Helen Mirren Joins As Main Adversary in Sequel (Shazam 2)

AFTER playing the queen, Helen Mirren will become a god. He has joined the DC comic adaptation of New Line Shazam 2 Fury of the Gods as Hespera, the daughter of the evil god Atlas.

Almost the entire Shazam support team ! 2019 will return for its sequels, including stars Asher Angel (who plays the teenage Billy Batson, who becomes possessed by the superhero powers Shazam every time he mentions his name) and Zachary Levi (the adult version of Billy, whenever he has the power of Shazam). David F. Sandberg will direct the film from the Henry Gayden script. The first film made USD366 million

Rachel Zegler ( West Side Story ) is also expected to join the franchise in the sequel. His casting was reported in February, but as to what is not yet known. It seems important. Additional cast members include Adam Brody as well as Asher Angel, Jack Dylan Grazer and Faithe Herman.

As far as we know, Hespera doesn't have an obvious comic partner in the DC universe, but given her god-like stature (a character fit for Dame Helen to play). However, it is likely that his role has something to do with the strength of Shazam, who among them has the stamina of his father, Atlas. In addition, Shazam also has muscles like Hercules, the power of Zeus, the wisdom of Solomon, the courage of Achilles and the speed of Mercury.

Mirren is no stranger to action-packed franchise films . She will also play a role in F9: The Fast Saga , reprising her role as Magdalena "Queenie" Shaw. There is also a role as a killer in RED 2010 and RED 2 .

In 2013 She won the Academy Award for best actress for playing Queen Elizabeth II in The Queen in 2006. Shazam 2 Fury of the Gods is scheduled for release in June 2023.

Shazam: Fury of the Gods is among the Warner Bros film list. which was influenced by the shift in October's release date, in addition to other DC films such as The Batman and The Flash . However, director Sandberg assured fans that the delay would not happen.

This does not affect the filming schedule planned for the sequel - nor does it run the risk of aging a younger actor past the right point for the role. Certainly, these DC franchises clearly make for the casting of absolute legend stars like Mirren as well as fellow Dame, Julie Andrews. Andrews previously appeared to play ancient sea creatures at Aquaman 2018. (aru)

The cast of Shazam 2 Fury of the Gods is growing! Director David F. Sandberg has just announced that Helen Mirren will play the villain of the DC feature film.


After having made her engine roar in Fast & Furious (where she embodies Jason Statham’s mother Magdalene Shaw), Helen Mirren will shake Billy Batson. The actress, Oscar winner for her role in The Queen, has just joined the cast of the DC film, Shazam 2 Fury of the Gods.


She will play Hespera, a character who is not directly from the comics but whose heritage is anchored there since she is the daughter of Atlas. The actress joins Zachary Levi, Asher Angel, Jack Dylan Grazer, Djimon Hounsou and Mark Strong who plays the supervillain Dr. Thaddeus Sivana.

Directed by David F. Sandberg, the feature film follows the adventures of Billy, a teenager who becomes a superhero by uttering the word “Shazam”, and is scheduled to hit our theaters on May 31, 2023.

WW84 Was More Watched Than Zack Snyder's Justice League New Data Suggests

Wonder Woman 1984's opening weekend saw more HBO Max households watch its first five minutes over Zack Snyder's Justice League, according to Samba TV.

New data suggests Wonder Woman 1984 was watched by more households in its opening weekend than Zack Snyder's Justice League. To highlight just how strange the past year has been for moviegoing, two of the biggest superhero movies in recent memory both had streaming debuts. Wonder Woman 1984 was supposed to arrive in theaters last year, but the coronavirus pandemic delayed it too many times. To prevent the film from suffering any additional pushbacks, Warner Bros. opted to release Wonder Woman 1984 in theaters on Christmas Day, as well as on HBO Max. The dual theatrical/streaming release quickly became Warner Bros.' new normal for 2021 to cope with the ongoing pandemic.

Meanwhile, Zack Snyder's Justice League was never intended to debut in theaters; in fact, it was never supposed to be released at all. Fans campaigned to see Snyder's finished cut of Justice League for years following the director's departure in the middle of filming, and Warner Bros. finally opted to send it to HBO Max. The famed Snyder Cut hit the streaming service last week and has effectively dominated the online conversation ever since.


Since streaming figures are harder to work out, it hasn't been abundantly clear as to how well Justice League performed in its first weekend. However, thanks to new data from Samba TV (via Deadline), it's reported that while the Snyder Cut had a massive debut, it wasn't bigger than Wonder Woman 1984. According to Samba TV, Justice League's first five minutes drew 1.8 million households over the March 19-21 premiere weekend. By comparison, Wonder Woman 1984's first five minutes were watched by 2.2 million households in its December 25-27 weekend. It's said Samba TV polls terrestrial smart TVs.

As only the first five minutes are really polled, it remains to be seen how many people watched the entirety of either film. Aside from that, there are several factors that likely contributed to Wonder Woman 1984 topping Justice League. For one thing, the Snyder Cut boasts a lengthy runtime of 4-hours, which could have put off those who were less invested. Additionally, it holds an R rating while Wonder Woman 1984 was a more family-friendly PG-13. Plus, it looks like Samba TV didn't include Justice League's first day, as it began streaming on Thursday, March 18.

This data shouldn't discredit Justice League's success. There's no question that many people flocked to the Snyder Cut over the weekend, and more will surely check it out in the coming weeks. The critical consensus toward Justice League has been generally positive, with many fans expressing their happiness at finally seeing Snyder's finished film. Yes, the data puts Wonder Woman 1984 on top, but Justice League still had a great weekend, and that's no small feat.
