    Zachary Levi spoke to ET about his mental problems at the Comic Con. Recalling his mental breakdown of 2017 before he got the role in the first part of ‘Shazam‘, he said, “My whole life I’ve been struggling with clinical depression at various times, struggling with anxiety probably my entire life. I had this total breakdown and went through this life-changing, life-saving thing called therapy. I figured out what I was going through and how I got there and why I ended up being who I was. [I got] all the help I needed to get.

    He also spoke about how others can get relief as well by reflecting on their life like he did. “I think there are so many problems in the world, but if you trace all those problems back to the root, it’s somebody’s broken heart or broken mind,” he said. “Every bad thing that goes on in this world, ultimately, I think we can correct out those courses. If we just go heal people, heal their minds, heal their hearts, and start trying to figure out how to truly love themselves and us then figuring out how to love other people.”

    Levi is busy promoting the new Shazam sequel and spoke about it at Comic Con.We had more time and more budget. The first one was kind of untested. Not a lot of people knew who Shazam was. More people knew Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, all that stuff,” Levi explained. “We were this kind of little engine that could, and everyone was wondering how would the movie do. Then we did quite well, so now there’s more faith in us as a franchise.”

    Warner Bros. has been so supportive. They gave us more money, more time, some newer, cooler suits. It was awesome,” he continued. “We all got to jump back into these characters that we were already creating on the first one. Now we get to revisit them and get deeper with them, and more nuanced with them, and keep building relationships between the different characters, all that’s the fun stuff.”
