    If you want to play a costumed superhero, then you need to look the part, and that means intense workouts coupled with an insane diet. Let's take a look at how Zachary Levi went from supergeek to superhero, and got ripped for Shazam!
    When Zachary Levi agreed to take on Shazam as his next big role, he essentially agreed to make the gym his second home. After all, this is a character who has stood his ground in a number of scraps with Superman over the years. If this confrontation is ever going to play out on the big screen, then Levi has to at least keep pace with Henry Cavill, assuming Cavill is still playing the Man of Steel by the time a crossover is viable. The movie's official synopsis even described Shazam as having a "ripped, godlike body," so there's little wonder Levi began hitting the weights almost every day.
    During a chat with former Smallville Lex Luthor actor Michael Rosenbaum, Levi said he's working out five or six days a week.
    That's a lot of gym time no matter who you are, and all that time pumping iron definitely shows.
    When someone who doesn't work out regularly starts hitting the gym hard, they usually experience what's known as "newbie gains."
    This was evidently the case for Levi, who managed to pack on an impressive amount of pounds within his first six weeks of training. He told Rosenbaum in February 2018:
    Levi gave a similar account of his early gains when Variety caught up with him almost a year down the line. Speaking to the Hollywood trade at the New York City premiere of The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel season 2, the actor revealed that he'd started seeing results right away:
    "I immediately put on about 24 pounds and then we carved that down in about half. So I've been hovering around 215 pounds, and I'm in the best shape of my life and stronger and happier and healthier than I've ever been." Keep watching to find out how Zachary Levi got in serious shape for Shazam!

That is what I still do not understand, make the actors gain muscle and then put them in a suit with padding that even increases the actor's frame. I know that even if the suit were made of thin cloth, the actor's true musculature would not be appreciate in detail, and I know they are trying to emulate the comic draw of the muscle but I think a padded suit is counterproductive.

I’m not saying this guy did, honestly his physique is not “super” impressive. But yeah, Ben Aflec, Christian Bale, Jake gyllenhall, (maybe Henry Caville) most likely use steroids to get in shape. At their age it takes way longer than a few months to make the gains they made naturally. There’s no shame in it in my opinion but you gotta be honest if you’re doing it. It gives people a false understanding of fitness and working out. I’m 25 and don’t need anything to look the way I want, but I will probably consider steroids in my late 30s and/or 40s if physique is still important to me. It might not be. But yeah all of these pieces about how actors get in shape are bullshit. No doubt they are working hard and eating right. But the gains at their age in the time frames they say are just unreasonable. I don’t know why I posted this for this guy. He looks natty to me, but it’s possible. It is a great shortcut if you need gains in a short period of time.

How Zachary Levi Got In Serious Shape - Going to the gym, get trained by professionals and having your meals prepped for you by someone else. Also having all that paid for by the studio, and have it become your full time job. That's how actors get into shape. It's unrealistic for the average Joe to see the same results that quickly, because life

He WAS wearing padding in the suit, but he also got a lot bigger. Affleck had padding in his suit but he also got into really good shape. There’s nothing wrong with wearing some padding in a superhero costume, and it’s probably helpful to be in shape underneath the suit.

Leading ladies have it so much easier - (in most cases) they only need to lose weight to be in movies. The male leads have to be ripped and toned - even if they're not playing super-heroes.

the hell....using padding on movies is a standard practice, it makes for that extra bulge portrayed on comics, but padding can't fake the basic mass needed for the aesthetics of the characters.

I think it was padding a little but it’s also but only slightly. He’d have to do steroids to be that big, and work out for like more then a year, and he’s a better actor then a bodybuilder. Plus the material for the suits I think, I dunno they use weird material that makes it look more fake. It’s,like Ben Afflecks suit, it’s the same material. It’s slightly fake.
