While the motivation behind Liu’s villain is currently under wraps, we do know that Kalypso is the sister of the wicked Hespera, who is being played by Helen Mirren. In Greek mythology, it is known that the sisters are the daughters of the God Atlas. And since Atlas is one the sources of Shazam’s powers in the comics, we can most likely expect some all-powerful interactions between the heroes and villains.


The filmmakers behind Shazam will be returning for Fury of the Gods. Shazam actor Zachary Levi will also be returning, alongside Shazam’s teenage counterpart Billy Batson, played by Asher Angel.


Are you excited to see Shazam face off against the daughters of Atlas?
