Zachary Levi wore his cape in new photos from the set of Shazam! Fury of the gods.
Principal photography is being made for the highly anticipated superhero sequel to the 2019 DC Extended Universe film. Earlier this week, set photos revealed actor Zachary Levi in an updated suit. The 2019 film, while praised by critics and fans alike, featured a suit that some criticized for its padding that was often compared to those seen in theme parks for meet-and-greet photo shoots.
In contrast, the new Fury of the gods The suit features a more refined design with minimal padding, looking more natural on Zachary Levi’s body. It also features patterns that feel consistent with costumes we’ve seen on other heroes in the DCEU, including Henry Cavill’s Superman and Ben Affleck’s Batman. The first photos of the set with the new suit did not include the white cape, and some speculate that it would be implemented in the design in post-production, similar to how Superman’s cape was created in Iron Man.
New photos from the set have hit the internet, showing Zachary Levi in the suit once again, this time complete with the cape. You can see the new photos of the set of Fury of the gods under:

We all have a superhero inside of us, it just takes a little magic to bring it out. In the case of Billy Batson (Angel), by shouting one word: SHAZAM !, this cunning 14-year-old foster boy can become the adult superhero Shazam (Levi), courtesy of a former wizard. Still a child at heart, within a torn and divine body, Shazam revels in this grown-up version of himself by doing what any teenager would do with superpowers: have fun with them! Can fly? Do you have X-ray vision? Can you shoot lightning from your hands? Can you skip your social studies test? Shazam sets out to test the limits of his abilities with the joyous recklessness of a child. But you will need to master these powers quickly.
