Most superhero fans want to suddenly have superpowers, to fight evil and to do what normal people can’t do. Well it’s what happens in Shazam. Shazam is funnier and at times darker than it may look.
Before the movie is all about superpowers and fighting crime Shazam is all about family. Billy Batson is one of the biggest troublemakers in this movie universe. Billy is known for pranking Philadelphia cops and causing trouble for social workers.
Billy is soon put into a foster home by parents Rosa and Victor. Billy shares a room with Freddy. Freddy has a super big interest in DC and even has some Superman and Batman merchandise all over his room.
Even after all the love Billy has been shown by this new foster family, his only goal is to leave and search for his biological mother who abandoned him years ago.
Putting together Billy’s pain and warmth of his new home and foster family shows that Shazam makes a message about how you choose the people around you that care over the people you would hope to be with.
