New Hollywood Podcast: ‘Shazam!’ Actress Marta Milans Explains Why Moms Are The Real Superheroes

  • Deadline
Shazam! opens in theaters nationwide Friday and although it is about a comic book film about a young boy who turns into a superhero every time he exclaims the word “Shazam!” He turns into a full grown man with superhuman strength, the ability to deflect bullets, can fly, is super fast and can shoot lightning from his fingertips.

Cool New TV Spot For DC's Shazam! and a New Photo of Doctor Sivana Powering Up

We've got a fun new promo spot for you to watch for DC's upcoming film Shazam! The spot shows off a bit of new footage from the film for you to enjoy that highlights a couple of little DC Easter eggs for Batman and Superman.

I've also included a couple new photos from the film from Preview Magazine. They include a cover graced by Shazam! and a new photo of Mark Strong as Doctor Sivana and as you'll see he's glowing with power. When previously talking about Sivana's powers, director David Sandberg explained:

"And it’s not just him, really, it’s … something else … that lent him his powers … he can do some things that Shazam can’t. The danger in some films is the bad guy has the same powers as the good guy. [Sivana] has an extra thing, extra dynamic, that takes care of that….”

The Director of Shazam! Reveals What Billy Batson is Looking For in The Story

Some new information has come to light regarding DC's Shazam! and the story that it will tell. These details go beyond what we learned from the synopsis that was released and what we saw in the trailer. This new info comes from director David F. Sandberg, and he reveals one of the quests that Billy Batson is embarking on.

During an interview with Cb, Sandberg explains that he is looking for his family. He's trying to find his mom who he thought was dead.

"He’s trying to find his family. His mom is still out there. But once he gets these powers, he’s just trying to figure out what to do with them and how it works. For that he needs his friend Freddie, who is like a superhero expert, who helps him to discover his powers and how to be a superhero."

Piers Morgan Tells Us America’s Most Dangerous Serial Killers Inspired ‘Nothing But Loathing’ in Him

  • The Wrap
In Oxygen’s newest true-crime show, “Serial Killer With Piers Morgan,” the famed TV personality sits in a giant, cleared out room in a prison, just two feet away from America’s most dangerous serial killers, with only one guard watching over them from the other side of the room.

“It’s pretty intimidating, I can’t pretend otherwise. Lorenzo Gilyard, the ‘Kansas City Strangler,’ strangled at least 12 people and he’s just sitting two feet away, there’s only one guard standing at the other end of the room,” Morgan, who almost bumped knees with the murderers as he interviewed them, told TheWrap. “These are the most dangerous criminals imaginable and on one level, you think, surely nothing will happen, but at the other point, he has nothing to lose. It’s an intimidating dynamic and you have to keep your wits about it. But you gotta watch it because before you go in,

Shazam! Graces The Cover of EW Magazine and The Film Represents The Next Evolution of the DC Brand

Entertainment Weekly has shared the cover of their special Comic-Con issue and it features DC Entertainment's Shazam! It shows Zachary Levi as the superhero blowing a big gum bubble and playing on his phone. It certainly highlights the child-like aspects of the character. When talking about playing Shazam, Levi says:

"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,” Levi enthuses. “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."

Producer Peter Safran goes on to explain that Shazam! represent the next evolution of the DC brand:

"From my perspective, Shazam! represents the next step in the evolution of the DC brand. You had Wonder Woman,

First Official Photo From Shazam! Shows Zachary Levi as the Glorious Superhero

Finally! Warner Bros. has released the first official photo from Shazam! featuring Zachary Levi in costume. The studio really dragged their feet on releasing an official image, but here it is in all its glory and he looks great! Standing next to Shazam in the photo is Jack Dylan Grazer, who plays Billy's best friend Freddy Freeman in the film.

When coming up with the costume design for the film, director David Sandberg (Lights Out) took elements from throughout the character’s appearances in comics and animated shows. He tells EW:

"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. It makes him feel a bit more Golden Age superhero, which is the vibe I’m going for."

It looks like he succeeded. I really like how the completed design turned out. It's very fun,

Djimon Hounsou Has Been Cast as a 3,000-Year-Old Wizard in Shazam!

Shazam! has added a great new cast member! According to EW, Djimon Hounsou was quietly cast in the role of the 3,000-year-old sorcerer who ends up giving young Billy Batson his powers in the story so that he can magically transform into a fully adult-size superhero.

In the comics, The Wizard is an ancient being and the last surviving member of a council of wizards who must find a champion to battle the evil Black Adam.

This Is Us actor Ron Cephas Jones was previously reported as getting this role, but due to scheduling conflicts, he wasn't able to do it. Hounsou is a talented actor and it's good to see him take on the role. He'll be great in the film!

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!

Zachary Levi Shares Photo of First Official Promo Banner For Shazam!

Thanks to Zackary Levi, we have our first official look at a promo banner from director David S. Sandberg. This banner gives us our best look yet at what Shazam's costume will actually look like in the film after it goes through the post production-process and it looks cool! There's definitely a lot more texture to it and a design to the costume that we weren't seeing in the set photos that we've previously posted.

Now that you see what the costume will actually look like in the movie, what do you think? I wonder when Warner Bros. will actually give us a proper high resolution image of Shazam!?

This! This is what dreams are made of. Complete and total wish fulfillment, plus a beverage!

The Official Logo of Shazam! Revealed in Teaser Poster

Warner Bros. and DC Entertainment have released the first teaser poster for Shazam! and it gives us our first look at the logo. This is great and all, but hopefully they actually release an official photo of the character soon. We've seen plenty of leaked set photos of Zachary Levi all decked out in his costume, but I want to see an image that will show us what he actually looks like in the movie.

New Shazam! Set Photo Shows The Front of Zachary Levi's Costume

Last week we got our first look at Zachary Levi's costume in DC Entertainment's Shazam! It gave us a look at the back of the costume, but today a new set photo has surfaced showing us the front of the costume. It pretty much looks like exactly what I imagined it would look like! It's the Shazam! costume! I think the costume design is great and I can't wait to see it in action!

I'm sure that that the costume will look even better once it goes through the whole post-production process. I'm surprised that after the first leak, Warner Bros. didn't just release an official photo of the title character because it doesn't look like these set photos are going to stop. They should release an official image and just get it out of the way. It'd be better than these set photos!

Shazam! Set Photo Reveals Our First Look at Zachary Levi in Full Costume

After director David S. Sandberg teased the inspiration for the costume Zachary Levi will be wearing in Shazam! We may actually have our first look at the actor in costume and he looks like... Shazam! When previously talking about the suit, the director said:

"The suit has some similarities to his look in Justice League: War. Once pics have been released I can tell you more about where the inspirations came from and why certain choices were made."

The photo below, which comes from Batman-News, gives us a look at the actor from behind, but it still offers us a decent look at the full costume. It has a very cartoon-style feel to it, which is honestly exactly what I was hoping for! I was afraid the costume would have that same style that we've seen in the other DC films, but I felt that style wouldn't work for Shazam.
