Why is Shazam's muscle suit hated, but Batfleck's isn't?
@modernww2fare: Um not sure what u r trying to prove with this; I meant in the fact that Batfleck’s costume is black and grey....and that makes a huge difference in how someone looks in an outfit. Also I don’t think Shazaam and Batflexts muscle suits are the same material.
The bat suit looks drastically better than Shazam’s suit, that red suit looks so unreal I though it was cgi the first time looking at it on a trailer. Also Zachary Levi doesn’t even have the muscle composition to compliment his suit.
He's a pretty buff dude though
@modernww2fare: I suppose the suit is a little too colorful for those who were expecting Shazam to be a little darker in regards to tone. I just hope this movie doesn't set the DCEU back to where it was. Wonder Woman was a step in the right direction, Suicide Squad did moderately well and Aquaman made a billion dollars.
@modernww2fare: no he’s not buff, this is coming from a person who lifts weights. There is a difference in saying you worked out for your role. You have actors like Zachary Levi for Shazam and then you have people like mark whalburg and Ben Affleck who will put pounds of muscle on to play a role.
Like a lot of people have said, I think the lighting (Zack Snyder tends to prefer desaturated blue hues, which I think can give off a darker "realistic" effect) as well as the color (bright colors tend to look more artificial and goofy) have to do with it. I personally think the costume looks fine, and even if it is partly padding, I don't really care as long as the final result looks passable.
I actually like the Shazam suit better. Affleck is pretty chubby tbh. There were a few scenes in Justice League where he didn't tuck his stomach in and you can see his Bat-Belly. Kind of distracting. Shazam is supposed to be silly, so the goofy outfit works for him.
