First Official Image Of Zachary Levi's Costume From 'Shazam!'

Entertainment Weekly has revealed an official first look at Zachary Levi and Jack Dylan Grazer in DC’s Shazam! movie.

In the image, we see orphaned 14-year-old Billy Batson, who can transform into a grown-up superhero with an array of powers by saying the magic word. Billy is shown on a soda run with fellow orphan Freddy Freeman.

For the re-designed costume, Director David Sandberg took certain items throughout the character’s appearances in comics and animated shows.

“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,” the director tells sources. “It makes him feel a bit more Golden Age superhero, which is the vibe I’m going for.”

Shazam has a hood from DC’s 2011 “New 52” relaunch, a glowing lightning bolt that can appear across his chest and wears the gold gauntlets from one of Shazam’s animated movie appearances.

I always thought Shazam would make for a good movie. But in this superhero movie climate, I think it could do VERY well.

When I can compare a big-budget superhero extravaganza againstit's late-70s low budgetlive action Saturday morning kids' show predecessor and the only thing I can think is: "My God, you've fallen so far!", something is seriously wrong.

I prefer when they attempt to keep Movie costumes recognizable to the iconic artwork.

I really hope that they go in a different direction for this movie. I like this character and I have high expectations for this. They can do it both action packed and with a lighter mood at the same time.

This costume looks so good. I see nothing wrong with it. Can't wait to see a trailer.
