Zachary Levi has changed the mind of the internet about his Shazam! physique, one Tweet at a time.
The famed actor has been taking a lot of crap from haters on the internet that his muscles are not authentic and that the infamous Shazam! suit is being padded to help the slender performer look the part. According to Levi and trainer Eric Blackmon, it is all real and the use of pads is not necessary. Yesterday, in an attempt most likely to silence his negative critics, Levi took to Instagram with a shirtless pic showing off his hard work at the gym. Fans were more than excited, for a number of different reasons, to see they will be getting the Shazam! they deserve.

Its safe to say those aren’t pads under his skin. Zachary Levi has been putting in some serious work into becoming the DC hero from the looks of that post. From the reactions, the fanboys are impressed and the ladies are excited about different reasons. It seems Levi’s chiseled physique will be converting several ladies over to the world of the DCEU. But one thing is for sure he has turned some haters into believers.
It never easy to transform into a superhero. Zachary Levi is definitely new to the superhero world and he has what it takes both mentally and physically to be successful. Zachary has overcome adversity in the gym and with the fans to inevitably get the results needed to become Shazam! This is a true testament to the filmmakers making the right decision in their casting of Levi. If this situation has shown us anything its that he can take a hit and keep moving forward. It is pretty safe to say from the positive reactions that the negativity toward Levi’s physique and the accusations of its lack of authenticity can finally be silenced so fans can gear up for a great film around this time next year.
“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, Grace Fulton, Jack Dylan Grazer, Cooper Andrews, Marta Milans, Faithe Herman, Ian Chen, Jovan Armand and Mark Strong as Doctor Sivana.
Shazam! is scheduled to be released in theaters on April 5, 2019.
