Entertainment Weekly has released their comic-con cover earlier than expected thanks to Zachary Levi. The cover focuses on Shazam and gives us some cool details about the movie.
“It’s complete wish-fulfillment — if you scour all of DC and Marvel there are very few characters that are actually stoked to be a superhero,” Lead star Zachary Levi tells the site. “They’re not brooding, they’re not put out, like ‘Oh dammit, I gotta save the world again!’ Billy Batson is like Peter Parker, they’re thrilled to have these powers and can’t wait to try them out.” Sounds cool, right?
“From my perspective, Shazam! represents the next step in the evolution of the DC brand,”producer Peter Safran notes. “You had Wonder Woman, then Aquaman [coming Dec. 21] is another big step, then comes Shazam! — all different movies, but all have a unique tone that moves away from the darkness of the prior DC movies.”
