Helen Mirren has played the Queen, Luke and Owen Shaw’s mum in the Fast and the Furious franchise and now she’s joining Warner Bros. DC Cinematic Universe.
The Oscar-winning actress has been cast in David F. Sandberg’s Shazam! Fury of the Gods as Hespera, daughter of Atlas, who is supposedly one of the film’s villain.
Mirren joins newcomer Rachel Zegler, who will reportedly play her sister. There’s no real indication of how the characters will fit into the story as they are new to DC lore.
