== TEASER ==
In Superman/Shazam! The Return of Black Adam, Clark Kent's latest interview subject is a street kid named Billy Batson. What Clark doesn't know is Billy was chosen by an ancient wizard to represent the good of man as the World's Mightiest Mortal just by saying his name, "Shazam!" Billy soon discovers he's being pursued by a centuries' old, murderous villain, Black Adam.
Jerry O'Connell provides the voice of Captain Marvel, George Newbern reprises his Justice League role as Superman, Arnold Vosloo is Black Adam and two-time Emmy Award® winner James Garner is the Wizard. Bruce Timm is the executive producer and Joaquim Dos Santos (Justice League, Avatar: The Last Airbender) is the director. Michael Jelenic (Wonder Woman) wrote the 22-minute script.
The other shorts include The Spectre, Jonah Hex and Green Arrow. The single disc DVD edition features more than an hour of extra content and the Blu-ray contains more than 2 1/2 hours of extra content.
