In the comics, DC had originally called Shazam Captain Marvel. "Shazam" was actually the word Billy Batson would shout to turn into Captain Marvel. Fans began to call him Shazam, and later the character's name was changed. Now, we have the action-packed Shazam! movie, which follows the origin of the comic book character as he discovers his new powers. David F. Sandberg directed the film based on the screenplay that Henry Gayden wrote, and it's full of great dialogue and some funny one liners. The best Shazam! quotes can be found below, ready for you to rank.
In Shazam!, Billy Batson (Asher Angel) is a foster kid who has been trying to fit in his whole life. When sent to his new foster home he meets Freddy Freeman (Jack Dylan Grazer), one of the children in the foster family who is obsessed with superheroes. Billy sticks up for Freddy and escapes from his bullies on a train that leads him to a mysterious wizard. This Wizard forces Billy to shout his name so he can then gain the powers of Shazam. One problem, however; Dr. Thaddeus Sivana (Mark Strong) met the wizard as a child, yet was not chosen to be Shazam. He has spent his entire life trying to gain these powers only to find Billy has been chosen. Billy, who is now Shazam (Zachary Levi), must find which powers he can use to take down Dr. Thaddeus Sivana.
