PG-13 | | Action, Adventure, Comedy
A newly fostered young boy in search of his mother instead finds unexpected super powers and soon gains a powerful enemy.
At one point adult Billy/Shazam sarcastically says to Doctor Sivana "Gee Whiz, mister!" Shazam (then known as Captain Marvel) first appeared in Whiz comics in 1940.
Thad... I said no toys at Grandfather's.
Thaddeus Sivana (1974): But it's Christmas.
The wizard imbues Billy with several superhuman powers, yet Shazam clearly lacks some of them at certain times. For example, Shazam is clearly lacking the "courage of Achilles" when he first encounters Dr. Sivana and wants to run from him rather than fight him.
SPOILER: There is a scene in the closing credits: An imprisoned Dr Sivana meets up with the alien worm Mister Mind, who proposes an alliance.
