Charlie’s Angels veteran Lucy Liu has now joined the cast for DC Comics‘ upcoming Shazam! sequel Shazam! Fury of the Gods.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Liu will be playing the villain Kalypso, the sister of Helen Mirren‘s Hespera. While neither are original characters within the Shazam! comics, the two are both daughters of the Greek Titan Atlas, one of the heroes from Greek mythology that makes up the acronym Shazam and contributes powers to him.

The two will be joined by returning actors Asher Angel and Zachary Levi, who’ll both reprise their roles as Billy Batson and the titular superhero. David F. Sandberg is also back to direct the sequel, which will once again be written by Henry Gayden. Production was planned to begin earlier last year but ultimately got delayed due to the ongoing Coronavirus pandemic. Filming is now reportedly commencing within the coming weeks.

For now, Shazam! Fury of the Gods is scheduled for release on June 2, 2023.

Elsewhere in entertainment, Netflix is developing a live-action Gundam film.
