Late last month, a series of Funko Pop! figures for Shazam! appeared on the internet, spoiling the potential inclusions of the rest of the Marvel/Shazam Family in the upcoming film. Those images were taken down at the request of Warner Bros. However, a new official look at those figures only further confirms the appearance of the Shazam Family.
The previously leaked images revealed a look at Eugene and Darla's superhero alter egos. However, this new image, which comes from Funko on Twitter, gives a look at the rest of the family and their costumes.
While we knew that Billy's extended family would appear in the film, this marks further confirmation that their magical, super-powered alter egos will also play a role. The characters had previously appeared in a children's book and as a series of figurines. Considering that this is from Funko's official Twitter account, it's now hard not to believe that the family will indeed play a role in the film.
Billy Batson being joined by a super-powered family of fellow heroes has been an integral part of the Shazam mythos for decades. Following the New 52 reintroduction of Shazam by Geoff Johns and Gary Frank, the new incarnation of the Shazam Family introduced Freddie, Mary, Eugene, Darla and Pedro as foster siblings of Billy Batson, with whom he shared his newfound magical powers.
Arriving on April 5, director David F. Sandberg’s Shazam! stars Asher Angel as Billy Batson, Zachary Levi as Shazam, Mark Strong as Dr. Thaddeus Sivana, Djimon Hounsou as the ancient wizard Shazam, Grace Fulton as Mary Bromfield, Jack Dylan Grazer as Frederick “Freddy” Freeman, Ian Chen as Eugene Choi, Jovan Armand as Pedro Peña, Faithe Herman as Darla Dudley, Cooper Andrews as Victor Vásquez and Marta Milans as Rosa Vásquez.
