After ‘Shazam!’ was aired on April of this year, fans could not help but notice Zachary Levi’s bulky superhero physique.
Zachary Levi even took to social media to share photos of him working out, to show fans that he has indeed bulked up for the role.
Now, the 39 year old actor has admitted on Twitter that his costume was “a little padded.”
“I meeeaaann…it was a liiiiiittle padded,” Levi tweeted.
Levi re-tweeted a fan who said that some were “still salty people thought it was padding.”
According to Pink Villa, superhero fans may have compared Levi’s Shazam to Ryan Reynolds’ Deadpool, in terms of antics and way of character.
Levi himself told people at a convention that he hoped the second movie would come out as soon as possible following “Shazam!’s” success.
“I know that I’m gonna have a conversation with my bosses pretty soon about what the idea is and where we’re going with the new movie,” Levi said at CCSP. “But all I really know is that New Line, our studio, and Warner Brothers, our parent studio, and DC, and our producers and executives and everybody who’s involved in all of the decision making, they’re all very happy with what we did. They want to do even better the second time around, and they are crafting a story right now as we speak about what that sequel is going to be.”
