Warner Bros. Pictures and New Line Cinema presents Shazam which will be released on April 5th, 2019.
Two years after Steppenwolf’s invasion, Billy Batson, a troubled 14-year-old orphan living in Philadelphia, is set up to move into a new foster home—his seventh—with the Vazquez family and their other five foster kids in Fawcett City. One day, Billy gets on a subway car and finds himself transported to a different realm where an ancient wizard gives him the power to transform into a godlike adult superhero by uttering the word “Shazam!” Billy and his new foster brother Freddy Freeman must discover Billy’s new powers and how to use them to prevent the villain Dr. Thaddeus Sivana, who has powers of his own, from committing nefarious acts.
