Fans have seen glimpses of the Shazam! costume, but when are we going to get an actual full reveal?
That's the question on many fan's minds at the moment, especially since earlier in the year director David F. Sandberg revealed an official photo was right around the corner. Since then no picture has been released, and a fan directly asked the director about the delay.
"Plans changed from what I’d been told," Sandberg said. "I don’t know what the current plans are. I’m now just focusing on making a good movie and trying not to talk about things before I’m supposed to talk about them."

Truthfully we all want Shazam! to succeed on the big screen, so if an image getting delayed is what helps that happen then please, take 6 months more to release it. From the early glimpses though it is looking pretty slick, and seems to capture the comic origins of the character.
For context, here is what Sandberg originally said about the official reveal.
Hopefully, we can see the suit in all its glory soon.

"We all have a superhero inside us, it just takes a bit of magic to bring it out. In Billy Batson’s (Angel) case, by shouting out one word—SHAZAM!—this streetwise 14-year-old foster kid can turn into the adult Super Hero Shazam (Levi), courtesy of an ancient wizard.
Next up for DC is Aquaman, which lands in theaters on December 21. Shazam! is slated to hit theaters on April 5, 2019.
