8Sivana’s Origin

Feature Detail

Oddly enough, Shazam! doesn’t begin by introducing us to the eponymous hero. Instead, it begins with an origin story for the film’s antagonist, Thaddeus Sivana. This alone is a refreshing change of pace, but it also serves as the perfect vehicle for establishing Sivana’s disdain for his family and his motivation for becoming evil, as he feels he was essentially robbed of the opportunity to possess ultimate power. This sets the stage for his lifelong quest to return to the Rock of Eternity and claim what he believes is rightfully his.
