Helen Mirren’s Hespera Looks Ravenous in New Shazam 2 Set Photos

Photos from the set of Shazam! Fury of the Gods has revealed the first look at Helen Mirren’s Hespera. The sequel to the 2019 superhero hit, the upcoming installment, will see the return of Asher Angel and Zachary Levi as Billy Batson and Shazam.

Following director David F. Sandberg’s Instagram post from May hinting at the commencement of filming, the first batch of set photos has been dropped by news outlet Just Jared.

Featuring Mirren in her costume for Hespera, the actress sure looks like a formidable villain to take on. Joined by Levi in his Shazam suit, both stars were seen chatting and probably convened on set to shoot an action sequence.

Mirren’s costume included a golden medieval era armor suit along with a tiara-like headgear. She was also seen toting a sword at her side while her long white hair was kept to one side in a ponytail.

Another image shows both Levi and Mirren between takes grabbing a meal together on a picnic table. The images come a few hours after Sandberg took to his Twitter account to share a photo of the entire Shazam Family in their superhero ensembles.

Don’t know how long we can keep the new suits from leaking so here’s a pic I took the other day.

Similar set photos were revealed earlier this month of Rachel Zegler in her unconfirmed role on set. However, the images were taken from quite a distance and thus did not provide a detailed look.

Mirren was cast in the role of Hespera back in March and will take on the role as the eldest daughter of Atlas. Set to be one of the members of an antagonistic power duo, joining her is Lucy Liu as Kalypso, the sister to Hespera and the second daughter of the Greek god.

Although the movie still has ample time to release, the early production commencement does give it an upper hand over ensuring every aspect of the film is worked to perfection. 

Furthermore, with reports of Dwayne Johnson’s Black Adam wrapping up filming soon, the timing for both films’ release and convergence in the DCEU timeline might finally bring both characters together on the big screen.

But until then, here’s looking forward to more such reveals.
