“Shazam: Fury of the Gods” is adding a new villain to its superhero story, with Lucy Liu joining the cast as the villain Kalypso.
Read the full article over at Variety:
Helen Mirren was already on board to play the villain Hespera and now we have a second villain in the mix. As the article on Variety points out both Hespera and Kalypso are daughters of the Greek god Atlas - one of the seven gods that gives Shazam! his powers.
As a guy whose favorite superhero movie is ‘Shazam!’ and who has had a crush on Liu for over 25 years this is incredible news for me! As the article itself says, “Lucy Liu is officially a god.” Amen to that! She’s been a goddess for long enough! She won ‘Best Villain’ at the 2004 MTV Movie Awards for her character in ‘Kill Bill: Vol. 1’ and she’s no stranger to action films having done ‘Ballistic: Ecks vs. Sever’, ‘The Man With The Iron Fists’, ‘Shanghai Noon’ and, of course, both ‘Charlie’s Angels’ films.
What do y’all think of Kalypso joining the movie and Liu portraying her?
