Helen Mirren joins the cast of 'SHAZAM! Fury of the Gods'
Helen Mirren is joining the DCEU!
Sources confirm Mirren and West Side Story’s Rachel Zegler are confirmed to play two of the daughters of Titan God - Atlas - who “may or may not be of ill intent.”
Though details about DC and New Line's anticipated sequel are being kept under wraps, “Fury of the Gods” title revelation at DC Fandome provided a small clue as to what to expect come 2023's release.
In Greek mythology, Atlas is the son of original Titan Iapetus and Oceanid Clymene who stood opposite Zeus, son of Titan Cronus. Sources say Mirren’s character is named “Hespera” a daughter who, in character name, is not identified as one of the known seven powerful daughters told in Greek mythology. So it’s anyone’s guess as to which daughter’s align with Mirren and Zegler’s characters in script.
What we do know is Zachary Levi, Asher Angel, Jack Dylan Grazer, Adam Brody, Faithe Herman, Meagan Good, Michelle Borth, Marta Milans are all set to reprise their roles with 1990's Kazaam! genie - Sinbad - joining the cast (see poster).
Shazam! Fury of the Gods is expected to begin shooting in May with a scheduled release on June 2, 2023. David F. Sandberg is confirmed to return along with 2019’s screenwriter Henry Gayden.
