Staying ahead of leaks, Hollywood director David F Sandberg took to his social media pages on Monday to release the photos of the Shazam Heroes, wearing all-new superhero suits.
The photo is from the sets of Shazam! Fury of the Gods, which is scheduled to release on June 2, 2023. “Don’t know how long we can keep the new suits from leaking so here’s a pic I took the other day,” he wrote, along with the photo.
The film is a sequel of the popular 2019 movie Shazam!, which chronicles the tale of a young boy Billy Batson (Asher Angel), who discovers his newfound power of transforming into a superhero (Zachary Levi) by saying the word ‘Shazam’, after being blessed by a wizard to inherit six abilities: wisdom of Solomon, strength of Hercules, stamina of Atlas, power of Zeus, courage of Achilles and speed of Mercury. He later shares these powers with five of his foster siblings, turning all into heroes and enabling them to defeat the villain Sivana.
The picture shows the superhero alter egos of the children: Adam Brody as Freddy, Meagan Good as Darla, Ross Butler as Eugene, Zachary Levi as Billy, Grace Fulton as Mary and D Cotrona as Pedro.
The updated versions of the costumes appear to be more realistic due to muted shades of color, a slightly different shape of the lightning bolt on the chest, longer capes and a distinct texture, distinguishing it from the prequel’s suits.
This sudden surprise came as a treat to Shazam and DCEU fans, as they got a glimpse of the film, and feel excited for the drama that will ensue. All in all, David not only avoided media leaks but also built up the hype for his upcoming project. So, well-played David!
