Shazam! is the brand new DC movie that’s hit the silver screen, with the movie receiving absolutely rave reviews so far.

The film stars Zachary Levi and Asher Angel as its leads, with Asher as a 14-year-old boy who turns into a super-adult (Levi) whenever the titular word is uttered.

Some have said it’s along the lines of Tom Hanks’ BIG, with a superhero twist and plenty of comedy moments.

There are also a few different superhero references in there too, which left potential viewers wondering whether Superman is part of this movie or not?

Beware there are some spoilers ahead as to whether this is true.

Shazam! is set in the same universe as Man of Steel, Batman V Superman, and Justice League.

The main character, Billy, has a foster brother, Freddy, who loves Superman so much that he even has a bullet that bounced off of the hero’s body.

When Billy accidentally drops the bullet into a grate, he knows he has to make it up to Freddy. So, at the end of the film, who else but Superman himself to meet the little boy.

Interestingly, though, you only see the bottom part of Mr. Kent’s body in the scene. This is because Man of Steel actor Henry Cavill couldn’t film the cameo due to a scheduling conflict.

How to watch Shazam!

Shazam! is already out in cinemas here in the UK, having been released on 5 April.

It’ll be showing in theatres across the country.
