Generation on Shazam! Fury of the Gods is ongoing, with new pics of the cast unveiled previously currently by the director, and now new visuals from the established have arrived on-line offering a first look at Helen Mirren in costume. The 75-year-old Oscar winner will just take on the section of villain position of Hespera for the film, a seemingly primary creation as no 1 by that identify can be discovered in the web pages of DC Comics. It was formerly noted that her character is “a daughter of Atlas,” who is certainly a character in DC Comics lore, bearing the weight of the heavens on his back again. She’ll also seem in the movie alongside Lucy Liu who will perform the villain Kalypso, sister of Hespera.

Not existing in the new film even so is Mark Strong who will NOT be returning as Physician Sivana, the villain of the initially Shazam! motion picture. Talking with ComicBook.com in a former job interview the actor told us: “You are not heading to see me in the sequel. At last, I am at last permitted to say it. I have had to kind of chunk my tongue for so very long, but I assume they’re about to get started filming in Atlanta and I’m really content to give way to Helen Mirren and Lucy Liu, who I consider are likely to make a few of wonderful villains. I indicate, judging by the performances by Emma Thompson and Emma Stone in Cruella, it is time for the female villains.”

Robust did tease to us that he could return in the future, adding: “Effectively, you know, possibly he is long gone unfinished with Mister Intellect and we’ll be back more down the line, who is aware.”

Director David F. Sandberg, who returns guiding the camera, propped DC fans up for the sequel’s villain switcharoo past year as DC FanDome, when he sort of backhand boasted about what variety of villain Fury of the Gods would be bringing to the table:

“I cannot definitely discuss about villains or villain, but I consider a whole lot of persons will be astonished,” Sandberg reported. “It’s gonna be a very little sudden.”

Shazam! Fury of the Gods will convey again Billy Batson (Asher Angel) and his foster family members, including Freddy (Jack Dylan Grazer), Eugene (Ian Chen), Pedro (Jovan Armand), Darla (Faithe Herman), and Mary (Grace Fulton). Zachary Levi returns the moment once more as the titular hero. The sequel has been delayed no significantly less than 3 periods because of to the COVID-19 pandemic stalling and halting its generation. At this time the sequel is scheduled to be released in theaters on June 2, 2023.
