Our minds are still boggling with the amount of money just one of Zachary Levi's Shazam costumes cost to make, partnered by the fact that there were 10 suits created for the production.
According to costume designer Leah Butler in an interview with Total Film (which we can't find to link to but SyFyWire seems to have), the costume took 16 weeks to build:
"It took 16 weeks to build the costume. We had to scan Zach's body and start building the costume even before he started his very strict regime — his diet and working out. Each suit costs, oh boy, upwards of a million? We have ten suits.
The exterior suit is a spandex suit that goes over a musculature suit, and each muscle has been sculpted on the body of Zach, so it accents and highlights his shape and size.
There is actually a battery in the back — we luckily had a cape to cover it all up or I don't know where we would have put all that stuff — and it is remotely lit through a switchboard operator. There is wiring throughout the costume. It's a 26-volt AA rechargeable battery. It lasts about two hours at full charge."
That's pretty crazy, and we can't wait to see what cosplayers do to recreate the suit!
Warner Bros. Pictures Shazam is set to hit theaters on April 5th, 2019.
