The ancient wizard Shazam chooses Billy Batson as his new champion. Batson is troublesome, but true to his heart. Billy gets all the superpowers by calling out “Shazam”. Billy’s foster brother Freddie teaches him to control his superpowers and all about being a Superhero.

Will Shazam release on Netflix US?

It is highly unlikely for Shazam to release on Netflix. However, it is not impossible. There are chances that it may happen. At this stage, none of the DC Extended Universe titles were available on Netflix US.

The DC movies are available to stream on DC Extended Universe, the streaming service of HBO. This makes sense as HBO is owned by Warner Media.
