Movie Review: Shazam!
Foster kid Billy Batson is searching for his birth mother and will do whatever he can to find her. However, he runs into trouble when a wizard decides he is his only hope for stopping the seven deadly sins/demons from being unleashed on earth. Suddenly, Billy is transformed into a superhero.
This is a great movie with lots of heart and laughs. Warning – there is a violent scene in the beginning with the villain as a child and then again when he visits his dad and brother at their company.
Zachary Levi is terrific as Shazam! Especially when he channels his old roles of Chuck and Flynn Ryder/ Tangled.
“In April 2019, The Wrap reported that Warner Bros. is developing a sequel with Henry Gayden returning to write the film along with David F. Sandberg directing and Peter Safran producing. Mark Strong will reprise his role as Dr. Sivana.”
I really loved this movie and can’t wait to see more of Zachary Levi as Shazam.
My rating 4.5 stars out of 5

Andrea R. Cooper writes fantasy, paranormal, and historical romance.
Her favorite childhood memories revolved around creating vibrant characters for her friends and then acting out their adventures. Inside her fantasy worlds of darkened forests, dragon-filled glades, and iced islands, nothing was banned. From the ethereal Elvin to the most maligned Vampires, all were welcome in her fictional realities, a stark contrast to her home, where the magical and mythical was forbidden.
