Release date: April 5, 2019
We all have a superhero inside usÂ—it just takes a bit of magic to bring it out. Billy Batson (Asher Angel), a streetwise 14-year-old foster kid, turns into the adult superhero Shazam (Zachary Levi) by shouting out one wordÂ—SHAZAM!, courtesy of an ancient wizard.
Still a kid at heartÂ—inside a ripped, godlike bodyÂ—Shazam revels in this adult version of himself by doing what any teen would do with superpowers: have fun with them! Can he fly? Does he have X-ray vision? Can he shoot lightning out of his hands? Can he skip his social studies test? Shazam sets out to test the limits of his abilities with the joyful recklessness of a child. But heÂ’ll need to master these powers quickly in order to fight the deadly forces of evil controlled by Dr. Thaddeus Sivana (Mark Strong).
