Warner Bros. has today peeled back the curtain on the bold, colorful logo for Shazam!
David Sandberg’s DCEU title has been in active production since February, and while the Internet has been teeming with all sorts of set photos – both official and otherwise – Entertainment Weekly promises to take fans that little bit closer with a live Q&A featuring Shazam!‘s leading characters, the details of which are yet to be unveiled. Perhaps it’ll include Zachary Levi and Mark Strong (Dr. Thaddeus Sivana) alongside Sandberg?
Whatever the case, it’s clear that Warner Bros. is ready to showcase its wares. Besides, with so many set photos and leaked snapshots already littering the interwebs, we imagine the Powers That Be will want to get an official photo of the fully-costumed Levi out in the open sooner rather than later.
Here’s confirmation of that newfangled logo:
If you’ve been following the film closely, you’ll know that Warner’s 2019 spinoff has been pitched as the cinematic intersection of Big and Superman, which is to say that the young Billy Batson will be imbued with god-like abilities derived from Solomon, Hercules, Atlas, Zeus, Achilles and Mercury – hence the catchy title.
Also starring Grace Fulton, Faithe Herman, Ian Chen, Jovan Armand, Cooper Andrews, Marta Milans, and Ron Cephas Jones as the ancient wizard, Shazam! has been tentatively slated for a release in April of 2019. Further details on David Sandberg’s Big-like superhero movie are expected online tomorrow courtesy of Entertainment Weekly, so stay tuned.
Beyond that, Aquaman is all set to become the first DCEU movie in a post-Justice League world, so we’re intrigued to find out whether Warner’s new approach has had much of an impact on the film’s quality. Fingers crossed!
