The Shazam Funko! Pops!
We’ve known for some time that the adult versions of the kids in Shazam! would make an appearance in the film. Our own Craig Lin actually was the first to break the news. Eugene Choi was being played by Ross Butler and Pedro Pena would be portrayed by Justice League Mortal Alum D.J. Cotrona. Now we have details on just how they’ll look in their costumes thanks to images showing other Shazam! Funko Pop! members.
Zachary Levi recently revealed an image on his Instagram displaying the first look at his own Funko Pop! He called getting the figure made a “Dream. Come. True.” Seeing Levi unveil his own Funko Pop! makes sense. For instance, we’ve already seen his costume in glorious high-resolution from official images by Warner Bros. However, we haven’t had much news on the other family members in Shazam!
***SPOILERS FOLLOW FOR A SEMI SUIT REVEAL***
Darla & Eugene Funko Pops!
Funko Pop! wouldn’t, for the first time, create main characters in DC Films strictly for collectable items, right? That seems highly doubtful. If the actors being cast weren’t enough evidence, we now have a glimpse of the suits for Eugene Choi and Darla Dudley. This tells me two things: First, it indicates the adult-versions of the Shazam Family appear in the film at some point. Second, they really stayed close to the New 52 Geoff Johns run of Shazam for the main design of the suits. They both sport very comic-accurate looking suits that should look gorgeous on film.
The Rest Of The Shazamly
Now, nothing has been said on when these Funko Pop! figures will be available to purchase, however, expect an announcement soon. Seeing Darla and Eugene, all we need to complete the Shazam family suit reveal is Mary, Freddy, and Pedro. In addition to these Funko Pops!, the trailer “allegedly” is arriving very soon. After that, Shazam! looks to be gearing up for a massive marketing push and I’m excited to see it all.
What do you think of the new outfits? Are you excited to see the rest of the Shazam family in their suits? Let us know in the comments below.
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.
David F. Sandberg (Annabelle: Creation) directs the origin story, which stars Zachary Levi (Chuck) as the titular Hero, along with Asher Angel (Andi Mack) as Billy Batson, and Mark Strong (Kingsman: The Secret Service) in the role of Super-Villain Dr. Thaddeus Sivana. The film also stars Jack Dylan Grazer (IT) as Billy’s best friend and ultimate superhero enthusiast, Freddy, part of the foster family that includes Mary, played by Grace Fulton (Annabelle: Creation); Darla, played by Faithe Herman (This is Us); Eugene, played by Ian Chen (Fresh Off the Boat); and Pedro, played by Jovan Armand (Hawaii Five-O). Cooper Andrews (The Walking Dead) and Marta Milans (Killer Women) play foster parents, Victor and Rosa Vasquez, with Ron Cephas Jones (This is Us) as the Wizard.
