Helen’s villain has had comic book fans scratching their heads because Hespera is not included in DC Comics canon.
According to Comicbook.com, Hepsera, which has been described as “a daughter of Atlas, is an original creation by screenwriter Henry Gayden.
Gayden wrote the screenplay for the original 2019 film and reunited with director Sandberg for follow-up.
In addition to Helen, Lucy Liu also appears in the sequel, playing another villainous Kalypso, who is the sister of Helen’s character.
Shazam! Fury of the Gods is slated for June 2, 2023.
