SHAZAM!'s Zachary Levi Shares His Feelings on Marvel Killing Off Fandral

SHAZAM!'s Zachary Levi Shares His Feelings on Marvel Killing Off Fandral

Sandberg-directed films stars Zachary Levi as Shazam (an acronym for Solomon, Hercules, Atlas, Zeus, Achilles, and Mercury), a part that was possible because the actor was killed off in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. I knew Fandral could be fodder, would be fodder. They just didn't. They didn't.

Levi had replaced Josh Dallas, who played Fandral, one of the Warriors Three, in the first Thor movie. But from what Levi told the press on the set of Shazam! last year, Fandral getting (quickly) killed off in Thor: Ragnarok was a blessing.

The Marvel universe seems to get bigger every year, with a whole load of characters now set to get their own spinoff shows on the upcoming Disney Plus streaming service, but even with this all this expansion, there are only so many heroes that the franchise can give the spotlight to, making it inevitable that a few figures will slip through the cracks.

Despite all the drama though, Shazam is obviously a role that Levi loves and that's incredibly fulfilling for the actor.

Not to mention, a team that's one of the top four squads in its conference should typically have more than one All-Star. NBA All-Star voting is a weighted system with fans accounting for 50 percent, media 25 percent and players 25 percent.

"When I got cast as Fandral in [Thor: The Dark World], though I wasn't able to do it, I knew that the Warriors Three could be really fun characters if they ever developed them", Levi said.

"If [Fandral] didn't die, I might still be under contract with Marvel and I never would have been able to get this job. And then they'd be, 'Okay now we're ready for you, you guys go in, ' And then we'd get killed then". And I say, 'F*ck that!' This is the coolest thing ever. Levi added. "This is the coolest thing ever". I'm so happy. And, literally to be able to jump start my life.

We can't wait to see this life jumpstart in action. I'm healthier and stronger and happier that I've ever been in my life. "The people I get to work with, on and off screen here, has been tremendous".

Shazam! opens in the U.S. and United Kingdom on April 5 and in Australia on April 4.
