How Zachary Levi Got In Serious Shape For Shazam!

    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!

You can hate me for that, but i fear it could be a little too imature for me, none of the jokes i saw so far were really funny for me, and i still like Chuck. So it could end up as not beeing really a superhero movie because it tries to be funny, but its just mostly 15 year old toilet humor that is not really funny for older people.

Every single actor in a super hero movie wears a padded suit. Captain America, Thor, Bucky, Superman, Batman, Aquaman. That does not diminish the absolute killer shape these dudes get it in order to film intensely physical movies for 12-14 hours a day, 4-6 months at a time! Get it Zach, you're killing it dude!

Funny how everyone on here said it a padded custume.. Obviously ya have never lifted weight.. His arm and shoulder are on point of someone training intensely.. When you lifted weight your arms, shoulders, bicep, triceps take the most beating.. Literally every single muscle from waist up will require the use of your hand to work it.. Am not even a hardcore weight lifter but when I was lifting to gain weight, my arms are the best features of the whole body. It freaking huge.. This is in workout mode and an hour later pass workout your muscle become relax and much smaller. Also remember that every scense they take he literally have to do weight to pub those muscle out. Just like any movie that muscle are the attraction.. Go to the gym and do some lifting for a week and you know what I mean or ask anyone that you know lift weight to buid muscle.. Stop sitting there and be a shitter and accused of someone fake while you can't even do what he does to save your life..

He's not that jacked, really. They didn't give him nearly enough time to train. They should have given him 6 months. That way they wouldn't have to stuff his suit with that much padding. How did Levi "get back" at the callout? With his pictures he proved the callout was accurate. His biceps are not the least bit impressive and any normal person who doesn't know a single thing about body building can easily tell the suit is padded big time. I understand that most suits are padded in superhero movies. I just say this to that -- look at Affleck or Cavill shirtless, then look at Levi. There is a massive difference.

But that's not his real body in that suit, right? It looks like it's a lot of padding on top of whatever real muscle he has, to the point that is actually looks like he's wearing one of those soft muscle suits.

Honestly, when I saw the first trailer of Shazam I thought for sure that there's no way that skinny dude from Chuck can be that huge. But after recent photos of him resurfaced with a more fit body in promos, interviews, I can believe that. Hell, if Rudd and Pratt can go hero, this guy can too.

Idk why he denies the padding. His suit is obviously padded and there's no shame in that. They pad Henry Cavill's suit and Ben Affleck's suit and they're way bigger than Zachary.

Whilst Zach is looking mighty fine (Chuck 4ever!), it's the costume design, whatever they used bulks the shape and therefore doesn't look true to Zach's body form. Like... it's firm? So it bends instead of conforms, and looks super fake. Zach doesn't need to be ashamed that DCU costume design is shit because we have all the proof needed that his body rocks and we know he's got real muscles. Actually reminds me of Conan's SDCC costume and I wouldn't be surprised they used the same company. I imagine they scanned Zach's body and then designed his costume to that scan including where the muscles should go, like in Conan's SDCC remote. MCU's are always far superior, more natural look - they seem to just use more spandex-like material - and conforms to the actor's body, so you avoid that cartoon-y fake muscles look.

Watching him train and seeing his muscles in a non pumped up state (a lot of movies have the actor pump up their muscles before the shoot to look bigger and more defined) I can say for sure that there is NO padding in this dudes costume. He is big. That is it.

Maybe is's just me, but the costume does look to be altering his look a little. The main part for me is the shoulders and the chest. It just doesn't look natural. I am not saying that he is padding his costume. In fact I think it is more the fault of the costume designers. Side note: I am so surprised about how much Zachary Levi has changed, after all I haven't seen him since he did Chuck.
