Zachary Levi Explains Why Movies Like 'Shazam!' Are Important

Zachary Levi appears on a panel with his young co-stars Asher Angel and Jack Dylan Grazer at the Build Series on Friday (March 15) in New York City.

The Shazam! actors were joined by co-star Mark Strong to chat about their film, in theaters April 4.

Zachary opened up about why a movie like Shazam! is so important. He said watching a kid become the superhero version of himself was “one of the most inspiring epics to be able to tell.”

“I think it’s incredibly important that along with all the very deep and very important films that are made, it’s also important to have movies that are eliciting joy in people to bring them back to places like hope and love and kindness and empathy and all of those things,” he added. He also brought up the diversity of the film and seeing different types of people on screen.
