Helen Mirren will be the Big Bad of Shazam: Fury of the Gods

Helen Mirren is joining the cast of Shazam: Fury of the Gods as the villain Hespera, the daughter of Atlas.

The sequel to New Line and DC Comics’ 2019 film Shazam!, also stars Zachary Levi, Jack Dylan Grazer, Marta Milans, Asher Angel, Meagan Good, Faithe Herman, Adam Brody and Rachel Zegler. mDavid F. Sandberg is returning to direct the sequel from a screenplay by Henry Gayden.

There are no plot details, but The Wrap does say it will continue the story of teenage Billy Batson who, upon reciting the magic word “Shazam!” is struck by the Living Lightning of the gods and transformed into his adult superhero alter ego, Shazam.

I did enjoy the first film and liked the blend of comedy and action. Helen Mirren should make an excellent villain and I wonder if she will be joined by anybody else?

Peter Safran is producing through The Safran Company. “Shazam” is based on the DC character created by Bill Parker and C.C. Beck.

Shazam! Fury of the Gods will be released on June 2, 2023.
