Shazam! star Zachary Levi is about to become a household name.
The actor, best known as the star of US series Chuck or the voice of Flynn Rider in Disney hit Tangled, plays the lead in DC’s first superhero outing since the billion-dollar-grossing Aquaman. It follows Billy Batson, a teenage boy (Asher Aston) who can transform into an adult superhero (Levi).
Early reviews have praised Shazam! for being a fun adventure, with The Atlantic going so far as to call it a “blockbuster straight from the Steven Spielberg era” meaning that DC most probably have another hit on their hands.
We sat down with Levi ahead of the film’s release to test his knowledge on his DC peers, including Gal Gadot’s Wonder Woman and Ezra MIller’s The Flash, who appeared in Justice League in 2017.
Upon being asked to transform himself into a human version of the music app Shazam, Levi accepted the challenge – and you can watch the results above.
Shazam! is released in cinemas on 5 April
