Warner Bros and DC have now released a new synopsis for their upcoming comic book movie called 'Shazam'. The plot gives us a few more details on what the movie will be about.

If you never heard of Shazam, he's pretty much like Superman although he has two versions of himself.

He's a normal 14 year old kid, but when he shouts 'Shazam' he turns into a grown man with superpowers. You can read more in the synopsis posted down below.

"We all have a superhero inside us, it just takes a bit of magic to bring it out. In Billy Batson’s (Asher Angel) case, by shouting out one word—SHAZAM!—this streetwise 14-year-old foster kid can turn into the adult Super Hero Shazam (Zachary Levi), courtesy of an ancient wizard (Djimon Hounsou). Still a kid at heart—inside a ripped, godlike body—Shazam revels in this adult version of himself by doing what any teen would do with superpowers: have fun with them! Can he fly? Does he have X-ray vision? Can he shoot lightning out of his hands? Can he skip his social studies test? Shazam sets out to test the limits of his abilities with the joyful recklessness of a child. But he’ll need to master these powers quickly in order to fight the deadly forces of evil controlled by Dr. Thaddeus Sivana (Mark Strong)."

Shazam will be released in North America on April 5th, 2019. The movie will have a much lighter tone than previous DC films and it will also add a lot more humor too.
