Shazam! Merchandise May Reveal Some Major Additions to the Film

UPDATE: Original tweet was deleted and link to it removed at the request of Warner Bros.

With the latest DCEU film, Shazam!, opening in three months, tie-in merchandising for the superhero film has begun to emerge, potentially revealing key plot points from the movie.

A children's activity pad is available for preorder in Australia and New Zealand from Wheeler's Books. In addition to coloring pages, the book contains stickers and cut-outs of characters from the film, including super-powered versions of Billy Batson's adoptive family.

As the images are rather small, it's difficult to tell if they're of the film's versions of the characters, and it is currently unknown if the other super-powered members of the Shazam family will actually appear in the film. However, the activity pad gives an indication that they just might make an appearance before Shazam! ends.

The activity pad will be available in Australia and New Zealand on March 1, though it is unclear if it is receiving a North American release.

Originally known as the Marvel Family, the Shazam family included Billy Batson's friends and family that were similarly powered with their own heroic alter egos. Eugene Choi, Pedro Peña and Darla Dudley were created by Geoff Johns and Andy Kubert as counterparts to Billy and Mary Batson and Freddy Freeman to form S!H!A! Z!A!M!, the Flashpoint's version version of the hero, Captain Thunder. Following the New 52 reboot, they were introduced as foster siblings of Billy with their own individual superhero identities.
