SHAZAM! - FURY OF THE GODS Adds ELEMENTARY Star Lucy Liu As The Villainous Kalypso

Warner Bros. has added another actor to the already impressive cast of Shazam! - Fury of the Gods, with Elementary star Lucy Liu set to take on the role of Kalypso. Find out more details after the jump...

Kill Bill star Lucy Liu has been busy working on small screen projects for the past few years, starring in shows like Elementary and Why Women Kill. Now, though, she's making her blockbuster return in style by taking on a key role in DC Comics sequel, Shazam! - Fury of the Gods

The Hollywood Reporter confirms that the actress will be playing the villainous Kalypso. That's a character with little to no history in the comic books, but she's the daughter of Atlas, one of the Titans of Ancient Greece and the namesake of the "A" in "Shazam." Helen Mirren recently signed up to play the villain Hespera, a daughter of Atlas and sister to Kalypso.

While plot details are being kept under wraps, it's clear now that the Shazam Family will be squaring off with Atlas and his daughters, an admittedly unexpected direction for the sequel.

However, if Shazam!'s post-credits scene was any indication, we'll surely see more of Mark Strong's Dr. Sivana and the mysterious Mister Mind, the leader of the  Monster Society of Evil. 

David F. Sandberg returns to direct, and Shazam! - Fury of the Gods is currently set to be released in June 2nd, 2023. Shooting begins in May, so Warner Bros. will have a real head start on this one (if the last instalment is any indication, we'll probably get a lot of set photos for this sequel).
