In what seems like a consistent stream of leaks from the set of Shazam, a new picture of actor Zachary Levi online reveals the best look at the suit so far. When asked what it’s like to play the “World’s Mightiest Mortal”, Levi took to Twitter to respond.
After several leaked photos from the set of Shazam showed off Levi’s costume, another image is online revealing an even better look at the actor portraying the “World’s Mightiest Mortal”. Take a look for yourself:

As you can see from the image, the look is reminiscent of the classic Shazam costume with the cape most of the DC faithful will recognize as the one from the New 52 line of comics. The image also reveals the muscular padding used in most super hero costumes to create that true ‘comic book look’ alongside a great shot of his bracers and belt.
Another thing to note is the inclusion of little tiger heads that appear to be holding up his cape. Reports indicate that little detail is meant to pay homage to the character of Mister Tawky Tawny, who some might remember as a character from the Golden Age run of Shazam comics.
It seems as though Levi is having a lot of fun playing the character but of course fans want to know more. When asked by fans on Twitter as to what his favorite thing about playing Shazam in the film so far has been, Levi had this to say:
Flying. 😏 https://t.co/Uk9MGrUlf8
