This is so much fun. So, we haven’t had too much in the way of Shazam! news since filming wrapped but we got a cute little nugget today. Star Zachary Levi shared an image on his Instagram, giving us our first official look at the actor in costume. And might I say, he looks fantastic!

In the photo, Levi stands next to a giant image of himself in full costume, cutely drinking an Icee. The grin on the actor’s face says it all but he captioned his excitement by including – “This! This is what dreams are made of. Complete and total wish fulfillment, plus a beverage!” I mean who wouldn’t be excited to play a superhero? The giant poster seems to be at the Licensing Expo in Vegas.

As for the suit, I really dig it, especially the hood. Most Captain Marvel costumes rock just a cape so seeing the occasionally used hood is always a plus to me. It’s a seemingly more modern twist on the suit but doesn’t stray too far, even including the giant, glowing lightning bolt. There were mixed reactions when behind the scenes pictures came out but I think this should calm people’s worries. I can’t wait to see what Levi does with the character. I’m looking forward to this!

Check out the picture below and let us know what you think! Be sure to come back to Geek Girl Authority for more DC news. Shazam! will be out next year, April 5, 2019.
