Helen Mirren spilled the beans on Rachel Zegler’s Shazam’s character. In a recent interview with The Associated Press, Mirren discussed the long-awaited Shazam! Fury of the Gods

Throughout production of the film and the months since it wrapped, questions have been coming in regarding who Rachel Zegler’s Shazam! Fury of the Gods character could be, with some set photos revealing her to be kissing Jack Dylan Grazer’s Freddy.

It is now confirmed that Rachel Zegler will play a “key role” as one of the three goddess daughters of Atlas.

“I’m a member of three goddesses: Lucy Liu as Kalypso and the third goddess played by Rachel Zegler, who will be a huge star in a very short space of time. So there are three of us together, and that was really a great experience because it’s so infrequent that you get to spend a whole of a movie with two other women. So often you’re the only woman in the cast. Here we were a trio, and that was great. I loved it.”

The sequel will bring back Asher Angel and Zachary Levi as Billy Batson and Shazam who are set against the villainous Hespera, played by Helen Mirren. Lucy Liu will reportedly portray Kalypso who is the sister to Helen Mirren’s Hespera.

Shazam! Fury of the Gods will release on June 2, 2023. The immensely talented cast might just propel the sequel to great success. The first film grossed $366 million worldwide. We will have to wait and see how its sequel will turn out.
