Roused by various variants of the character all through the superhuman’s appearances in funnies and vivified motion pictures, Director David Sandberg talked about how he upgraded the ensemble for the movie:
“I wanted to keep the shorter cape as a throwback to the original because that’s something that sets him apart from Superman or Batman. It makes him feel a bit more Golden Age superhero, which is the vibe I’m going for.”
Shazam’s ensemble is likewise total with gold gauntlets enlivened by a vivified highlight rendition of the character, a sparkling lightning jolt that can show up on the hero’s chest, and a hood that Sandberg included from The New 52, 2011 patch up and relaunch by DC Comics.

We all have a superhero inside us, it just takes a bit of magic to bring it out. In Billy Batson’s case, by shouting out one word—SHAZAM!—this streetwise 14-year-old foster kid can turn into the adult Super Hero Shazam, courtesy of an ancient wizard. Still, a kid at heart—inside a ripped, godlike body—Shazam revels in this adult version of himself by doing what any teen would do with superpowers: have fun with them! Can he fly? Does he have X-ray vision? Can he shoot lightning out of his hands? Can he skip his social studies test? Shazam sets out to test the limits of his abilities with the joyful recklessness of a child. But he’ll need to master these powers quickly in order to fight the deadly forces of evil controlled by Dr. Thaddeus Sivana.
