Actor Zachary Levi is all set to make it to the big screen as the new DC superhero in upcoming film Shazam!. The DC film is certainly going to be Levi’s one big break in his acting career since he has hasn’t played any major role in his previous films. He made his debut in Marvel films as Fandral in Thor: The Dark World and reprised the role in Thor: Ragnarok.
During a recent interview with Entertainment Tonight, Levi revealed his excitement about getting an opportunity to play one of the major superheroes in DC’s growing cinematic universe.
“There’s a lot of these moments in the movie, you know, they would take like six hours to shoot because we like had a bunch of different cameras on this lighting but you know it was just like ‘Shazam stands and looks,’ you know, this moment,” Levi said.
He mentioned shooting a scene in which light coming out of the Shazam! suit made him really feel like a bona fide superhero.
“There’s a couple of those moments. There was one where it was like this mist and fog and I’m standing up like this big strong heroic pose and the light from my chest was like shining through the mist and it felt really cool in the moment and then I went back and watched it in the monitors and was like ‘Holy crap, I’m a bona fide superhero and I want to look like this the whole time,’” the actor said.
When asked how did it feel trying on the Shazam! suit for the first time, Levi described the experience as surreal.
“Trying on the suit for the first time was crazy, it was insane,” Levi said. “It made it very real at that moment.”
The Shazam! actor revealed that he has only seen the trailer of the film as the rest of the fans. The next trailer is expected to show an improved version of the suit worn by Shazam.
“People keep asking me how much you have seen, I am like I have seen as much as you have seen,” Levi said. “I have seen the trailer, that’s all I have seen.”
Directed by David F. Sandberg, Shazam! is set to arrive in theaters on April 5, 2019.
