Detailed Shazam Photos Reveal Costume's Tawky Tawny Homage

Tawky Tawny

The latest photos from the Toronto set of Shazam! provide the first detailed look at Zachary Levi's superhero costume.

The DC Comics superhero's iconic suit is more intricately detailed than earlier set photos revealed. The red fabric appears to boast a mesh texture, and contour lines highlight Levi's physique. These images also show the detail of the cape, emblem, gauntlets and belt.

Perhaps the most interesting revelation is the presence of two tiger emblems on the clasps that attach the cape to the lightning bolt emblem on Levi's chest, indicating a link to the classic supporting character Mr. Tawky Tawny.

Traditionally depicted as an anthropomorphic tiger who wears suits, Tawny has been depicted more recently as a simple animal friend. Whether the character will be seen in director David F. Sandberg's film has yet to be announced.

Arriving in theaters on April 5, 2019, Shazam! stars Zachary Levi as Shazam, Asher Angel as Billy Batson, Mark Strong as Doctor Sivana, Grace Fulton as Mary Bromfield, Jack Dylan Grazer as Freddy Freeman, Ian Chen as Eugene Choi, Jovan Armand as Pedro Pena, Ron Cephas Jones as the Wizard and Cooper Andrews and Marta Milans as foster parents Victor and Rosa Vasquez.
