Shazam! a story of a great and funny superhero



The story of the film starts from the idea that we all have unpredictable powers of superhero, but only a little magic is needed to get them out. Billy Batson, for example, only has to say Shazam, so that from a clever 14-year-old teenager to becoming a superhero ditam, thanks to the magical touch of a wizard. A child’s soul in a super-body, Shazam takes advantage of his powers just as any teenager does: he’s having fun with them! Can he fly? Can he see through the walls? Can lightning be with your hands? Can you skip the tests? Shazam will test the limits of his abilities with the naivety and joy of a child. But he will have to learn quickly to master his powers to cope with the destructive forces of Dr. Thaddeus Sivana (Mark Strong).
