These new action figures were found by the Twitter user at a local Walmart in Ohio and feature the characters with interchangeable hands which makes them all the more fun to play with.
Shazam! comes with an additional feature which allows the figure to throw a punch when you squeeze his legs together. He also wears his signature cape while Dr. Sivana’s figure comes with an exchangeable head with prop shades and an eight ball.
Recently, Shazam! made headlines after the heads over at DC announced that the film will be rated PG-13 and will be giving the audience a lighter, more comedic tone than it’s previous films in it’s DC extended universe.
Also, a new television spot gave us yet another hint that the film takes place in the same universe as Superman. This makes fans question if Shazam! will one day save the world alongside the Man of Steel or sit at the new table of Justice at Wayne Manor. Only time will tell on this one, but we’ll keep you posted as the story continues to build.

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).
Directed by David F. Sandberg, Shazam! stars Zachary Levi, Asher Angel, Mark Strong, Jack Dylan Grazer, Grace Fulton, Faithe Herman, Ian Chen, Jovan Armand, Cooper Andrews, Marta Milans, and Ron Cephas.
Shazam! will be released in theaters on April 5, 2019.
