Zachary Levi’s bulking to get the superhero physique has already started for the Shazam movie.
When the actor was cast as the DC hero, fans had responded by criticizing his physical appearance. Levi had not done any superhero body prepping that time.
During an appearance at The Game Awards, though, Levi appeared to be have begun his bulking for the DC Comics role.
The appearance is different from that of the Justice League premiere, where Levi had estimated that his diet was over 4,000 calories a day and had promised that he would bulk up for the part.
Dwayne Johnson had spoken to ComicBook.com about Levi’s casting: “I think they’ve got a great plan over there with [Levi] and I wish those guys the best of luck,” Johnson said. “We had to split the idea because the obviously idea was Black Adam and Shazam. So we split it. Those guys are gonna do great with it.”
The Shazam movie is currently expected to release in 2019.
