Shazam himself, Zachary Levi, also announced on instagram that the movie had finished filming by donating all of the toys they used onset to non-profit organizations in Toronto. The announcement, along with the film’s synopsis, can be found below.
As we wrap production on @shazammovie, there are so many people that need to be thanked. Our cast and crew, through and through, were legit ninja warriors who battled one helluva winter, and made something so magical in the process. Thank you, Toronto, for being such a gracious and entertaining host to our #Shazamily. On behalf of the entire production, here’s a little something we’d like to leave with y’all for being so good to us…🙏
“We all have a superhero inside us, it just takes a bit of magic to bring it out. In Billy Batson’s (Asher Angel) case, by shouting out one word—SHAZAM!—this streetwise 14-year-old foster kid can turn into the adult Super Hero Shazam (Zachary Levi), courtesy of an ancient wizard. Still a kid at heart—inside a ripped, godlike body—Shazam revels in this adult version of himself by doing what any teen would do with superpowers: have fun with them! Can he fly? Does he have X-ray vision? Can he shoot lightning out of his hands? Can he skip his social studies test? Shazam sets out to test the limits of his abilities with the joyful recklessness of a child. But he’ll need to master these powers quickly in order to fight the deadly forces of evil controlled by Dr. Thaddeus Sivana (Mark Strong)”.
Shazam! arrives in theatres on April 5, 2019.
