James Corden learned the valuable lesson that just anyone can be a superhero, even if he absorbs Zachary Levi‘s powers of Shazam!
The host of The Late Late Show transformed himself into the fish creature from The Shape of Water, the child-snatching Pennywise clown from It, and Michael Myers from the Halloween movies. But when it comes to superheroics, he needs Levi, star of the DC superhero flick Shazam!, to teach him what it means to be mighty.
When Corden holds the magic staff from the Temple of Eternity and says the word “Shazam!” Levi’s powers flow through to Corden. He doesn’t get the power of super sexiness. No, this grants Corden the ability of… growing a goatee. They acquired this knowledge after intense training to test out his powers. No super strength, no super speed, no X-ray vision, and no laser eye beams to speak of. So magic goatee power it is.
Levi offered, “Maybe some day you’ll have to go undercover as a guy who watches pool tournaments on TV.”
