It will be a while before fans get a look at Warner Bros. and DC Films' Shazam movie but that isn't stopping director David F. Sandberg from having fun with it.

Sandberg took to Instagram with a post from a Warner Bros. office loaded with posters based on DC Comics films, including Wonder Woman, Suicide Squad, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, Justice League, and The LEGO Batman Movie. Between those posters is the Sandberg-designed Shazam poster featuring the titular hero's iconic red and yellow costume which will certainly serve as a wonderful placeholder until the real thing arrives.

"Office decoration," Sandberg wrote with the photo.

If that costume looks familiar, it's certainly not because it looks like Shazam as fans know him from the pages of DC Comics books. Actually, it's because Sandberg previously trolled fans who were asking for a first look at the costume Zachary Levi will be wearing when the film rolls around.(Photo: BossLogic)

When a Twitter user sent a Sandberg a tweet, the director responded with what he referred to as "a work in progress" hosted on another site. It was the same Shazam design which is featured on the poster in the Warner Bros. office.

Shazam is set for release on April 5, 2019, which follows fellow DC hero film Aquaman in December of 2018.. Justice League is now playing in theaters.
