BIG news! “Shazam: Fury of the Gods” is adding a super actor to its superhero story, with Oscar-winner Helen Mirren joining the cast as the villain Hespera.
Read the full article over at Variety:
As Variety notes, “Mirren’s role is somewhat mysterious, as Hespera does not have a clear equivalent from the DC comics. But she undoubtedly has some feelings about Shazam’s powers, which include the stamina of her father, Atlas — as well as the strength of Hercules, the power of Zeus, the wisdom of Solomon, the courage of Achilles and the speed of Mercury.”
Having Helen Mirren in a DC flick in ANY capacity is good news by us!
