In the 2019 original from DC Films and New Line, we focused on young foster kid Billy Baston being placed into a group home run by Victor and Rosa Vazquez, who have five other foster kids: Mary, Pedro, Eugene, Darla and Freddy. When at school, Billy saves Freddy from two bullies and is chased into the subway where he escapes from them. This leads to Billy being summoned by a dying wizard who chooses him as champion to transfer and carry on his magic if he just holds onto the staff and says his name…Shazam!
