In 2004, he had a relationship with a woman named Marilyn and the two had a son named Billy. At some point, he left Marilyn, leaving her and their son alone.

In 2008, he was arrested for an unknown crime, and was put in jail somewhere in Florida, and has been there ever since.[1]




Behind the Scenes[]

  • Originally, in the early drafts of the Shazam! screenplay, both of Billy Batson's parents were going to be revealed to be deceased during the present day events of the film. During the second act, Billy Batson would find a cemetery in Philadelphia where both of his parents had been buried. The scene was later rewritten when the Head of DC Films, Walter Hamada called up writer Henry Gayden to suggest that Billy instead find his mother but be rejected by her. Although Gayden initially put up strong opposition to the change, he quickly grew to love it an hour after hearing the suggestion.[2]
