As Scott Lang balances being both a superhero and a father, Hope van Dyne and Dr. Hank Pym present an urgent new mission that finds the Ant-Man fighting alongside The Wasp to uncover secrets from their past.
Foul-mouthed mutant mercenary Wade Wilson (a.k.a. Deadpool), brings together a team of fellow mutant rogues to protect a young boy with supernatural abilities from the brutal, time-traveling cyborg Cable.
In Philadelphia, Billy Batson is an abandoned child who is proving a nuisance to Child Services and the authorities with his stubborn search for his lost mother. However, in his latest foster home, Billy makes a new friend, Freddy, and finds himself selected by the Wizard Shazam to be his new champion. Now endowed with the ability to instantly become an adult superhero by speaking the wizard's name, Billy gleefully explores his new powers with Freddy. However, Billy soon learns that he has a deadly enemy, Dr. Thaddeus Sivana, who was previously rejected by the wizard and has accepted the power of the Seven Deadly Sins instead. Now pursued by this mad scientist for his own power as well, Billy must face up to the responsibilities of his calling while learning the power of a special magic with his true family that Sivana can never understand.Written by

The security officer who monitors the hallways of Billy and Freddy's school is named Moran. According to David F. Sandberg, Moran was named after the film's art director John Moran.
However, there was a superhero based on Captain Marvel named named Michael Moran, aka "Marvelman" (later known as "Miracleman"). He transformed into a superhero by saying a special word ("kimota", which is Atomic pronounced backwards) and got his powers from atomic energy rather than magic. See more »
Billy, in his Shazam form, accidentally rips off his backpack while trying to open it to show Freddy he stole the Superman bullet. Later, Billy is going to school with the same backpack, which appears intact. See more »
My 8 year old doesn't love superhero movies (he doesn't ask to watch them) so I was surprised when he asked to see this. After about 20-30 mins he wanted to go home because nothing was happening. We stuck it out and he was so glad we did. He loved it (especially because there was swearing - his favourite thing).
