‘Shazam: Fury of the Gods’ Adds Helen Mirren in Villain Role

Following the previous Shazam: Fury of the Gods casting announcement of Rachel Zegler, the film now adds actress Helen Mirren to its cast.

Mirren will be playing Hespera. Her character is described as a daughter of Atlas. The character is most likely supposed to be one of the Hesperides, the nymphs of evening and golden light of sunsets, who were the “Daughters of the Evening” or “Nymphs of the West.” The names of these nymphs are Aegle, Erytheia, and Hespere.

With Mirren playing Hespere and Zegler playing another one of the Hesperides, we should expect another casting announcement for the third Nymph of the West.
