The director of Shazam offered fans a sneak peek at some of the film's upcoming merchandise.
David F. Sanberg posted a gallery of photos after meeting with Warner Bros. Consumer Products.
"Meetings with WB Consumer Products are the best meetings (swipe)," Sandberg posted. "Got to see some awesome upcoming toys as well that I can’t wait to be official."
Take a look below:
Rumor has it that New Line Cinema will drop the second trailer for Shazam later this month. A rumored description of the trailer surfaced online. The report suggests the trailer will include several references to Batman and Superman.
Shazam stars Asher Angel as Billy Batson and Zachary Levi as Batson’s mystically-powered superhero alter ego, the titular Shazam.
Here’s the synopsis:
“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!—this streetwise 14-year-old foster kid can turn into the adult Super Hero Shazam (Zachary Levi), courtesy of an ancient wizard (Djimon Hounsou).
“It is a family movie,” said Angel. “I think him and Superman have a lot in common. He can basically do everything Superman can do.”
“It is you [Angel] in me,” Levi said. “It’s a fourteen-year-old kid. You’re the Earth’s Mightiest Mortal.”
“I can’t tell you much, as you can probably imagine, but what I can say is I am just out of my mind excited!" Levi said in a separate interview. "I get to do my version of Big, basically. It’s like Superman meets Big, and that's just so fun. I get to be a superhero that’s excited about being a superhero, and I think that’s refreshing. It’s not glum, and like, ‘Oh, I have to save the world again.’ So I think it’s all really gravy.”
