– Woman: There’s a foster couple outside, Mr. Batson. – I can take care of myself.
– Give these people a chance. ‘Cause that’s
what they’re giving you. – Billy is a foster kid who’s
been in and out of foster homes. – Woman: This is Billy Batson. – He’s a really good kid
who wants the best, who sticks up for the other kids. – Hey. Man, sorry about that. – Zachary: And because he is pure of heart… – Wizard: Billy Baston. – …he’s transported to this wizard… – I choose you as champion. – …who endows him
with this power of Shazam. – Shazam. – He has this power
of just saying one word… …and turning into a superhero. – Aah! Aah!
– It’s me– Billy. – What is happening? – First he goes to see
his friend Freddy. – You’re the only person I know
that knows anything about this Caped Crusader stuff.
– What are your super powers? – Super powers?
Dude, I don’t even know how to pee in this thing. – Freddy is a superhero fanatic. And so when he finds out that Billy is a superhero, he’s like, “I know
exactly what to do.” – Freddy:
You’ve got super strength. – Freddy is like, “Okay, we have
to test your abilities. And, of course, they’re gonna film it. – Waah! – You okay?
Why aren’t you talking? [ groaning ] – I feel like any kid who gains
the power of being an adult is gonna be like, “You should do
things only adults can do.” Duh. – I’d like to purchase some
of your finest beer, please. Ahh! That tastes
like actual vomit. – What kid doesn’t wanna be
a superhero? – Exact–What adult
doesn’t wanna be a superhero? – Yeah, what person or kid
doesn’t wanna be a superhero? – I’m still waiting.
– Shazam! – Shazam is one of a very few
superhero characters that is genuinely stoked
to be a superhero. – Your phone’s charged.
Your phone’s charged. – What the hell! – More often than not,
you’ve got a character who is begrudgingly pulled
into this, and everybody needs them,
and they’re like, “Ohh. I have to save the world again.” Billy Batson is stoked. – You’re like a bad guy, right? – I just get to show up on set
and be like, “I get to do this? I get to fly around
and fight bad guys?” – You have bullet immunity! – You’re dead. [ imitating weapon sounds ] – Shazam!
