Leaked video footage from the set of Shazam! has hit the Internet, and it gives us the first look of Zachary Levi's costume in action.
The scene seems to depict the aftermath of Shazam having saved a bus from certain danger. Levi acts as if he's just pulled off an impossible feat as people flee from the bus and gather to gawk at their savior.
It's hard to tell when the camera stops rolling, or if it ever does, so Levi's celebration dance could be a sign of how Shazam will be portrayed. While Levi and his character are grown men, it's important to remember that Shazam's alter-ego, Billy Batson, is just a kid. As such, audiences should probably expect to see a lot of goofy shenanigans.
According to Jeremy Lawrence, the Twitter user who caught the action, the filming is taking place at the Fort York Visitor Centre in Toronto. Since opening in 2014, it has become a hotbed for film crews filming on location in the city.
Arriving in theaters on April 5, 2019, Shazam! is directed by David F. Sandberg and and 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.
