We all have a superhero inside us, it just takes a bit of magic to bring it out. In Billy Batson's case, by shouting out one word - SHAZAM. - this streetwise fourteen-year-old foster kid can turn into the grown-up superhero Shazam.
Saraya-jade-Bevis real life brother Zak appears in the film as a gang lieutenant See more »
Zak is seen as a young child holding a cardboard version of the WWE championship, in what appears to be 2000 from the clip he's watching. However the belt he creates is the belt introduced in 2005.
