With Zachary Levi recently showing off his big guns for Shazam!, now the villain of the movie, Mark Strong, is seen on social media featuring images and video of the actor getting into shape as well.
Trainer Giacomo Farci posted pics and video on Instagram:
Mark Strong is playing Dr. Sivana and previously spoke about the character:
‘I’m playing an evil bastard called Doctor Sivana, they are always the best characters to play, the most fun.” Mark Strong said. “I was Sinestro in Green Lantern, which I though was a rather good film, but it didn’t do what they wanted. So I feel like I’ve got unfinished business in the DC world. I played a pretty evil character in that, and he was meant to get even worse in the second one but that never happened, but I think I’m going to get the chance to do that in Shazam!, I hope so.
“I’ve been training like a mad man, I’m about to go over and see the stunt guys, I’ve been trying all of these harnesses on, and I think I’m going to be doing lots of flying around and firing electricity out of my hands,” Mark Strong offered.
Shazam! has an April 5, 2019 release directed by David F. Sandberg starring Zachary Levi as the titular character, Asher Angel as Billy Batson, Jack Dylan Grazer as Freddy Freeman, Ian Chen as Eugene, Jovan Armand as Pedro, Cooper Andrews as Victor Vasquez, Grace Fulton as Mary Bromfield, Lotta Losten in an unknown role, Mark Strong is playing the villain, Dr. Sivana, and Ron Cephas Jones is rumored as the Wizard Mamaragan.
