A post shared by David F. Sandberg (@ponysmasher) on

Pretending to be a superhero is half the fun of childhood. But what if you could go from being a kid to an adult with god-worthy powers just by uttering a single word?

That's exactly what happens in the upcoming movie Shazam, in which young character Billy Batson can instantly change into an adult superhero just by yelling the word "Shazam!" The film got a new teaser on Jan. 20 containing a Man of Steel Easter Egg.

The latest film in the DC Expanded Universe is directed by David F. Sandberg and written by Henry Gayden and Darren Lemke.

Entertainment Weekly gives the first look at actor Zachary Levi in his superhero costume standing next to actor Jack Dylan Grazer, who plays orphan Freddy Freeman, in the movie Shazam.

In late May, Levi posted to Instagram a fan-made image of Shazam slurping on a soft drink while watching fellow DC Comics superheroes Superman and Batman battle it out.

A couple of days later, Sandberg tweeted a short video mashup mixing the goofiness of Billy Batson/Shazam with the moodier movies fans are used to seeing out of the DC Comics film universe.

On July 12, Levi's Shazam superhero costume was officially revealed online. And on a few days later, fans got a closer look at Shazam and his inner teen as he blew a giant bubblegum bubble and checked his cell phone on the cover of Entertainment Weekly.
