It's not much of an official reveal, but NetherRealm Studios has confirmed Captain Marvel's appearance in Injustice: Gods Among Us. Yes, Billy is going to be playable. In their newest video, he's referred to as Shazam, rather than Captain Marvel, but clearly, we're not seeing the old wizard.
The name, for those unaware, is actually an acronym that combines the names of other legendary figures of mythology.
- S The wisdom of Solomon
- H The strength of Hercules
- A The stamina of Atlas
- Z The power of Zeus
- A The courage of Achilles
- M The speed of Mercury
The superhero's real name is Billy Batson, an unassuming young man working a quiet job by day. Once he says the word, however, he basically becomes as strong as Superman and as quick as The Flash.
Injustice: Gods Among Us will be out on April 16.
