After photos surfaced in March of Levi in full costume on the set of “Shazam,” Men’s Health took a swipe at the actor, asking if he was wearing fake muscles under his costume. “The actor’s arms looked huge in recent set photos, but are they real?” they wrote. “We’re still not buying it.”
Despite what has been jokingly referred to by fans as “LeviGate,” Levi has remained enthusiastic about the project, regularly posting pictures on social media of his time in the makeup trailer and on set. He even compared the immense amount of hair gel he used to get Shazam’s famed slicked-back do to LazyTown villain Robbie Rotten.
Whether he’s packing muscle or padding, Levi will fly into the DC Universe when “Shazam” hits theaters on April 5, 2019.

While very comic accurate, the Shazam costume has come in for criticism from some quarters for its bright, campy design, and now – after being prompted by the fan question “Why the crap suit?” – Levi has taken to social media to address some of the flak, and shared his own opinion that it is “fucking bomb”. Check it out here…

What do you make of the Shazam costume?
The Shazam trailer actually starts off pretty cool. We see ominous thunder and lightning as we hear the familiar rock sounds of AC/DC belting out Thunderstruck. Perhaps we're about to see something super cool? Nope. Not at all.
The director has pulled some amazing footage from the old Shazam TV show, which shows our hero strapped to a moving vehicle, windshield just out of frame, to offer a pretty authentic flying scene, at least for its day. Captain Marvel
Last week, Levi first responded to the padding accusations by posting a photo taken by his trainer, Eric Blackmon, showing off the results of intense workouts to prepare to play the DC superhero.

For those who don’t know, the iconic imagery of spandex-clad superheroes taking to the water was part of Sea World’s popular superhero ski show that ran in the ’70s. While it may look a little odd to see Wonder Woman standing tall atop the likes of Batman, Superman, and the Flash, Levi is keen to relive the Bronze Age of comics and this little piece of history.
After making his Dceu debut as Batman in the 2016 blockbuster Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, Ben Affleck also made a brief cameo in 2016's Suicide Squad as the Caped Crusader, as he tried to bring down The Joker (Jared Leto).
