Although DC's next live-action superhero film is Aquaman, it seems like more recent news is about the film following that, Shazam!. Yesterday we got the casting reveal (they are actually done shooting) of the Wizard, who will be played by Djimon Hounsou. Today, we are getting the first official look at the Big Red Cheese's costume.
Sure, there were set leaks showing the costume, and actor Zachary Levi himself previewed the costume… but this is the first full shot from the movie officially unveiled. It's no big surprise, but you do get get to see most of the costume, and like the preview, he is drinking something (different) again.
Shazam! director David Sandberg has this commentary about the movie costume:
"I wanted to keep the shorter cape as a throwback to the original because that's something that sets him apart from Superman or Batman" … "It makes him feel a bit more Golden Age superhero, which is the vibe I'm going for."
Freddy Freeman (Jack Dylan Grazer) and Shazam enjoy a "Cola"
Shazam! arrives in theaters (we are guessing with drink) April 5, 2019.
