Shazam! Is Here to Chew Bubblegum & Kick Butt in First Theatrical Poster

After months of promotional images and con-exclusive posters, Shazam! has unveiled its first official theatrical poster.

Shared by star Zachary Levi on his Instagram account, the poster shows the titular DCEU superhero casually leaning as he chews bubblegum and texts on his phone with the poster featuring the tagline "Just Say the Word" referring to the eponymous phrase Billy Batson uses to transform into his heroic alter ego.

The poster uses the same image of the character featured on the cover of Entertainment Weekly's Comic-Con International special issue this past July, albeit offering a full-bodied look of the superhero instead of cropping the image from the waist-up.

Levi also hints that a new trailer will debut sometime in 2019, which lines up with a statement last month from director David F. Sandberg that the wait for the trailer was due to the amount of visual effects involved with the production.
