    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!

0 respect for him. have u seen those shoulders on the suit? him claiming that it's natural is way over the top. he's nowhere near that level so he should cut the bullshit. you can't just take a geek, train him for a few months and then compare him with Cavill. a little honesty goes a long way, fuck him.

He really does look like he's in a padded suit. I agree with that magazine (not that he hasn't been putting on lean muscle) but even when he's flexing it looks like his unflexed biceps are bigger than his flexed biceps

Everyone saying Levi didn't work out at all and used only padding. Well, it is padding but it's the same withHenry Cavill and Ben Affleck's costumes it just gives more definition to the muscle look. But no matter what the case is he doesn't look like a string bean.

Good lord, you don't just explode in 6 weeks because of newbie gains. All you do is start maximising the muscle you already have, especially when you've been skinny. Yes he ate a lot. But it's very obvious he was adding the special sauce with his chicken and broccoli... There is a underground of obvious steroid use in Hollywood that no one likes to admit

Of course it's a muscle suit. Cavill and Affleck wore them too, even though they were ripped. They only hit the gym to sell the inevitable shirtless scenes. Even pro bodybuilders would have to train for years to develop the kind of shoulders you see in the Shazam costume.

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..
