Helen Mirren, supervillain? After her turn in the Fast and Furious franchise as Mama Shaw, it may not be a stretch. But she’s about top go full-on god level in the sequel to Shazam. As part of a Shazam! Fury of the Gods sizzle reel shown at DC FanDome, Mirren’s Hespera and Lucy Liu’s Kalypso display their suits and powers. And that’s not all. With minotaurs, manticores, cyclopses, harpies and a mythical menagerie to make Ray Harryhausen proud this sequel brings on the beasts. Locations spanning Athens, Philadelphia, the Rock of Eternity, the Library of Eternity, and Mount Olympus come into play. Which makes us wonder how these Greek gods might interact with Wonder Woman’s.

But perhaps the most pressing question remains unanswered. Will that joke cameo by Sinbad actually happen? His appearance at last year’s FanDome seemed to imply it, but that may have just been a one-off, for fun.
Shazam! Fury of the Gods hits theaters June 2, 2023. That’s a long wait, but it looks well worth it.
