensingShowLasVegas #SHAZAMmovie #FirstLook? 🤷♂️
Shazam! follows Billy Batson (Asher Angel), a young boy who can transform into an adult superhero by saying “Shazam!” From the photo, you can definitely see that young boyish spirit by the way Levi is drinking that soda and we are really looking forward to seeing his child-like wonder play out in the movie. The film will be directed by Lights Out’s David F. Sandberg and was written by Henry Gayden and Darren Lemke. Shazam! flies into theaters April 5, 2019.
What do you think of the first look?
Having studied Media & Writing at James Madison University, I always knew that I wanted to do some type of creative writing, but being able to write about zombies, Starks, and superheroes on a daily basis for Fan Fest is my actual dream. While I probably shouldn’t be as proud as I am to be so similar to Nick Miller, I do hope to one day write my own “Pepperwood Chronicles’.
