And here we thought Helen Mirren was quite powerful to destroy Shazam on her own! Last month we reported that Mirren had joined the cast of Shazam! The fury of the gods, the sequel to 2019 Shazam! movie, like the villainous Hespera – whom we had heard about was “a girl from Atlas”. Now Warner Bros. has cast a second Atlas daughter, along with Variety saying this Lucy Liu signs up to play Kalypso. As far as we know, these are characters created for the movie and not existing villains from the Shazam comics, but Atlas is at least one figure in the superhero’s backstory (we got into the latter). times, but that’s where the second A of “Shazam” comes from).

We still don’t really know what this means for the Shazam! sequel, at the plot level, but it looks like he’ll focus more on the ancient origin of Shazam’s powers. There’s nothing wrong with that as a concept, but it’s still interesting that returning director David F. Sandberg chooses this “Atlas Girls” thing over Mister Mind, the psychic worm villain who appeared at the end of the first movie. We’d say he might be saving another big villain (you know, relatively) for the hypothetical third movie, but Shazam’s Black Adam and Dwayne Johnson have to fight at some point, right? People will want to see Zachary Levi hit a worm when they can see The Rock hit Zachary Levi. In both cases, Shazam! The fury of the gods arrives in June 2023, which seems a long way off.
