In the movie Shazam!, there is a scene where, during Billy's first fight with Sivana, he winds up in a toy store and throws a plastic statue of Batman (which exclaims a recording stating "I'm Batman") at Sivana.

You can see it at 3:18 in this clip of the movie on YouTube.

Is this statue a real piece of DC merchandise, or was it just a movie prop that was made specifically for this scene in the movie? Some of the other items on the shelves in that scene seem to be DC merchandise in boxes labelled with the DC logo, so it seems possible that they're real, but I'm not sure and I can't find anything with a quick Google search.

This appears to be a Big-Figs Colossal DC Universe Batman 48.5″ Gotham Guardian Action Figure with Bat Signal Light

A tall plastic Batman figure with the classic look: grey suit with black highlights on the gloves, pants, boots, cowl and cape wearing a yellow utility belt. It stands in a cut out box on the feet only

    Yeesh, at that size and price you'd think they could at least give the shoulders a decent range of motion... :-) Aug 20, 2020 at 14:10

    @T.J.Crowder, Re, "decent range of motion..." But then it wouldn't be an "action figure" would it? It'd be a big old doll instead. What true Batman fan would ever be caught playing with dolls? Aug 20, 2020 at 17:50

    Does it actually say "I'm Batman", or was that something the movie added in? The product page you linked to doesn't say anything about it having any recorded audio.

    @nick012000 - It's got a projecting bat-signal (from the chest) which can be toned down to use as a nightlight, but there's no audio; youtube.com/watch?v=iN20SuZzSDI

It's real, though I can't locate the exact reference (yet).

The movie's director talked about the toy store scene for CinemaBlend, explaining that they couldn't use action figure of non-DCEU characters. Notably,

No, they're all sort of real DC toys that are in there. I mean, some were like, 'Hey, you can't have that character, because that character's not in the universe yet. You have to stick to these characters.'
