Description

We all have a superhero inside of us — it just takes a bit of magic to bring it out. In 14-year-old Billy Batson’s case, all he needs to do is shout out one word to transform into the adult superhero Shazam. Still a kid at heart, Shazam revels in the new version of himself by doing what any other teen would do — have fun while testing out his newfound powers. But he’ll need to master them quickly before the evil Dr. Thaddeus Sivana can get his hands on Shazam’s magical abilities.Release date: April 5, 2019 (USA)DirectorDavid SandbergProducerPeter SafranScreenplayHenry GaydenProduction companiesWarner Bros.New Line CinemaThe Safran CompanyDC FilmsCritic reviewsEven though Shazam! isn’t one of the most well-known superheroes from the DC comics, his origin story has turned out to be the best DC film in years.Full review
