Zachary Levi, now better known as Shazam!, will be hosting this year’s MTV Awards which take place on June 17 this year.

The actor took to Instagram to announce the news stating that he is hosting the MTV Awards. The video sees himself holding a golden popcorn statue to announce the news. Levi will join a long list of previous hosts including last year’s Adam DeVine, Dwayne Johnson, Russell Brand, Rebel Wilson, and Kevin Hart.

It has also been reported that viewers might see Zachary Levi perform some musical numbers as he is a singer too. He voiced Flynn Ryder in Tangled and sang the Oscar-nominated song “I see the Light” and was also nominated for a Tony award for Best Leading Man.

The categories and nominees for the MTV TV and Movie awards have yet to be announced but are likely to be released soon.
