The synopsis of the first film
There is a superhero inside each of us, it just takes a little magic to bring it out. In the case of Billy Batson just say the word “SHAZAM!”. This 14-year-old adopted boy can transform into the adult superhero Shazam, thanks to an ancient sorcerer. Preserving the heart of a child in a handsome, godlike body, Shazam does what any superpowered kid would do: have fun! Can he fly? Does he have x-ray vision? Can he shoot beams from his hands? Can he skip his homework? Shazam decides to test all his powers with the light-heartedness typical of children. But he must learn to control them to counter the evil forces controlled by Dr. Thaddeus Sivana.
