New images suggest the Shazam! family is set for Shazam! when it hits in April

While we all sit tight waiting for the new trailer for Shazam! (we’re hearing January 19th, so stay tuned), we’re grabbing any little scraps of info we can from the inter webs…

And today we have a cool bit.

It looks like the entire Shazam! family (see image above from the current DC comic book) are set to appear in the next DC movie.

We got the new image below featuring Asher Angel (Billy), Grace Fulton (Mary), Jack Dylan Grazer (Freddy), Faithe Herman (Darla), Ian Chen (Eugene) and Jovan Armand (Pedro) on Reddit a few days ago:

And now a new image from (below) of a new tie-in colouring pad which, if you look really close, features the Shazam! family from the comics: Darla, Freddy Freeman, Pedro, Mary Marvel and Eugene, along with Sivana and Shazam!.


Man, this could be a movie that really moves the goalposts of what a comic book movie should be and, after the success of Aquaman (that $1 billion is getting close) we’re expecting big things!


We all have a superhero inside us, it just takes a bit of magic to bring it out. In Billy Batson’s (Angel) case, by shouting out one word—SHAZAM!—this streetwise 14-year-old foster kid can turn into the adult Super Hero Shazam (Levi), 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 (Strong).”

Shazam! hits theaters on April 5th, 2019.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
