And while adults are able to discern between reel and real, kids perceive Robert Downey Jr. as Iron Man, Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman or Ben Affleck as Batman. So, when they meet them, their reaction is pure and genuine. The latest actor to be blessed with such a moment was Zachary Levi.

Zachary Levi, who has taken on the mantle of Shazam, shared a fan-art that he had received during the Brazil Comic Con.

Eventually, Zachary met the talented artist and things got a little emotional.

Yes, you can bring out the tissues and say “awwww” as loudly as you can. This moment deserves such a reaction.

Netizens were as overwhelmed as Zachary and lauded him for reciprocating the fan’s love for Shazam.

Shazam is one of the most righteous and innocent comic-book characters, and having him as a role model is one of the best decisions a kid (or anyone in general) can make. And watching Zachary Levi go beyond his call of duty to acknowledge that is certainly heart-warming for comic-book/movie fans. Let’s have more of this, shall we?
