Just say the word.
We all have a superhero inside us, it just takes a bit of magic to bring it out. In Billy Batsons (Asher Angel) case, by shouting out one word – SHAZAM!
This streetwise 14-year-old foster kid can turn into the adult Super Hero Shazam (Zachary Levi), courtesy of an ancient wizard (Djimon Hounsou). Still a kid at heart – inside a ripped, godlike body – 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 he'll need to master these powers quickly in order to fight the deadly forces of evil controlled by Dr. Thaddeus Sivana (Mark Strong).
“After lazy reliance on phoney gravitas and blundering with its first serious stab at levity with Aquaman, DC has found a comic torch-bearer of pure heart to illuminate the path of righteousness ahead.” - London Evening Standard
“In context and considering the movie monstrosities that have preceded it, Shazam! is irrepressibly fresh and wholesome, and ultimately suggests a new and exciting future for the stars of the DC Extended Universe. Up, up and away!” - Times (UK)
