Zachary Levi is everywhere right now, and he's sorry. Kinda. The Shazam! star is clearly thrilled, but also humbled and a bit embarrassed at the massive marketing campaign for his DC movie. He is the face of the movie, and that face has been on billboards all over the place. Levi joked that it's a bit much, even to him:
No apology necessary. Shazam! seems to have a lot of supporters out there, and Zachary Levi's enthusiasm is infectious. He shared his advertising apology with ET on the red carpet of his movie's big Hollywood premiere.
Just last week, Zachary Levi pointed to himself in a gigantic ad in New York City. He seemed pretty happy about that, feeling like he finally made it.
He shared more of his gratitude and humility on Instagram, sharing photos from the Shazam! premiere.
As he wrote in part of that very candid post:
Wow. Good for him. This has to be such an exciting time for Zachary Levi, and the whole cast and crew.
Shazam! officially opens next Friday, April 5, but it already screened for critics and some lucky fans at preview screenings. Those early screenings actually made more money than the previews for DC's Aquaman. Critics have raved about the movie, which currently has a 93% fresh rating on Rotten Tomatoes.
So far, the ride seems to be pretty smooth for Zachary Levi and Warner Bros./DC in the wake of Aquaman's $1 billion hit -- and also in the sandwich between Marvel's Captain Marvel and Avengers: Endgame. There doesn't seem to be much pressure on Shazam! to do anything more than it's already doing. However, the whole team would clearly love to come back and do this again in Shazam! 2, and that's going to take a strong box office showing. We'll see. Here's what else is headed to theaters as busy 2019 continues.
Gina grew up in Massachusetts and California in her own version of The Parent Trap. She went to three different middle schools, four high schools, and three universities -- including half a year in Perth, Western Australia. She currently lives in a small town in Maine, the kind Stephen King regularly sets terrible things in, so this may be the last you hear from her.
