Zachary Levi who’s playing the title character in David F. Sandberg’s Shazam, is hard at work bulking up for his role as the superhero, as he’s been record by his friend and gym buddy Eric Blackmon as he does reps with a 80 pound dumbbell.
When Levi was first cast, many fans felts he was too small for the role as Captain Marvel is known to have a large physique, with a very bulky upper body. Since then, Levi has spoken on how he’s getting into the best he’s ever been with the role and with the few canon photos we’ve seen of him, it’s clear he’s been going up in muscle weight, which shows his dedication to the role.
