Shazam is the DC Comics superhero who’ll appear on the silver screen soon. Zachary Levi plays William “Billy” Batson aka Shazam in the movie. Billy is a foster kid who is set up in a home with the Vazquez who already have five other kids.
Shazam! movie has been in works since early 2000. It went through a dramatic topsy-turvy journey where it was shelved a couple of times, and the entire script was rewritten.
Billy is the chosen one, and The Wizard Shazam blesses him with superpowers. But he wasn’t the first one summoned to pass on the ancient treasure of superpowers. The Wizard didn’t choose Dr. Thaddeous Sivana, and that led the doctor on a quest to unlock all the magical powers.
While we wait for the movie, here are some brilliant Shazam wallpapers in Full HD and 4K resolution.
1. Power of the Immortals
When Billy yells Shazam, he transforms into a godlike and full-grown superhero with a golden lightning symbol on his outfit and a golden cape. The word Shazam is an acronym combining the name of six immortal leaders: Solomon, Hercules, Atlas, Zeus, Achilles, and Mercury.
2. Marvel-lous Split
Shazam was initially called Captain Marvel. DC Comics sued Fawcett Comics for a copyright infringement stating the character’s similarity with Superman. Following that, Marvel Comics picked up the trademark of Captain Marvel and published the first appearance of the character in 1967. That led DC Comics to introduce a similar character named Shazam in 1973.
3. The Power of Lightning
Shazam gets the power of Zeus, the Greek god of sky and thunder. Apart from using lightning to turn into Shazam, Billy can also use the lightning bolt in fights, healing the damage suffered during a fight, creating things, and also makes him immune to attacks as well as magic spells.
4. Face Your Fears
Shazam isn’t afraid of Dr. Thaddeus Sivana but fears what would happen if the wicked man unlocks the keys to the ultimate magic. The face-to-face standoff between the two strong guys is full of tension.
5. Symbolic by Nature
Shazam’s symbol on the brushed metallic surface-like background does look fantastic. Quite synonymous with logos of the other DC superheroes like Superman and Batman.
6. For the Minimalists
Unlike just the symbol, many would prefer a bit more dramatic but not over-the-top presence of Shazam. This wallpaper is the perfect fit signifying’s the hero’s arrival.
7. The Ensemble
Shazam’s story in the DC Cinematic Universe starts after the arrival of Steppenwolf. It’s quite likely that Shazam will join or work alongside The Justice League.
8. Yin and Yang
Black Adam is Shazam’s archenemy, a supervillain, and an antihero. It’s unlikely that he’ll appear in the Shazam movie since Dwayne Johnson is reportedly doing a solo Black Adam film.
9. The Dichotomy
The entire premise of a teenager getting superpowers and growing into an adult is intriguing. There could be many layers and textures around that thought, and this wallpaper nails one of its dark sides.
10. Young at Heart
Though Billy transforms into an adult with superpowers, he still has compassion for his fellow kind. This still photo from the movie certainly warms the heart.
11. Teens Will Be Teens
Since Billy is a teenager in ordinary life, you can find Shazam doing typical goofy and cheeky things. It could be as silly as chugging colas outside a store. A good remind to let your inner child out once in a while.
12. The Modern Superhero
Shazam may possess the power of the gods, but he is still in touch with the current world. Levi blowing a bubble from a gum while texting on an iPhone is the perfect example of that.
13. Child Is the Father of Man
Finally, I shall leave you with this fantastic wallpaper that captures the transformation of Billy to Shazam in a frame.
Just Say The Word
Every teenager wants to grow up quickly and get superpowers to destroy the evil guys, smash things, and have fun in general. What happens when young Billy gets crazy powers? What does he do to stop Sivana from disturbing the peace with his evil plans to unlock the ultimate magic?
The Shazam! movie releases on April 5 in theaters. Make sure you grab a tub of popcorn and cold drinks. Because Shazam already grabbed a bucket of popcorn and cola for himself.
