Trivia Shazam!

'Shazam!' is the first blockbuster for director David F. Sandberg. As well as his directorial debut outside of the horror genre. "Shazam" is the magic word that turns Billy Batson into a superhero. Shazam is an acronym of the names of all the Greek gods that give him his powers: the "s" of Solomon (wisdon), the "h" of Hercules (strength), the "a" of Atlas (stamina), the "z" of Zeus (the power of creating lighting), the "a" of Achilles (will) and the "m" of Mercury (speed). Originally, 'Shazam' was gonna tell the origin of the superhero and his nemesis Black Adam (played by The Rock), however, producers decided to separate both origin stories into to different movies.
