AceShowbiz - Another picture from the set of "Shazam!" has surfaced online as production on the upcoming Warner Bros.-DC movie is still underway. This time, Zachary Levi was pictured from the front, giving a better look at his titular character's costume.
In the photo that has leaked online, the actor rocked a tight red suit with a big lighting bolt on the chest area. It looks similar to the comic book version, with gold accents on the wrists and around the waist.

Previously, Levi was pictured from behind while filming the movie at a mall in Toronto. The Christmas decorations on the set hinted that the movie would take place around the holidays, which matches the comic book storyline.
"Shazam!" kicked off production in February. The official plot synopsis reads, "We all have a superhero inside us, it just takes a bit of magic to bring it out. In Billy Batson's case, by shouting out one word--SHAZAM!--this streetwise 14-year-old foster kid can turn into the adult Super Hero Shazam, 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?" it continues, "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."
The cast includes Asher Angel as young Billy Batson, Cooper Andrews and Marta Milans as Billy's foster parents Victor and Rosa Vasquez, Ron Cephas Jones as the Wizard, and Mark Strong as Dr. Thaddeus Sivana. Jack Dylan Grazer, Grace Fulton, Faithe Herman, Ian Chen and Jovan Armand play members of Billy's foster family.
Written by Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely, the movie adaptation of the DC comics is set for an April 5, 2019 release in the United States.
